American idol 2019 Hollywood Week

Madison Vandenberg sings "All I Ask" by Adele at Hollywood Week in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Uche sings Alessia Cara's "Scars To Your Beautiful" at Hollywood Week in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Tyler Mitchell – Broken Halos by Chris Stapleton – He’s the country singer from the Oklahoma oil fields. He works 12 hours a day 7 days a week sometimes. But even that is easier than Hell Week. His family urged him to audition. Tyler has such a pleasing, effortless tone. Uh oh. HE FORGETS THE WORDS. “I’ve sang that song a 1000 times,” Tyler says, kicking himself. “I feel like I let my family down.” Aw. He’s crying. Katy is thinking no. Luke is a maybe.

Nate Walker sings "Always On My Mind" by Willie Nelson at Hollywood Week in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Wade Cota performs an original tune called "Stay" at Hollywood Week in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

 He totally flubbed his lyrics during group rounds. Just to be sure he knows the song, he’s performing an original song, about a terrible break up he had. “I did not get it,” says Lionel. Yeah, that performance was weak. That song had no melody.

Eddie Island – 1974 (Original) – He’s passionate about singing originals! The year means nothing to him (but it is the year Seacrest was born). I woke up and somebody had written it on a whiteboard. Kat wasn’t impressed with the song. Neither am I. 

Kai the Singer – Lost Without You by Freya Ridings – She’s the young vocalist who comes from near poverty. Her church helps her family out. She had never been on an escalator before, never mind the plane ride! This performance is much better than her audition. She’s better not playing an instrument–her pitch has improved so much. She still needs work, but there’s potential. Katy notes her nerves, “She needs confidence.” Poor Kai feels the weight of the world on her shoulders. “I need to do this for my church, my family.” 

Juan Pablo – Million Reasons by Lady Gaga – Katy said he verged on queso (cheese!) Bobby urges him to be himself no matter what. He decides to get serious. And it’s actually a bad idea. His vocal is nasally and off key. He needs the dumb Latin stereotypes to hide behind. This performance is tragic. Katy turns to Lionel to say his presentation was fine, but his vocals were lacking. 

Ryan Hammond – All I Ask by Adele – He lost 170 pounds in 18 months after surgery. Ryan wonders how he’s digging deep to be confidence. Ryan says losing weight really helped.  Ryan has massive range, but I’m not in love with his tone. 

Seventy singers remain. 30 will go home.  On to the final solos, which will be performed with the full band. Bandleader Kris Poole is in the house. After the performances, the singers will be split up into three rooms. You know the drill! The judges will visit each room to either deliver great or devastating news.  A Top 40 will emerge from this round. 

Logan Johnson, Nate Walker, Gazzie White, Ruthie Craft – HOLY COW. This performance is atrocious. Longan forgets his words. the rest of the group sounds horrible. Nate is awful. TRAINWRECK. Luke understands that he’s sick, but he must give the judges his full part. He starts and stops. The judges urge him on. He does finish. He’s being such a baby about this. And, inexplicably the entire group is through to the next round. What. The. Hell. Logan, Nate, Gazzie and Ruthie through to the next round.

Walker Burroughs Sings "Your Song" by Elton John at Hollywood Week 

Alejandro Aranda sings "Sorry" by Justin Bieber in front of Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie at Hollywood Week.

The audition was a blur for him. The experience is “pushing me out of my boundaries” he says. He has self doubt, which Bobby is on hand to help.  His guitar playing continues to be mesmerizing. He definitely puts his own spin on the hit. The judges are kinda freaking out in their seats. Katy throws her jacket. Luke and Lionel join her!

It’s line of 10 time.  The other singers join Laci and Alejandro on stage. Alejandro, Laci and Kay Kay are asked to step forward. They are through. Katy warns them to work on their confidence. The rest are eliminated.

 Katy had called the country singer a “diamond in the rough.” Laci does a bluesy version of the song on an acoustic guitar. This doesn’t sound very country? But it’s still a good arrangement! Her voice sounds a little rough. And it’s the beginning of the week. Still, love her rasp.

Madison Vandenberg sings "Already Gone" by Kelly Clarkson in front of Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry at Hollywood Week.

Margie Mays sings "Lay Me Down" by Sam Smith in front of Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie at Hollywood Week.

Logan Johnson sings "Sensible Heart" by City And Colour in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie at Hollywood Week.

Eddie Island sings "I'll Follow You Into The Dark" by Death Cab For Cutie in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie at Hollywood Week.
