American Idol to make a return to television

Luke Bryan Katy Perry and Lionel Richie

Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap.

Perry said that while she is blunt and "very cut and dry" when it comes to critiquing the contestants, she has a line she refuses to cross.

"American Idol" had a solid return to network television Sunday night after a almost two-year hiatus. "We're not really sure where you fit in the mainstream.' And, I guess my response to that is, I really never have fit in the mainstream, it's really not where I plan to go with my music".

The judges also give three yeses - along with some cautionary advice - to 16-year-old Kentucky cutie Layla Spring, who brings her 7-year-old sister along to the audition. But it wasn't enough to send him to Hollywood. The judges don't think he's ready for Hollywood, but at least he got a first kiss out of the deal.

Philadelphia Eagles: Trey Burton will be missed on offense
In addition to the report from Mike Garafolo of NFL Network, 247Sports also has information on the terms of the deal. Last season he caught fewer passes - 23 receptions for 238 yards - but hauled in 5 touchdown passes.

The female Top 12 are said to include performers Alyssa Raghunandan, Amelia Harris, Catie Turner, and Effie Passero. It's here that 16-year-old Harper Grace takes a second shot at fame after previously going viral for all the wrong reasons at age 11.

But when he belted out "The Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra, the judges were amazed by the depth of his sound and the richness in his voice. After she sang Adele's "When We Were Young", Katy said she had "full body chills", and Luke compared her voice to an angel's. During Benjamin's Nashville audition, he admits that he's never kissed a girl before. Luke was torn, but declined, until he decided he couldn't let Ron go. You know it seems a little not soft - I do try and watch myself because I do know how it feels to be in their shoes. But Richie said that Seacrest is still the anchor that holds the show together.

"Throughout the years, meeting Paula Abdul, Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, Simon, and opening for bigger bands, like Foghat, I've been able to do some really cool things and I'm pretty proud of myself". Katy and Treavor did some major flirting, but alas, he has a girlfriend.and a golden ticket. "She don't want you bein' nice, boy!" he barked. "It's not your language it's just for us".

Dennis, a 26-year-old singer from Philadelphia, PA, performed "Unaware" by Allen Stone.
