AI12 Las Vegas Round Performance Options
Posted by TIP at 4:42 PM
For the top 40 round, as in Hollywood Round 3, contestants are allowed to perform an original song and/or use an instrument. In the previous round, several contestants (at least 5 females that we know of) took the risk of performing their own self-created music, even free-styling in the case of Zoanette Johnson. It apparently paid off for most of them, especially Angela Miller whose moment at the piano received the only standing ovation by all 4 judges for a solo performance during the Hollywood Rounds. Jett Hermano also advanced upon highlighting herself as a lyricist. This next round is an opportunity for contestants to not only showcase their abilities as songwriters once more, but also make history as it will have been the first time such performance has been done in a setting with an audience of fans as if it were live.
