2 local contestants advance to the next round on abc's American Idol

2 local contestants advance to the next round on abc's American Idol

Sunday night marked a monumental return for singing competition American Idol.

Catie Turner certainly told her own story before taking the stage.

A Dodgeville singer/songwriter worked her way through the auditions. As promised, the episode on Sunday did not highlight bad auditions. "You are inspirational... I want you to be very proud of yourself".

Things took an awkward turn, however, when Holmes responded to one of Perry's questions by calling her "ma'am".

Seems like only yesterday when the curtain came down on "Idol" after Fox decided it wanted to take a break from the show, but ABC chose to revive the show and introduced a new panel of judges that featured Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryant to spruce things up, CNN reported.

Benjamin Glaze, a 19-year-old cashier from Enid, OK, was also denied a golden ticket; however, he got his first kiss ever - on the lips - from Katy, so he was thrilled.


Nico sings a freakish song about eating worms and pretty much gets an immediate "no" from all the judges.

Speaking of wigs, Katy bonds with Arkansas nursing major Noah Davis, 18, who plays piano while belting out Rihanna's "Stay". "I know it wasn't an overnight success for me; it's not going to be for them", she said.

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 weird: She sounded like Cher with a bad cold.

The next surprise was Zach D'Onofrio, who walked out bearing socks custom-chosen for each judge. "I don't remember anything before waking up in the hospital and asking, 'Why aren't my legs on the bed?' I look down and sure enough, there's my legs on the bed, but I can't feel them".

"We don't do that anymore but we still laugh just as much", added Perry. The judges are blown away and he gets his golden ticket. Luke Bryan dubbed Zach as "Harry Potter", and Harry Potter never got Katy Perry swooning.

Who do you think had the best audition of the night? His father was murdered when he was five, and he found himself on the wrong side of life until a guitar became his salvation. After he sang Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely", Lionel hugged him, Katy cried, and all three judges told him he was going to Hollywood.
