Could this be the ‘American Idol’ final 36?

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.

Contestants will be competing for a spot in the top 36 in front of judges Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson and Kara DioGuardi in the coming weeks, with the final announcement to be made in the Feb. 11 episode. In the following weeks, viewers will have the chance to start voting for their favorites as the show goes live.
