This "American Idol" contestant's first kiss was with judge Katy Perry


Even though the original series had made a good run on FOX since it debuted in 2003, and gave the spotlight to celebrities like Tori Kelly, Carrie Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia, and Jordin Sparks, Perry said that lots of wonderful singers out there could still use a platform such as American Idol. "We're not really sure where you fit in the mainstream.' And, I guess my response to that is, I really never have fit in the mainstream, it's really not where I plan to go with my music". He has an emotional backstory, but fails to immediately wow Perry and Richie with his rendition of James Bay's "Let It Go".

This time, the show is on ABC instead of Fox, and there's a brand new trio of judges: Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryant.

American Idol opened with 10.3 million viewers and a 2.3 rating in adults 18-49 from 8-10 PM. "I can't take it down, dumba****", she said while walking out of the audition. She's obviously got a nice voice and her hyper personality won't be forgotten anytime soon. In the words of Perry: "Wig: snatched!"

Layla Spring brought out her little sister, Dixie, to sing a song together before her own audition. Now, that's the kind of country song that I could hear on the radio. She was dead on with her original song, "Yard Sale", which impressed all the panel, particularly Katy, with its distinctive attention to detail. It's crafted perfectly for this genre. "I wanted her to see the good in it and hopefully she can pick up some of that too, along the way".

Sunday night's "Idol" broadcast delivered ABC's biggest premiere ratings in the time slot since the supernatural drama "Resurrection" bowed to 13.9 million viewers and a 3.8 in the demo back in March 2014. I can understand why any of the singers I mentioned above would be someone's favorite because I'm looking forward to seeing what they do next as well.

Wintry conditions set to return by the weekend
Forecasters say a build up of pressure over Scandinavia will bring a chilly blast of easterly winds to the region this weekend. This week, low pressure will be in control of the weather bringing in heavy rain, marking a miserable week of wet weather.

Some American Idol spoiler lists originally included Lane Hardy in the Top 24, but not Dominique Posey.

The 19-year-old shared a special moment with judge Katy Perry after his confession that he had never been kissed. But Richie said that Seacrest is still the anchor that holds the show together. Many former "Idol" stars now appear on "The Voice", which emphasizes the celebrity judges while "Idol" still focuses on unknown talent. Sardor shrieks his way through Luke James' "I Want You" with such conviction that surely Klaus Nomi's wig levitated from the grave.

Alyssa made all of the hairs on Katy's body stand up, making the pop icon "a believer". Who else are you looking forward to seeing in future rounds?

"We really just don't know where you fit in the music industry".

The show is on Sundays and Mondays from 7-9pm.
