American Idol Season 12 has premiered last week showing auditions in Newark, New Jersey and Chicago, Illinois. And for its January 23, 2013 episode aired today, it featured the auditions held in Charlotte, North Carolina.
But as early as December, the spoiler list of American Idol Season 12 Top 40 contestants (20 males, 20 females) has already leaked online.
I saw the Top 40 list first at the blog site TIP (TheIdolPad) and it's been re-posted already in various "Idol" sites.
This is actually the case in every new season of American Idol. Before the airing of who made it to Hollywood and Las Vegas rounds, the world already knows who they are as spoiler list leaks online.
And for American Idol 2013, the rumored Top 40 contestants are as follows:
TOP 20 MALES
Curtis Finch Jr.
Gurpreet Singh Sarin
Josh "JDA" Davila
TOP 20 FEMALES
Jenny Beth Willis
ABS-CBN News has reported yesterday that 3 of the rumored Top 40 contestants on American Idol 2013 are Pinoys.
They are Bridget Jett Hermano from Seattle, Washington, Adriana Latonio from Alaska and Bryant Scott Tadeo from Hawaii.

Bryant Tadeo's Audition Photo during American Idol Season 11 (2012) where he reached only up to the Hollywood round. He auditioned again for Season 12 and is said to have made it to the Top 40.
Last season, Fil-Mexican Jessica Sanchez was almost the winner when she finished 2nd, the highest placement by a contestant with Pinoy blood in American Idol.
Will a Filipino finally be named as American Idol winner this 2013?
The Filipinos have another reason to get hooked on American Idol Season 12 once Jett or Adriana or Bryant make it as a Top 24 semi-finalist and eventually as a Top 10 finalist. - Mykiru.ph
