The full list of “American Idol” contestants ready to compete for your votes in Hollywood may have arrived.

A list of 36 contestants was posted on Friday on “Idol” fan site VoteForTheWorst.com and corroborated by JoesPlace, a blogger and message board contributor who has leaked similar, and quite accurate, information in past seasons.
