'American Idol' 2018 ABC Premiere: How To Watch and What You Need To Know

Now, on its new home ABC, the popular singing competition premiered on Sunday, March 11, in search for the next Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.

It won't make anyone forget the early incarnation of "American Idol" that struck so much fear in the heats of rival programmers that they would refer to it in hushed tones as "the Death Star", but ABC's revival of the once-colossal musical competition series delivered strong numbers for a Sunday night in 2018.

But this time, Julica had her biggest supporter with her, her 2-year-old daughter Mikova. "Everyone was crying. I was crying and then Luke Bryan came out, and he shakes my mom and dad's hand and says, 'You birthed a attractive mind, ' and all of that stuff". "Obviously it's unfortunate. I'm not privy to the details".

Some minor detail did change, however. She gets a ticket to Hollywood. I'd give the audition about a C- but I do really like her. But Alyssa proved what I've said countless times - it doesn't matter how old you are because talent is talent. "At the end I was exhausted, I was really emotional, I was kind of angry". The Texas teen hoped her audition on last night's show would redeem her. He does not get the golden ticket - at first.

When Benjamin told the judges that he hadn't kissed a girl, as he couldn't do so without being in a relationship, Katy Perry asked him to come over to her desk for his first kiss. Now 16, this country music singer came into the audition room and performed an original song called "Yard Sale".
