Katy Perry Shocks 'American Idol' Contestant with First Kiss

Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan opened up about the reality TV competition and said that it will be different from the original Fox show.

Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap.

In addition to American Idol showing a montage of hopefuls getting cut, five contestants were each shown giving a full audition and then being rejected by the panel, who attempted to be candid but also respectful in the way they handled the bad news. Glaze nervously agreed, and when he leaned in for a second cheek-kiss, Perry turned her face so their lips connected, which surprised Glaze so much he fell backward. The current season of NBC's The Voice, featuring first Idol victor Kelly Clarkson as mentor, drew a 2.8 in 18-49 and 12.3 million viewers (L+SD) in its debut a couple of weeks ago. The judges never put down people who came down to auditions. But it wasn't enough to send him to Hollywood. And now, with their golden tickets in hand, both Turner and Lorenzo are headed to Hollywood!

"I've known Ryan now for nearly 16 years". "I will never forget Luke Bryan said to me, 'You are the reason why I am doing this".

An audition for American Idol is one thing, but getting your first kiss from Katy Perry already makes you a victor . Koby already had been cast on the Broadway stage and thought she was a shoo-in for this competition.

Thaddeus Johnson, from Oklahoma City, OK: He made it to Hollywood during Season 9 in 2010, but didn't go any further. But Alyssa proved what I've said countless times - it doesn't matter how old you are because talent is talent. But she redeems herself in front of the judges, singing an original country song she wrote. The Florida teen's unexpected take on Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight" is so extraordinary that it motivates Katy to her feet and into Zack's arms for a dance. "I know it wasn't an overnight success for me; it's not going to be for them", she said. Just don't forget to cancel your trial if you don't want to get charged $20. "There's no dismissing and just sending off and saying, 'You suck.' That's not how we roll".

Zachary, a 16-year-old high school student from Wesley Chapel, FL, walked into the audition with a high speaking voice.

Dennis, a 26-year-old singer from Philadelphia, PA, performed "Unaware" by Allen Stone.
