American Idol: Michelle Sussett, 22, Was "Living Hopeless In Venezuela"

Even Lionel gives props to the kid: "If this is what you do at 15, I'm afraid of you".

Going higher: William Casanova works in women's shoes as his regular job and his heartfelt version of Leon Russell's "A Song for You" by Donny Hathaway had Katy Perry so moved that she wriggled right out of her shoes, giving a toe touch and a golden ticket.

Seems like only yesterday when the curtain came down on "Idol" after Fox decided it wanted to take a break from the show, but ABC chose to revive the show and introduced a new panel of judges that featured Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryant to spruce things up, CNN reported. At one point, she and the rest of the judges stood up from their chairs and joined a contestant to dance to Selena's "Techno Cumbia". Luke, 41, joked as he and Lionel, 68, rushed over to help Katy get off the ground. "I haven't met anyone from the 2000s!" The "Hello" legend certainly seems to be telling truth when we meet steel-blue-eyed Laine Hardy, 17, a young guy from the Bayou whose smoldering performance of Band of Heathens' "Hurricane" causes Luke to announce, "I think if you ain't careful, you might win American Idol". "It happened to me", she says, no doubt inspiring millions of smiles.

American Idol is in the second day of auditions and what I like so far is that the judges are not filled with drama (ala Nicki Minaj and Mariah Carey) and they aren't mean (ala Simon Cowell). Michelle still got her golden ticket, though.

Misha Gontar, 26, Marengo, Illinois: Originally from the Ukraine, Misha sang a super-catchy but incredibly weird song that featured an "oo-ee-oh/bow bow bow" chant and speed-rapping in what we assume was Ukranian. That brought Katy to tell him that he can come hang out with her anytime. But for now, Idol hopefuls just have to get through a quick audition in front of the three judges and get two out of three to vote in their favor. Luke approves of Katy's love because according to Luke, Trevor is a dreamboat. I'd rather listen than watch her perform. Laine's voice sounds much older than his young age indicates. David Francisco, 25, lives in Nashville, Tennessee and was hit by a vehicle and paralyzed from the waist down. Luke calls him "Bad Ass" and thinks he'll grow into a better singer. I'm really intrigued by his voice and hope that he can keep this up in future rounds because if he can, he could go far (in the same way that Brandon has the potential to go far too).
