American Idol: Kevin Campos sleeps in on Hollywood Week; Jovany Barreto and Karen Rodriguez progress

Kevin Campos holds up the Hollywood Week auditions when he sleeps in for his group [[American Idol (2011 Series)|American Idol]] audition. His group, Spanglish, have to go looking for him in the hotel.

Luckily, Steven Tyler is the consumate pro and entertains the waiting audience with a loose jam on the drums. Before he became the frontman for Aerosmith, Tyler was actually a drummer, fact fans. He wasn’t just pounding on some drums there – he knows what he’s doing.

Spanglish eventually show up on stage and give a fantastically rich vocal performance. They sing Bruno Mars’ Just The Way You Are (Amazing). Three of the singers give a good performance – Jovany Barreto, Karen Rodriguez and sleepyhead Kevin Campos. But Jorge Gabriel is off key for much of his lead vocals. Giving his comments, Steven Tyler said:

Jorge, you didn’t nail it today. And you’ve been one of my favourites. Karen, it was good. It was good. Jovany, a little rough in the beginning.

Notice that Kevin Campos didn’t even get addressed with a comment – it may be one thing to forget your words, but clearly forgetting to set your alarm clock will get you booted out of American Idol as well. Uh-oh. Jorge and Kevin get sent home while Jovany and Karen progress to the next round.
