WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Idol Chatter: Group Night

Idol Chatter: Group Night

It was a mix of major talent and major drama--all a part of the infamous group night!

Some of the night's favorites

A group of 3 contestants who have been on the Idol stage in previous years-but weren't quite ready.   They're back, and hoping to have the same success as Idol's Candice Glover (who came back and won it all).
Strong showing from David Oliver Willis and Sarina Joi Crowe...Tony Foster didn't quite make the cut.  David and Sarina know what to expect, and this could give them an edge as the competition continues.

The judges loved the group that called themselves Backstreet Cowboys.  These three country contestants (Casey Thrasher, Dexter Roberts and Ben Briley) created a group, and sang a country version of the Backstreet Boys'  "I Want It That Way".  Seemed to be a judges favorite, and all three made it through.

A group that included MK Nobette and the amazing Briana Oakley wowed the judges, and Briana clearly stood out as one of the best of the night.

We had been watching a group that included three young girls and then added pink-haired Jessica Meuse.  The problem with this group was that one of the moms was directing everything, and also loved to dance and show off for the camera.  The group struggled with their performance--but the judges ultimately kept everyone except the girl with the stage mom.  And even after her daughter was eliminated, she continued to criticize and direct everyone--Very annoying!  

It was a night full of cuts- and we are getting closer to finding out who will make it to the live shows!
