It has been all but scientifically proven that I just cannot run a redux that won't die. So I have decided to try my hand at an interactive!

24 contestants are competing to earn the chance to live in the spotlight. For the first 3 weeks, 2 semifinalists from each gender will be eliminated each week until there is a top 12. From then on, the lowest vote getter will be eliminated every week. I've addd a host, judges and a sing-off, but they're just for fun and to build ~story lines~ They really don't serve a purpose. haha.gif

For 23, it will be lights out, but in the end, 1 will be In The Spotlight!

THE GIRLS



IPB Image
Bailey Bennet
Age: 21
From: Hope, Arkansas
Genres: Country/Pop
Influences: Julianne Hough/Kellie Pickler/Miranda Lambert

Her journey: Bailey managed to impress the judges with her initial audition in New Orleans. However, this small town girl seemed to get lost in the Hollywood rounds. After struggling through the first two rounds, her final performance convinced the judges she deserves a spot in the top 24. The judges wonder if she can handle the pressure of the live shows, will she overcome or wind up flat on the floor?


IPB Image
Sharone Brown
Age: 26
From: Houston, Texas
Genres: RnB, Soul
Influences: Mary J Blige/Chaka Khan/Beverly Knight

Her journey: Sharone's quiet confidence has been key in getting her into the semifinals. She earned the judge's praise with her audition, finding her first fan in Janet. She sailed through the Hollywood rounds, handling each round with poise. The judges admired her for showing no signs of nerves. The only concern the judges have is if she will be able to connect with a younger audience. Will she be able to bridge the generation gap or will her time in the spotlight fade early?

IPB Image
Alexa Chism
Age: 21
From: Reno, Nevada
Genres: Rock, Pop-Rock
Influences: Heart/Pink/Fergie

Her journey: Alexa has been a standout since her very first audition. Her unique style led to Gwen naming her one of her favorites before Hollywood. There seemed to be no stopping her as she impressed with all of her song choices during Hollywood. However, Pharrell pointed out that she was a little too cocky. The other judges looked passed it and gave her a spot in the semifinals. Will she be able to ground herself or will the voters do it for her?

IPB Image
Page Davis
Age: 22
From: Providence, Rhode Island
Genres: Acoustic, Singer-Songwriter
Influences: Colbie Caillat/Ingrid Michaelson/Vanessa Carlton

Her journey: Tired of playing coffee shops all over Rhode Island, Page came to her audition ready for the big time. She managed to do well throughout Hollywood, but she had trouble standing out amongst the dozens of other talented girls. In the end, the judges had to reward her performances with a spot in the semis. Will she finally stand out or will the voters send her back to the coffee shops?

IPB Image
Naomi Edwards
Age: 20
From: Orlando, Florida
Genres: Pop, Dance
Influences: Selena Gomez/Cheryl Cole/Britney Spears

Her journey: Naomi's infectious personality won the judges over before she even opened her mouth to sing at her audition. Janet admired her ability to pick creative songs throughout her time in Hollywood. Ryan said he was unsure if she would be able to handle the challenging themes in the finals. Will she stay on her hot streak or will her luck run out?

IPB Image
Mollie Gibson
Age: 22
From: Chattanooga, Tennessee
Genres: Country, Adult Contemporary
Influences: Faith Hill/Shania Twain/Carrie Underwood

Her journey: Mollie proved she was more than a pretty face with her impressive audition. In Hollywood she gained an unlikely fan in Pharrell. That was until her group gave what was referred to as the worst group performance of the week. Mollie lost a bit of her confidence, but managed to get through on merit. Will she finally regain her confidence on the live shows or will she fade into obscurity?

IPB Image
Jillian Hayes
Age: 25
From: Omaha, Nebraska
Genres: Broadway, Pop, Adult Contemporary
Influences: Lea Michele/Laura Bell Bundy/Diana DeGarmo

Her journey: This Broadway beauty came in to her audition ready to leave her midwest days behind her. Pharrell claimed she had one of the best voices he had heard in a long time. She sailed through the Hollywood rounds, managing to surprise the judges with some of her song choices. The judges just wonder how a broadway singer will fit into today's market. Can she show that she belongs or will the voters send her back to the local theatre?

IPB Image
Laken Hughes
Age: 17
From: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Genres: Pop, RnB
Influences: JoJo, Esmee Denters, Kelly Rowland

Her journey: Ryan has had dollar signs in his eyes ever since Laken's first audition. With her impressive voice and marketability it's no wonder she was a unanimous yes to go into Hollywood. Laken continued to meet the judge's expectations , outshining most auditionees she shared the stage with. Will she impress the voters or will the judges end up being her only fans?

