'American Idol' Hollywood Continues: Best Group Week Ever?

by Hilary Rothing, posted Feb 16th 2011 3:45PM
It's group week on 'American Idol' and you know what that means! Those who deserve to make it to the end will complement each other, while the contestants who squeaked by last week will be exposed for the frauds they are. Or so we hope.

This week, we'll be on the look out for a number of contestants who've been buzzed about online, although they've yet to be prominently featured on the show.

And we're also expecting to be as blown away with the groups as Nigel was. That's right, Nigel Lythgoe told the contestants that these were the best group rounds the show has seen. We'll believe it when we hear it!

According to intel gathered by Joe's Place, we should expect to be hearing some great group renditions of Maroon 5, Bruno Mars and Duffy tunes, if Nigel knows his stuff. And we suspect he does.

Look for jazzman Casey Abrams and 'Summertime' singer Julie Zorrilla to perform together. The two are apparently not strangers as, rumor has it, they went to the prom together. Aww, no 'Idol' love story?

Another interesting match up? Rob Bolin and ex-girlfriend Chelsee Oaks in a group with new bestie, Jacqueline Dunford. Remember her boyfriend, Nick Fink didn't make the cut last week. We sense a love triangle forming!

We'll also be on the look out for potential drama from one Tiffany Rios, who decided to talk a little smack about her competition ... right before group week. Good thing this isn't 'Jeopardy!'

And two contestants we're excited to finally see this week are Hawaiian music influenced Deandre Brackensick and Nashville's Colton Dixon. If you want to get a preview of what these two rather original 'Idol' hopefuls have in store for us, check out our 'American Idol' spoilers!


'American Idol' airs tonight at 8PM on FOX.
