"American Idol" is about to reveal its top 12 finalists -- it doesn't take a genius to predict it'll be: Lee Dewyze, Alex Lambert, Michael Lynche, Aaron Kelly, Andrew Garcia, Casey James, Siobhan Magnus, Lilly Scott, Katie Stevens, Lacey Brown, Crystal Bowersox and Didi Benami.

Which would mean goodbye to Tim Urban, Todrick Hall, Paige Miles and Katelyn Epperly. Although Ryan tells us at the top, "we could be in for a surprise or two." Or not.

They do "Haven't Met You Yet" for the group sing. It's corny, but enjoyable. Choreography is definitely miles ahead of where it was in past seasons.
