Three more singers joined the "American Idol" Top 12: Allison Iraheta, Adam Lambert and Kris Allen.
After Wednesday's performance show, Iraheta and Lambert seemed like shoe-ins for the Top 12 - even though some fans criticized Lambert for oversinging.
Allen's spot in the Top 12 was somewhat a surprise, as he received little air time prior to semifinals. But his controlled, vocally sound take on Michael Jackson's "Man in the Mirror" gave him an edge on a night when the majority of singers chose songs too big or too small for their talent levels.
Now, the Top 12 includes six singers: Alexis Grace, Danny Gokey, Michael Sarver, Allison Iraheta, Adam Lambert and Kris Allen.
