American Idol: Michelle Sussett, 22, Was "Living Hopeless In Venezuela"

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655 LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655

But Richie said that Seacrest is still the anchor that holds the show together.

Ron Bultongex, 21, Plano, Texas. He shared his story of immigrating to the USA from the Congo when he was 10-years-old. He has an emotional backstory, but fails to immediately wow Katy and Lionel with his rendition of James Bay's "Let It Go". One of the stars launched by "Idol", Kelly Clarkson, is now a panelist on NBC's "The Voice". Bryan was excited about him, but Perry thought the cover was too much of an imitation. Many fans of the show also follow the Idol Pad for spoilers, and it looks like the two sources sync up nicely regarding the Top 24 in ABC's initial reboot season.

Next up was Maddie Poppe, singing "The Rainbow Connection" by the Carpenters. Each judge recommended that she stay committed to the Great White Way rather than a recording contract.

"You are an inspiration to us all", Richie shared. All three judges said yes. "We have moments where we're softies", he said. Koby was a little aggressive about wanting a ticket, but the judges all passed.

Harper Grace, 16, McKinney, Texas.

The 16-year-old singer hosted a watch party at Lake Nona High School Sunday night, surrounded by family, friends, and even some of her own teachers. She's straight-up country should've sang something country. And now, with their golden tickets in hand, both Turner and Lorenzo are headed to Hollywood!

A Dodgeville singer/songwriter worked her way through the auditions. She seems to be screaming more than singing. Who else are you looking forward to seeing in future rounds? She by far, had the best voice of the night. "I think you've got something", Perry said, adding that she could learn a lot from the Hollywood Weed experience. Once the two men helped Perry to her feet, Richie stated, "Some things you have to do for the business". Lionel changes his vote and sends him to Hollywood!

In the March 11 premiere, viewers witnessed talent from all over auditioning in Los Angeles, New York City, Savannah, and New Orleans.

Nico sings a weird song about eating worms and pretty much gets an immediate "no" from all the judges.

Variety reports Nielsen overnight data shows the season premiere on Sunday had a 2.3 rating among adults 18-49 and 10.3 million viewers. Perry consoled one weeping singer. And he does not get a golden ticket.

Alyssa Raghunandan, at just 15-years-old, went next, singing "Almost is Never Enough" by Ariana Grande.

"I really enjoyed meeting you today", Perry told him. He was accompanied by his fiancee Christie, who has stood by him through it all, in the audition room.
