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.

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.
