American Idol 15: Hollywood Week #1

Lines of 10

Idol is on fast forward this season so we see a one hour episode featuring some of the contestants who advance to the group round and a few of the contestants who are going home.

Here are the contestants named during the episode or that I recognized who will be advancing to the group rounds:

Jordan Sasser
Dalton Rappattoni
Jaci Butler
Shelbie Zora
Jenn Blosil
Thomas Stringfellow
Olivia Rox
Zach Person - not named
Jessica Cabral
Sonika Vaid
La'Porsha Renae
Manny Torres
Daniel Farmer
Lee Jean
Jeneve Rose Mitchell
Gianna Isabella
Tristan McIntosh
Michelle Marie
Cameron Richard - not named
Trent Harmon
Miranda "Poh" Scott
Emily Brooke
Kory Wheeler- not named

Going Home:
Melanie Tierce
Harrsion Cohen
Melany Huber
Krysti jewel Chavez
Kerry Courtney
Brook Sample
Usen Isong
Reanna Molinaro
Ethan Kuntz
Jake Dillon

I did a little digging and found out some interesting things about some of those advancing:

Dalton Rappattoni was discovered in 2012 during a talent search and became a member of the Disney boy band IM5.

Idol told us that Dalton and Jaci Butler know each other from working together in a "Battle of the Bands."

Shelbie Z (Zora) was on Season 5 of The Voice.

Sonika Vaid was on Season 4 of The Voice.

Emily Brooke made it to the Top 48 of Idol last season.

Gianna Isabella was on X Factor 3.

Kory Wheeler was on Idol last season.

Trent Harmon auditioned for The Voice.

So far, of the contestants shown on this episode, I still like Dalton, Manny, Tristan, Sonika, but the contest is still young and the craziness of group rounds hasn't been shown yet.  Personality and attitude are important to me.

Well, that's it for now. I'll let you know how group rounds go tomorrow.
