Gurpreet was shown in a montage of contestants who survived the first round of Hollywood Week. He was later shown in a group called "B-Side" with Peter Garrett & Chris Watson singing "Payphone" by Maroon 5, ft. Wiz Khalifa. Despite a disastrous performance, everyone in the group advanced. For his final solo performance, Gurpreet sang "Georgia on My Mind" by Ray Charles. He advanced along with Devin Velez, Cortez Shaw, Devan Jones and Adam Sanders. He eventually did enough to make the Top 20 Guys.
