Revamped 'American Idol' reaches more than 10 million viewers

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655

She auditions with her own song, 21 Century Machine, and it's a really great song. Katy loved him too. She is likely to have staying power through the coming weeks.

An average of 10.3 million viewers tuned in as judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan took their place at the judges desk for the very first time. The young immigrant from the Congo described his father's brutal form of discipline, and how it drove a wedge in their relationship.

Katy beckons the boy over to the panel before letting him plant a wet one on her cheek. Ron sings "Let it Go", by James Bay. I loved him. I give him an A+ for that audition. An hour later, Lionel Richie changes his mind and has Ron brought back. She by far, had the best voice of the night.

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

But who I'm going with is 16-year-old Alyssa Raghu, who wowed everyone with her cover of Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes' "Almost is Never Enough". It was then that Sussett asked the judges to stand up and dance with her. As promised, the episode on Sunday did not highlight bad auditions. I am really impressed with her songwriting skills.

If you have been hiding under a rock and haven't heard the news yet: American Idol is back.

But her second song was the selling point. And now, with their golden tickets in hand, both Turner and Lorenzo are headed to Hollywood! "Who's Loving You" by the Jackson 5. She's off to Hollywood. Rather, they tell them that they should try again next time.

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.

But the guitar wasn't his only musical talent; he could also sing. The talent tide surged in with Noah Davis, an Arkansas nursing student who dreamed of buying an alpaca once he became the "American Idol". The moment was simply handsome. I'd say that was a B- audition, but the judges send her onto Hollywood.

28-year-old Julica Kelly made quite the impression at WKOW Idol last September.
