‘American Idol’ Live Blog: Hollywood Week Begins With Incredible New Performances

Hollywood Week is here on season 17 of ‘American Idol’! Who will make the cut to continue on in the competition? Follow along with our live blog of the March 24 episode here!

The next round of competition has begun on the March 24 episode of American Idol! It’s Hollywood Week, which means all 175 of the judges’ audition picks are in Cali to sing for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie once again. The contestants are split into ‘lines’ for the first portion of this competition, with the judges choosing only a certain number of people from each line to move on. Up first is Laci Kaye Booth, who puts a country twist on Aretha Franklin’s “Natural Woman” for her performance and brings the judges to their feet.

Alejandro Aranda is also on Laci’s line, and his rendition of “Sorry” by Justin Bieber also MAJORLY impresses the judges. Once the entire line performs, it’s judgement time. Katy, Lionel and Luke choose Laci and Alejandro as part of the group who will move forward. Up next is Courtney Penry, who is super overwhelmed and emotional, even in tears, ahead of her performance. She sings “I’m A Whole Lotta Woman,” and even though she forgets the words, she leaves the performance with confidence. Unfortunately, it’s not enough to send her through, and Courtney is part of her line who’s sent home.

Keep refreshing because we’ll be updating our recap all episode long!
