"American Idol" auditions conclude with a former contestant's eye-opening return

"She doesn't care what anyone thinks and I admire her for that", fellow contestant Zach D'Onofrio said.

Luke thought the singer was "quirky" and "tremendous", and Katy admitted her artistic sound works for her - when it typically doesn't work for other artists. I didn't get any feedback from the judges. "I mean, you're just cruising along, touching the top, and there's more after that top". "I knew it was my dream and I knew that I wanted to fight for it with everything that I had". Carly received a golden ticket with three yeses because of her "full, beautiful, folky" voice.

Finn's original audition was not shown on TV, but she's expected to appear in the next week's "Hollywood Week" episodes on "American Idol".

Ward's audition wasn't featured on Sunday's show.

The panel also fell in love with Carly Moffa, whose quirky personality impressed them as much as her voice.

Back in November, ET caught up with the judges before auditions kicked off, and all three agreed that one of their biggest tips to hopefuls is to not try and sing the judges' famous songs.

"Because here is the thing - we have heard those songs so many times, day in and day out", Perry admitted. "I love all these people honestly they are all my real close friends and students that I love a lot, I'm just so grateful".

But she can sing, too.

Gabby didn't have a country voice, so she chose to belt out a church song for the judges in attempt to show whom she'd be as an artist on American Idol.
