Orlando resident snags a golden ticket to Hollywood on 'American Idol'

Before claiming the Idol title in season four, Carrie Underwood was just an Oklahoma farm girl who had never flown in a plane before. "I'm excited to feel the emotions that made me fall in love with music". "I don't want the outside world to mess with your handsome brain", Bryan urged 17-year-old Catie Turner, a songwriter who admitted people often view her as too "intense".

In the end, even his kiss with Katy wasn't enough to secure him a spot in the next round, as the judges eventually chose to pass on Benjamin. "I can not tell you how wonderful it is to see you. It's pretty special", Bryan said.

Despite the sexual allegations against Ryan Seacrest, he is also back to host the show.

"Gone are the embarrassingly bad auditions that would go viral on Fox's American Idol and increased are the inspirational stories the Disney-owned network is hoping will go viral in a more positive way", Chris Harnick of E!

Upon that admission, Katy told the teenager, "Come here right now!" An entire montage showed the judges gently trying to cheer up singers who didn't get a golden ticket to Hollywood. The 10 p.m. premiere lost 43 percent of its "Idol" lead-in, but in drawing 6.1 million viewers and a 1.3 in the 18-to-49 demo, "Deception" wiped the floor with NBC's returning sci-fi effort "Timeless" (0.9) and CBS's veteran Beltway potboiler "Madam Secretary" (0.8).

Lorenzo capped Sunday's episode, telling Seacrest in his interview that he started playing at music when he was 16 because of "some rough things I was dealing with" at the time.

It's been a long American Idol journey and one that's opened a lot of doors for Julica.

More than 12 hours after arriving at auditions, she met Lionel Richie, Katy Perry and Luke Bryan face to face.

"I have a disgusting feeling that could be a hit", he said, walking away. Auditions were done to enable the vocalists to showcase their talents. "It's not your language it's just for us".

Security soon dealt with Rey, but he went down in Idol history as one of the few to get their revenge on Cowell.

Hudson shockingly came in seventh place on that season, but since proved herself a true idol, with a best R&B album Grammy win and an Oscar-earning role in Dreamgirls.

American Idol show was aired for less than 2 years and ended up its 15 seasons on FOX.
