American Idol 2018 Hollywood Week Recap:

Marcio Donaldson, “Natural Woman.” I love this guy. We didn’t see much of the audition, but what we did see was fantastic. And I loved the brave song choice. Grade: A

Marcio Donaldson sings a twist on "Natural Woman" by Aretha Franklin for his Hollywood Week Solo Performance on American Idol 2018.

Gabby Barrett, “Ain’t No Way.” I think I was supposed to like this more than I did based on how the judges were acting, but I don’t enjoy her singing out of her nose at all. And there’s just something off-putting about her. Grade: B

Gabby Barrett sings "Ain't No Way" by Aretha Franklin for her Hollywood Week Solo Performance on American Idol 2018.

Effie Passero, “Alone.” Well American Idol is officially back because here’s the first “Alone” of the season. I loved Effie in her audition, but I didn’t love this performance. It was pretty sharp at times and of course the song choice was lazy. Grade: B

Effie Passero sings "Alone" by Heart for her Hollywood Week Solo Performance on American Idol 2018.

Cade Foehner, “Feel it Still.” I knew this would be the song everyone sang this season. I don’t like this version of it though. I think Cade has a very specific talent and is probably amazing to those who like that, but it’s just not my thing. Grade: B-

Amelia Hammer Harris: Channels Her Late Dad's SOUL In Strong Solo Performance

Update…

Featured on the panel are veteran R&B master, Lionel Richie, pop star Katy Perry and country singer Luke Bryan. Ryan Seacrest returns to host.

During American Idol 2018 Hollywood Week, the judges still hold all the power, so we’ll be seeing the contestants perform American Idol-approved songs in the dreaded dramatic group rounds and then songs of the contestants’ choices in the solo rounds. Those who make it through tonight head onto the showcase rounds next week.

So let’s head to the Dolby Theater in Los Angeles and join judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan as the Idol hopefuls sing for their lives during Hollywood Week!

On day one, performers sing one by one, after ten, they line up and singers are sent home.
Layla Spring – Last Kiss – She’s the teen country singer with the cute little sister Dyxie.  She’s hyped! Not ready to go back home to Kentucky. She sings that creepy Pearl Jam cover “Last Kiss” while accompanying herself on guitar.
Alyssa Ragu – Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler – She’s only 15, but possesses a voice beyond her years. Her song is dedicated to her dad. Kind of a weird song choice. But it’s an a cappella performance and absolutely beautiful. 

Layla Spring,16, from Kentucky is up first. Her audition was sweet and innocent, and everyone seemed to enjoy it. She is followed by 15-year-old Alyssa Raghu. Her version of “Wind Beneath My Wings” wasn’t even half as good as her initial audition.

Trevor McBane follows the two girls with a raspy and raw audition that left Katy in smiles. He is followed by country boy Caleb Lee Hutchinson. His version of “Don’t Close Your Eyes” by Keith Whitley was rich and emotional and pretty much perfect as far as country goes.

It’s time for the first results. Trevor, Alyssa, Layla and Caleb all advance. Six others already head home.

i don't mind group week, but if one or two people causes others to get sent home, that's not right. I hope they don't base everything on the group performances like they did in the past. in my eyes, that is a huge downfall in American Idol for being so negative on a group vs the specific individuals

Marley Mal
That last girl reminds me of Amber Riley with her power and tone, especially from her years on Glee.

Robertantonnyc
Michael was doing some strange things trying to get those high notes. Thaddeus killed it so good.  I wasn't feeling Shannon on this; a little shouty.  Of course Kourtney sang down the house. Chills at the end. Great harmonies.

TiniklingMaster 
American Idol pls notice me. K we need a better opening. I loved the oppening theme song and i loved the gyroscope. This one didnt even have any music. Can we have a longer, better one pls?? The intro now is good, but it just needs, ya know, everything i noted. At least the song. Btw the intro was one of the reasons i love american idol. Lol sorry i talk too much. I just loved the intro.

Viewers reacted:

Monica Wilson Am I nuts? I could have sworn when I used to watch this show a long long time ago, people would be disqualified if they didn’t know the lyrics. Now she gets compliments for singing “I don’t know the lyrics.” …what the …

Kristine Van Handel She did the right thing by adlibbing when she forgot the words. Even famous singers forget the words to their own songs that they have been performing for YEARS. As they say the show must go on.

Cari Schmitz This was nerve wrecking to watch at the end. I am so glade Marcio and Maddie got through!!! I love Marcio and Maddie!

Brooke Davis If they were taking it seriously, then they would have practiced the words until they were blue in the face. This is unacceptable

Glenda Fitts Ballard Previously you would get cut for forgetting words. They are getting through but as it gets further in the competition, you're not going to be able to do that

Andria Sue Grosvenor I think that she sung the best out of the group, so who cares if she didn't remember. She was the star believe that

Catie Turner, Alyssa Raghu, Victoria McQueen and Kyah Robinson form a group called Taco! and perform "La La La" Naughty Boy & Sam Smith during Hollywood Week on American Idol 2018.

Catie Turner To people calling me annoying: i know ive lived with myself for years! LOL

Cindy Nemeth Longacre I feel like she might have Aspergers. My son has it and she reminds me of him in many ways. Yes they can be annoying but it’s just their trouble with social cues.

Sami Hendricks To all the people saying that Zach shouldve gone on. No. Hes got an amazing voice, for sure. But these judges have to pick what is going to sell, whats going to be an original, inspiring new artist, and im sorry but hes not that at all. A lot of people dont even listen to Buble anymore. Its a very small group he appeals to in the public eye and they have to recognize that first and foremost. Whereas Catie is like the Jennifer Lawrence of singing. Shes odd, overly excited, but shes also a powerhouse. Shes already picked two completely different songs and nailed them

Vicky Lewis Yeah, Zach knocked me over with his voice. Clearly these judges are deaf. I'm turning off the show. Zach will be on Broadway someday with his talent. Go Zach

Shouana Lee Mozzoni While some people here are saying she’s a bit much, as if she is putting up an act…. um do you guys know her personally? She’s who she is.

