South Jersey teen moves on to next round on ABC's 'American Idol'

'American Idol' 2018 Premiere Time, Channel & TV Schedule

"I think if you ain't careful, you might win 'American Idol, '" raved Luke. I still wish Harry Connick Jr. had come back, but I like these three American Idol judges.

ABC's Idol dropped from its premiere high of 10.3 million viewers (which was in fact an historic low for Idol premieres) to 8.4 mil, with a 1.8 rating in the key adults 18-49 demo. Despite Perry's fumble, that didn't affect the young waitress' chances whatsoever who received her golden ticket to Hollywood. She's an easy pick for Hollywood. All three judges are up dancing with her. "It could be a day look gloss that you glam up with some glitter to go out". He gets a ticket to Hollywood.

"I've lost my voice", a tearful Perry told the 25-year-old Texan. Some need to sing with their eyes open, while others seem to need some better stage presence.

For something completely different, we head to Los Angeles.

From Venezuela is Michelle Sussett, a 22-year-old waitress from Miami, Florida.

"I've always thought that she was special". Unfortunately, fellow judges Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie had no idea what the saying meant - and Katy and Noah did not want to explain. Although his song choice is interesting and his tone is interesting, they judges turn him down.

Brandon Diaz performed in honor of his father next, a singer immigrated to America from Cuba. His range is great and the judges are engaged.

Barcelona star wants Neymar back
You cannot spend that amount of money on a player who could be injured - he missed the Real Madrid game and no one else was there. He was talked about as part of that three up front, so the reasons for him leaving were odd and surprising when it happened.

Construction worker and singer-songwriter Trevor Holmes auditioned next, announcing his crush on Perry right off the bat.

Katy Perry slips after her dance battle.

Interesting Katy who was single at the time of filming flirted with some of the contestants.

Lane Hardy, 17, Livingston, Louisiana: A true country boy, he sang "Hurricane" by Band of Heathens and won the judges over with his soulful, gritty style.

Autumn Wood, 27, Katy, Texas: The library clerk came in dolled up in what Katy described as "glamazon" style, but her version of "Total Eclipse of the Heart" was weird: She sounded like Cher with a bad cold.

"I remember wigging out in my family room". Now we're at a montage of rejections. She can definitely sing.

She eventually managed to get to her feet and pull her dress down.

Watch the unusual American Idol moment below. They like his voice and send him through.

"American Idol" continues on Sunday and Monday nights at 8pm on WFTV-Channel 9. Although he managed to make it to the Hollywood. He ended up tipping the scales at 390 and decided to make a change after wanting to end his life. Gontar entertained our judges but failed to make it to top-10.

Gabbii Jones, a 24-year-old caretaker from St. Louis, MO, then sang "Dangerous Woman" for the judges.

"The short hair obviously really puts your face at the forefront - there's nothing to hide behind!" she says. He auditions with "It's a Man's World", and has a unique sound to his voice.

Of course to close out the competition, we need a heartwrenching story. Francisco was hit by a vehicle after moving to Nashville, resulting in paralysis from the waist down. Katy starts crying and Lionel isn't far behind. And Lionel hugged her.
