American Idol 2018 Premiere Recap: Watch Audition Videos & Highlights

Lionel Richie approved her as fit for Hollywood because "you're strong", he asserted.

It's the same feedback she got almost 10 years ago, when she made it to Hollywood on the show. And celebrity judge Katy Perry has found herself in an ongoing property dispute with a group of aging Los Angeles nuns who for some time now have waged a legal battle with the pop star over her purchase of their former convent. She performed "Young, Dumb and Broke" by Khalid, and Lionel loved the quality of her voice. The judges are all smitten with Catie, with Lionel referring to her as a wonderful Martian.

Koby already had been cast on the Broadway stage and thought she was a shoo-in for this competition. But it wasn't enough to send him to Hollywood.

Julica writes a lot of her own music and you can find it by searching for her on Youtube. So far they all all seem to be playing nice with each other, so if you're looking for any hint of cracks in Idol's fairly squeaky clean facade, you'll just have to wait and see how headlines involving Seacrest and Perry's respective scandals and controversies pan out in the days to come.

Harper, a 16-year-old high school student from McKinney, TX, sang an original song, and the judges agreed her lyrics were "fabulous".

Row erupts over new Frida Kahlo Barbie
Mattel says it received the rights to produce the doll with the Frida Kahlo Corporation , which was founded in Panama in 2005. But the latter has violated their contract by failing to inform Kahlo's relatives about the uses of her image, he told AFP.

An audition for American Idol is one thing, but getting your first kiss from Katy Perry already makes you a victor.

While the show had seen its share of judges from the original panel of Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Simon Cowell to newcomers like Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez, it's safe to say it also had its share of comical moments. Later, 26-year-old Dennis Lorenzo (who sang Allen Stone's "Unaware") explained after his father's murder, he made some poor life decisions as a teenager - until his grandparents gave him a guitar.

Aside from the new set of judges, American Idol is pretty much the same. So, I don't think it'd be fair to put you in that kind of competition. "You're Top 10", the "Roar" singer tells the 15 year old hopeful.

Katy recently suffered an embarrassing mishap when she forgot the name of her old school friend while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
