The final 11 American Idol contestants gathered in a Hollywood studio last week for our big Entertainment Weekly photo shoot (on stands soon!), so we took a few minutes to ask them each about how things are going in the competition. Has Casey recovered from the shock of almost being sent home? What did Scotty sound like before puberty? And how does Pia feel about instigating a disagreement between superstar spouses Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony? Those answers and more — including the ’80s metal band James Durbin would love to front for a night — will be revealed in the video player after the jump. Then check back later this week for more from the Idols, and in case you missed it, you can see snippets of our interviews with Thia (where she says whom she’ll be rooting for after getting voted off) and Naima (who has plans to become a superhero).
