American Idol, The Day After: Hollywood Week, Night 4 Dish

Last night, this season's "American Idol" top 40 were revealed, and today, my "The Day After" co-host Matt Whitfield and I have mixed feelings about the result. While we're extremely excited about some of this year's hopefuls (namely Angela Miller, Candice Glover, the zany Zoanette Johnson, and, speaking for myself, JDA and Charlie Askew), we're disappointed by a few glaring omissions, like the once-again-robbed David Leathers Jr. We're also puzzled by this season's overall uneven editing, which has left us with many unfinished, dangling storylines and even more nearly unrecognizable names on the top 40 list.

Check out our discussion of last night's Hollywood Week episode, focusing on the solo girls, and feel free to weigh in with your own opinions on Season 12's final top 40.
