ATU Student Advances on American Idol

Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan are at the judges' table this time around and fortunately - or maybe unfortunately - there isn't a Simon Cowell-type in the bunch.

Sock-obsessed Zack auditions in NY. He nailed not just the song but earned a dance with Katy Perry. The banter, the bartering, and the competition between the judges consistently overtake the proceedings on "The Voice", and even Kelly Clarkson [VIDEO] voiced reservations about the 2018 incarnation of the competition that she took in the first year, going head-to-head with her current station on "The Voice".
