Season 2 American Idol Finalist Kimberley Locke Recaps American Idol Premiere

The return of the "revamped" American Idol may be on a brand new network, but it appears not all the viewers came back along with the reboot. "You gave my heart a flutter". The panel applauded his ability to make such music from such a bare but beloved instrument, and his golden ticket capped an unexpectedly moving first night.

Trevor Holmes, 27, Thousand Oaks, CA: A construction worker who's had a crush on Katy Perry for years, he bowled the judges over as soon as he walked in: Luke immediately dubbed him a "dreamboat" while Katy said "You're so hot.are you engaged?" ("Koby prepares!" she triumphantly points out to viewers.) The opera-trained 26 year old tanks spectacularly by blowing out the judges' eardrums with her original song "Never Stops". And Lionel hugged her.

UC Berkeley civil engineering student William Hung became an instant viral hit when his off-key and clueless version of "She Bangs" won over America, but couldn't get him a golden ticket to Hollywood. 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.

The U.S. duo of Daniel Cnossen and Kendall Gretsch, which had never won a race before, both claimed gold in the sitting event. With the 17 goals, Canada has now scored 991 since Hockey Canada took over the sledge hockey program in 2004.

Telling Katy what he does for a living, he explained: "I'm a cashier at an electronic store but I love it because sometimes there's cute girls and they're not going anywhere without saying hi". Judge Simon Cowell said at the time. Country hitmaker Luke finds the performance "pretty daggum inspiring", but Lionel and Katy initially aren't hearing Ron's own personality shine through. Katy Perry put her signature on Harper's "dream board", annotating that her "American Idol" audition had been realized with gold. Her audition is a memorable one as she wears a black "Rebel" t-shirt, white short-shorts, and knee-high velvet boots. He started playing guitar when he was 16 years old. "You're Top 10", the "Roar" singer tells the 15 year old hopeful.

Since Tulsa was among the audition sites for the "Idol" reboot past year, we can expect to see more Oklahomans on the show as the televised tryouts continue.

Although Fox kindly bid farewell to its groundbreaking reality competition in May 2016, producers weren't ready to let it go, so they shopped it over to ABC.
