Yup, it's our favorite photo gallery of the year -- the annual party for the "American Idol" top 12 finalists, this year with stars from "Glee.'"

Click here for 43 photos of Siobhan Magnus, Aaron Kelly, Casey James, Katie Stevens, Lee Dewyze, Didi Benami, Michael Lynche, Crystal Bowersox, Paige Miles, Tim Urban, Lacey Brown and Andrew Garcia.

And . . . Cory Monteith and Mark Salling of "Glee!" Michaela Conlin and John Francis Daley from "Bones" were there, too. Justin Guarini and Matt Giraud showed, as did some Fox executives doing that thing where they try to look casual while squeezing into photos of the actual celebs.

I also always like looking at the photos to see who seems to be friends with who; there's one of Casey James side-hugging Andrew Garcia, another one of Andrew with Lee Dewyze.

In a totally random moment, Simon Cowell's ex-girlfriend Terri Seymour was there, too. They must still be friends. But wonder what Simon's current squeeze Mezhgan Hussainy thought of that.

Mezhgan, by the way, seems fascinating. Check this MSNBC item profiling "Idol's" makeup artist and her unique background.
