'American Idol' return is a big hit

"American Idol" returned after almost two years with a solid debut on a different network on Sunday night, drawing 10.3 million viewers and getting a nod from many critics, Variety reported.

Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap. When Glaze leaned in to kiss her cheek, Perry quickly turned her head to achieve lip-to-lip contact, sending Glaze to the ground and delighting fellow judges Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

In the March 11 premiere, viewers witnessed talent from all over auditioning in Los Angeles, New York City, Savannah, and New Orleans.

Sunday night marked a monumental return for singing competition American Idol.

There were also multiple heartwrenching backstories: 22-year-old Ron Bultongez talked about coping with his abusive father.

Perry said that while she is blunt and "very cut and dry" when it comes to critiquing the contestants, she has a line she refuses to cross. It was then that Sussett asked the judges to stand up and dance with her.

The first night of auditions was rough.

Clearly stunned by what had just happened, Benjamin fell to the floor open-mouthed, as Katy celebrated by raising her arms in the air and getting high fives from Lionel and Luke. But while Katy respected his story, she couldn't get a grasp on who he is as an artist.

"Every once in a while, a Martian lands, and we happen to see the Martian", Richie said. Like Turner, Lorenzo says Katy Perry is HIS idol. The judges were going gaga over Alyssa - and for good reason. But he really blows them away once he sits down at the piano and begins a soulful rendition of "Stay" by Rihanna.

At Disney Springs in Orlando, Florida, we get a taste of the best and worst Idol has to offer.

A quick trip back to NY, and it's a "yes" for 16-year-old Zach Denofrio, who has a high-pitched speaking voice but turns into a Frank Sinatra-type crooner when he sings.

He auditioned with a cover of Allen Stone's "Unaware", playing a beat up guitar with a hole in its top.
