South Jersey teen moves on to next round on ABC's 'American Idol'

South Jersey teen moves on to next round on ABC's 'American Idol'

So, judge Katy Perry invited the teen over to the desk and urged him to plant a kiss on her cheek. That's where our next contestant, Rissa Watson, is from. Without question, it was a unanimous yes.

"I'm amazed by the falsetto to the point of just wanting to remove myself from the room for a minute", Lionel gushed. In fact, this is the second most-watched telecast of The Voice in the past year.

Katy who got impressed by Mara's performance said that the bar is increased high to start off the audience night. "We gotta get you one of those good ol' boys Katy, you keep dating them, damn weirdos".

Thaddeus returned for Season 16 as a new man physically, mentally and emotionally after losing a substantial amount of weight.

Misha Gontar, 26, Marengo, Illinois: Originally from the Ukraine, Misha sang a super-catchy but incredibly weird song that featured an "oo-ee-oh/bow bow bow" chant and speed-rapping in what we assume was Ukranian. That's when Katy Perry beckoned him forward and surprised him with a kiss. Plus, it's only a matter of time until we see her own shoe collection front and center. She was entertaining, but she also had a strong voice. Despite Perry's fumble, that didn't affect the young waitress' chances whatsoever who received her golden ticket to Hollywood.

"I'm the best dancer ever", Perry quipped.

Lionel described William's performance as "smoove", not just smooth. Layla got a real ticket to Hollywood.

"I've never been in a relationship", he told the trio of judges. So, I don't think it'd be fair to put you in that kind of competition. Michelle Sussett lives in Miami and is originally from Venezuela.

"I've always thought that she was special".

Construction worker and singer-songwriter Trevor Holmes auditioned next, announcing his crush on Perry right off the bat. And all three artists made it to the Hollywood.

Gabbii Jones, a 24-year-old caretaker from St. Louis, MO, then sang "Dangerous Woman" for the judges. Bryan said he could win the whole thing.

Due to the "unique dimension" in Gabbii's voice, the judges sent her to Hollywood. "Not only did Luke think Garrett, standing 6'4" was lovely to look at, but he also noted his performance was "raw" and "badass".

Since Tulsa was among the audition sites for the "Idol" reboot a year ago, we can expect to see more Oklahomans on the show as the televised tryouts continue.

In New Orleans, Laine Hardy sang "Hurricane", playing guitar and adding a lot of rasp.
