Hollywood Round[]

Madaí was shown at Idol Arena, singing "Tattooed Heart" by Ariana Grande. Partway through her performance the first time, she requested the pianist restart. After a second time, Madaí was still dissatisfied, prompting her to attempt the song a cappella. The American Idol staff decided to give her a second chance. She sang "Tattooed Heart" once more, but with instrument accompaniment. She concluded the song with a strange faux accent. She was subsequently put in the same group as Camila Galavis, Meggie Iyer, Athena Jett, Isabella Mercier, Aniston Pate, Bethany Teague, and Spencer Wells, where the judges told them that they were eliminated.
