Well, America, it’s your turn now. On Thursday’s episode of American Idol (Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET, on FOX), the judges whittled the contestant pool from 42 down to 24 hopefuls, plus one, yet-to-be-named male for good measure. Next week, the show will commit their pop dream destinies into your hands. The guys will sing live on Tuesday, followed by the girls on Wednesday, and your preliminary verdicts will be read on Thursday.
