tim urban top 12 'American Idol's' Tim Urban on Top 12: 'It's such a blur, it's such a rush'“American Idol” finalist Tim Urban is excited to be part of the Top 12. Probably because at first it looked like judge Simon Cowell thought asking Tim back might have been a mistake.

Tim is just happy to be here, though. He tells Zap2it that making the Top 12 is “very overwhelming, but such a good feeling.”

The final four eliminations came as a bit of a surprise to fans of the show, but did they surprise Tim? “The Top 24 that came here was so talented. Everybody was so good. Every week you really have no idea who’s going home and who’s going to stay,” says Tim. “So yes, it was shocking because I’ve seen these people, I know they’re so good. It’s hard every week to see people go.”

We asked Tim what his “dream theme” would be now that the Top 12 is starting the theme weeks. Tim surprised us when he said, “Big band, swing. I love that style of music … It would be upbeat, I’d have a lot of fun with it.”

He’s also excited about the Rolling Stones for next week because they’re “an epic band.”

Look for more interviews with the “American Idol” Top 12 over the next week while we gear up for the “Idol” finals to start! Siobhan Magnus is next.
