New season of 'American Idol' starts with a bang!

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655

"She was always interested in music, I just saw that spark in her and just kept pushing her in that direction", Dennis Raghunandan said.

American Idol returned after a two-year hiatus with a few notable changes, but it was still the same old Idol.

Missing on Sunday's episode was Ryan Seacrest, who used to have countless appearances in every episode.

"Once you're in front of the judges, it is very quick. I chose to sing Adele, 'All I Ask".

"One day I got home from school and my mom said she wanted to talk to me about something, so I went over there and talked to her and she said "I think you should try out for American Idol". and i said mom".

She did, but it wasn't quite enough.

Who thought that out of the mild mannered-looking Clay Aiken would come a powerhouse voice that would propel him all the way to the American Idol finals? In fact, Perry turned it into a hilarious moment as she then proceeded to pretend like she couldn't get off of the floor, slipping and spreading her legs wide, in a mini dress. "We don't have to convince ourselves that this sounds good - it just does", Katy says.

WWE Fastlane 2018 Results/Review; WrestleMania 34 Matches Now Set
It's a clear band-aid boost to revive falling numbers, but the SmackDown creative team only has themselves to blame for it. There was nothing bad to be found in this entire show and many key WrestleMania developments took place.

"With this experience being my last experience with American Idol, it was huge for me".

"The life of a musician has its ups and downs, it's adventurous". Over the years, viewership declined as judges were shuffled and winning contestants were less successful, plus competition increased from other reality TV shows such as "The Voice", "America's Got Talent" and "The X Factor".

Her next step? Heading back to Nashville. The judges were afraid the music industry would eat sweet Layla alive and that she'd be "going into the fire", but they all said "yes" after realizing Layla was strong mentally and had confidence in herself.

"Definitely to record an album". Once the two men helped Perry to her feet, Richie stated, "Some things you have to do for the business".

After identifying her correctly against the five strangers, Katy excitedly said: "Oh my God, stop I know who this is!"

The show is on Sundays and Mondays from 7-9pm.
