Did Bay Area singers survive Hollywood cut?
“American Idol” has moved into that scary phase known as Hollywood Week.

Brutal cuts are about to be made and nerves are going to be frayed. The good news for Bay Area contestants Grace Leer, Francisco Martin and Demi Rae is that they all lived to sing another day. But there are two more brutal rounds to go before they can make it further.
