We’ve reached the final round of American Idol Hollywood Week, and let’s just say the process has been a doozy! Grueling rehearsals, clashing personalities, and mounting illnesses have all taken their toll on the contestants — not to mention the possibility of their dreams coming crashing down around them.

That said, some of the hopefuls seem more than ready to compete for the semi-finals, including Atlanta auditioner George Lovett. Determined not to go down without a fight, the 24-year-old singer takes the stage with “I Won’t Give Up” by Jason Mraz.

George’s passionate rendition of the song earns him a standing ovation from Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban. It should be pretty clear that he’s going to sail through to the next round, but his heart is still pounding as he makes the long elevator ride to learn his date.

“I was worried about you in the beginning,” J.Lo reveals. “But I’m going to ask you to be in the Top 15 [guys]!”

And with that, George has made it through to the next round!
