ATU Student Advances on American Idol

ATU Student Advances on American Idol”

American Idol kicks off its brand new season with a new set of judges: Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. Fox canceled the show, and ABC announced that it would reboot "American Idol" a year later.

After 15 seasons on FOX, producers decamped TV's original singing competition and brought it to ABC, where the only on-screen holdover is Ryan Seacrest.

"I'm sorry, I'm really good".

"I started playing piano and started writing a song - my first song was about shampoo and conditioner - then my grandma bought me a guitar right after that, and I fell in love with country music", she said.

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. That music competition show began its new season last month with an episode viewed by 12.3 million people.

Nine hopefuls received golden tickets and made it through to the next round, with several of them blowing the panel away - Catie Turner, Alyssa Raghu, Zachary D'Onofrio, and Dennis Lorenzo.

Maddie, a 19-year-old college student from Clarksville, IA, sang "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie, and Lionel insisted they need her on the show. "I can't take it down, dumba****", she said while walking out of the audition. The auditions were beyond bad, and unfortunately the chemistry between the judges didn't offer a respite from the assault on our ears.

"I sang an original song that I wrote called 'Yard Sale.' It was nerve-wracking singing my own song in front of incredible singers and songwriters". Now, that's the kind of country song that I could hear on the radio. It's crafted perfectly for this genre. I don't love her voice, but I thought the song was brilliant. Perry has listened to an endless stream of heartbreaking stories told to win favour with the judges.

More American Idol auditions continue tonight on ABC. "I've got two children that they put me with". After asking why people had encouraged Kobe to come on the new season of American Idol she asked her this biting, existential question: "You don't listen to music like that, right?" 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. "Katy said she could see herself listening to my voice all day with a drink in her hand". Last spring, producers were reportedly trying to woo "Idol" first-season victor Kelly Clarkson to be a judge, but then NBC's "The Voice" offered her so much money that she jumped ship. On Friday, Sister Catherine Rose Holzman collapsed and died in a courtroom after appealing to Perry asking the singer to "please stop" her purchase of a $14.5 million 8-acre parcel of land in Los Angeles. "I couldn't get you off my mind", Richie said, telling Bultongez that he was changing his vote.

The first night of auditions was rough. Lionel: "I love the sound of your voice, I can not tell you how wonderful it is to see you, I am fascinated with your brain, your writing is insane". When it was Layla's solo turn, she sang "Who's Loving You" (Jackson Five version).

However, months before its premiere, "Idol" had, shall we say, a rocky start.
