*MTV.com is reporting that the top 50 "American Idol" finalists who made it to Hollywood this season have been leaked online at the Web site Idolforums.com, and one of the contestants failing to make the cut is the brother of 2004 champ, Fantasia Barrino.
"It appears that the list may be legit, based on information contained within the MySpace pages of the supposed 'Idol' contenders," says MTV.com.
The spoiler information was posted at IdolForums by someone named "JoesPlace," who started compiling the list back in late October and found the contestants "through media and word of mouth." He asks that "if you know any of these contestants or can add any info, just [message] me. You will remain completely anonymous. Nothing will be posted that you don't want. I would appreciate any hints, spoilers, news or info. No info is too small. ... Anything is helpful."
The list contains various subsets: Those who've gone before the judges, those who've made it through Hollywood Week and those who've been cut - including, apparently, Fantasia Barrino's brother, 24-year-old Ricco.
The list also includes the names of the songs some contestants performed during various portions of the competition.
