Idol Season 8 Revealed Top 13 finalists.

Yes, the complete list of finalists that were picked to move on to the next round of American Idol season 2 was finally revealed. But unlike the past seasons where they picked the top 12, the judges announced 13 finalists. And it was the 22-year-old college student from Chapel Hill, NC, Anoop Desai who got the lucky 13th spot after the announcement of the three remaining finalists at the end of the wild card round.

"We decided — recently — we're going to make this a top 13," judge Simon Cowell revealed.

The three other finalists who secured their spots after the wild card round were Jasmine Murray, the 16-year-old high school student from Starkville, Miss.; Megan Corkrey, the 22-year-old single mother from Sandy, Utah; and Matt Giraud, the soulful 23-year-old piano player from Kalamazoo, Mich.

Desai, Murray, Corkrey and Giraud will join previously selected finalists Kris Allen, Danny Gokey, Alexis Grace, Allison Iraheta, Adam Lambert, Scott MacIntyre, Jorge Nunez, Lil Rounds and Michael Sarver. The Top 13 will start competing next Tuesday with one finalist sent packing every Wednesday.
