American Idol: Rivalry between Jordan Dorsey and his old group

[[American Idol (2011 Series)|American Idol]] contestant Jordan Dorsey angered his first group when he abandoned them to join Robbie Rosen’s group at Hollywood Week.

His old group, Four Forty (pitcured above), are hoping that Jordan will fail in his new five-piece 4 Plus 1, and they’re planning to show him why his defection was a bad move by outperforming him. Though Lauren Turner seems emotional after a late night of rehearsing, she doesn’t seem to have that much confidence for their routine.

4 Plus 1 go first, and do a version of I Want You Back by The Jackson Five. It’s a little bit spotty in places, especially the earlier harmonies, but Jordan and Robbie stand out with their vocal performances. Jennifer Lopez says:

Okay guys, that was good. We were really happy with that. I mean, the choreography, you guys did some harmonies, everybody came up. On that note – I’ll make this short and sweet – all you guys are going through to the next round.

Jordan continues his cocky routine outside the venue where he declares that joining 4 Plus 1 was the right move for him. Not sure I like his attitude all that much though.

Four Forty follow next with a version of Cee Lo Green’s Forget You. Adrian Michael starts things off beautifully though he’s got a lower voice than Cee Lo, and when Lauren Turner takes over vocal duties, some of the audience are up on their feet.

For the first time, Jennifer Lopez plays with the group members by slowly calling them all forward – and then telling them that they’re through to the next level. So both groups progress to the next level – it’s amazing what a bit of healthy competition will do for you!
