Welcome back, "American Idol": Luke, Katy & Lionel find talent in four cities

Welcome back,

Ron, a 21-year-old entrepreneur originally from Congo who now resides in Plano, TX, sang "Let It Go" by James Bay. "I can't kiss a girl if I'm not in a relationship".

Katy Perry floored an American Idol contestant on Sunday night (11Mar18) when she planted a kiss on his lips.

Some of Monday morning's highlights featured 17-year-old Catie Turner, Florida teen Alyssa Raghu and the comeback of Harper Grace.

After identifying her correctly against the five strangers, Katy excitedly said: "Oh my God, stop I know who this is!" That earned her three yeses.

But it isn't just the judges who are winning fans over, it's the unparalleled talent that is walking through those famed audition doors, hoping for a golden ticket to Hollywood. Sussett kicked off her audition performance by singing an a cappella song in Spanish, before she suddenly stopped to play music from her portable speaker. Now, that's the kind of country song that I could hear on the radio. The judges were afraid the music industry would eat sweet Layla alive and that she'd be "going into the fire", but they all said "yes" after realizing Layla was strong mentally and had confidence in herself. I'm really excited by her potential on this show, and I can see her doing well. The reboot of the show pulled in a robust audience of 10.3 million viewers during its premiere on ABC Sunday night (March 11), Nielsen reports. "I've got two children that they put me with". One of the nuns, 89-year-old Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, collapsed and died in court on Friday during a hearing related to the Perry case. She has such a mature and developed voice.

After blowing the judges away with his voice, even Cowell admitted he didn't see that performance coming, telling him, "You don't look like a pop star, but you've got a great voice". Once the two men helped Perry to her feet, Richie stated, "Some things you have to do for the business". "Everyone was crying. I was crying and then Luke Bryan came out, and he shakes my mom and dad's hand and says, 'You birthed a attractive mind, ' and all of that stuff".
