Million Viewers Show Up for 'American Idol' Reboot Premiere



One noticeable thing about the show is that the auditions have taken place in Nashville, Orlando, New York, but a majority of the contestants have come from red states like Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. Some of the standouts include Catie Turner, Run Bultongez, Maddie Poppe, Harper Grace, Alyssa Raghu and Dennis Lorenzo. She performed her own song titled "21st Century Machine", which received a compliment from Richie.

Seems like only yesterday when the curtain came down on "Idol" after Fox decided it wanted to take a break from the show, but ABC chose to revive the show and introduced a new panel of judges that featured Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryant to spruce things up, CNN reported. "I'm just fascinated with your brain". Each judge recommended that she stay committed to the Great White Way rather than a recording contract. Given a second shot, Benjamin once again leaned forward to give Katy another peck on the cheek, but the 33-year-old turned her head at the last minute - meaning his smooch landed on her mouth. Did Alyssa's handsome voice stand out to you? Lionel, Katy and Luke did you hear what the home audience heard? hearing? I'm really excited by her potential on this show, and I can see her doing well.

Zachary, a 16-year-old high school student from Wesley Chapel, FL, walked into the audition with a high speaking voice. "Unique" was the praise for Zach, along with "killed it" from Lionel Richie, along with a golden ticket for the teen.

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.

"I have a terrible feeling that could be a hit", he said, walking away.

Noah Davis brought his love of alpacas and his wig-based lexicon to his audition.

But her second song was the selling point.

Performing in front of Lionel Richie, meant Julica was performing in front of one of her idols. "I know it wasn't an overnight success for me; it's not going to be for them", she said.
