American Idol 12 Hollywood Week Spoilers – Manufactured Groups and More!

Here’s a fresh-from-the-Hollywood rounds report, straight from Northridge, CA!

As a mentioned on Monday, the BOYS arrived first. The girls will begin their rounds on Thursday. Yesterday, the guys sang solo a cappella rounds. Approximately 60 contestants made it through to the group rounds.

And get this…the producers put together the groups! The contestants had NO say in the matter. So, basically, you got what you got. Hm. The male group rounds take place today.

For those who advance, tomorrow brings a solo with the band. The guys choose from a list of 72 songs.

Stay tuned for updates. For a list of Hollywood hopefuls, check out The Idol Pad

UPDATE: There are 14 groups of boys. Popular songs include: “What Makes You Beautiful”, “Some Kind of Wonderful”, Somebody to Love” and “Payphone.”

Oh. And watch for contestant Gabe Brown. He’s rooming with Matheus Fernandes from The Glee Project, Season 1. (He was the little guy). That is all.
