“American Idol” Country Contestants Still Standing

American Idol

“American Idol” has been busy cutting down the number of contestants over the course of Hollywood week and they have finally reached a decision leaving us with the coveted top 40…20 ladies and 20 gentlemen! According to People.com a female hasn’t won the show since Jordin Sparks in 2007! So perhaps this could be the year of the women! This year brings us 4 contestants that may bring a country flare to the show!

Janelle Arthur: 22 years old from Tennessee
Paul Jolley: 22 years old from Tennessee
Kree Harrison: 22 years old from Texas
Jimmy Smith: 25 years old from Tennessee

 While Rachel Hale hasn’t really been singing country songs, she is a southern girl with a tone to her voice that would be well suited for country music. I wouldn’t be surprised if we saw her explore the genre a bit more over the course of the show.

Next week the stakes get higher and things continue to progress as the contestants head to Vegas to perform…the pressure is ON!
