Television American Idol is another step closer to revealing its 36 semifinalists.
Following group performances by the remaining 104 crooners, host Ryan Seacrest announced at the end of Wednesday’s episode that about 75 hopefuls made it through to the next round of Hollywood Week on the eighth season of the popular Fox singing competition.
Much of the episode focused on bickering and sobbing singers rather than their group routines performed for the judges.
Among the hopefuls cut: Katrina “Bikini Girl” Darrell, confrontational Nancy Wilson, happy-go-lucky Austin Sisneros, dreadlocked Rose Flack, Southern belle Deanna Brown and David Osmond, the son of the eldest singing Osmond brother.
