New 'American Idol' Judges On How The Show Will Be Different This Time, Throw Shade At Previous Panel?

Lorenzo and Turner were passed through to the next round on the show on Sunday, when the show's new season debuted.

Pooley is the show's music director. Even more mind-blowing: It dawns on judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan that the sweet sophomore was born in 2002, the same year Idol first crackled across Fox's airwaves in America. Her fellow AI judges, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie, also had a good chuckle about the "Swish Swish" songstress' onscreen snafu. As she was dancing, Perry lost her balance, taking a tumble and exposing herself to the judges in the process.

American Idol is an American singing competition television series created by Simon Fuller. Katy seems annoyed that she's being forced to dance and actually mocks what Sussett is doing. She's not mean, but she does tell it like it is. "I heard you have some talents", she tells the hopeful singer auditioning for the all-star panel. Rejected contestants are brought back for another shot.

In most instances, judging a woman's workplace success on whether or not she is likable sets her - and everyone else, frankly - up to fail because it reinforces ugly stereotypes about how women are "supposed" to behave and leaves room for stupid mind games that get in the way of good work.


"There are incredible voices on the show this year", said Kris Pooley. While her anthem did her no favors, Grace impressed the judges with an original and an inspired cover of Khalid's "Young, Dumb and Broke".

Katy Perry showed her professionalism in the recent episode of "American Idol".

They were Misha Gontar, a 26-year-old MRI technologist from Marengo, IL; Autumn Woods, a 27-year-old library clerk from Katy, TX; "Hank the Businessman", a 22-year-old delivery driver from Pittsburgh, PA; Neshia Ruffins, a 25-year-old singer from New Orleans; and Jonathan Herman, a 23-year-old content analyst from Austin, TX.

Johnson, who was identified in a graphic as a pub server, got a hug from Richie and a unanimous "you're going to Hollywood" from the judges. She is one to root for, and one hopes that Hollywood doesn't eat her alive.


Gabbii Jones, 20, St. Louis: Her father has given her 30 days to make her dreams of stardom come true, or else she's got to get a job.

While one wrote, "Imagine if a 33-year-old male artist tricked a 19-year-old female auditioner into a kiss like Katy Perry just did with that teenage guy".

Bryan suggested he "hone his craft a little more" and "get better at singing" before trying again soon. William makes it through to Hollywood after bravely tackling Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You".

The head-scratching moments didn't stop there. His performance of "Unaware" has the judges intrigued, especially because of his impressive falsetto. He we have a serious contender who's hungry for the win.


If you tuned in to the second night of the premiere on Monday, you may have noticed a couple of familiar faces among the contestants if you're from the Southwest Oklahoma area. Will you be tuning in?
