The "American Idol" Top 13 likes each other. Like, a lot. Zap2it talked with the finalists backstage after their first performance show, and every single one of them at some point or another mentioned how much they love each other and love listening to each other sing. Instead of sitting backstage prepping for their performances all night, the remaining singers all sit on comfy couches in an onstage lounge where they watch their competitors sing in front of the judges. While some might find that intimidating, literally all of them said how much they enjoyed it while speaking with Zap2it and a small group of reporters backstage after the show. Want proof?
