American Idol results: Alexis Grace, Danny Gokey, Michael Sarver advance

The first three singers entered "American Idol's" Top 12 Wednesday night: Alexis Grace, Danny Gokey and Michael Sarver.

Alexis and Danny seemed like shoe-ins after Tuesday's performances. Alexis out-sang her female counterparts easily, boasting soulful pipes and an edgy attitude. Danny, meanwhile, has been a producer and viewer favorite from the beginning -- boasting a good voice and compelling back story.

If the results show had a surprise, it was Michael Sarver, who advanced to the Top 12 amid Anoop Desai's heavy fan base and Ricky Braddy's breakout vocal performance. Check out Sonya's Idol blog for all the details.
