'American Idol': Who would the contestants root for if they were eliminated?

Posted on

Of course, the ultimate dream of every American Idol contestant is to win. But only one person per year gets that privilege; everyone else (except perhaps the runner-up) must be satisfied to watch the competition ultimately unfold without them. So who would the Season 10 crop of contestants root for if they themselves were eliminated? We asked the Top 11 that very question at the EW photo shoot featured in Wednesday’s performance show. You can check out EW’s Facebook page and “like” us (if you haven’t already) for access to exclusive video with their answers, but to whet your appetite, here’s a quick teaser: The two contestants eliminated this week, Thia Megia and Naima Adedapo, will be rooting for Casey Abrams, Lauren Alaina, and Jacob Lusk, but not necessarily in that order. You’ll have to head over to EW’s Facebook page to find out who is specifically rooting for whom. Ooo, mystery!
