'American Idol' Reboot Judges Open Up About Reality TV Competition

Sunday night felt like fall premiere week - we had a series debut, ABC'sDeception, a season opener, NBC's, a series/season premiere, ABC'sAmerican Idol revival, and a headline-grabbing counter-programming stunt, Fox's O.J. "You gave my heart aflutter".

Grace Walker, a 15-year-old hostess from San Juan Capistrano, CA; Sardor Milano, a 26-year-old supermarket employee from Orlando, FL; and Nico Bones, a 22-year-old skate-shop employee from Long Beach, CA, did not receive golden tickets to Hollywood. He performed "Stay" as his audition and received unanimous approval from judges Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan to advance to the next stage of competition. And Lionel hugged her. I went inside and thought about it and came back outside and I told her I was going to do it. But if there's a chance for her to showcase another original song in this competition (maybe as soon as Hollywood Week?), then I can see the judges keeping her around for a while.

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

"One day I just kept practicing and practicing, and then I started being able to sing in front of my friends, then in front of people I didn't know, and then play at restaurants and stuff locally and it just started from there", he says. It's possible they said no to hundreds of singers, but in two hours, we saw were exactly four "No's" - and Lionel turned into a hugging machine.

"American Idol" continues on Sunday and Monday nights at 8pm on WFTV-Channel 9. One of the nuns, 89-year-old Sister Catherine Rose Holzman, collapsed and died in court on Friday during a hearing related to the Perry case. He earns a golden ticket, and Katy tells him that her wig was snatched by his audition. I can see her belting it out on the Idol stage, but her audition proved that she can showcase her big voice without letting it get out of control; that's key. Ron also plays guitar, and he offers up his spot-on James Bay impression while belting "Let It Go". I don't think I'm ready for that. First was 18-year-old Catie Turner from Langhorne. Pa.
