American Idol 2018 Premiere Recap: Watch Audition Videos & Highlights

American Idol kicks off its brand new season with a new set of judges: Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan.

Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap.

Langhorne's Catie Turner, 17, and West Philly native Dennis Lorenzo, 26, are going to Hollywood thanks to unanimous yeses from judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan this week. In this first episode, we meet potential contestants from New York, Savannah, Los Angeles and New Orleans.

American Idol airs Sunday's and Monday's on ABC in the US.

Christchurch testing ground for world's first self-piloted electric air taxi
Once it's in the air, a single propeller drives Cora at about 110 miles per hour, between altitudes of 500 and 3,000 feet. The report says Kitty Hawk is already working on a taxi-hailing app, and plans to run the entire operation itself.

DUP fury as Tusk says Ireland comes first in negotiations on Brexit
But he was heckled by UKIP's David Coburn, who shouted: "It is a British issue". The section on the Irish border was broadly unchanged in the latest draft.

UConn Trick Shot Quarterback John McEntee Loses White House Job
Prior to that, it was mostly the president's family that surrounded him, along with Stephen Miller, Dan Scavino and Hope Hicks . Katrina Pierson , a Trump campaign spokeswoman in 2016, was also rehired as a campaign adviser in 2020.

There were also multiple heartwrenching backstories: 22-year-old Ron Bultongez talked about coping with his abusive father. "I don't want the outside world to mess with your attractive brain", Bryan urged 17-year-old Catie Turner, a songwriter who admitted people often view her as too "intense".

Harper Grace majorly redeemed herself in her audition after being known for a disaster of a National Anthem performance at just 11 years old. It was then that Sussett asked the judges to stand up and dance with her. She sang Ariana Grande's "Almost Is Never Enough" with professionalism far beyond her years. Lionel Richie approved her as fit for Hollywood because "you're strong", he asserted.

But when he belted out "The Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra, the judges were amazed by the depth of his sound and the richness in his voice. She's obviously got a nice voice and her hyper personality won't be forgotten anytime soon. "And we'll see where it all goes". It was a moment that was about to get even better. The panel was so completely charmed that Katy Perry issued an advance golden ticket for 2026, allowing Dixie through to Hollywood.

After composing himself, Glaze began his audition singing Nick Jonas's hit "Levels". "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional". He strums his battered guitar and sings a star-making rendition of "Unaware" by Allen Stone. You know it seems a little not soft - I do try and watch myself because I do know how it feels to be in their shoes.
