The Top 24 of Season 11 of 'American Idol' was signed, sealed and delivered on tonight's episode (Feb. 23.) Next week, we move onto the live shows where America's votes count. We also will get to see the hopefuls in their element and we'll get a clearer picture of who the front-runners are, since it's still TBD.

There is a twist we need to share with you -- one of the four eliminated boys will return for a chance to compete for another slot, so it will be 13 males instead of 12 and a Top 25 instead of a Top 24. That battle will take place between David Leathers, Jr., Johnny Keyser, Richie Law and Jermaine Jones. Who will win? Tune in next Tuesday to find out.

Oh, and Steven Tyler mooned the camera and dove into the water surrounding the stage at the end of the ep. So much for family entertainment.

Here's the rest of the Top 24 for Season 11 of 'American Idol.'


Shannon Magrane: She has always been an early favorite and stunned with 'The Trouble With Love Is' during her perf for the judges. Hot, humid, and happening. [Watch Here]

Skylar Laine: She tried very hard during her final audition, but was celebrated for her raw, country style, which the judges hope she doses with rock as the season progresses. [Watch Here]

Hallie Day: She was an early fave, so this was no surprise.

Hollie Cavanaugh: She came so close to making it last year. Good thing she persevered because she's going through now. Hallie and Hollie -- that's going to get confusing. [Watch Here]


Adam Brock: After yesterdays "mean" cliffhanger, he found out he's going on, amid sobs. [Watch Here]

Jeremy Rosado: The judges noted that he is a team player, cheering on his fellow competitors. He also hits high notes like a mother effer. [Watch Here]

Chase Likens: Another chance for country music in the form of Chase Likens.

Aaron Marcellus: He was sent packing last year, but made it through this season. Seconds chances abound this season.

Deandre Brackensick: He was also sent packing last season, but made it through this time around. See above regarding second chances. [Watch Here]

Eben Franckewitz: His boyish sweetness earned him a spot. [Watch Here]

The Rest:

Jermaine Jones: He sang 'I Believe in You and Me' in alternately high and low, but an ultimately rich tone and revealed that he is a mama's boy. He was super emotional when he found out he wasn't moving forward. But everyone loved him and there is always next year. There is also a place for him, since he is so talented, even if it's not on 'Idol.' * [Watch Here]

Shelby Tweeten: We saw her early on, since much time was devoted to her during her audition because of her bipolar disorder. She showed promise, but it was not enough to send her up to the Top 24.

Scott Dangerfield: He made it to Hollywood last week, too, but bowed out. His rendition of 'Folsom Prison Blues' wasn't enough to upstream him further. [Watch Here]

Ariel Sprague: She did well, despite having a shaky first audition. Not well enough, sadly.

David Leathers, Jr: We're shocked that he is not moving forward. There is always next season, DL, Jr. *

*These two might get a stay of execution next week, thanks to the twist of a Top 13 with the boys.
