TV Guide interviewed the Top 12 contestants. Tidbits include:

Fantasy song choices. Chris Richardson hopes to sing a little Maroon 5. Chris Sligh wants to do “Know,” an original song. (Heh, good luck with that.) Lakisha Jones would love to sing — get ready for this, it’s a shocker — “I Will Always Love You.” Sigh. Lakisha. Try to be a little more diverse, please?

Musical inspirations. Melinda Doolittle and Lakisha Jones go for the safe choices of Stevie Wonder and Whitney Houston, respectively. Brandon Rogers looks up to Alison Krauss (awesome!), while Phil Stacey admires Melinda Doolittle (sweet!), and Chris S. digs anyone Elliott Yamin ever admired, plus Lynyrd Skynrd and Jason Mraz.

Looking into the future. If the whole Idol thing doesn’t work out, all the contestants say they will continue to sing and hope to release CDs. Jordin Sparks and Brandon hope to also obtain medical degrees, while Lakisha just wants a stable homelife.

    Chris R didn’t say that. Chris Sligh did.

    You are right, looks like I accidentally hit the R key when I should have hit the S key. I will correct immediately. Thanks!

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
