American Idol 2018 Premiere Recap: Watch Audition Videos & Highlights

ABC's revival of American Idol is proving to be a victor in TV ratings.

Now, the groundbreaking series returns and premiered Sunday on ABC.

Andrew Weaver is the next contestant, with a gorgeous performance of "Thinking Out Loud" by Ed Sheeran, while 15-year-old Griffin Tucker plays piano and sings "Lady Madonna" by The Beatles.

The reboot's early episodes include pre-taped auditions held in cities including New York; Savannah, Georgia; Los Angeles and New Orleans. "That's going up on the fridge", Glaze said. Next time just take your time. He and Katy Perry had a moment after he said "wig", leaving Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie confused. You're in and then you're out. 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. She performed "Young, Dumb and Broke" by Khalid, and Lionel loved the quality of her voice. And I couldn't really tell that was a song.

She did, but it wasn't quite enough. "We don't have to convince ourselves that this sounds good - it just does", Katy says.

"Have you kissed a girl and liked it?"

17-year-old Garrett Jacobs did his grandma, Honey, proud with his audition and even though she couldn't be there in-person, the judges made sure he got her on the phone to hear he was on his way to Hollywood!

And for the network that's now airing Idol, it surely doesn't hurt that Alyssa is a huge fan of Disney. I don't think I'm ready for that.

Maddie, a 19-year-old college student from Clarksville, IA, sang "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie, and Lionel insisted they need her on the show.

Beyond being the original of its kind, "American Idol" has always been focused most on those staking their lives on fulfilling their dreams of a music career. "I wanted her to see the good in it and hopefully she can pick up some of that too, along the way".

The tradition of American Idol is that the first two hours are gradually longer than it needs to be.

Her next step? Heading back to Nashville.

Upon that admission, Katy told the teenager, "Come here right now!" And she writes her own music.

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