What happened in Vegas? American Idol revealed its top 40 contestants. It was a tough night as the 70 remaining singers were asked to perform tunes from the '50s or '60s in groups. "It isn't just about the vigorous vocal rehearsals," Ryan Seacrest said. Contestants had to put together a "complete performance package," including choreography and costumes before taking the stage in front of the judges. Some sailed through as a group, like youngsters David Leathers, Jr., Jeremy Rosado, Ariel Sprague and Gabi Carrubba, who sang "Rocking Robin" in a "job well done," according to Randy Jackson.

Last night, we saw American Idol hopefuls sing in groups and by themselves and then learn their respective fates in those garish, chairless rooms.
Over the next two hours, the 69 remaining contestants will travel to Las Vegas to perform on the Viva Elvis stage in their last bid to make it to the Top 40. What happens in Vegas tonight isn't staying in Vegas. Some contestants will return to La while some will be going home.
Ryan's voiceover promises that tonight will be full of drama and surprises. I mean, it is Vegas after all, and anything can happen.
Prior to leaving La, contestants formed groups of 3 to 4 for their Vegas performances and were assigned a song from the 50s or 60s. Upon arriving in Las Vegas, they immediately got to work rehearsing with one of the American Idol vocal coaches. All contestants will face the possibility of elimination immediately upon the end of their performance. »

As Hollywood Week drags on for what seems like its fifth week, the "American Idol" hopefuls are put through another group performance. Except they get more time and professional-looking costumes and lighting, so it's not quite as fun as the crazy Group Night.
We kick things off on the bus that hauls the Idols to Las Vegas, for reasons kind of passing understanding. Why move venues? Why not keep them in the same building they've been living in for all of Hollywood Week and just completely Stockholm Syndrome them?
The judges tell the 70 kids left that they are going to sing music from the 1950s1960s, which will definitely prepare them for on the live shows when they get criticized for being current or not knowing who they are as an artist. *eye roll*
Now, I'm criticizing music from this era. I love the 50s/60s. Love. But ... c'mon. We all know how "Idol" is. »
With 70 contestants still standing, “American Idol” kicked it old school in Las Vegas with songs from the 50s and 60s. Singers performed in groups of three and four and each team was styled and costumed for the first time. And unlike pretty much every episode so far this season, nobody fainted, fell off the stage, or got rushed to the hospital. But there was drama, and there were, of course tears.
That’s because what happens in Vegas doesn’t stay… »
