Katy Perry floors American Idol contestant with impromptu kiss

Layla Spring American Idol

"American Idol" returned Sunday on a new network with new judges, but was there the same old love for the singing competition?

At one point, host Ryan Seacrest explained, "This isn't about getting knocked down, but more about picking yourself back up".

Each word carried a sentence of a year, it seems, as Idol is baaaaaack. His audition was touching and his story was inspiring, but his music style was basically an imitation. "I know it wasn't an overnight success for me; it's not going to be for them", she said.

The rebooted U.S. TV talent show premiered on Sunday, with Katy on the judging panel alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

Our Madison affiliate WKOW 27 News sent her to the front of the line in Chicago for the national auditions, where show producers sent her to Nashville to sing in front of the new American Idol judges. The "Swish Swish" singer was quick to show off a freaky talent, and we can't stop watching. But I was looking down at my notes.

Trevor Holmes, 27, captivated Katy's attention and later revealed that he's had a longtime crush on her, though he now has a girlfriend. "I want to give it a good college fund and raise it with good manners and to be successful in life". "You were perfectly on the beat, but Sinatra went (pause)", he told Zach. Katy even raves that she's certain Mara will make it to the Top 10, and the bar is raised high to start off the night! She dances with contestants, accepts their gifts and consoles them. She gets thee yeses and a golden ticket to Hollywood.


Benjamin Glaze got his first kiss from Katy Perry, and got it memorialized in a photo, but got no golden ticket. She's not mean, but she does tell it like it is. "I don't want the outside world to mess with your handsome brain", Bryan urged 17-year-old Catie Turner, a songwriter who admitted people often view her as too "intense". Rejected contestants are brought back for another shot. Not every American Idol victor has this sort of story and that is perfectly fine; it's just important for a show like this to have a wide array of different stories to better show the wide array of different people who are out there in America. Her criticisms are usually sugar-coated in kindness but she does speak her mind on occasion, telling one would-be singer that those who sing her praises are not being truthful. I was in their shoes 10 years ago. She's off to Hollywood.

In the not-ready-to-advance department is Brandon Cruz, who got a cashier job to meet girls. "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional". Bryan suggested he hone his craft a little more and get better at singing.

Nico Bones, 22, Long Beach, CA. "But to change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake".

The head-scratching moments didn't stop there.

Sardor Milano, 26, Orlando, FL.
