Casey James and Michael Lynche

Who? Season Nine's third- and fourth-place finishers: James is a little bit country; Lynche is a little bit rock ’n’ soul.

Peak James went on to open for Sugarland on the March leg of the band’s 2011 tour; Lynche laid low after finishing the Idol national tour.

Low: A smooth ride for James so far but the opposite for Lynche, who was briefly disqualified from Idol after his dad revealed to a newspaper that his son made it into the final 24.

Currently: James signed with Sony Music Nashville and has a debut album due out this year. Lynche is still missing in action.
