Nick Boddington, Mathenee Treco + Group Impress Judges with ‘Somebody to Love’ on ‘American Idol’

It’s safe to say that not all of the groups on tonight’s Hollywood episode of ‘American Idol’ (Feb. 6) meshed very well, but Nick Boddington, Mathenee Treco, Matheus Fernandes and Gabe Brown really lucked out. The quartet delivered a stunning performance of Queen’s ‘Somebody to Love’ that started — and ended — on a positive note.

The group’s rich, falsetto harmonies blended wonderfully together, and their solos were spot-on as well. Brown even hit a particularly powerful note toward the end that made ‘Idol’ judge Keith Urban say, “oooh!”

“Way to start the day!” exclaimed Randy Jackson, clearly pleased by their performance. “It was pretty impressive, I think you guys gelled well,” agreed Nicki Minaj, who was sure to remind them that, “However, today’s the day that people are sent home.”

After putting their heads together, the judges called Fernandes, Boddington and Treco forward, making it seem like Brown was the odd man out. After a long, nail-bitingly suspenseful pause, Minaj finally beckoned Brown forward as well. “You guys did an amazing job, you should be so proud of yourselves,” she praised.

All four contestants were sent through, meaning that they remain safe in the ‘Idol’ competition.
