The Death Star No Longer, 'American Idol' Still Draws a Crowd

13 March 2018

A nervous Benjamin Glaize began his audition with a grilling from judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and country singer Luke Bryan.

Since singing competition shows are television's most inexhaustible genre, American Idol is back after a blink-and-you-missed-it two years off the air.

It was still a plus for ABC.

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.

ABC says the Deception premiere was its best scripted bow in the time period since the beginning of Quantico in September of 2015.

It's the same feedback she got almost 10 years ago, when she made it to Hollywood on the show. Katy said Harper's voice hasn't reached its "ultimate potential" yet but she'd be a dream for Hollywood to carve out. "We're not really sure where you fit in the mainstream.' And, I guess my response to that is, I really never have fit in the mainstream, it's really not where I plan to go with my music".

On the second season of the show, the confident 23-year-old shocked the judges with his rendition of "Always and Forever".

The program was seen by 4.4 million viewers from 8 to 10 p.m.

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 thought I was going to be the authority... but, no, no, I am the Kindergarten teacher. I can understand why any of the singers I mentioned above would be someone's favorite because I'm looking forward to seeing what they do next as well. "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional". The judges believe she has the vocal chops, but want her to prepare herself for the rigors and disappoints of the biz.
