American Idol still has clout.

The new "American Idol", hosted by Ryan Seacrest, airs Sundays and Mondays on ABC at 8 p.m. Auditions continue tonight with judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan. As My San Antonio explains, Adam first popped up a few seasons back, but American Idol spoilers share that in this current appearance, viewers will seemingly see the singer performing within the drag queen persona Ada Vox. It will be interesting to see if American Idol can regain the stature it once had in its early years.

The show was the most-viewed program of the night, earning a 2.3 rating in the crucial category of 18-49-year-olds and outpacing ABC's projection in that age bracket. "It's not your language, it's just for us", Perry told her fellow judges, making Davis blush. I give that audition a A- and they give her a golden ticket! "We don't have to convince ourselves that this sounds good - it just does", Katy says. Her voice was technically strong, but she was a little too loose with her ad libs. That was 6 years ago, so she's a better singer now. Spoilers tease that this will be a season jam-packed with talent, and fans can not wait to see how things progress with these Top 24 performers. Back to the audition.

Ron, a 21-year-old entrepreneur originally from Congo who now resides in Plano, TX, sang "Let It Go" by James Bay. He had a surprising crooner voice, but Bryan wanted to hear more attitude from him.

"You have Sinatra down, but remember this: Sinatra waited. She was always interested in music, I just saw that spark in her and just kept pushing her in that direction", Dennis Raghunandan said. The judges seem uncertain.

So, judge Katy Perry invited the teen over to the desk and urged him to plant a kiss on her cheek. An hour later, Lionel Richie changes his mind and has Ron brought back.

Next up was Maddie Poppe, singing "The Rainbow Connection" by the Carpenters. That earned her three yeses.

Koby is 26 years old from Denver, Colorado, and is a theater performer. Her audition is a memorable one as she wears a black "Rebel" t-shirt, white short-shorts, and knee-high velvet boots. Is she worth this much coin?

"I know, wig, I feel that already", Perry said. The woman embarrasses herself all the way out the door. She performed her own song titled "21st Century Machine", which received a compliment from Richie.

The auditions then head to Nashville, where we meet 16-year-old Harper Grace. "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional".

"I've always thought that she was special". But I'd give it D. But the judges loved him. She is also the first to receive a golden ticket to Hollywood.
