American Idol in Hollywood: It's Ladies Night!

by at . Comments

Do girls really run the world?

American Idol attempted to answer that question last night, giving the fairer sex a platform to perform in Hollywood.

The remaining 76 female contestants were shoehorned into 19 quartets, most of which included at least one troublemaker.

So, who advanced to the next round of cuts?

Candice Glover (above) stood out from the pack, as did Janelle Arthur for her rendition of "I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry."

By the end end of tonight, 20 women will remain (along with 20 men) and the following names are still in the running:

  • Angela Miller
  • Victoria Acosta
  • Briana Oakley
  • Kez Ban
  • Zoanette Johnson
  • Shubha Vedula
  • Cristabel Clack

Who was your favorite from Wednesday night?


American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
