David Spratt That's my niece! She is amazing and has the biggest heart ever! so proud. keep watching!!! and lets make her dream come true
Cassandra Spears I am so glad that Luke told her to disregard all the negativity on social media. That shows you really can’t judge a book by it’s cover. I thought she was just playing but she did a good job to me.
She has lots of energy and I want to see what more she has.
Betty Logsdon I love seeing the "socially awkward" go for it all in spite of the fear they feel everytime they face the public! The face turns red, the body moves with awkward jerks and jitters and forward …MARCH right through it all. I love it!
Margaret Scoville Man he was so right to tell her not to go on here and other sites, some of you are just hateful people. She has a very beautiful voice, might not be what you like, but some enjoyed it. That song was awesome. If she doesn't become a singer, she just might become a song writer.
Karen Feliciano When she first walked in I honestly thought it was going to be a catastrophe. Then she started playing the guitar and opened her mouth I was pleasantly surprised. She’s brilliant. She’s what the world needs. Looks can be deceiving. She’s the next American Idol!
Sometimes when you ask the universe for what you want, the universe delivers

Heather Nelson Put that song”YARD SALE” on the radio ASAP- what a catchy tune!!!
Lindsey Baugh Idk why people have to be so mean. I mean she was only 10, she had a lot of guts for going out and singing in front of so many people. It shows that come backs are possible and I applaud her.
Mistianna Holcomb Barnes I absolutely loved Harper Grace’s song about Heartbreak Retail and “Having A Yard sale” she reminds me of a young Taylor Swift- incredible song writing skills and an incredible artist- a new country star for sure!
Leah Hicks Yard sale sounded a lot like Chainsaw from The Band Perry. Good lyric's, but it's already been done. She has also come a long way from her anthem preformance, but I'd say she still has a way's to go.
Nancy Jean Long Blah, blah, yak, yak,talk, talk…..Why do they have to talk Soo much!!. Can't we just listen to the singers and judge them?. Why do we have to know all about their lives?…..
Noah Davis puts a sweet spin on Rihanna's "Stay" for his American Idol audition in front of Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

Ron Henderson I thought he was going to ask Lionel if the alpaca chased him All Night Long.
Denzel Denluvva Stapleton Am I the only one that noticed the difference in his voice when he sang? He went from “It’s raining men! Hallelujah!” to “It’s Mr. Steal Your Girl” real quick!
Josefa Concepcion Shields Wig is a term used to describe when someone does something (In their opinion) that is so good that they go bald.
Urban dictionary definition… Maybe this is what they meant
Michele Hayden Googled WIG:
It's a language that sometimes the kids and I speak, it's a little bit internet language," Katy told Jimmy. "But basically when somebody sings really well, and they SING, you know, they sing so well that the wig fly's off."
"Sometimes the glue isn't strong enough to hold the vibrations and the wig fly's all across the room.
Lisa Schwenn This young man brought tears to my eyes. Kind soul, and sang that song beautifully. Wish I knew what wig means…
This one’s for all the daddy’s girls out there

Henrietta Chimere Now this is what I call talented at 15 this young lady is going places!!!! Beautiful voice and look love it
Love Laura When you back up your child with love and support….you get a star that shoots in the air and blessed the world!
Megan Kruse Top 10 for sure! Won’t be surprised at all if she wins. Beautiful voice!
Mara's got us like.

Kellie Bookless Beautiful voice! But I'm hearing a lot of that same tone nowadays. I hope they help her with her facial expressions. Pretty girl, but hard to watch.
Sadie Quackenbush Being pretty is not the rent she owes for existing. Her faces are raw expression and power. She's not trying to be pretty and sexy, she is trying to manipulate her voice and she's driving that voice with emotion.
Chrystal Phillips She FELT THAT!!! Shiiiiit, I felt it! Baby girl brought that from the souls of her feet, through her gut – & out her mouth!! She's a baby but I think we're looking at top 3 here, if not the winner. She has passion, raw vulnerability, & can be molded. This competition will shape her & make her rise to the occasion. By golly, I think she's got it.
Erica Stolte "when were you born, ninety…oh you're born in the two thousands…" *falls down* SAME KATY SAME when I meet people born in the 2000s
Dee Christianson Volz I have watched American Idol for years and these judges are the best by far. Love that they have some fun.

