American Idol Wild Card Picks save Ashthon Jones and Naima Adedapo

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Just as we started to think that the American Idol Top 10 had completely excluded black women, we were introduced to the “wild card picks”. With the introduction of the “wild card” came two black women who were voted into what then became the top 13!

It seems that the new line up of judges, Randy Jackson, Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler, also noticed this glaring omission because two of the three people that they voted back into the competition turned out to be black women.

No one could have been more shocked than Ashthon Jones who was the first black woman that the judges voted to put back into the competition. She was then followed by a highly emotional Naima Adedapo, also a black woman, who was also voted back into the competition. The third person to be added back into the competition was a much deserving young man, Stephano Langone.

With the top 13 now selected, American Idol’s season 10 is set to be a wild and exciting addition to Wednesday and Thursday night’s prime-time line-up.
