So, you might’ve heard two weeks ago that only one of the two aforementioned boys would make the top 10 this season. Words straight from Nigel himself! But, after last night, you know that both Billy Bell (S7) and Alex Wong (S7) made the (now) top 11.
Here’s some interesting insight on the situation…
Last week, [Korbi] met up with the aforementioned Top 11 the day after they flew into L.A. and got some one-on-one time with Billy, who said that someone posted [Korbi's] interview with Mr. Lythgoe on his facebook page and he freaked out, thinking that Alex had been cut.
He immediately called Alex up to ask if he’d made the show and, upon hearing that he did, they were both just confused.
Looks like neither of the boys knew about their supposed situation. Here’s a video of Zap2It Korbi’s interview with Billy Bell, from the LA photoshoot.
So, do you feel tricked by Nigel? Or do you think he was merely cautious with his words? After all, as it seems by the show last night, Billy was the sixth boy, and indeed wasn’t in the top 10, thus proving that Nigel wasn’t lying.
What do you think about both Alex and Billy making the top 11? Thoughts on the format of the top 11 reveal last night? Did you like the whole judges-going-to-their-houses stint?
