American Idol relaunch on ABC now streaming on Hulu

And while that's a fraction of the audience "Idol" regularly served up back in its mid-aughts heyday, the TV turnout marked a significant upgrade for ABC's Sunday 8-10 p.m. lineup, which season-to-date is averaging just 4.5 million viewers and a 1.0 in the demo.

Perry joined a new panel of judges that includes singer-songwriter Lionel Richie and country star Luke Bryan. The crop of talent was better than that of The Voice and The X-Factor and the format, with intimate auditions set in across the U.S., allowed for the contestants' real, observable growth. Before last night's reboot, those two hours of ABC's Sunday night roster served as a placeholder for the 28-year-old "America's Funniest Home Videos" and the transplanted "Shark Tank".

"I really wanna go to Hollywood really bad", Underwood said, not knowing she would go on to bigger and better things, including the 2007 Grammy for best new artist. Once the two men helped Perry to her feet, Richie stated, "Some things you have to do for the business". In a good way. "And we'll see where it all goes".

"I really enjoyed meeting you today", Perry told him. Lionel was "fascinated" by her brain.

Her next step? Heading back to Nashville. Richie and Perry agreed.

This American Idol retains the show's original host, Ryan Seacrest, along with the same logo and production companies. Just don't forget to cancel your trial if you don't want to get charged $20. He started playing guitar when he was 16 years old.

Alyssa's story on 'American Idol' featured her father, Dennis Raghunandan, and the close relationship they have forged. From there, he got a girlfriend, with whom he has a child, and began pursuing his dream. "They are so out of control", he said. I feel like it's a prerequisite. So, I don't think it'd be fair to put you in that kind of competition. Still, though, the judges were impressed. "You are the reason I am here, '" Lorenzo recalled later. Fortunately, Noah also brought a stand-out performance of Rihanna's "Stay" that snatched Katy's wig and sent Noah with it to Hollywood.
