The Hollywood rounds were held at the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles. The first round consisted of solo performances with each contestant choosing a song out of the twelve available. 99 contestants made it to the next round for the group performances. Those who did not impress the judges were cut, and the remaining then performed a solo a cappella. After this round, the contestants were separated into 4 groups, and 3 groups went though with 44 contestants chosen. In the Pasadena Civic Center, each were individually taken via elevator to the judges where the verdict if they would be chosen or not was announced. 20 were cut and the final 24, 12 men and 12 woman, selected.
