"That was the sweetest performance of "Rainbow" #MakalylaBrownlee". However, as the song's lyrics say, "It'll all be alright".

The next artist is Just Sam, who has a sore throat going into her solo performance.

But as the band began to play the opening chords to the song, the contestant's anxiety levels visibly started to rise, and she soon rushed off the stage. She introduced Perry to her toes and exceeded her efficiency within the duets.

As EMTs were called to the scene, Bryan attempted to see if Brownlee was okay, to which a nervous Perry plead, "Give her a little space". "She's embarrassed, but physically, she's 100% all right", her dad reassured. "This opportunity is so important for her". Next, Perrin York sings "Good As Hell" by Lizzo, and even gets Katy to sing along, although she's a bit overpowered by the band onstage. Backstage, Brownlee collapsed and had a seizure as medical workers and the judges ran to her aid.

"In seventh grade, I was diagnosed with vasovagal syncope". As it turns out, she suffers from a heart condition that causes her to react to stress in a way that could cause a seizure.

Margie Mays and Jonny West, who are also real-life lovers, as well as competing together on American Idol, weren't impressed with their performance in yesterday's episode.

Clearly moved by the incident, Perry took to Twitter during the broadcast to share some words of encouragement with Brownlee. "I'm excited and nervous for this performance".

The state also desperately needs ventilators, to help people breathe after their lungs have been compromised by COVID-19. The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in MI have continued to rise, jumping from 549 on Friday to 1,328 by Monday.

Though she confessed there is "nothing she can do to prevent a seizure", Brownlee revealed that the competition has been trying. Right now I'm just trying to stay calm.

Whitney Houston's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" proved to be a victor for 27-year-old Geena and 17-year-olds Cyniah Elise and Olivia Ximines, but Yzthasinger, 19, couldn't compare and didn't make the cut.

A few hours later, Brownlee returned to the stage to a standing ovation and sang her heart out - a performance that brought Perry to tears.

Perspective did indeed help the judges in this particular case, who sent Brownlee through to the next phase of the competition, which will be held in Hawaii. "Spiritual cowboy" Dillon James performed an Americana-inflected original, and contestant Lauren Spencer-Smith delivered a performance of Brandi Carlile's "The Joke".

The next singer is Jovin Webb, and he brings the crowd to their feet with an upbeat rendition of Chris Stapleton's "Parachute". Brownlee moved to the top 40. Zack Dobbins, the West Virginia native who turned heads earlier in March when he drove his muddy 1993 Ford F-150 to his audition, was eliminated on Sunday night (March 22) after the duets round of Hollywood Week.

During the "Hollywood Week" episode, the 17-year-old singer walked on stage to sing Kacey Musgraves" "Rainbow' for judges Perry, 35, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

This has been a particularly stressful week for "American Idol" all around as Fox News learned that production on the current season is "currently suspended" amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
