American Idol 15: Hollywood Week - #3 Solo Rounds

This show the remaining contestants had to pick a song and learn it in one night. There couldn't be more than 3 contestants with the same song and the song would be performed with the band. The judges wouldn't be giving any feedback. After everyone performed, the judges will split up the contestants into 3 rooms - two advance, one goes home.


Stephany Negrete
After last weeks perception of Stephany as being someone difficult to work with, the producers are now showing us a sad story about Stephany being all alone at Hollywood because her dad had recently had a heart procedure and was still recovering.
Set Fire To The Rain - Adele she is not, but it wasn't a bad performance.

Thomas Stringfellow
He is very nervous and feels that he messed up the song. His voice did crack a little.  Keith said it was a terrible song choice.

Avalon Young
She is also nervous. She was bad, but could have done better.

Olivia Rox
First time we've seen her in Hollywood. She sang an original song and it was pretty good.
Keith said she has decent songwriting skills for a 16 yr old.

John Wayne Schulz
His lucky black cowboy hat he always wears when he sings is missing.
He sang John 3:16 by Keith and it is nice but a little tame. He seemed kind of timid without his hat.

Mackenzie Bourg
He sang an original song, "Roses" and it was really good. The judges are amazed that he wrote the song. Keith said it sounded like a lost Ed Sheeran track.

Shelbie Z
Her voice is good for country, but she really needs a stylist to help her find clothing suitable for her body.

Kory Wheeler
He has a good country voice on "Fix You."

James VIII
He isn't confident in his singing because he has always been in the background playing guitar, not singing leads. He actually has a great voice.

Tristan McIntosh
Tristan had a major meltdown when she couldn't sing the song she wanted. Malie gave her the song and changed to something else.
Song was dedicated to Tristan's mom. She sounds good. She kind of looks like Selena Gomez the way she is wearing her hair.

Sonika Vaid
Producers are putting a nicer light on Sonika as well as Stephany tonight. Sonika tells America that Hollywood Week has been difficult. The judges like her voice, but she need to work on her performance skills.

Lee Jean
He is talented, but so young. I like the tone of his voice and his attitude.

Sara Strum
She has a good voice, but uses odd pronunciations on some words.

Jenn Blosil
Jenn sang True Colors and did ok. She messed up some words and sounded really tired. She was very emotional.

Emily Brooke
Her voice sounds very tired also. She tells the camera that the song was not in the key she had wanted.

Malie Delgado
She has laryngitis. She really struggled to get the song out at all.

Mionne (pronunced -my own) Destiny
She also has laryngitis. She found just enough voice to perform the song.

Jessica Cabral
She is also fighting laryngitis.

Joshua Wicker
Joshua is tired and nervous. He looses his voice while singing. This whole thing has been too much for him.

CJ Johnson
He is still trying to be recognized. I feel like he is pushing is voice too hard, but he is liked by the judges.

Jeneve Rose Mitchell
This girl is sooooo country. She has a really good voice and seems to really be strong willed. I thought she would have fallen apart by now. Maybe a little less country-wear would help her in the future.

Dalton Rappattoni
Dalton says "Hollywood has been a big wake-up." Dalton has a shaky start to his solo - no power to guitar. When he does start, Dalton later tells us he blanked out and doesn't know how the performance went. Conscious or not, Dalton knows how to perform, even if it is only for 90 seconds.
