'American Idol' Season 18: Katy Perry says Margie and boyfriend Jonny must find individuality and fans agree
There were panic and nerves going around everywhere tonight in 'American Idol'. In the Hollywood week, the judges decided to change things for the first time this season. Unlike the usual group-round, the judges introduced duets. If the contestants weren't already nervous, well, it hit them now. Some of the pairs made it through to the next round, while some didn't. The judges also got to decide if they wanted to save only one of the contestants and eliminate the other.
With the panic of performing a duet in front of the judges going around, it was Margie Mays and her boyfriend Jonny West's turn to perform. Ahead of their performance, Jonny starts feeling the pressure and starts to panic. Margie stood by him, but sadly his nerves were still evident while performing their rendition of, Meghan Trainor's 'Like I'm Gonna Lose You'.
After their performance, Katy advised the couple to give each other some space and focus on securing their dreams right now. Katy added that the duo is barely passing through to the next round, but they made it.

Taking to Twitter after their performance, fans agreed with what Katy shared and affirmed that Margie and Jonny need to find themselves as individual artists first. "#AmericanIdol I agree with Katy. Jonny and Margie need to realize that they cannot stay together through every step of the competition. One is going to go farther than the other," a fan wrote.
"I completely agree. They need to find themselves as individual artists. Margie definitely overpowered him. #AmericanIdol," a fan said. Adding to that another shared, "@katyperry was spot on - they need to separate a bit - I think Margie needs to give Jonny some much-needed space."
"Love her tonality in her voice but I feel nothing as far as feeling the song. I really like him he should feel more confident and I know you love her but you have to shine for yourself," a fan said.
