Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap. The sixteenth season of American Idol kicked off with the three judges critiquing aspiring singers in New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, and Orlando.
"American Idol" had a solid return to network television Sunday night after a almost two-year hiatus.
There were also multiple heartwrenching backstories: 22-year-old Ron Bultongez talked about coping with his abusive father.
"I've never been in a relationship", he announced. And 16-year-old Harper Grace landed a well-deserved ticket to Hollywood after she confessed that she went viral at age 11 for a truly bad rendition of the national anthem. Each judge recommended that she stay committed to the Great White Way rather than a recording contract. Who will win the first season of the new American Idol? Lionel, Katy and Luke did you hear what the home audience heard? hearing?
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. You can be sure we'll be closely following her story as well!
Benjamin Glaze, a 19-year-old cashier from Enid, OK, was also denied a golden ticket; however, he got his first kiss ever - on the lips - from Katy, so he was thrilled.
You can't keep Katy Perry off the dance floor. A flustered Benjamin needs some water before he can perform, and he then sings a Nick Jonas song. The judges were going gaga over Alyssa - and for good reason. His rendition of Rihanna's "Stay" was so pure and moving that it brought tears, along with big hugs from all the panel. In the words of Katy Perry: "Wig: snatched!" "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional". Lorenzo's father was murdered when the singer was just five years old, leaving him to be raised by his grandparents. The Allen Stone song, "Unaware" could not have been more ideal. You can also live stream on ABC official website (only for viewers located within the United States and its territories), HULU or PlayStation Vue.
