Finally! Last Thursday's episode of 'American Idol' spotlighted ambulances and montages of nervous contestants throwing up in trash cans, but this week the singing is back. Seconds after disjointed and dramatic girl group the Bettys offered up an over-soloing train wreck, the group Groovesauce "set the bar" at Wednesday's group day, according to Randy Jackson.
As Hollywood Week continued, three 'Idol' hopefuls made their way in front of the judges to prove their singing chops.
The stakes are high in Hollywood Round 1 this week as some wannabe stars are hitting their marks and others are just hitting strings of wrong notes. After we enjoyed a line of epic foibles (like one girl begging in a high squeak, "Can I just sing one more note? Just one more?" ... ), Steven Tyler went backstage to offer a bit of a pep talk to the nervous contestants, urging that he wanted to see some snapping, yelling and "freaking out."
After the first half hour of the 2012 People's Choice Awards focused on the best actors and actresses of the year, the show then turned to music entertainment -- starring Demi Lovato! The 'Skyscraper' songstress brought the first musical offering to the stage with her most recent single 'Give Your Heart a Break' from her 2011 record 'Unbroken.' Dressed in a bold red gown, silver sparkling earrings and funky jewelry, Lovato hit the stage with an honest performance.
