The first group to take the stage calls themselves 3 More Days, and id made up of Sarina Joi Crowe, David Oliver Willis, and Tony Foster Jr. Ironically all three of the singers have already been to Group Day during previous auditions of American Idol.

The American Idol judges have decided to eliminate Tony Foster Jr. David Oliver Willis and Sarina Joi Crowe are moving on to the next round of American Idol.

The next group to take the stage, made up of Casey Thrasher, Dexter Roberts, and Ben Briley, they are singing an interesting country rendition of an old Backstreet Boys song.

The next group that takes the stage is made up of Spencer Lloyd, Megan Miller, and Alyssa Siebken. Spencer already knew the song, so he didn’t really want to rehearse with the girls the night before, and it shows. They bombed their Group Day performance. Spencer and Megan are safe, and they are moving on to the next round of American Idol. Alyssa Siebken is going home.

The next group to take the American Idol stage is made up of Caleb Johnson, Tyler Ahlgren, Matthew Hamel, and CJ Harris. The judges think that Caleb owned the performance, but it wasn’t CJ’s best performance. Tyler and Matthew are going home, CJ and Caleb are moving on to the next round of American Idol.

The next group that takes the stage on Group Day is made up of Jena Asciutto, Sikenya Thompson, Allie Odom Sikenya Thompson caught the flu the night before, and decided to perform during Group Day anyways. Despite her sickness Sikenya has made it to the next round of American Idol. Allie Odom has been eliminated though.

The next group to take the stage decides to sing “Single Ladies” by Beyonce.

Nica, Cara, and Jessica are moving on to the next round of American Idol. Stephanie Hanvey has been eliminated from American Idol.

The next group to take the stage is Terrica Curry, Carmen Delgina, Emmanuel Zidor, singing a bizarre rendition of Destiny’s Child’s “Say My Name.” The judges aren’t too impressed.

The final Group Day performance takes the stage. Christina Collins, Olivia Diamond, Queen Bulls, and Malaya Watson wait for the judges’ decision. Harry, Keith, and Jennifer decide to put all four of them through to the next round of American Idol.
