Synopsis "American Idol" - Hollywood Week- Part 2 - Feb. 7, 2013It's solo day for the remaining 43 guys who made it through group round.If they want they can accompany themselves on their instruments.First up is Paul Jolley who is incredibly stressed out and talks way too much about being incredibly stressed out. He sings "Blown Away" by Carrie Underwood and he sounds just fine. The judges are making cuts after every 8 singers. We next see Lazaro Arbos sing Lady Gaga's "Edge of Glory." He is also nervous but sounds fine. And then Curtis Finch, Jr. who sings "Jar of Hearts" and just slays it. All three are put through from their 8.From the next group we see Devin Velez. He sings "What a Wonderful World." He way overdoes the runs and the Mariah-esque hand gestures. He has a few control issues but mostly he's good, clearly a dedicated singer. We also see Gurpreet Singh Sarin aka the Turbanator who sings "Georgia on My Mind" and strums his guitar with it. And Cortez Shaw who sings "Sunny" and is a little overwrought but strong. Then we see Matheus Fernandes who is very nervous. He sings "Stronger" by Kelly Clarkson. He has both pitch and timing issues. It shows that it's his first time singing with a live band. (Nicki tells him not to milk his height issue anymore. He has proven he's great and should rely on that.) Devin, Gupreet, and Cortez make it as well as a guy named Adam. Matheus does not.From the next group we see Nicholas Mathis who sings "Locked Out of Heaven" by Bruno Mars. It's not perfect and he has some breath issues but, again, he can clearly sing and be strong if he could control it more.We also see Papa Peachez who sings "You and I" by Lady Gaga in an oddly low register. Nicki is mad that he didn't step up like she asked him to the day before. She berates him pretty seriously. And then we seeJimmy Smith who sings "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac. It's good, consistent but not amazing. Of the ones they featured only Jimmy Smith is going forward (along with Johnny Keyser and Vincent Powell.) Nicholas is very upset.In the next group we see Nick Boddington who is a returnee who got cut in Vegas last year. He decides to play piano and sings "Stars" by Grace Potter and the Nocturnals. He does a lovely job, hitting some high notes and holding them well. Also Charlie Askew who sings "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye and does a long intro for it. He's obviously nervous but throws himself into it and sounds pretty good. Nicki says he's become an artist. He says he glorifies weirdness. Nicki tells him to stay himself. Both Nick and Charlie are through as well as JDA and Mathnee.We get a back to back montage of guys singing "Jar of Hearts" by Christina Perri including Burnell Taylor who does a fine job andMarvin Calderon who also sounds pretty good. Both are through.The next group includes Micah Johnson, aka tonsilectomy guy. He sings "I Told You So" by Randy Travis. It's lovely, he's got a nice, deep tone and nice control of dynamics, telling a whole story in just a minute. But they send him away. It's sad. Oddly he's told alone, not as part of a group. He's very gracious in departure.The ones that got put through are called back onstage and told that the following Thursday that 20 will stay and 8 will have to go and they won't know which ones until next week.

Starring Ryan Seacrest, Mariah Carey, Randy Jackson, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban, more...
