Adam Lambert was among several American Idol hopefuls who gave the judges something to believe in during the final round of Hollywood Week.
Adam Lambert was among several "American Idol" hopefuls who gave the judges something to believe in during the final round of Hollywood Week.
Lambert, the theatre actor who wowed the judges with a stripped down version of Cher's "Believe," was one of the contestants put through to the next stage of competition on the Fox singing contest.
During Tuesday's episode, 72 hopefuls performed with a band, backup singers and - if they chose - instruments.
A few of the contestants, including Joanna Pacitti and Casey Carlson, flubbed the lyrics.
Stephen Fowler also forgot the words - twice. That didn't matter though because they made it, along with such hopefuls as the oh-so-emotional Tatiana Del Toro.
