The competition heated up on “American Idol” Wednesday night as the sudden death rounds began in Las Vegas. Ten contestants took the stage, but only five made it through to the upcoming Hollywood sing-off.
Judge Mariah Carey told “Extra's" Terri Seymour, “I hated having to let certain people go. It’s so hard.”
Jackson explained, “What it means is that 10 people sing and five people have to go that night.” Carey added, “What they're up against is incredibly difficult, and I don't envy them because I like had to learn how to perform on TV, you know, on ‘Arsenio Hall.’”
Cannon said, “We do something big every year, I'm plotting and planning right now.”
