Pair from bay area voted finalists on 'American Idol'

For a moment, it seemed the Tampa Bay area might see just one of its two remaining American Idol contestants make the show's roster of Top 10 finalists Thursday, as viewers chose Tampa resident Shannon Magrane to move forward and rejected Valrico's Jeremy Rosado. But judge Jennifer Lopez intervened, adding Rosado using her "wild card" option after he performed an emotional version of Carrie Underwood's ballad I Know You Won't. Overall, 13 singers moved forward Thursday for live performance shows starting next week. — Eric Deggans, Times TV/media critic
