Arthur Gunn, 22, chose the singer/songwriter category and wowed the judges with a cover of “Hard to Handle” by the Black Crowes. While Gunn sometimes got so lost in the music that he forgot the crowd, his voice instantly stood out as something special. He had a raw edge and  made the song his own. When he finished, the judges stood up and encouraged him to keep singing.

“The spirit that came off that stage,” Richie said. “Oh my god.”

Julia Gargano, 21, also advanced to the next round, with a voice that rang crystal clear with Brandi Carlile’s “The Joke.”

But not everyone made it to the next round. Marna Michele, 27, gave it her all with Elvis Presley’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love,” but found herself on the chopping block.

His only singing experience was on the back of a garbage truck.

Though celebrity offspring Jane Carrey made it through to Hollywood Week , she didn't make it through the first round. Jim Carrey's 24-year-old waitress daughter wanted to use the Idol stage as an opportunity to break away from her father's limelight.

Singers Francisco Martin, 18, and Jonny West, 23, had to battle the pre-show jitters, but both performed well, singing “Hold Back The River” by James Bay and “Someone You Loved” by Lewis Capaldi, respectively. 

Dillon James, 26, brought star power to his performance with a voice that sounded like a young Bob Dylan. Before "Idol," James had played small roles in Hallmark movies (and met Dolly Parton) but also struggled with homelessness and addiction. He put his own spin on Billy Joel's “Vienna.”

Martin, West and James made it to the next round. 

Choosing the pop category, Genavieve Linkowski, 21, had more luck in Hollywood this time around. She  bonded with Margie Mays; both had been to Hollywood week before, only to be eliminated. Determined not to go home this time, Linkowski belted the lyrics to Calum Scott’s “You Are the Reason.”

“She’s definitely grown; I like it,” judge Katy Perry said.

Also performing in the pop category, Mays, 26, made it to the next round with Christina Aguilera’s “The Voice Within," along with Nick Merico, 23, and 17-year-old Kimmy Gabriela. Performing “I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know” by Donny Hathaway, Merico entered Hollywood week with a chip on his shoulder, out to prove himself after constructive criticism from Richie during his audition.

Gabriela’s performance of “Say Something” by A Great Big World was so good that Perry wanted to stop the competition and declare her the winner on the spot. 

“The show’s over,” Perry exclaimed, walking off before she was coaxed back to her chair by Richie. 

Louis Knight, 19, and Robert Taylor, 27, also made it to the next round. Knight performed “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” by Diana Ross on the piano. The British singer had a clear range but a generic sound. Taylor, on the other hand, was all falsetto in his cover of “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin.  

Kay Genyse, 20, wore a wreath of plants and flowers atop her head, strutting across the stage to “Ain’t Nobody (Loves Me Better)” by Felix Jaehn, but unfortunately, she didn’t have the voice to match.

While Genyse didn’t make it to the next round, some of her competitors did, including Shannon Gibbons, 20, who sang “All I Want” by Kodaline, Bilaal Avaz, 19, who performed “Stone Cold” by Demi Lovato, and Lauren Spencer-Smith, 16, who sang “Because of You” by Kelly Clarkson. 

In the R&B category, Just Sam, 21, pulled out all the stops with “Hearts Ain’t Gonna Lie” by Arlissa. A subway performer, Sam brought along a lucky   box that she used to collect tips on the train. On a night of great performances, Sam was a standout, and the judges were so moved by her voice they left their seats to deposit money into the box. 

“I think what she’s doing is she is watching this competition and realizing she needs to rise to the occasion,” Perry said. Also moving forward in the R&B category were Cyniah Elise, 17, who received a standing ovation for “All I Ask” by Adele and Maykayla Phillips, 17, who sang “And I Am Telling You” by Jennifer Hudson. 

Lauren Mascitti, 27, and Hannah Prestridge, 24, were the standouts in the country category. Mascitti's twang was perfect for “Don’t It Make My Brown Eyes Blue” by Crystal Gayle, and Prestridge channeled Miranda Lambert with “Over You.”

But in a surprise announced by judge Luke Bryan, all the country music singers moved to the next round.  “Oh my gosh our whole entire line made it through,” Mascitti said. “I can’t even believe it. Trickery, Luke Bryan, trickery.”
