LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655

Auditions were done to enable the vocalists to showcase their talents.

Choosing who you think gave the best audition of the night is very much subjective. Is less than a two-year absence from the airwaves worthy of a comeback?

Spoilers from "MJs Big Blog" and "The Idol Pad" reveal which "American Idol" contestants reportedly do well in this ABC reboot featuring Katy Perry, Luke Bryan, and Lionel Richie as judges.

"American Idol" is back to sing another day. In fact, it is the lowest rated Idol premiere in show history.

This article was written by Andrea Tuccillo, ABC News. She's a senior at Neshaminy High School and a member of the school's choir.

A Dodgeville singer/songwriter worked her way through the auditions. The young immigrant from the Congo described his father's brutal form of discipline, and how it drove a wedge in their relationship.

"The life of a musician has its ups and downs, it's adventurous". Katy felt that this was not quite Ron's time, encouraging him to wait and work on his own identity.

Ron, a 21-year-old entrepreneur originally from Congo who now resides in Plano, TX, sang "Let It Go" by James Bay. She has such a mature and developed voice.

Koby already had been cast on the Broadway stage and thought she was a shoo-in for this competition. He admits to the judges that he's never kissed a girl, and gets knocked for a loop when Perry tricks him into a kiss on the lips. She remained stupefied for a number of takes. But she redeems herself in front of the judges, singing an original country song she wrote.

"We really encourage them", said Perry. You can be sure we'll be closely following her story as well! After he sang "Don't You Worry Child" by Swedish House Mafia, all three judges gave him a return trip to Hollywood, and Lionel hugged him. Only time will tell if that strength will keep her in good stead under heavy competition.

Glaze made his way over the the judge's panel and went in for a kiss on the cheek that just wasn't up to Perry's standards.

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

And Noah, an 18-year-old nursing student from Royal, AR, sang "Stay" by Rihanna. The moment was simply handsome.

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.

For Catie Turner, what really stood out to me was how intriguing of a songwriter she is. It was impossible not to be impressed. "I've got two children that they put me with". We just don't know. Katy and Treavor did some major flirting, but alas, he has a girlfriend.and a golden ticket. Luke Bryan dubbed Zach as "Harry Potter", and Harry Potter never got Katy Perry swooning. The Allen Stone song, "Unaware" could not have been more ideal.

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.
