American Idol producers have switched things up a bit for the second episode of Hollywood Week.
While the second round of Hollywood Week usually consists of group performances, this season, the contestants were asked to select a partner to perform a duet.
Country sweethearts Grace Leer and Hannah Prestridge joined forces to sing a sassy rendition of Miranda Lambert’s award-winning song “Mama’s Broken Heart.”
Prestridge, unfortunately, didn’t make it to the next round, but Leer impressed the judges so much that she advanced to the next round.
“Grace we’re so proud and you are going through to the next round,” Luke Bryan gushed to Leer.
“Hannah, you have grown and we’ve seen you fight, but unfortunately you are not going through to the next round.” Bryan explained.
“Don’t give up on your dreams Hannah,” Katy Perry told Prestridge as she exited the stage.
“Oh, I won’t, I’ll be back next year,” Prestridge quickly replied.
“Looking forward to seeing you next year, @_TrebleSoul. Don’t give up on your dreams,” Bryan tweeted during the show.
Bryan also shared a sweet message for Leer via Twitter during the show writing, “We’re proud of you @GraceLeermusic, keep pushing yourself.”
Grace Leer really caught the attention of the judges during her audition with an impressive cover of Patsy Cline’s “Crazy.”
The next episode of American Idol airs Monday (March 23) at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
