'American Idol' Contestant Trevor Holmes Made Katy Perry Swoon During His Audition

The veteran show host introduces spanking new judges Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan and Katy Perry.

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

When he entered the room, Luke Bryan instantly said that Trevor was a "dreamboat" and Katy added that her eyes lit up.

The new and improved American Idol focuses on talent and the judges seem to have a softer approach than previous years.

The popular reality television show, which was discontinued after season 15 in 2016, returned Sunday with the premiere of season 16 audition.

It's been a long American Idol journey and one that's opened a lot of doors for Julica.

The worst contestant of the episode, 26-year-old Moscow-native Sardor Milano, claims he was the 2015 victor of X Factor: Russia.

His statement prompted the "I Kissed A Girl" singer to wave Glaze over for a smooch. Her audition is a memorable one as she wears a black "Rebel" t-shirt, white short-shorts, and knee-high velvet boots. "You gave my heart aflutter".

American Idol is back to sing another day. Alyssa says her dad was there for every audition and every performance through her budding music career. She performed "Young, Dumb and Broke" by Khalid, and Lionel loved the quality of her voice.

Who do you think had the best audition of the night? He became Katy Perry's music director and that led to the show. Nico Bones had the look of a rock singer, with plenty of attitude, but no sign of talent in his song, "Worms". His rendition of Rihanna's "Stay" was so pure and moving that it brought tears, along with big hugs from all the panel. In the words of Katy Perry: "Wig: snatched!" Katy also called her "dope".

The last performer of the night was Dennis Lorenzo, who carried his own trauma from childhood along with his guitar bearing a hole. (What's up with the continuity, Idol?) We learn that he has a somewhat unusually high-pitched speaking voice, but a much deeper singing voice. Katy and Treavor did some major flirting, but alas, he has a girlfriend.and a golden ticket.

It's the same feedback she got almost 10 years ago, when she made it to Hollywood on the show.
