American Idol's judges narrowed down this season's contestants once again last night, rounding out the show's top 12 with a 23-year-old piano player from Scottsdale, AZ (Scott MacIntyre), a 20-year-old student from Carolina, Puerto Rico (Jorge Nunez), and a 23-year-old mother of three from Memphis, TN (Lil Rounds).
"You're born to sing," Kara DioGuardi said to Nunez after he nailed Elton John's "Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me." "What you have comes from the heart."
A wild card group of semifinalists was also announced on Wednesday. It includes Von Smith, Jasmine Murray, Ricky Braddy, Megan Corkrey, Tatiana Del Toro, Matt Giraud, Jesse Langseth and Anoop Desai. They'll get another chance to compete in the top 12 tonight.
