American Idol 2012 hopefuls who make it through the Hollywood Weeks will take a journey to Las Vegas. Previously we heard a cryptic message saying Idol Hopefuls better not mind getting wet which now makes sense considering they were performing at The Wynn’s Le Reve stage as seen in the picture above.
Originally it was reported the Vegas round would be set at Cirque Du Soleil’s “Immortal” stage featuring Michael Jackson’s catalog. For whatever reason things shifted over to 1950’s music because that’s far more relevant, right?? Read on for your American Idol spoilers from the Las Vegas round.
Songs were randomly assigned, but all were selected from the 1950’s theme. No word yet on just what songs were selected for the Hopefuls, but, once again thanks to The Idol Pad, we have the alleged groups.
Las Vegas groups included, but not limited to:
- Amber Caparas, Brittany Hammond, Lauren Daigle
- Ariel Sprague, David Leathers
- Ashley Robles, Stephanie Renae, Wayne Wilson
- Brielle Von Hugel, Schyler Dixon
- Courtney Williams, Brittnee Kellogg
- Eben Franckewitz, Elise Testone, Haley Johnsen, Reed Grimm
- Johnny Keyser, Scott Dangerfield
Only one American Idol group was reported to have received a standing ovation. Those singers included Eben Franckewitz, Elise Testone, Haley Johnsen, and Reed Grimm.
Then there were supposedly a few quick eliminations as a result of their performances in Sin City:
- Candice Glover
- Gabrielle Carrubba
- Johnny Keyser
- Schyler Dixon
There will be even more American Idol spoilers coming soon for the season’s Top 24 so keep an eye on the site for more news.
If they’re going 50s, hopefully there will be some Doo Wop because that lends itself to groups beautifully. Also, I hope they leave Elvis songs off the table. Let us hear some Rick Nelson or Bobby Darrin for a change.
without Elvis, we still got Roy Orbison, Buddy Holly , Fats Domino,
Chuck Berry , Little Richard , Everley Brothers , Ray Charles , Sam Cooke , Jerry Lee Lewis , Jackie Wilson , Dion & The Belmonts , Brenda Lee, Cliff Richard , Etta James , Ritchie Valens and the list goes on too many to mention, besides the two great singers you mentioned. Wow
Flashback Heaven , Yes, bring it on…….:)
Hi Ed: Not to mention Fats Domino, The Dell Vikings, Skyliners, Coasters, Pat Boone [shudder], The Kingston Trio, Dinah Washington, Nancy Wilson etc. Knowing them, the choices will be such a short list that we’ll be stuck with the same tired old songs.
Templar; I would like to hear them have to sing Steve Perry of Journeys songs. Steve has a very special voice. My son had me close my eyes and pick between Arnel Pineda (spelling?) I could tell the difference every time it changed from Arnel to Steve. And every time it changed from Steve toArnel. I also am a great fan of Rick Nelson. I grew up watching him. What a dreamy look he had on his face when he sang. He is missed . I also like Bobby Darrin too. Dream Lover is a good one. No we don’t need anymore Elvis songs either. I agree. Have a nice day.

Hi Sherry: I saw Journey with Steve Perry and also with Steve Augeri who did sound a lot like him. Never saw Arnel. Since Journey was 80’s that will have to come later. Since Idol is such a cash cow, I wish they would spring for a bigger songbook for the hopefuls. I guess it has a lot to do with the band having to learn an arrangement for a song they’ll only use once. That would take up a lot of rehearsal time. Have a good one.
Though very difficult for most singers to do, they should have left it with the Michael Jackson catalogue.
Do they go home if they didn’t get eliminated or do they stay thru?
Oh so it is a top 24 not 42? shoot I thought it meant the top 42 would be performing for our votes. My faves better make it!
I liked the Auditions and looked foward to them every year when they showed the wacko’s, don’t care for the way the show is now!!!!
WTF why Candice eliminated? she have a good voice… maybe the judges are deaf ear -_-
