For Lionel Richie, The 'Idol' Excitement Is Genuine

The grand return of American Idol started off on rough footing for several reasons. I've been a fan of American Idol since season one and I'm ready!

The words were accompanied by video of Underwood on the show and a shot of the "home of Carrie Underwood" road sign near Checotah. It will be interesting to see if American Idol can regain the stature it once had in its early years.

South Jersey's Mara Justine, an Idol veteran who reached the finals in 2014, will appear in Monday's auditions episode.

Harper Grace has the unfortunate distinction of being listed as the worst singer of the national anthem under major search engines, but the Texas native was determined to impress in another way with this audition. He found a job, met the love of his life, and has turned his life into something that is positive and inspiring ... and that is even before hitting the stage in order to audition for the show. I think you're really sweet, but truthfully, there are just some people that are outsinging you right now.

So, judge Katy Perry invited the teen over to the desk and urged him to plant a kiss on her cheek.

Next up is a man who escaped from the Congo with his family when he was only 10 years old. We'll be back tomorrow night with more auditions. "Nobody's gonna want to make out with me".

"I've never been in a relationship", he told the trio of judges. A rather unassuming figure in jeans and t-shirt, he had a chill manner to match, but he quickly won over judge Luke Bryan.and judges Katy Perry and Lionel Richie to follow.

Wow, after saying no and after the commercial, they bring Ron back!

Maddie Poppe, 19, Clarksville, IA. She gets the first golden ticket to Hollywood!

Koby is 26 years old from Denver, Colorado, and is a theater performer. What unbridled enthusiasm! She also has some serious pipes on her for just 15. Is she worth this much coin? Perry said his presentation felt a bit "rushed", and added "maybe that's because I sped up your BPM". The woman embarrasses herself all the way out the door.

Performing in front of Lionel Richie, meant Julica was performing in front of one of her idols.

Man tries to stop hit and run with a sledgehammer
Police confirmed Sunday afternoon that there was a hit-and run crash on Northeast 36th Street and Biscayne Boulevard in Miami . He attempts to flee the scene of the crash several times but each attempt is blocked by witnesses in the area. "(Don't move!").

But this time, Julica had her biggest supporter with her, her 2-year-old daughter Mikova. She's straight-up country should've sang something country. Lionel Richie approved her as fit for Hollywood because "you're strong", he asserted. Then ask yourself: Who replaced Paula Abdul as a judge in Season 10? "I'm an excited, happy, fired-up yes". I like Lionel as a judge so far.

Zach D'Onofiro gets three yeses and he's going to Hollywood. The trio listened to various hopefuls auditioning before it was cashier Benjamin Glaze's turn to try his luck. Katie tells him he's being outsung right now.

"Have you kissed a girl and liked it?"

Noah Davis, 18, Royal, Arkansas. He sings Stay by Rhianna on the piano. He strums his battered guitar and sings a star-making rendition of "Unaware" by Allen Stone. Such a nice kid. Her voice is fantastic.

As much as Katy seems close to letting loose into some contestants who don't belong on the show, she's frequently holding back. Of course, she gets a ticket.

American Idol is an American singing competition television series created by Simon Fuller. What competition did he win? All three judges are up dancing with her.

ABC's "American Idol" premiere drew plenty of eyeballs Sunday, even as Fox - where "Idol" used to air - ran programming that was seen by many observers as a direct attempt to dampen enthusiasm for ABC's reboot. He's been made fun of for his high-pitched voice.

A quick trip back to NY, and it's a "yes" for 16-year-old Zach Denofrio, who has a high-pitched speaking voice but turns into a Frank Sinatra -type crooner when he sings. Wait, what?! His voice completely changed to a lower register.

"It's a language that sometimes the kids and I speak".

"I am so happy you cut off that song when you did", Richie said to Perry. Sussett got a golden ticket.
