On this Sunday edition of “American Idol” notes, we are focusing entire on the current season of contestants, and what they are each saying about what is currently on their mind as they get set for this coming week’s Billy Joel theme. For those who are especially curious as to the chronology of everything, the group is currently out working on their Ford music video. (Cue product placement!)
All of the quotes mentioned below are from the contestants’ respective Twitter accounts.
Jessica Sanchez – While Jessica did not necessarily have much to say necessarily about the upcoming week, she did post the rather fun photo to the left of her alongside Casey Abrams (who has already grown some of beard back since shaving it recently).
Heejun Han – For Heejun this week, he seems to be trying to get back to some of his roots — which apparently include having a good time and staying true to who he has been for just about all of his life: “Going back to who i really was…im not a star…im just heejun :)”
Skylar Laine – For Skylar, heading to the Ford music video set allowed for a moment of reflection: “Driving down the same road as we did on a big bus the first day of Hollywood Week. Its strange but AMAZING to think we have come this far!!” On a separate note, does anyone else think that Skylar’s fan name of “Skoutlaws” is the coolest of any of the season 11 contestants?
Joshua Ledet – We haven’t learned much about Joshua from his Twitter lately, except that he is apparently a major Jessie J fan.
Phillip Phillips – Finally, we’re closing this week with a rather nice story about Phillip courtesy of TMZ. His family in Georgia is too poor to make the flights out to see his perform every week, but the town of Leesburg, Georgia has banded together to raise money for the Phillips clan by giving donations and even holding fundraisers. For this reason alone, we really want to see Phillip have a family visit if at all possible.
Who are you pulling for at the moment from the top 10?
