American Idol review: Can it rise from the ashes?

American Idol review: Can it rise from the ashes?

"You are unique. You killed it", said Lionel. But it felt like the same show. Later, in Los Angeles, Nico gives a awful, but un-self-conscious, plugged-in performance of nursery rhyme "Nobody Likes Me (Guess I'll Go Eat Worms)". 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.

The crop of talent was better than that of The Voice and The X-Factor and the format, with intimate auditions set in across the USA, allowed for the contestants' real, observable growth. And there's also Christina Jones, an 18-year-old who should be commended for her audition. Catie is the first up.

When he entered the room, Luke Bryan instantly said that Trevor was a "dreamboat" and Katy added that her eyes lit up. That was a B+ audition. They all got golden tickets.

Ron Bultongex, 21, Plano, Texas.

Ron, a 21-year-old entrepreneur originally from Congo who now resides in Plano, TX, sang "Let It Go" by James Bay. He came with a story as a Congo refugee.

The new American Idol panel isn't hopeless and the reboot series isn't doomed to fail with them leading the charge. I remind myself and I'm reminded and I'm inspired by all of their stories. That was another B+ audition. Sussett got a golden ticket. They decide to give him his ticket to Hollywood. You heard it here first.

Maddie Poppe, 19, Clarksville, Iowa sings with "The Rainbow Connection", and she has a great voice. A girl with a guitar, much like Caite, but probably a better voice. With a chip on her shoulder, she stormed out of the room and told the cameras that she sang her heart out, that the judges were wrong and that Katy Perry was probably just "jealous".

Bucks hand Grizzlies 18th consecutive loss
In four seasons with the team, he averaged 17.0 points and 5.7 assists while shooting at a 35 percent mark from distance. Dillon Brooks led the team with 17 points, JaMychal Green added 14 points while Ben McLemore chipped in with 10 points.

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

Koby, 26, Denver, CO.

"I'm sorry, I'm really good".

The worst contestant of the episode, 26-year-old Moscow-native Sardor Milano, claims he was the 2015 victor of X Factor: Russia . This was not a good audition. What unbridled enthusiasm! She also has some serious pipes on her for just 15.

"Come here, babe", Perry said. And this girl argues. He got three yes votes. When Harper was 11, she became an Internet laughingstock for singing what was considered the "worst national anthem ever". And not just for her killer voice - but because she sings her heart out while still wearing the rubber bands on her braces. "I think you were a bit rushed and maybe that was because I sped up your BPM (beats per minute) of the heartbeat". She is one to root for, and one hopes that Hollywood doesn't eat her alive.

Layla Spring 16, Marion County, KY.

Julica writes a lot of her own music and you can find it by searching for her on Youtube. "I've got two children that they put me with".
