American Idol 12 Hollywood Pt 3 Roundup – Poll Results and More

AMERICAN IDOL: Drama and desperation escalate behind the scenes as the pressure mounts during the intense “Hollywood Rounds” which kick off with the guys, competing on Wednesday, Feb. 6 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Feb. 7 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT). The girls get their chance to win over the judges beginning Wednesday, Feb. 13 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) ©2013 Fox Broadcasting Co. CR: Michael Becker / FOX.

So what did you think? Is this the best group of girls EVAH as we’ve been constantly reminded by anyone and everyone assocated with the show? Actually, in fairness, I think it’s too early to get all up in TPTB’s grill for their constant pimping of the girls. Hollywood is more about the drama than the singing. We won’t get fully acquainted with the contestants’ voices until the semi-finals begin next week. I’ll reserved my judgement until then.

I will say, however, that based solely on the Hollywood rounds, I don’t find the girls to be more talented than the boys. But like I said–that could change once the sangin’ finally starts.

The poll results were interesting. The #1 group, The Swaggettes, featuring Melinda Ademi, Kamaria Ousley, Candice Glover, Denise Jackson are deserving of the position and their name.  Confidence, charm and talent–swaggerific indeed!  They took 49.16% of the vote–a decisive win!

But the second place finishers have left me scratching my head. The Misfits, featuring Kez Ban, Breanna Steer, Angela Miller and Janelle Arthur had 32.94% of the vote. Also pretty damn decisive . The rest of the bunch trailed far behind. as you can see here. If we’re determining rank based on how memorable these groups were, than I could possibly see the 2nd place ranking (actually, I’d rank the 3rd place Pooh Snaps higher, just based on the entertainment factor alone). Other than  Janell Arthur’s impressive belting, that performance was full of terrible singing.

Hm. Perhaps the voting was based on fan favorites. I know Kez, Angela and Janelle have already amassed sturdy fan bases.  I’d so both groups are littered with girls who have the potential to go far–Jenell, Angela, Candice and Melinda. Looking at it from the fan fav angle, it also makes sense.
