This "American Idol" contestant's first kiss was with judge Katy Perry

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655

We'll be back tomorrow night with more auditions. While the judges originally decided Bultongez didn't have an artistic identity after he sang James Bay's "Let It Go", Richie felt guilty and wound up changing his vote to "yes".

But when he belted out "The Way You Look Tonight" by Frank Sinatra, the judges were amazed by the depth of his sound and the richness in his voice. Eventually, she stuck out her foot, put the golden ticket between her toes and made William come and take it. These new judges seem to be up for drawing blood as well.

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 made a decision 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.

THR adds that Fox "certainly tried to sabotage ABC's plan to relaunch its former flagship". They decide to give him his ticket to Hollywood.

Next up was Maddie Poppe, singing "The Rainbow Connection" by the Carpenters. With that being said, Harper received three yeses from the judges.

Its poor air safety record has been blamed largely on inadequate maintenance, inexperienced pilots and substandard management. At the end of the conversation, the controller yells, "I say again, turn!", before fire trucks are ordered on to the runway.

Koby is 26 years old from Denver, Colorado, and is a theater performer.

The "Swish Swish" singer continued to hit on Trevor, 27, during his audition, inviting him to hang out with her and asking him if he's engaged - but he does have a girlfriend. When Harper was 11, she became an Internet laughingstock for singing what was considered the "worst national anthem ever". She's a little too much and Katy tells her she's not a pop star. To those who might think that may I remind you about brutal this show can be. The woman embarrasses herself all the way out the door. She performed "Rainbow Connection" and impressed the judges. However, Lionel apparently couldn't get Ron out of his head following the audition, so the panel called Ron back into the room about an hour later and revealed he'd by flying to Hollywood for a second chance. I was in their shoes 10 years ago. "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional. I was pretty excited to hear her say that". I like Lionel as a judge so far.

Jokes aside, it really was all fun and games and, in the end, the judges gave Sussett a golden ticket to Hollywood, because they thought she was super fun.

After Simon Cowell left the original show, the infamous "bad auditions" - particularly those where awful singers were viciously mocked by the judges - mostly disappeared from the format.
