The intrepid American Idol spoiler site, JoesPlace has the deets on American Idol 10 Hollywood week! Reportedly, it begins on December 6 and runs 11 days til December 17.
All of the Hollywood bound Hopefuls will be boarding planes all over the country on Monday, December 6th, bound for LAX, and Hollywood. The Contestants will be staying at the Pasadena Sheraton. (Anyone in LA, how about visiting that hotel with your camera??). I believe that the competition will take place at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium (300 East Green Street in Pasadena).
December 7th and 8th the contestants will be split into 2 groups. Half performing on the 7th and half on the 8th. The first cut will be on December 7th. No instruments during the first performance, but they can be used after that.
Joe speculates that the first part of the round will be like the typical Hollywood week, with the judges winnowing down the field of contestants to about 50 or so.
After that, as Vote For The Worst recently reported, the Top 50 or so will be presented to viewers in video packages and interviews for online voting, sponsored by AT&T.
Nigel Lythgoe has told the press that the traditional Top 24/36 semi-final rounds will be eliminated.
It’s beginning peeps! Are you excited?
