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 21-year-old Malcolm Allen. After wowing the judges with his first Hollywood Week performance of “Ready of Love,” Malcolm takes the stage one last time with Mary J. Blige’s “I’m Goin’ Down.”
While Malcolm’s undoubtedly got talent, he can’t help but question himself as his makes his way to the judges. “There’s always that little voice in the back of your head that’s like, ‘You didn’t do good. You could have done better.’ We’re always our worst critic.”
Sitting down in front of the judges, Malcolm gets ready to learn his fate.
“We think you’re a talented guy,” says Harry. “There’s all different types of talent in this competition, but ultimately we have to decide who’s going to make the Top 30. I’d like to say that you made it through.”
And with that, Malcolm has moved on to the next round!