IPB Image
Tiara Jordan
Age: 20
From: Los Angeles, California
Genres: RnB, Dance, Pop, Rap
Influences: Ciara/Keri Hilson/Janet Jackson

Her journey: Tiara stomped into the audition room with the confidence of a season professional. Her vocals alone left the judges underwhelmed, but they believe she has the full package. Janet said she reminded her of herself with "half the dance moves, but twice the confidence." She turned the Hollywood stage into a dance floor each time she sang, making up for what she lacks in vocal power. The judges are unsure of her vocal ability, but believe she is what's hot in the industry right now. Will the voters be impressed by her performances or see through her sassy persona.

IPB Image
Mallory Reed
Age: 18
From: Portland, Oregon
Genres: Acoustic, Pop, Soul
Influences: Sara Bareilles/KT Tunstall/Christina Perri

Her journey: This shy high school senior has surprised the judges at every stage. She showed promise in her first audition, getting three yes's from the judges, only Pharrell was unsure of her personality. However, she made a surprising change on the Hollywood stage, she seemed to turn into a different, more confident person on the stage. She managed to get all of the judges on her side, easily getting a spot in the top 24. Can she continue to impress or was her Hollywood persona a one time thing?

IPB Image
Tamera Ryan
Age: 19
From: Chicago, Illinois
Genres: RnB, Pop, Dance
Influences: Whitney Houston/Beyonce/Jamelia

Her journey: The judges are still talking about Tamera's first audition. She bust into the room screaming and jumping, then shocked the judges when her voice was actually good. She carried that same spark all throughout Hollywood, earning praise from all judges, especially Pharrell. While the judges think she has the makings of a star, she isn't the type of singer that does well on Idol nowadays, will her journey end early or will she break the trend?

IPB Image
Lacey West
Age: 22
From: Virginia Beach, Virginia
Genres: RnB/Jazz/Soul/Pop-Rock
Influences: Joss Stone/Christina Aguilera/Naya Rivera

Her journey: This self proclaimed "beach bum" came to the Atlanta auditions by herself in an attempt to make her lifelong dreams come true. Her lack or training showed, but the judge's believed that she had promise and sent her through to Hollywood. She managed to get better and better until the judges had no choice but to send her through to the semifinals. Will her lack of training cause her to sink or swim?

THE BOYS



IPB Image
Brett Adams
Age: 23
From: Dallas, Texas
Genres: Soft Rock, Acoustic, Singer-Songwriter
Influences: Adam Levine/Jason Mraz/John Mayer

His journey: Brett came to his New Orleans audition with only a guitar in hand. Without many supporters he had more riding on his audition than most. Luckily the judges fell in love with him and he moved on to Hollywood against his parents' wishes. Brett took Hollywood week by storm with his acoustic covers and charming personality. His only critic was Gwen, who wonders if there's a place for him in the competitive acoustic rock field. Will Brett make the most of his opportunity or will he have to return home to the family business?

IPB Image
Roman Ashcroft
Age: 25
From: Atlanta, Georgia
Genres: Soul, RnB, Pop
Influences: Donny Hathaway/Robin Thicke/Elliott Yamin

His journey: Roman had the ladies swooning at his audition with his unexpectedly soulful voice. Janet called him a breath of fresh air, and with comments like these it's no surprise he made the semis, but his journey wasn't the smoothest. He seemed poised for an easy ride until a case of the nerves caused him to forget the words to his final performance song. Luckily his previous performances were good enough to propel him into the top 24. Will he crack under the pressure again or is he destined to see his name in lights?

IPB Image
D'Andre Bell
Age: 22
From: Detriot, Michigan
Genres: RnB, Hip-Hop
Influences: Usher/Jason DeRulo/Taio Cruz

His journey: D'Andre's first audition had Pharrell ready to sign him on the spot and the girls in awe. All of the judges expected great things from him, but unfortunately D'Andrea did not come to Hollywood prepared. His song choices were uninspiring, but none of the judges could deny his talent and put him into the top 24. Will he find the spark or will it be lights out on D'Andre's chance?

IPB Image
Mason Bond
Age: 23
From: Seattle, Washington
Genres: Pop-Rock, Alternative, Rock
Influences: Cobra Starship/Patrick Stump/Tyson Ritter

His journey: From the moment Mason walked into the audition room, the judges recognized that Mason was something different. Ryan loved that he fit into what was popular today, but wasn't like someone they had seen audition yet. After a few less than stellar performances in Hollywood, Gwen questioned how much Mason truly wanted to win, but he assured them he was "in it to win it." Will Mason fizzle out or become the next rock sensation?

