American Idol Hollywood Week Solos – Recap [VIDEOS]

Hollywood week continues on American Idol, as the solo rounds cut the boys from the men.  Several early favorites were sent home on last night’s episode.

Micah Johnson, who suffers from a speech impediment after a botched tonsil surgery, didn’t measure up to the talent in Hollywood and was sent home.  Matheus Fernandes, the short 22 year-old, hadn’t sang with a band before, and it showed.  He was let go too.

On the other hand, a number of guys stood out during the solo rounds.

Gurpreet Singh Sarin easily moved on after putting his own flavor on Ray Charles’ ‘Georgia on My Mind.’

Socially awkward Charlie Askew did a great intro to Goyte’s ‘Somebody I Used to Know,’ and had Nicki Minaj telling him to stay his quirky self.

‘Jar of Hearts’ seem to be a popular choice and helped Curtis Finch Jr., Burnell Taylor and Marvin Calderson make it through the next round. Finch Jr. has been an early favorite, but I predict his ‘vocal calisthenics’ will wear thin, quickly with the viewers.

Paul Jolly had trouble with his nerves, but manged to get through his version of Carrie Underwood’s ‘Blown Away,’ and made it through, barely.  Stutter Lazaro Arbos also moved on with Lady Gaga’s ‘Edge of Glory.’

The girls will sing for their spot in the Top 20 next Wednesday & Thursday on Fox at 8 p.m.  The Top 40 will be revealed Thursday night, or you can check out the American Idol Spoiler Top 40 Alert.
