Katy Perry takes a tumble and flashes fellow 'American Idol' judges

ABC's "American Idol" premiere drew plenty of eyeballs Sunday, even as Fox - where "Idol" used to air - ran programming that was seen by many observers as a direct attempt to dampen enthusiasm for ABC's reboot.

Before claiming the Idol title in season four, Carrie Underwood was just an Oklahoma farm girl who had never flown in a plane before.

"I know, wig, I feel that already", Perry said. In fact, it is the lowest rated Idol premiere in show history.

Jokes aside, it really was all fun and games and, in the end, the judges gave Sussett a golden ticket to Hollywood, because they thought she was super fun.

"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. Judge Simon Cowell said at the time.

Missing on Sunday's episode was Ryan Seacrest, who used to have countless appearances in every episode.

American Idol hopeful Katrina Darrell immediately made her mark on season eight when she showed up to her audition wearing nothing but a bikini and a bad attitude.


Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan on "American Idol". In fact, Perry turned it into a hilarious moment as she then proceeded to pretend like she couldn't get off of the floor, slipping and spreading her legs wide, in a mini dress.

The real test for "Idol" will be on Monday's when it goes up against NBC's The Voice. 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 awful rendition of the national anthem. Sunday night we got a first glimpse at the competition, and a chance to see how two singer/songwriters from the DE valley did when given their big shot at singing for the judges.

General Larry Platt never had a chance of making it to Hollywood with his original song, "Pants on the Ground", which lamented the low-rise jeans of the day's youth, but he did become one of the most memorable parts of Idol season nine.

That settles that! And given that the judges joked about giving a golden ticket to a 7-year-old to attend Hollywood Week in 2026, this show may actually last forever.

Your deal is why I signed up for this, this feeling.

Harper Grace majorly redeemed herself in her audition after being known for a disaster of a National Anthem performance at just 11 years old. So, I don't think it'd be fair to put you in that kind of competition.
