JoesPlaceBlog is gathering AI 10 Hollywood group round intel from her sources.
Here’s an interesting tidbit:
In the past, there was always an advantage to the contestants that sang on Day one in Hollywood. As they could form their group and have 2 days to rehearse. This time the rules stated that each group must contain at least one contestant from day two. LOTS of conflict came from this. A certain male top 40 contestant denied a few of the day two contestants into his group, as they wouldn’t mesh well together.
Nigel stated to the contestants that these were the best group rounds that Idol had seen. Lots of groups blew the judges away.
Songs included Maroon 5 song, a Bruno Mars song and, Forget You by Cee Lo Brown and Superwoman
ETA: Paul McDonald just tweeted: “Running around town like crazy getting ready to travel…good weekend and warm weather coming soon!”
PLUS JoesPlace reports that Rachel Zevita is STILL in the Top 40 (I’ll be updating my list this weekend)
After the jump, a list of rumored groups:
- Jordan Dorsey, Ericka Schiff, Lauren Turner and Robbie Rosen were in a group (sang Forget You by Cee Lo Green)
