'American Idol' return is a big hit

'American Idol' return is a big hit

His audition was completely natural and he was just completely in the zone.

Richie, who took a break from the 27-city audition tour to be feted during the Kennedy Center Honors, admits that he hesitated before joining the show, but eventually realized the series was the best way to share his wisdom with the next generation. She auditions with "Never Stops", an original song. The sixteenth season of American Idol kicked off with the three judges critiquing aspiring singers in New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, and Orlando. Perry thought it was a very well written song.

Seacrest, who was recently accused of sexual harassment by a former stylist, will host the show as he did in previous years. Turner got the first golden ticket of the season.

Of course he was referring to Lionel's 36-year-old reality star daughter Nicole Richie.

But still, 13 million people tuned in to see someone named Trent Harmon win that 15th season, and that's a pretty good number in our crowded TV landscape. He had a really delicate voice and already exhibited strong storytelling instincts.

"It felt to us that it would be extremely fraudulent to bring the show back so quickly - that our fans would not appreciate being told one thing and then have the show brought it back right away", Walden added.

We're going to Hollywood.

Next up was Maddie Poppe, singing "The Rainbow Connection" by the Carpenters. That will be a great experience for her. We've also introduced you to 26-year-old Dennis Lorenzo from West Philadelphia. All three judges said yes. I give that audition a A- and they give her a golden ticket!

Harper Grace, 16, McKinney, Texas. She performed "Rainbow Connection" and impressed the judges. I can see her belting it out on the Idol stage, but her audition proved that she can showcase her big voice without letting it get out of control; that's key.

"It's really a danceable music - that's what it was invented for", Harris said.

Bryan also chimed in and said they are empathetic and "emotional" more times than not.

Layla Spring 16, Marion County, KY. She seems to be screaming more than singing.

"I started playing piano and started writing a song - my first song was about shampoo and conditioner - then my grandma bought me a guitar right after that, and I fell in love with country music", she said.

Grace grew up honing her talents in gymnastics - taught by her mother, who trained under Béla Károlyi - but a small voice eventually convinced the young gymnast that her path would be much different. Richie was anxious about her not being ready for the competition, but he still voted yes.

While speaking with People on Sunday, the "Dark Horse" singer said that their approach with the contestants is quite direct, but not offensive. Perry said it was a little rushed. I like Lionel as a judge so far.

Nico Bones, 22, Long Beach, CA. Perry said he was dope, and Richie said he was happy the song ended when it did.

Both women were contacted by "American Idol" producers. He gets his ticket to Hollywood. Wig. Her voice is fantastic. I know exactly where you are. "You're top ten." Raghunandan is Hollywood-bound.

"I should've fought for him", Bryan declared to Richie.

Zach D'Onofiro brings Frank Sinatra back with his rendition of "The Way You Look Tonight". He had a surprising crooner voice, but Bryan wanted to hear more attitude from him.
