Here's 17-year-old Taylor Vaifanua, a producer favorite who's shown forgetting her lyrics during group round in Hollywood. Whatever. She should still make it. She's Jordin Sparks 2.0.
Dramatic pause ensues...and she's in! Of course, we get a shot of the judges praising her one more time.
Never miss a local story.
Also advancing: Jasmine Murray, Arianna Afasr, Casey Carlson, Stevie Wright, Megan Corkrey, Mishavonna Henson. That's all shown in a quick montage. Wow, the guys are getting so much more air time this season.
The exception: Joanna Pacitti, the quasi-pro who's had one of her songs covered by Britney Spears. She also apparently forgot lyrics in every song she sang in Hollywood.
Kara wants to know when Joanna is finally going to show the world who she is. Simon steps in and answers, "When someone finally gives her a chance."
Hmm...like all her previous record labels?
Anyway, Joanna's in.
