American Idol's Top 24 set

Tonight, Randy, Paula and Simon had finally made their decision on the top 24. I don't know if it's me but it was a bit more slightly irritating seeing practically every single girl cry instead of being strong. But, it's definitely understandable. Many of the contestants journey in life will be altered.

Young favorite David Archuleta made the cut. With much debate about his age, the judges were going back and forth with David until they finally said yes. The other young male contestant Danny Noriega also made it.

Ramiele Malubay, the lone Asian/Pac Islander was so worried about going up on the elevator. The judges originally loved her big voice coming from her small body. As she sat in that chair of anxiety waiting for the judges to say yes or no, she was feeling cold and nervous. Without hesitation, Paula gave her the good news that she made it.

Ramiele Malubay's first audition.

For Syesha Mercado, it read in her name sYESha was in. Robbie Carrico long haired locks will be staying with him as he moved to the top 24.

For those that didn't, many exited graciously such as Lorena Pinot and Natasha Block. Unfortunately, for Josiah Leming, his first audition went to his head that his second edition cost him a spot on the top 24 thinking he'd coast to one of those spots. It was one of those moments that wanted make you cry. But sometimes people need to be humbled by this type of experience.

Life goes on and dreams will still go on for those who haven't made it but dreams for the top 24 will lead them closer to being an "American Idol."

The full list of the top 24 are as follows:

Alexandrea Lushington, Robbie Carrico, Jason Castro, Danny Noriega, Brooke White, Amanda Overmyer, Michael Johns, David Cook, Luke Menard and Carly Smithson, Chikezie Eze, Colton Berry, Asia'H Epperson, Kady Malloy, Joanne Borgella, Ramiele Malubay, David Hernandez, Amy Davis, Alaina Whitaker, Syesha Mercado, Jason Yeager, David Archuleta, Garrett Haley and Kristy Lee Cook.
