Idol Top 12 Guys Recap: All They Wanna Do Is Zooma Zoom Zoom Zoom

25 February 2015 6:21 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

We're in Detroit for this round. That's fun. And you can tell when this was shot based on Ryan Seacrest's beard compared to where it was on Oscars night. Or... Not. Singer: Adam Ezigalian Song: "I Wanna Rock" My Take: Wow. This episode is way too tightly cut. With almost no preamble, »
