Waterford native is new American Idol music director; worked with Katy Perry

Still, Variety reports ABC's "Idol" reboot was close to the final season premiere on Fox, drawing a 3.0 rating and 10.96 million viewers in 2006. After he sang "Don't You Worry Child" by Swedish House Mafia, all three judges gave him a return trip to Hollywood, and Lionel hugged him. She is also the first to receive a golden ticket to Hollywood.

Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan are at the judges' table this time around and fortunately - or maybe unfortunately - there isn't a Simon Cowell-type in the bunch. She was dead on with her original song, "Yard Sale", which impressed all the panel, particularly Katy, with its distinctive attention to detail. The judges are all smitten with Catie, with Lionel referring to her as a wonderful Martian. "I wanted her to see the good in it and hopefully she can pick up some of that too, along the way". Luckily, her somewhat over-the-top rendition of Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman" was enough to convince the judges to save her from a life of drudgery and send her to Hollywood. "Katy said she could see herself listening to my voice all day with a drink in her hand".

When Benjamin told the judges that he hadn't kissed a girl, as he couldn't do so without being in a relationship, Katy Perry asked him to come over to her desk for his first kiss. Now living in Orlando, Sardor informs us that he has "a big range" and can sing "the male part and the female part" of songs. She took to Instagram to share a cute photo of her kissing her man and she shared a very specific message to Katy in the caption. When we talk about vocal talents on these singing competition shows, a voice like Alyssa's is what we all hope to find. Ron also plays guitar, and he offers up his spot-on James Bay impression while belting "Let It Go".

Will Katy repeat the act in the upcoming auditions?

The auditions then head to Nashville, where we meet 16-year-old Harper Grace.

Noah Davis brought his love of alpacas and his wig-based lexicon to his audition. "At the end I was exhausted, I was really emotional, I was kind of angry".

More auditions will continue Monday night.
