Gurpreet Sarin performs on American Idol 2013

Forgotten lyrics, the bane of American Idol’s Hollywood Week, reared its ugly head many times last night on Season 12’s first night in Los Angeles and the group B Side wasn’t immune.

The group’s performers, including rumored Top 40 Gurpreet Sarin and Chris Watson, struggled with the words of Maroon 5’s “Payphone” but still managed to find a way through to the next round.
