'American Idol' 2018 capitalizes on chemistry, connection, and second chances

Nielsen reported a turnout of 10.34 million viewers for the two-hour "Idol", along with a 2.3 average rating in the key demo of adults 18-49. Lionel Richie approved her as fit for Hollywood because "you're strong", he asserted. She is also the first to receive a golden ticket to Hollywood. The contestants had to get by celebrity judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan. After impressing the judges with a performance of an original song, she impressed them even more with a performance of Khalid's "Young, Dumb & Broke". And Lionel hugged her.

"I've always thought that she was special". Fortunately, Noah also brought a stand-out performance of Rihanna's "Stay" that snatched Katy's wig and sent Noah with it to Hollywood.

She said she has hopes of bringing the show back to life and to give hope to other aspiring singers. The judges suggested he should work on his craft and come back in a couple years to try out again. While the judges originally decided Bultongez didn't have an artistic identity after he sang James Bay's "Let It Go", Richie felt guilty and wound up changing his vote to "yes".

Interestingly, Benjamin Glaze, a 19-year-old contestant from Enid, was one of the unsuccessful candidates but looked visibly happy after receiving a kiss from Katy Perry. None of the judges know what to say, and after a few painful moments, Sardor is thankfully shown the door.

Katy is later near tears after high school sophomore Alyssa Rhagu sings Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes' duet "Almost Is Never Enough" during her Orlando audition.

A quick trip back to NY, and it's a "yes" for 16-year-old Zach Denofrio, who has a high-pitched speaking voice but turns into a Frank Sinatra-type crooner when he sings.

The premiere of ABC's "American Idol" relaunch drew modest ratings by "Idol" standards but solid ones in the context of the general TV landscape. "I think in the past there was some of that and maybe taking advantage of people..."

On the second season of the show, the confident 23-year-old shocked the judges with his rendition of "Always and Forever".
