REALITY CHECK

March 03, 2007|By SARAH KICKLER KELBER

When the Top 24 were finally revealed on American Idol a couple of weeks ago, there seemed to be an abundance of contestants making the cut whom we'd never seen before. Now I know why: They're boring! We got stuck with Alaina Alexander (now mercifully gone), Haley Scarnato (still around) and Leslie Hunt (also cut this week). It seems as if we saw some more dynamic performers during auditions, so when they threw these people we'd never seen before into the semifinals, the assumption was that they were amazingly good. But that doesn't seem to be the case at all.
