American Idol 2019 Hollywood Preview: So Much Crying…and an Ambulance (VIDEO)

American Idol kicks off Hollywood week on Sunday, and the press release for the episode promises the drama we’ve come to expect from the round.  For five days, contestants’ limits are tested. Some are able to withstand the pressure, but others crumble. Check out the official press announcement from ABC. 

Amid solo and group rounds, there will be crying. Lots of crying. And somebody gets carted off to the hospital. If there isn’t an ambulance, it isn’t American Idol Hollywood Week! 

American Idol heads to the heart of Los Angeles for its renowned Hollywood Week rounds, as the search for America’s next superstar continues on The ABC Television Network, SUNDAY, MARCH 24 (8:00–10:01 p.m. EDT), streaming and on demand. In Sunday night’s episode, tensions are high as this year’s crop of hopefuls battles it out in solo and group round performances from the famous stage of The Orpheum Theatre. Helping to guide them through the rigorous week is American Idol in-house mentor Bobby Bones. Don’t miss phenomenal performances from returning fan favorites, an emergency trip to the hospital in an ambulance and a special moment when one lucky contestant receives a heartfelt gift from Luke Bryan.

Helping to determine who America will ultimately vote to become the next singing sensation are music industry legends and all-star judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Ryan Seacrest hosts the beloved series, and famed multimedia personality Bobby Bones acts as in-house mentor.
