Theater Round[edit]


The first day of Theater Week featured the eighty-nine contestants from the auditions round. Divided into groups, each contestant should go on stage and sing a song a capella for the judges until they stopped them. Seventy contestants advanced.


The next round required the contestants to split up in pairs and perform. Forty-five advanced to the final round of Theater requiring a solo performance.


Forty-five made it to the final round, which required the contestants singing solo with the option of playing an instrument. In the end, the judges take the contestants in groups of five and tell them if they made the final thirty.


The thirty semifinalists were randomly split into different groups. Each contestant would then sing in their respective group's night. There were three separate groups and the top three contestants from each group made it to the finals.

Wild Card[edit]

Six contestants who failed to make it to the finals were invited back to perform for another chance at a spot in the finals. Only one wildcard contestant (Nanda Garcia) was chosen by the public vote.
