American Idol: Hollywood Week, The Group Round

February 04, 2009 08:55 PM by Paulene Hinds


Last night onAmerican Idol , 40 contestants were sent packing, those who survived were the lucky ones and tonight they faced group round whichwas the most difficult challenge of the competition. It was a make it or break it situation for the contestants tonight as they chose their potential groups to sing with for the judges.

A few of the guys and gals were left looking for a group in the beginning, but eventually they all found their niche, or so it appeared. Many of the groups began to argue and Tatiana Del Toro’s groupwas already regretting picking her. At one point theycaused her to have a meltdown. She tried to join another group crying, “They’re going to throw me under the bus!” Nancy Wilson initially told her to go away, but eventually gave in and let her join their group. A few hours later though Tatiana decided to go back to her own group andmade Nancy Wilson mad again…oh my! Tatiana’s group then ganged up on her because they all think she is nuts!

Rose Flackwas also regretting her choice. She picked Katrina the Bikini Girl to sing with. She commented, “My group is more concerned with being cute.”


Team Compromise, which was Tatiana’s second group,were arguing too! Nancywas fighting with her team mate for wanting to rest her voice and stated, “I don’t care that you’re crying!”

At Team Diva, Katrina aka Bikini Girl headed off to bed, leaving the rest of her team standing there. As shewent into her room she began to cry. The drama was very evident tonight!

Team Compromise had a cryer too…Nathaniel Marshallwas saying, “I tried my hardest to put my heart in this and get these girls to get along. I don’t know what to do!” Soon after, he and Nancy began to fight.

The next morning Team Divawas ready for the day, they headed off to find Katrina. When they got to her room, her roomate said that shewas sick andwould not be performing. Katrina said that shewas going home. A few hours later though, she surprises her group and shows up at their table ready to sing with them? Theywere not happy!

Tatiana’s group seemed to be getting along, but on occasion youcould see the daggers the other girlswere shooting at her.

Before the groups took to the stage, Simon Cowell came out and told everyone, “If you forget the words, you’re out.”

The First group upwas White Chocolate. India Morrison, Matt Giraud, Kris Allen and Justin Williams. They do an awesome job and they all make it through.

Alex Wagner-Trugman, Anne Marie Boskovich, Emily Wynne-Hughes and Ryan Pinkston called themselves the Action Squad. Ryan Pinkston and Emily Wynne-Hughes don’t make the cut. Her for forgetting the words, him for seeing the devil in Paula’s eyes!

Norman Gentle, who makes it through is thrown into a Simon is Mean montage.


Team Rainbow consists of Danny Gokey, Jamar Rogers, Taylor Vaifanua and an un-named performer. They sing a cappella! Their performance is wonderful and they all make it through.

Next, Jeremy Michael Sarver, Adam Lambert, Matt Breitzke and Jesse Langseth perform and they too all make itthrough.

Team Diva is up! Lauren Barnes and Bikini Girl began to sing. It seemed as if Rose Flack forgot the words and Jasmine Murray looked like shewas ready to run off stage. Simon Cowell stopped the girls from singing and asked them if the group got along. The group told Simon Cowell that Katrina went to bed early. Katrina says, “I was in heels since five in the morning and then I was up til three, and then I have scoliosis and I was sitting on the floor and my back was hurting and I was so tired.” Bonnie Buttons makes it through but, Rose, Lauren and Katrina don’t. Good-bye bikini girl…Paula Abdul and Kara Dioguardi are happy, and Simon Cowellquips, “That girl will go far!”

Tatiana’s teamwas up next. Theywere stopped mid-way through their song and remarkably they all survived.


Last but not least tonightwas Team Compromise. After they sang, the judges saw how disjointed the groupwas and they felt out who they thought was the worst of the worst. Nancy Wilsonwas cut.

After the group rounds, 75 people made it through. Next week on American Idol , the drama continues.It is the last chance to impress the judges with their talent. Who will make up the top 36!
