What's Hot Today

'American Idol' Group Night: Briana Oakley and Andrina Brogden shine

It's time for the group performances for "American Idol" Season 13. We were sadly robbed of much of the drama during last night's first Hollywood Week episode, but we have high hopes for tonight because there are always some groups that nail it and some that absolutely tank.Standouts include:Three Mo' Days, made up of three people who have all been in the Hollywood Week group round before. Interesting. They sing "Too Close" and it's pretty solid, but one member does get cut.Country group Backstreet Cowboys does a twangy version of "I Want It That Way," plus they're super adorable. They all make it through.There's a four-girl group that does "Done" and the two girls we get solo snippets of are both solid, Paula Hunt and Andrina Brogden (above, left).

"American Idol" kicked off Hollywood Week Wednesday (Feb. 5), starting with the new Hollywood or Home round, which saw the judges welcome all 212 golden ticket recipients into the ... not Rooms of Doom yet. The Hanger of ... Harm? The Hanger of Hysteria? We like that, the Hanger of Hysteria.Inside the Hanger of Hysteria, the hopefuls are told that several of them were going to have to sing right then and there and some of that group will be cut immediately. We don't know exactly how many people were asked to sing, but they were the people the judges were on the fence about after the initial auditions. Some rise to the challenge and prove why they were there. And some do not. After sending away the contestants who did not have to sing for their lives, the judges employ a kind of cruel (and kind of funny) twist. They divide the singers who... //blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2014/02/american-idol-xiii-hollywood-week-group-night-cannot-arrive-fast-enough.html
