Will there be another half Pinoy on American Idol?

Starting tonight see American Idol Season 12’s Top 40 contestants perform on the stage of Cirque du Soleil’s Beatles LOVE Theatre at The Mirage, in Las Vegas.

The Vegas move is a new twist in the competition. The Top 40 once again will be split by gender. On Thursday, February 21 and continuing Friday, February 22, Thursday, February 28 and Friday, March 1 on ETC, 10 semifinalists will perform each night – girls on Wednesdays and guys on Thursdays. Each episode, the judges will be faced with the tough decision of choosing which five will stay and which five will be sent home. At the end of the first stage of the semifinals, only 20 contestants will remain.

Amongst the Top 40 finalists are three Filipino-Americans namely Adriana Latonio, Bridget Jett Hermano and Bryant Tadeo.
