Is American Idol making its grand return on TV?

NEW YORK. This image released by ABC shows from left Lionel Richie Katy Perry Ryan Seacrest and Luke Bryan on the set

With all of the success of NBC's "The Voice" overshadowing it's older, trailblazing singing-competition show, the student became the master.

The worst contestant of the episode, 26-year-old Moscow-native Sardor Milano, claims he was the 2015 victor of X Factor: Russia . The charismatic 17 year old skips school to audition in NY with a cutesy original folk-pop tune called "21st Century Machine". She performed her own song titled "21st Century Machine", which received a compliment from Richie.

Katy Perry floored an American Idol contestant on Sunday night (11Mar18) when she planted a kiss on his lips. She was entertaining, but she also had a strong voice.

Yet, this is a man who is a real comeback story! Or, if you're Katy Perry, a boyfriend. We'll be back tomorrow night with more auditions.

Ron, a 21-year-old entrepreneur originally from Congo who now resides in Plano, TX, sang "Let It Go" by James Bay. And I couldn't really tell that was a song. "I think that getting my original music out there, because I am a singer song writer, I play guitar and multiple instruments", she says. The judges seem uncertain.

The findings are welcome news for the drug's manufacturers, as the high list price has proven unpalatable to insurance companies. Results were presented at the American College of Cardiology's 67th Annual Scientific Session in Orlando.

ABC launched its reboot of the reality series, this time around with celebrity judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Katy dubs him the best male singer they've seen so far, and Brandon is going onto Hollywood.

Grace Walker, a 15-year-old hostess from San Juan Capistrano, CA; Sardor Milano, a 26-year-old supermarket employee from Orlando, FL; and Nico Bones, a 22-year-old skate-shop employee from Long Beach, CA, did not receive golden tickets to Hollywood. She starts belting it out and it's a bit too theatrical, screamy, over-the-top. She just did a bunch of runs and screaming. Is she worth this much coin?

"Benjamin. I really enjoyed meeting you today", Perry said. The woman embarrasses herself all the way out the door.

Noah Davis brought his love of alpacas and his wig-based lexicon to his audition. She sings "Young, Dumb, and Broke", as well and it sounds great as a country vibe. She is one to root for, and one hopes that Hollywood doesn't eat her alive. 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. When it was Layla's solo turn, she sang "Who's Loving You" (Jackson Five version). I love how Lionel imparts wisdom on her to make sure that she's going into the fire and can handle it.
