According to TV Guide, the "American Idol" Season 13 Episode 8 titled "Hollywood Round, Week #1" will show the AI contestants who passed the surprise "Hollywood or Home Round" wherein around 60 of them (including the ones who only got 2 yeses) were asked to perform again in front of the AI Season 13 judges Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr. and Keith Urban. Those who pass will get to continue on their road to Hollywood while those who fail this round will immediately be sent home.
According to mjsbigblog, the AI hopefuls who have passed the judges' scrutiny include Filipino-American Malaya Watson, Jordan Brisbane, Emily Piriz, Caleb Johnson, Marrialle Sellars, Ben Briley and Neco Starr. They will perform solo and group performances with their fellow contestants Casey Thrasher, Maurice Townsend, Malcolm Allen, Ethan Harris, Dexter Roberts, Spencer Lloyd, C.J. Harris, George Lovett, Sam Woolf, Briston Maroney, Alex Preston and Emmanuel Zidor at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles, California. Other AI hopefuls who reportedly made it (according to The Idol Pad and mjsbigblog) are Jena Irene Asciutto, Briana Oakley, Kristen O'Connor, Andrina Brogden, Kenzie Hall, Majesty York, Bria Anai Johnson, Austin Wolfe, Brandy Neelly, Jillian Jensen, M.K. Nobilette - AKA Emkay Brazil and Jess Meuse.
The AI judges Urban, Lopez and Connick, Jr. reportedly couldn't decide between Ben Briley and Neco Starr that's why there are 31 contestants (16 boys and 15 girls) instead of just 30 contestants. America will be given a chance to vote in order to decide who gets to stay or who gets to go between Starr and Briley.
As promised by the "American Idol" producers, newer songs such as "Can't Hold Us" by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis/Ray Dalton, will be included in the line-up. But, there will still be older songs like "What The World Needs Now" by Burt Bacharach and The Posies/Jackie DeShannon.
