It’s do or die time on American Idol 2013, and Cortez Shaw had the judges split with his short yet explosive version of Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.” Nicki Minaj hated it, while the other judges were less vocal about their opinions.
 
So how far does Cortez get on Season 12? Well, so far he's made it all the way to the Top 10 semi-finals, but we're not feeling too strongly about his chances of making the Top 10.
 
What did you think of his Hollywood Week performance?
