Idol: Hollywood Round 4

It’s getting REAL on American Idol.  This is the time when we’re not necessarily weeding out the contestants that are wasting our time, but we’re really having to say goodby to contestants that have some real talent. 

In a heart-wrenching moment, Jennifer Lopez had to deliver the news to Chris Medina that he did not make the Top 24.  (Chris’s fiancee Juliana suffered brain damage in 2009 and he’s been taking care of her ever since.)

We don’t know the fate of our “hometown hero” Tim Halperin.  (Ok, so technically he’s from Nebraska, but he’s claiming Fort Worth, Texas because he went to TCU.   I call him “hometown” because he’s also performed in the Candy 95 studios a number of time…So he’s ours!)  We’ll find out tonight (2/24) if Tim made it to the Top 24.  With a performance like this…how can they say no?

Just for fun…in case you aren’t familiar with Tim Halperin yet, here’s his video for his original song, “She Runs.”
