american idol top 10 curtis burnell paul lazaro devin fox 'American Idol' interviews: Meet the Top 5 guys (video)

After all of the auditions, Hollywood week and Las Vegas, we have finally made it to the top 10 contestants on “American Idol” Season 12. But who are these contestants? Other than young men and women with incredible singing voices, we don’t know much about them.

In order to change that, we have video interviews with each of the top 5 guys — Burnell Taylor, Curtis Finch, Jr., Devin Velez, Lazaro Arbos and Paul Jolley.

This first interview is with Burnell Taylor. In addition to his singing, Burnell talked about his rather impressive weight loss (it’s all about exercise) since his original audition.

Curtis Finch, Jr. is the subject of the next interview. For context, Curtis had already spent an entire evening giving interviews before this one. We’re talking about two hours of talking. That’s how energetic this fellow is.

Devin Velez took the chance to talk about his super-cute mother in addition to his singing.

Although his stutter did make the interview a little difficult for him, you’ve got to be impressed with how game Lazaro Arbos was to talk about everything after his performance.

Finally, Paul Jolley (amusingly, the first singer introduced into the Top 10) has an interview. The guy was rather cute in it.

Do you have a favorite among the “Idol” top 5 guys? Did the interviews change your mind?

“American Idol” airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8pm on FOX.
