ABC's American Idol reboot has just premiered, and people are anxious to see how this revived show does. Let's take a look at the auditions showcased on the first night of Idol's return. She gets a ticket to Hollywood.

Auditions were held in New York, Nashville, Los Angeles and Orlando.

Ron Boltongez captivated the judges with his story, especially Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

But their careers didn't end there.

Who was your favorite? The banter, the bartering, and the competition between the judges consistently overtake the proceedings on "The Voice", and even Kelly Clarkson [VIDEO] voiced reservations about the 2018 incarnation of the competition that she took in the first year, going head-to-head with her current station on "The Voice". Viewers reportedly will see Gabby Barrett, Jurnee Siani, Kay Kay Alexis, and Layla Spring in this group, along with singers Maddie Poppe, Mara Justine, Michelle Sussett, and Shannon O'Hara.

China advises US-North Korea to initiate denuclearisation talks
It was not clear in Wang's comments which parties might be insincere about coming to a solution - possibly all of them. China has responded positively to the developments, as one would expect.

Catie with a "C" got true love from Katy with a "K" and songwriting praise from Lionel Richie. That was 6 years ago, so she's a better singer now.

"I've known Ryan now for nearly 16 years". You know it seems a little not soft - I do try and watch myself because I do know how it feels to be in their shoes. She's headed to Hollywood! Sixteen-year-old Harper Grace is known for her viral video of one of the worst performances of the national anthem, but she got some redemption during her Idol audition. I am really impressed with her songwriting skills. Luckily, her somewhat over-the-top rendition of Ariana Grande's "Dangerous Woman" was enough to convince the judges to save her from a life of drudgery and send her to Hollywood.

Layla, a 16-year-old high school student from Marion County, KY, performed "Who's Lovin' You" by the Jackson Five. She's next in line to inherit her family's furniture store, but won't have to if she can make it as a singer. Katy tells her she's not a pop star. He gets a golden ticket. A Katy Perry kissThe judges discovered that Benjamin Glaze, 19, had never been kissed after Luke Bryan asked "Have you kissed a girl and liked it?" and he confessed that he never had. Dyxie got one, too, valid starting in 2026, and she won over several new fans.

William Casanova, 26, Washington, DC: A woman's shoe salesman, he charmed the judges with his smooth, flirtatious personality, and earned a golden ticket by singing Donny Hathaway's "A Song For You". What did you think of this dynamic trio after the first episode?
