If there’s anything we’ve learned from watching years of American Idol, it’s that Hollywood Week is not to be taken lightly. Grueling rehearsals, clashing personalities, and the possibility of your dreams crashing down around you all lead to a pretty stressful environment for the eager contestants.
That said, some of the hopefuls seem more than ready to take the live Idol stage, including 24-year-old Emmanuel Zidor. The singer’s had some ups and downs since we first met him back in San Francisco (like that rocky group performance of “Say My Name”), but he’s ready to show that he’s got what it takes it make it all the way to the end.
When Hollywood Week returns on February 12, Emmanuel takes the stage with a fierce rendition of “I’m Goin’ Down.” Not only can he belt it out with the best of them, but he proves he’s got the personality to back it up when he challenges J.Lo to a walk-off in heels.
Watch the video below for a sneak peek at Emmanuel's Hollywood Week performance, then let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
