Katy Perry Surprises 'American Idol' Contestant with First Kiss

Katy Perry Surprises 'American Idol' Contestant with First Kiss”

Despite her Mary Katherine Gallagher demeanor, Turner played them her original song, "21 Century Machine".

Young Zach D'Onofrio may not sound like it when he speaks, but he's got a Sinatra-style singing voice that had judge Katy Perry dancing with him-and judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie dancing with each other! Lionel was "fascinated" by her brain.

Luke Bryan took his seat at the American Idol judge's table, and for two straight hours he doled out advice, praise and nine tickets to Hollywood to Idol hopefuls. She's a senior at Neshaminy High School and a member of the school's choir. Did Alyssa's lovely voice stand out to you? Lionel, Katy and Luke did you hear what the home audience heard? hearing? She even got a mention for the dirty deed at the time from Good Morning America's Robin Roberts. He's been made fun of for his high-pitched voice. On top of making the judges feel good, Michelle has a pretty decent voice, too. And it was a "heck yes" from Katy!

Less heartwarming is Katy's quest to find love in the audition room. He started playing guitar when he was 16 years old. 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. Lionel Richie loved the "storyteller" in her voice. "I know it wasn't an overnight success for me; it's not going to be for them", she said. With that being said, Harper received three yeses from the judges.

Luke found the singer "inspiring" and also admired the hopeful's "honesty", so he said "yes". We get wrapped up in their stories.

Little Dyxie came in with her older sister, Layla Spring, for a bit of a duet that earned her a golden ticket of her own.for 2026!

Lionel agreed with Katy that the music industry is "an identity business", so he said "no" as well.

The first audition of the Nashville, Tennessee tour stop belonged to 16-year-old Harper Grace.

The show saves the best for last: 26-year-old Philly native Dennis Lorenzo. Katy also called her "dope". I was in their shoes 10 years ago. He sings Stay by Rhianna on the piano. Those who did not make it were not told that they suck. What unbridled enthusiasm! She also has some serious pipes on her for just 15.

Koby is 26 years old from Denver, Colorado, and is a theater performer. "Maybe you're a Broadway star, maybe you're in voiceover, maybe you're gonna do jingles". And Luke added that she'd be doing herself a disservice by doing singing as her career.

Benjamin Glaze got his first kiss from Katy Perry, and got it memorialized in a photo, but got no golden ticket.
