More than 200 "Idol" hopefuls are heading to L.A. from across the country; this year, more hopefuls made it to "Hollywood Week" than in previous years, since the age limit has been lowered to 15. They'll be staying at a hotel in Pasadena, and will compete at a nearby auditorium.

During "Hollywood Week"--which actually lasts closer to two weeks--the hopefuls will compete to snag a spot in the much smaller group who make it to the actual TV show.
