American Idol: Michelle Sussett, 22, Was "Living Hopeless In Venezuela"

American Idol: Michelle Sussett, 22, Was

Ryan Seacrest returned as the host of the series.

Katy recently suffered an embarrassing mishap when she forgot the name of her old school friend while appearing on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

28-year-old Julica Kelly made quite the impression at WKOW Idol last September.

The new and improved American Idol focuses on talent and the judges seem to have a softer approach than previous years. "I can't kiss a girl if I'm not in a relationship".

That day in Nashville was a true test. Next time, just take your time.

A nervous Benjamin Glaize began his audition with a grilling from judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and country singer Luke Bryan. While the judges originally decided Bultongez didn't have an artistic identity after he sang James Bay's "Let It Go", Richie felt guilty and wound up changing his vote to "yes". You're in and then you're out.

Benjamin Glaze got his first kiss from Katy Perry, and got it memorialized in a photo, but got no golden ticket.

Performing in front of Lionel Richie, meant Julica was performing in front of one of her idols.


She did, but it wasn't quite enough. We've also introduced you to 26-year-old Dennis Lorenzo from West Philadelphia. "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".

American Idol still has clout.

I left #Venezuela looking for a better future and to help my family nearly 4 years ago.

Koby already had been cast on the Broadway stage and thought she was a shoo-in for this competition.

The stars of different genres also have differing generational perspectives, but each one can speak to genuine secrets of success that only come with long, hard work and lots of rejection.

"We really encourage them", said Perry.

"Definitely to record an album. My mom, for Christmas, she got me a First Act guitar at Wal-Mart, and then after about a year, they put me in guitar lessons because I wanted to learn how to play the guitar", he says. "Nothing's gonna stop me from pushing toward my dream".

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.
