Choosing who you think gave the best audition of the night is very much subjective.

It was still a plus for ABC.

The figure is down 23 percent in the 18-49 demo and down from the 10.9 million that tuned in to the "Farewell Season" on Fox as well as down six percent in total viewers from the last season on Fox. Same show, same judges.

ABC says the Deception premiere was its best scripted bow in the time period since the beginning of Quantico in September of 2015. Darrell did get her golden ticket to Hollywood, but was cut during the next round of auditions.

After identifying her correctly against the five strangers, Katy excitedly said: "Oh my God, stop I know who this is!" Before performing his piece for the panel, the 19-year-old admitted he has never had a girlfriend and has also never had a kiss on the lips.

"American Idol" is back, and the early ratings suggest ABC's revival is off to a strong start. I can understand why any of the singers I mentioned above would be someone's favorite because I'm looking forward to seeing what they do next as well. I can see her belting it out on the Idol stage, but her audition proved that she can showcase her big voice without letting it get out of control; that's key. In this version of "Idol", the judges went a little over the top as they tried to be nice.

"All I can tell you about the next step is it's incredible and I can't wait for you guys to see it", Alyssa Raghu said.

Julica writes a lot of her own music and you can find it by searching for her on Youtube. It's all good for the brand.
