Audition rounds are finally over and now the American Idol 2014 hopefuls are headed for Hollywood! It won’t be like all the over Hollywood Weeks we’ve seen before, however, as Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and Harry Connick Jr. revealing a surprising twist to the contestants — the “Hollywood or Home” round!
“The last few days, we’ve been reviewing everybody’s audition, and we’re going to be selecting some of you to come up here and sing a song of your choice,” explains Keith.
“There will be cuts made today,” adds Harry. “The stakes are very, very high, so we want everybody to take this very seriously.”
The competition begins immediately, as the roughly 60 of the 200 contestants sing for their lives, including former Season 9 hopeful Neco Starr.
Later, Majesty Rose, Kenzie Hall, and Munfarid Zaidi (aka Cradle Kid) take the regular Hollywood stage for the first solo performances of the week. Will they wow the judges with their individual renditions of popular songs? Only time will tell!