IPB Image
Devon Ford
Age: 21
From: Newark, New Jersey
Genres: RnB, Soul, Jazz
Influences: John Legend/Stevie Wonder/Brian McKnight

His journey: Perhaps the biggest surprise of the auditions was Devon's. None of the judges expected a throwback soul sound from this 21 year old Jersey native. With a unanimous yes, Devon set out to conquer Hollywood, and that's exactly what he did. He managed to tear the house down nearly every time he set foot on the stage. By the end of the Hollywood he seemed to have an heir of cockiness to him which made the judges question what would happen to him in the competition. Can he remain humble in the finals or will he turn the audience off with his attitude?

IPB Image
Dylan Graham
Age: 22
From: St. Louis, Missouri
Genres: Adult Contemporary, Soft Rock, Theatre
Influences: George Michael/Matthew Morrison/Elton John

His journey: Dylan initially impressed the judges with his big voice and old soul, garnering four yes votes. Dylan seemed to be on the right track until the groups round. He found it difficult to mesh with the other contestants on their song. The judges said they believe he has talent but questioned whether or not he fit into the competition. A stellar final performance convinced them to let him into the competition. Will he prove the judges right or find his own fan base in the finals?

IPB Image
Cody Hart
Age: 17
From: Huntsville, Alabama
Genres: Pop, Acoustic Pop
Influences: One Direction/Jesse McCartney/Joe Jonas

His journey: Cody was an instant hit with the judges at his New Orleans audition. Gwen questioned how he didn't have a record deal already with young pop stars being so popular. Cody gained hundreds of new fans in Hollywood, making his fellow competitors fall in love with him. Pharrell questioned if his voice was strong enough to compete with the other guys, but the other judges had no concerns with letting him into the top 24. Can he compete with the older guys or will his lack of experience show on stage?

Travis Hendricks
Age: 24
From: New Orleans, Louisiana
Genres: Mainstream Rock
Influences: Ryan Tedder/The Fray/Brandon Flowers

His journey: Travis came into his audition cool, calm, and collected, which resonated well with the judges. Ryan said he had the chops to compete with his band on the charts. With a large group of guys singing rock in Hollywood, Travis found it difficult to stand out from the crowd. The judges couldn't deny his talent and allowed him into the top 24, claiming to give the fans the chance to pick their favorite "rocker." Will he find his place among the other guys or will he never have his moment in the spotlight?

IPB Image
Connor Lawson
Age: 16
From: New York City, New York
Genres: Pop, Adult Contemporary
Influences: David Archuleta/Sam Tsui/Joe McElderry

His journey: In a sea of over-confident and under-talented teens, Connor stood out as the one with the most talent, but least confidence. Janet insisted that he be put through to Hollywood so he could hopefully find himself and gain some confidence. Pharrell insisted he wasn't ready, but the other judges made his dream possible. Connor never quite reached his full potential in Hollywood, though his vast improvement and undeniable talent earned him a spot in the top 24. Can Connor finally shine or will his spotlight fade before it's even lit?

IPB Image
Micah Tomkins
Age: 20
From: Miami, Florida
Genres: Pop, Jazz Funk, Dance, RnB
Influences: Bruno Mars/Kevin McHale/Justin Timberlake

His journey: The uniquely talented Micah has wow'd the judges from the start. Pharrell said he was unlike anything he had ever seen and put him into Hollywood. He impressed the judges at every opportunity, though Gwen pointed out that he didn't get quite the applause that the other acts got. The judges know he has talent, but they wonder if he'll be able to connect with a conventional audience. Can he find his market or will he have to find a different route to the spotlight?

IPB Image
Chet Turner
Age: 19
From: Louisville, Kentucky
Genres: Country
Influences: Keith Urban/Rascal Flatts/Gary Allan

His journey: Country teen Chet Turner's journey was almost over before it began due to a lackluster audition. Janet and Ryan saw promise in the young man and opted to send him to Hollywood. He would eventually gain the approval of the other judges after a set of impressive performances. His final performance reminded the judges of his first audition, leading them to question his consistency. Can he go on a hot streak or is he about to be sent back to the farm?

IPB Image
Myles Wallace
Age: 22
From: Chicago, Illinois
Genres: Rock, Alternative
Influences: INXS/U2/Freddie Mercury

His journey: Myles had the judges in awe with his first audition. Ryan said he believed he has the perfect combination of vocals and rock-n-roll edge. Myles made his way through Hollywood making singing some of rock's biggest songs look easy. The judges only concern is that his niche seems to be older rock songs; will he show that he can fit into today's market or is a Queen cover band calling his name?
