DialIdol.com's prediction, though, seemed to have failed because their top-ranking female contestant didn't even make the cut. Ta-tynisa Wilson was sent packing and wasn't even asked to stay for the wildcards.
The top favorite among the girls was Pia Toscano who received the judges' first standing ovation this season with her rendition of I'll Stand By You. While among the boys, the 16-year-old country singer Scotty McCreery continues to become a favorite. He's also DialIdol's top-ranking male contestant and I'm glad they're right this time. Scotty's voice is so country and his smile is so endearing.
It's just sad that the other Pinoy contestant, Clint Jun Gamboa, didn't make it. It's just okay, though, because being included in the Top 24 is definitely a big accomplishment for the karaoke singer.
My personal favorite among the boys, Paul McDonald, also got through. The old school rocker has a very distinct voice and his moves on stage is sexy.
