Pia Toscano, Alessandra Guercio and Brielle Von Hugel impress the American Idol judges

New York trio Pia Toscano, Alessandra Guercio and Brielle Von Hugel blew the [[American Idol (2011 Series)|American Idol]] judges away with their Hollywood Week rendition of Bruno Mars’ Grenade. The three girls – who up until now haven’t been heavily featured on the show – gave a sassy performance with good choreography and fantastic vocal harmonies, earning great comments from Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler.

Shockingly, two of the members of the group are only teenagers, but their confidence and vocal ability was impressive! Unusually for an entire group, all three are sent through to the next stage!

What the judges said:

  • Steven Tyler: Tight group, man. I’m really happy I got this one. You guys slammed it. I loved it.
  • Randy Jackson: Well done on a group job, very well done. Nice harmonies, yo.
