Welcome back, "American Idol": Luke, Katy & Lionel find talent in four cities

LATE NIGHT WITH SETH MEYERS — Episode 655

The "Idol" opening numbers were better than all but two of the telecasts during Fox's final season of the show, including the January 6, 2016 season opener, which was seen by 11 million people, Nielsen said. The show definitely helped to launch the new drama Deception, which ranked No.1 in its 10 p.m. time slot in 18-49 (1.3) beating the premiere of Timeless on NBC by 63 percent in the demographic.

During the premiere of American Idol, Noah Davis, a contestant from Arkansas, used a word that had many people scratching their heads.

There, they will face another round of auditions and eliminations.

Some American Idol spoiler lists originally included Lane Hardy in the Top 24, but not Dominique Posey. Ryan Seacrest, recently accused of sexual assault by a former stylist (a charge he denies), is still the host, and in the premiere episode claims he's "waited a lifetime for this", which is hard to believe given that babies born in 2002, when Seacrest began hosting Idol, will be able to vote in the next presidential election. "Come here, Benjamin. Come here right now!" she directed.

Channing Dungey, ABC entertainment president, and Cecile Frot-Coutaz, Freemantle Media CEO said in a recent statement that they are standing by Seacrest.

17-year-old Garrett Jacobs did his grandma, Honey, proud with his audition and even though she couldn't be there in-person, the judges made sure he got her on the phone to hear he was on his way to Hollywood! He seems to be very robust in his defense.

Last, we see 19-year-old socially awkward cashier, Benjamin Glaze. She gets thee yeses and a golden ticket to Hollywood. Just don't forget to cancel your trial if you don't want to get charged $20. Katy said Harper's voice hasn't reached its "ultimate potential" yet but she'd be a dream for Hollywood to carve out. "But to change the show drastically in terms of format, I think, would be a mistake".

While the show had seen its share of judges from the original panel of Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Simon Cowell to newcomers like Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez, it's safe to say it also had its share of comical moments. And 16-year-old Harper Grace landed a well-deserved ticket to Hollywood after she confessed that she went viral at age 11 for a truly awful rendition of the national anthem.