Tina Knight Flener American Idol, how do I make an informed decision when not all the Hollywood contestants are receiving the same recognition as auditions???? I feel like not all the talent is being showcased equally?

Brandi Stahl I hope these two become a couple despite them going different directions. They're cute together. Keep us updated American Idol.

Dennis Lorenzo, Milo Sposato, William Casanova, Deonte Baker and Aname Rose form a group called Superdope Hotness and "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber during Hollywood Week on American Idol 2018.

Annette Learn If he keeps letting mamma decide…he's gonna decide himself right off that stage. Best come down a peg or two kiddo

Ann Bunny Gell Milo is a spoiled brat and his momma needs to go. I don't like the way he went behind the others back to put himself more in the spotlight. He needs to go on home with his attitude

Nick Gurse They shouldn't allow the parents around when they're practicing. That would be so embarrassing to me. And its not fair to the others trying to practice. And it makes him less attactive to the audience seeing that when it comes voting time.

Cindy Chamberlain Wittkopp I’m not liking this FAST pace….so hard to keep up……and I was SO hoping to see Genavieve’s performances through round 1 and group round with Mara…..didn’t show if they made it through to the next round 

Misty Reed He’s 17 and he’s got his mama calling the shots and she’s not even in the show! Come on somebody needs to put her pushy butt in its place!

Valerie Rivers Ada is good, but should not be qualified as an American Idol winner. We as Americans need to stop making everything acceptable. This is the reason why the world is in a bad position today. Our kids are so confused. Our future is in jeopardy.

Ada Vox If the children of today are confused by what the meaning of the words tolerance, acceptance, and LOVE are, then maybe the issue is the way they're being raised.
An idol is anyone or anything that someone can admire or look up to in some way shape or form. Children should be encouraged to discover their true selves.
If f can inspire and bring light to a community or even ONE person in this world, then everyone who doesn't like what I do, who doesn't appreciate who I am, or doesn't accept that there are other ways of life besides their own don't matter.
I do what I love for the people that love what I do and not for anyone else. That's the way it always has been, and that's the way it always will be.
Be a light in the darkness, not dirt over the flame.

Todd Andrews Oh what a sad mixed up generation. Praying for the hearts, souls and minds of these confused children. Where is your dignity, and why have you chased your perversion and fled from your purity. You are being charged a price that you never intended to pay.

Cathy Prosser Foster How mean was that last stunt the judges pulled off!!! Don't ever do that again to ANY of the contestants! There is not 1 of them that need to be treated that way. No more jokes please, please rise above this kind of stunt! How awful of you!

Rachel Ann I think the judges see something the rest of us don't. Give them a chance! Don't judge the judges until the end of the show! They're all great singer (judges) I feel like they might know what they're looking for.

Laine Hardy, Mia Desaris, Juliana Madrid and Kaitlann Runnells form a group called Soul 4's and perform "Love Yourself" by Justin Bieber at Hollywood Week on American Idol 2018.

Amy Belote Blue I love this guy. I was worried for him He has an incredible voice. He got screwed with that group and that song. Poor guy. Did the best he could. So glad he made it through. Can't wait to see him again solo.

Monica Wilson He’s the whole package! To those complaining of why did they put him with all girls…….I saw other groups where it was all guys and one girl. It doesnt matter who you are paired up with as long as you stand out during your part. Well done!

Nelson Zapeda My overall impression with this performance was that, they didn't blended well at all. It was messed up actually. The girls should thank Laine's presence. The climax of the song begins when Laine sings tbh. It he's not in the group I don't think they will make the cut.

Stephanie Moody Poor boy didn't stand a chance with the girls. Lol bless his heart. Y'all saw how the girls took over! He had no say and he seemed to know he was out numbered. Lol

Lisa Anne Millar Laine for American Idol. Wish my daughter could find a Laine of her own. Oh wait she's dating a Hardy, wonder if they are related? Wonder if he can sing

Ness Molina I don't understand why some singers are not shown at all. Not in audition, not solo or group. We are here in Cleveland waiting to see our very own and we have never seen her perform once, not once!

Megan Adkins Nichols I can't believe he was put with them and had to sing that song. I was worried so glad he went through.

Donna Robb Leonardis Those ladies are going to be their own undoing. They need to practice a little more control among themselves. It is apparent each are trying to complete with the others to take the spotlight.

When Hollywood Week meets the Hunger Games

Crystal Alicea, Lee Vasi, Britney Holmes and Gabbii Jones form a group called Don't Touch and perform "Me and My Broken Heart" by Rixton at Hollywood Week during American Idol 2018.

Tom Ledvorowski What Katy did WAS MEAN, and abusive! I am repulsed that this judge could be allowed to behave so demeaning by playing with people and their dream. Apologies are required

Emily Bennett That girl. Her selflessness will take her further than anything else in this world. Girl, you did something that few people would do. Good on you!

Stephanie Ann What Katy did was apart of what she HAD to do for the show..it's called suspense, twists & sometimes making them and us viewers sit in shock! That's her job on this kind of show..blame the show, not her personally. Geez

Rita Hose Love all 4 of them and that girl with the red hair has a big heart she is a wonderful person had my tears flowing

Marissa Christine Anyone know what happened to the sisters?! The one who played guitar for her sister who ended up having a great voice and they put both sisters through? I didn’t see either one tonight
