Hollywood Round[]

Matt was shown in the second part of Hollywood Week in a group with Jesse Langseth singing "Some Kind of Wonderful" by Soul Brothers Six. After his final performance in front of the judges, he was placed in a holding room with Nick Mitchell, Ann Marie Boskovich, Ju'Not Joyner, Tatiana Del Toro, Kris Allen, Cody Sheldon, Felicia Barton, and T.K. Hash. The judges then revealed that everyone in the group had advanced. The judges were unsure of him, so they asked to have a sing-off between him and Michael Sarver to determine who would make the Top 36. Afterwards, the judges decided that both of them would advance.
