American Idol Reveals Top 30 for Season 13 — With A Twist! SEE FULL LIST HERE!

Truth rating: 10

By Shari Weiss


“American Idol” revealed the full Top 30 for season 13 on Thursday with one big twist.

Unable to decide between Ben Briley and Neco Starr for the final men’s spot, viewers at home can vote for the contestant they wish to stay.

The judges will make the final cut at the start of next week’s live episodes.

That means, for now, the Top 30 is really 31.

Among those advancing are early standout Spencer Lloyd and the former “X Factor” contestant who missed the Top 16 cut in 2012, Jillian Jensen.

Dad of two Casey Thrasher also survived, along with baby-faced Jordan Brisbane, 15-year-old Bria Anai, and musician Sam Woolf.

The show also welcomed its first openly gay contestant with M.K. Nobilette.

In all, there are 15 women and 16 men who will perform live next Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, in hopes of making the Top 13 on Thursday in the first major viewer vote of the season.
