The first round of auditions were set in New York City and Los Angeles and we saw a lot of golden tickets be handed out right out of the gate. Nicknamed "dreamboat" by Katy's fellow judge Luke Bryan, the singer/songwriter from Thousand Oaks, CA completely charmed Katy with his looks - and he blew the judges away with his voice.

The female Top 12 are said to include performers Alyssa Raghunandan, Amelia Harris, Catie Turner, and Effie Passero.


Who was your favorite? It was then that Sussett asked the judges to stand up and dance with her.

Next up was Maddie Poppe, singing "The Rainbow Connection" by the Carpenters.

Zachary, a 16-year-old high school student from Wesley Chapel, FL, walked into the audition with a high speaking voice.

Next up is a man who escaped from the Congo with his family when he was only 10 years old.


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

"I know, wig, I feel that already", Perry said.

A quick trip back to NY, and it's a "yes" for 16-year-old Zach Denofrio, who has a high-pitched speaking voice but turns into a Frank Sinatra-type crooner when he sings. Hollywood, here she comes. Her claim to fame is that when she was 11-years-old, her performance of the National Anthem went viral as one of the worst renditions of the song ever.

"Where I cam from, they call it the bottom", he said."It's been a little tough, but I needed it". And Luke added that she'd be doing herself a disservice by doing singing as her career. But it wasn't enough to send him to Hollywood. The panel applauded his ability to make such music from such a bare but beloved instrument, and his golden ticket capped an unexpectedly moving first night. When it was Layla's solo turn, she sang "Who's Loving You" (Jackson Five version). She auditions with her own song, 21 Century Machine, and it's a really great song. With that being said, Harper received three yeses from the judges. Katy tells her she's not a pop star. Glaze nervously agreed, and when he leaned in for a second cheek-kiss, Perry turned her face so their lips connected, which surprised Glaze so much he fell backward. What did you think of this dynamic trio after the first episode?
