They look very different and they hail from opposite ends of the country.
We wish each of these singers the best of luck, and we’d also like to train them for the competition to come. Starting Tuesday night, when the top dozen men perform, Loewenstern and Langone will be enemies.
So let’s match them up now: which of these hopefuls do you see advancing the farthest on American Idol?
