American Idol season 10 Hollywood round
Tonight, the Hollywood round begins for American Idol season 10. Over 300 contestants made it to Hollywood on American Idol season 10, compared to less than 200 in the previous seasons, but only 20 will be chosen to compete in this season, and only one will be crowned the tenth American Idol. In New Jersey, we got the hard-luck Bronx tale of Travis Orlando. In New Orleans, we got the jazzy music teacher Jordan Dorsey, the J. Lo fanatic Jovany Barreto, and the social outcast Brett Loewenstern, as well as 15-year-old Lafayette native Jaycee Badeaux. The Milwaukee auditions gave us country crooner Scott McCreery, soul sister Naima Adedapo, bar mitzvah soul singer Jerome Bell, and a stellar 15-year-old girl Thia Megia. It also yielded the emotional story of Chris Medina. The auditions came to a dramatic conclusion with hard-luck 21-year-old father James Durbin, Colombian exile Julie Zorrilla, and car crash survivor Stefano Lagone.
