American Idol 2018 Season Premiere Recap: The Big Return

"Snow White has never been made into a live-action movie".

Tonight's show is going to be an exciting one, which I'm not going to miss and neither should you. She's obviously got a nice voice and her hyper personality won't be forgotten anytime soon. "I love the sound of your voice", Richie said, comparing Turner to a martian. Katie asks to see Harper's dream board that she brought in and writes on it, she gets three yes votes.

Now a judge on "American Idol", Perry says the person who is likely to win the competition - and have a career - is "just such an authentic person you can hear it in (his or her) voice". While the zombie apocalypse drama last week eked out its worst numbers in seven years-you'd have to go all the way back to the fifth episode (Nov. 28, 2010) in order to find an installment of "Walking Dead" that averaged a lower demo delivery than last Sunday's 2.9-AMC's flagship series still beats out everything else on the tube in the target audience. They will come back to Hollywood and then they'll have to step up.

"The voices in my head want to sing on 'American Idol", a patient confides to his shrink in a 2006 Leo Cullum panel, proof of its cultural imprint. Now after ten years and a lot of aging and learning, I can take all that information and really mentor and give constructive criticism, because that's really what we do. She said, "For me personally, American Idol and I have always been circling each other, and it just hasn't been the right timing". I think there's been a lot of talk about how is this show different.

Part of the process of finding contestants has to do with talent, but there's also a human element. She's straight-up country should've sang something country.

"I am very serious about it". I do the jokes.

At Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida, we get a taste of the best and worst Idol has to offer. "I've thought about it and said, "Well, how many people are going to read it?' And then I thought about 'Idol" and I got the call, thank God". Half the people in the world can sing.

You might not see this coming from the network that only this week broadcast the footage of a woman being dumped by her fiancé on The Bachelor for the supposed entertainment of millions, but ABC's Idol - so far - looks to be a kinder, gentler version than Fox's. She is a musical theater performer but brought her own song.

Note to aspiring artists: Don't even think of singing a Katy Perry song in front of Katy Perry.

Next up is a man who escaped from the Congo with his family when he was only 10 years old. Watch clips and full episodes of American Idol for free on Yahoo View. Will they be able to compete in what's become a bit of a crowded genre?

But on Friday Lionel Richie revealed that the rebooted series might also harbor some prickly interactions between the judges. It's got great things about it and it's got not-so-great things about it. "We need you in this show", Richie said.

In Perry's case, use that attention to try and get a role as a fairy princess that you have always wanted to play.
