New Season 13 of Fox's popular reality-singing competition series, American Idol, has officially ended its notoriously challenging Hollywood Week rounds and the list of the show's Top 30 contestants has recently been released online. Harry Connick Jr., who is considered to be the meanest panelist of all, also noted that there are big changes on the program.

The American Idol will now have forty contenders, instead of thirty like in previous years, who will be the lucky ones to receive the golden ticket to Los Angeles. There will be 15 male and 15 female contestants, who will go head-to-head, performing for the highly anticipated shows in the next five months beginning in year 2014.

Out of the top thirty contenders who are trying to be the next American Idol, 13 contestants have already auditioned from the previous seasons, mostly from season 11 and 12. Also, there will be several familiar faces on the upcoming show, as they had auditioned for other reality-singing competition series, including NBC's The Voice, as well as Fox's The X Factor USA.
