On last night’s American Idol, Charleston soul singer Elise Testone made it out of Hollywood Week group week — not that that surprised anybody that has ever heard of Elise. (Or for that matter, anyone who has been keeping up with the claims of American Idol spoiler sites. According to AmericanIdolnet.com, Testone makes the final 24, as one of the final 12 female singers.)

Unfortunately, Testone’s group week performance was not on the show. Last week, the Holy City singer was only featured for a brief second or two. Here’s hoping we see more singing from Testone tonight as she advances to the latest round in Las Vegas.

Here’s Testone’s brief appearance during last week’s Hollywood Week episodes:
