You were just crooning away in your own world and we were all sucked into it. Whether ABC's gamble on the mother of all singing competitions proves to be a ratings hit or not, one thing is for certain: Katy Perry gives the reboot both the dazzle factor and gravitas it needed to work.

Now in Los Angeles, California for auditions and we get flashbacks of the judges in their younger years.

Next up was William Casanova, singing "A Song For You" by Donny Hathaway. Big sister, who she looks up to, auditions with "Who's Loving You?" which she credits to The Jackson 5 and not Smokey Robinson and The Miracles.

During Monday night's episode, Perry had similar antics up her sleeve. Ukrainian singer-songwriter-rapper Misha Gontar. Luke approves of Katy's love because according to Luke, Trevor is a dreamboat. He accompanied himself on the guitar, and the judges were smitten-especially Perry, who flirted back a bit. Following Francisco's audition, he successfully received a golden ticket to Hollywood, securing his spot for the next round in the competition.

In New Orleans, Laine Hardy sang "Hurricane", playing guitar and adding a lot of rasp.

Perry kept up the self-deprecating humor throughout the episode, joking with Bryan and Richie that she was "looking for a date". He secured a golden ticket easily.

1990s Rapper Craig Mack Dead at 46
Bad Boy was a close family, "brothers and sisters by love and not blood", Joyce said, and Mack was an integral part of that. Craig sadly suffered from heart failure and passed away near his home in SC on March 12, Alvin revealed to the Daily News .

Watson, 17, said she grew up in a town (Apache is in Caddo County) where you know everybody on a first- and last-name basis.

After Katy's amusing fumble aired, fans quickly took to Twitter to ask the performer if she is OK. Jones was thrilled to get a golden ticket. The judges later gave Michelle a "yes".

Thaddeus sang "Don't You Worry Child" by Swedish House Mafia. And all three artists made it to the Hollywood.

When David Francisco popped into the American Idol audition room, the judges didn't know what to expect after he admitted that he'd been hit by a auto and lost all function of his legs after he moved to Nashville to pursue his music dreams.

Katy Perry slips after her dance battle. The judges didn't even bother to come to a vote-this kid was in. For some reason, the song didn't sound recognizable to me at first. But Katy was swift and deliberate from the start - hardly the "fun" notes and vibe Luke Bryan said he thought she'd bring in the opening segment. Let's all hope Katy Perry's prediction rings true and that we'll watch our Jersey Girl go far on American Idol! In Nashville, while riding his bicycle, he was hit by a vehicle that ran a red light. Now he's able to walk with the help of crutches. It's a powerful display that moves Katy to tears.

American Idol airs Mondays and Tuesdays at 8PM ET/PT, and we'll be keeping an eye on how Luke does.as well as standout performances.
