2 local contestants advance to the next round on abc's American Idol

American Idol has a new home on ABC after airing its final episode on FOX.

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

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?"

Michelle Sussett, 22, Miami, FL: Originally from Venezuela, the super-energetic singer performed a song in Spanish and then turned some music on and forced the judges to get up and dance with her. Lionel was "fascinated" by her brain. She's going to Hollywood.

The other showcased contestants from NY include Maddie Poppe, who sings The Muppet Movie song "Rainbow Connection", and gets three yeses for her "storyteller voice"; and Koby, a 26-year-old musical theater performer from Denver, who belts perhaps the longest, loudest vocal run in Idol history.


"Once you're in front of the judges, it is very quick". Naturally, this gets "I Kissed A Girl" singer Katy to sneakily plant one on the flabbergasted singer.

In past seasons, judges like Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban related how they never saw the preview profiles of contestants that viewers see, and often, only learned the back stories and struggles of the hopefuls through the weeks of the honing process. Nico Bones had the look of a rock singer, with plenty of attitude, but no sign of talent in his song, "Worms".

Clearly stunned by what had just happened, Benjamin fell to the floor open-mouthed, as Katy celebrated by raising her arms in the air and getting high fives from Lionel and Luke. Country hitmaker Luke finds the performance "pretty daggum inspiring", but Lionel and Katy initially aren't hearing Ron's own personality shine through. Alyssa says her dad was there for every audition and every performance through her budding music career. "I think Kary's just a little jealous".

Sunday night she sang for a different kind of crowd, including HER idol: Katy Perry.

But it didn't satisfy the 33-year-old popstar who complained that Benjamin "didn't make the smooch sound".
