Luke Bryan's American Idol Debut

Luke Bryan

The revamped "American Idol" had a strong debut on ABC, reaching more than 10 million viewers and shrugging off Fox's attempt to blunt the premiere's impact with its special on O.J. Simpson.

The first audition stop is New York City, where the first contestant is a 17-year-old with a guitar and a whole lot of personality.

There, they will face another round of auditions and eliminations.

"With this experience being my last experience with American Idol, it was huge for me".

"We say to you from Hollywood: Goodnight, America", said Ryan Seacrest, host of American Idol in 2016. Instead, she thought his audition was an imitation, so Katy said he needs more time to develop and it's a "no" from her.

Channing Dungey, ABC entertainment president, and Cecile Frot-Coutaz, Freemantle Media CEO said in a recent statement that they are standing by Seacrest. It's here that 16-year-old Harper Grace takes a second shot at fame after previously going viral for all the wrong reasons at age 11. He was accompanied by his fiancee Christie, who has stood by him through it all, in the audition room.

Dodgeville singer makes her mark on American Idol
I thought I was going to be the authority... but, no, no, I am the Kindergarten teacher. Noah Davis brought his love of alpacas and his wig-based lexicon to his audition.

"Arranging and working with the contestants and I put the band together obviously, really the music department runs through me". Katy declared he could be "top 10", and called him "the best male singer we've seen so far".

Some minor detail did change, however.

The worst contestant of the episode, 26-year-old Moscow-native Sardor Milano, claims he was the 2015 victor of "X Factor: Russia". Of course, not everyone got in, including Cosby, a music theater performer who did not get that coveted ticket to Hollywood. I ended that article by saying, "This isn't a goodbye - not really". "I was amazed how she didn't seem to be fazed by the fact that I was in a wheelchair".

"Idol" easily ranked as Sunday's #1 network program in both columns.

Performing in front of Lionel Richie, meant Julica was performing in front of one of her idols. The judges don't think he's ready for Hollywood, but at least he got a first kiss out of the deal.

The judges also give three yeses - along with some cautionary advice - to 16-year-old Kentucky cutie Layla Spring, who brings her 7-year-old sister along to the audition.
