Luke Bryan Katy Perry and Lionel Richie are the new “American Idol” judges now on ABC

Layla Spring brought out her little sister, Dixie, to sing a song together before her own audition.

This week, the show returns after a two-year hiatus following its cancellation on Fox.

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. Perry said his presentation felt a bit "rushed", and added "maybe that's because I sped up your BPM".

That day in Nashville was a true test. And it seems just like not-so-old times.

Trevor Holmes, 27, Thousand Oaks, CA: A construction worker who's had a crush on Katy Perry for years, he bowled the judges over as soon as he walked in: Luke immediately dubbed him a "dreamboat" while Katy said "You're so hot.are you engaged?" But she redeems herself in front of the judges, singing an original country song she wrote. You're in and then you're out.

An audition for American Idol is one thing, but getting your first kiss from Katy Perry already makes you a victor. "I was pretty excited to hear her say that".

She did, but it wasn't quite enough. "It's not your language it's just for us".

When the series initially went off the air in 2016, I published an op-ed in which I discussed what American Idol has meant to me over the years.

It's the same feedback she got almost 10 years ago, when she made it to Hollywood on the show.

As for what's next for Alyssa's "American Idol" journey, she isn't revealing much, but she told us it's something that we won't want to miss. She called this a "pinch me" kind of moment that ended with three "yes" votes and that shiny golden ticket to Hollywood. Music was a way of expression once the musician made his way to the United States, and it turned life toward the positive.

Koby already had been cast on the Broadway stage and thought she was a shoo-in for this competition.

"I really enjoyed meeting you today", Perry said.

"Definitely to record an album". "Come here, Benjamin. Come here right now!" she directed. The Florida teen's unexpected take on Frank Sinatra's "The Way You Look Tonight" is so extraordinary that it motivates Katy to her feet and into Zack's arms for a dance.
