Katy Perry: I'll be a straight shooter on American Idol

Adjust Comment Print

The sixteenth season of American Idol kicked off with the three judges critiquing aspiring singers in New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, and Orlando. In the early stages of production of the "American Idol" reboot, a potential scandal - of sorts - emerged, when a TMZ report alleged that there wasn't almost enough animosity among the new judges. It's going to be a rough season.

The rebooted U.S. TV talent show premiered on Sunday, with Katy on the judging panel alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

Will analyse bypoll results: UP Deputy CM
As for UP, he said the Congress is keen on rebuilding in Uttar Pradesh , but that will not happen overnight. It was also the home ground of the UP chief Minister Yogi Adityanand and considered a bastion of the BJP .

"I planned on being the toughest guy in the world, but then we had this person come on and tell us that he was homeless", Richie said. She's obviously got a nice voice and her hyper personality won't be forgotten anytime soon. And given all the Disney pixie dust - or wait, is that just glitter from Katy Perry's eye shadow? - that's been sprinkled all over the whole endeavor, the new Idol often may make you want to gag even while it's coaxing tears out of your ducts. So Harper is known as he worst National Anthem singer (keep in mind this was filmed before Fergie's recent rendition).

Catie, a 17-year-old high school student from Langhorne, PA, sang an original song on her guitar called "21st Century Machine". Now, that's the kind of country song that I could hear on the radio. A record deal followed, but there were so many starts and stops she didn't really get noticed until a song of hers was featured on the soundtrack to "The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants". I'm really excited by her potential on this show, and I can see her doing well. With everything he's been through, he can use that pain to tell a story in his performances.

Facts on prototypes of Trump's border wall
In California, just 22% of voters approved of the job Trump was doing as president in a USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll in November; 66% disapproved.

Whether that's a good thing depends on your taste for unified, chummy bunches. 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. "I think their job is to see if they can get me to faint before the show is over". Not every American Idol victor has this sort of story and that is perfectly fine; it's just important for a show like this to have a wide array of different stories to better show the wide array of different people who are out there in America. When we talk about vocal talents on these singing competition shows, a voice like Alyssa's is what we all hope to find. All of the judges love her voice so they vote her through and she has an entire clan waiting for her! The show began with auditions in Orlando in which hopefuls come into a room, perform in front of the three judges, and they decide whether the contestant is worthy to head to Hollywood.

"Whether you're eight or 88, you feel as if he has been a part of your life", says Rob Mills, SVP of alternative series, specials and late night. It's all good for the brand. As promised, the episode on Sunday did not highlight bad auditions. Did Alyssa's lovely voice stand out to you? Big sister, who she looks up to, auditions with 'Who's Loving You?' which she credits to The Jackson 5 and not Smokey Robinson and The Miracles.
