After a scary start to Hollywood week with Symone Black fainting right off the American Idol stage, we finally learn what happened next. 

As Symone passed out on the floor of the theater, medics and producers ran over to help. Luckily, Symone was fine and just didn't eat enough that day. Nerves can do that to you! And she was lucky enough to make it to the next round, too. So after being check out at the hospital, Symone will be back!

For all the singers that made it through, it is only just beginning. And the next day is all about groups and we all know that is where all the drama happens. But first everyone needs to find a group combining contestants from group one and group two, which isn't easy. 

Amy Brumfield is sick and no one wants to be in a group with her. As more contestants struggle to get enough people in their groups, others are missing out on proper rehearsal time. Poor Amy feels like she is going to pass out and still doesn't have a group. How many people are going to faint in this season?


As the night goes on and people get their groups together, a long night lies ahead to get prepped for their big performance. But still more groups need to be completed. Richie Law still can't find a group either. This is so stressful. But finally he finds Phillip Phillips and his group with Heejun Han and J. Ron Jackson. But Poor Amy is still out of luck. Luckily, Amy finally finds a group of her own with Alisha Burnhart. We just hope Amy doesn't faint. As they try to recruit two others to join their team, Alisha doesn't like their song choice and storms off. She is so all about singing "Joy to the World." She really needed to let it go. And after this cop interrogates another group, she finally finds one to join.

Now the all-night rehearsing begins of singing and choreographing begins. Group night is really just for the drama, since this a solo performance competition. But Idol loves their drama.

Brielle Hunter is back from last season after performing in a group with Pia Toscano. But she is just too bossy and acting like a know-it-all. Well she didn't make it last year and this bossiness is really turning off her group.

Symone returns from the hospital suffering from dehydration. But luckily she is feeling better, but now the hard task is finding a group. And she lucks out with a great one. But does she have the stamina to make it through the night?


Amy Brumfield's group is doing well together, but she is still so sick, so this is a worrisome problem from the group. And it looks like Amy's flu is spreading around to others, too. This might not end well.  Even Philip isn't feeling good and he has four kidney surgeries in the past few months. What is going on this year?

And sadly, Philip's group isn't doing too well in rehearsal either. Richie is acting very cocky and like a know-it-all. He thinks he knows everything about the moves and melodies, and they are just not getting along. Heejun just keeps calling him cowboy and he just doesn't like him. Heenjun, "The war is on with cowboys." Oh boy.

Heejun just keeps it going, "Phillip had a kidney stone and Cowboy had a brain stone. I don't know what's wrong with him." This guy is on a roll. "He has a four different harmonies. Four different dance moves. My friends are going laugh at me because of this cowboy kid." But will any members of this group make it through?

Brianna Bell returns from bed and realizes they need to rehearse even if the rest are sleeping. Will they make it through without enough rehearsal with everyone?

After basically no sleep, morning has arrived. And the group performances are about to begin. How will they do?
