Tonight starts with round four, which started in Los Angeles where the remaining 61 contestants boarded a bus and went to the Mirage Casino in Las Vegas.  Here it was Beatles Theme Night and the contestants were grouped in duals and trios.  When round four was completed 21 contestants were cut and the remaining 40 contestants went back to Los Angeles for round five.  This round consisted of the contestants singing a final solo for the judges and from these 40 contestants, the top 24 would be chosen.

The first hour of tonight’s two hour episode was the Beatles Theme in Las Vegas resulting in the top 40 contestants.  The second hour was the beginning of round five where the final top 24 will be chosen.  This was mostly a quick blurb of the contestants solo and then each contestant talking with the judges and getting “yes” or “no” result whether they made the top 24.

We at AAN invited Jojo, Jenna, Andrew, and Gabrielle to assist on the reviews and to score on a scale of 1 to 10, 10 being the high and Gabrielle used “*”’s for good and “x” for not so good.

Here are the contestants in order of performance – Round Four Beatles Theme:

This ended round four and the group was cut from 61 to 40 contestants

Tomorrow night will be the final cut down to the Top 24 of season ten.  One of the contestants, Chris Medina, was cut tonight and he was one of our favorites.  We send our best to Chris and hope that he will continue to follow his dream.

Picked tonight for the Top 24 so far are Naima Adedapo, Clint Jun Gamboa, Haley Reinhart, Paul McDonald, and Ashton Jones.

We have nothing else to report except to thank Jojo, Jenna, Andrew, and Gabrielle for their assistance tonight and see you tomorrow.  We will have pictures of the final twenty four at the end of the show.

Jojo’s pick for top making the top 10 are James Durbin, Haley Reinhart, and Paul Mc Donald.

See y’all tomorrow night.