Rachel Foster 5 years from now… Katy Perry and husband Trevor expecting their first child.
Phyllis O'Neill Katy Perry in a position of power. Not cool to talk to this contestant this way. Imagine if it was a male judge talking that way to a female contestant.
Amanda Lee The gf went out of her way to just make a fool out of herself, no need to need take his joy away let him shine and enjoy his moment while Katy was making him smile as well
Ugh females like that are just annoying
Caitlyn Smith Right! If my husband went on there and Katy said all that I would be stoked! that's a huge compliment! I'd run in just to hug her! and smack him if he didn't huge her!
Jennifer Gee Gee Clark That gf was insecure! She was hangin' onto him like a spider monkey!
Misty Layne Harrington His girlfriend will be history if he makes it all the way thru..
All of America is crying
David Francisco auditions for American Idol with Stevie Wonder's "Isn't She Lovely" in front of Judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.
Rhonda Morelock I am currently in a physical therapy rehab in TN. Have been told I'll never walk but like him I saw that movement and am pressing in. Can now move even more. Not walking yet but not going to give up. So honored to hear this testimony.
Michelle Drinkard This was so seeet!!! I swear these are the best judges American idol has ever had, they’re so fun, entertaining and super sweet!
Jessica Lyn Erler One of the best women are the ones who stand behind their men when they even go to the lowest point of their lives! He is absolutely amazing! I felt as he sang this for his woman!
Tammy Bland Hinchey That guy has already won something American Idol can’t ever give… true- pure love! Amazing story!! Rooting for him!!
Justin Keeley I came into this new season not looking forward to the judges, but they’ve been surprising great, friendly, and loving. Especially Katy Perry.
Love your voice… I'll be rooting you on from Orlando.
I'm a Mom of 5 and I too was hit by a distracted driver on my bicycle 5 weeks ago so your story hits home with me. I'm recovering from 4 broken bones in my leg and surgery. Your story is so inspiring… especially when I have my down periods as I still cannot walk for another 7 weeks but I know I'll get there too. Thankful we are both still around to reach our dreams. I'll be ROOTING YOU ON Week after week as you sing and I recover…

Brittany Banta So proud of my baby brother!!! He killed it!!! Can’t wait to see more!!! Such a proud proud sister!
Jan Fredericks Not feeling it – all the alligator/hunting stuff is ignorant. Miss the original judges. Please keep the 'country' lingo to yourself. Hopefully, someone who is compassionate to animals will win.
Laci Deshae First of all don’t be jealous. Second of all, alligator is dangerous and hunting them keepers the population down. Third of all alligator is delicious… so is deer… like the Bambi you have in your cover photo mmmm deer sausage!
Josie Leigh Like Luke said, if he’s not careful, he’ll win American Idol! I’m still in awe of that raw talent from down south!! I. Can’t wait to watch him soar!!! And hear his songs!
MaryAnn Jarrod Wood Just give Layne Hardy a contract and get his album out this kid was AWSOME!!! I had to rewind it 3 times just to keep hearing him sing again.
Experience the life-changing journey of this contestant on AmericanIdol

Brooklin Beasley Can we start a Gofundme for this lovely human being? He deserves a break and support financially. Bless you for giving this child a stable, loving life.
Cassandra Corrine It's amazing that he took his nephew in but to call himself father and son is a little weird. He should be one proud uncle!
Marcio Donaldson I appreciate all the love, thank you guys it's been tough but I made it my mission to never give up!
Camille Soexcited Sutters Am I the only one who’s mad!? I really wanted to see him sing! And the way that baby looks at him… omg the love just poured out my heart
Tara Ann Moe I have taken care of both my nephew (now 23) and my niece (now 13) for the majority of their lives. There is no greater gift in my life than those two. I am proud of this young man and know the journey he is taking far too well.
You’re going to want to call your mom after this one
Brandon Elder auditions for American Idol in front of Judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie with an original song called "Gone."

Mark Ondracek Jr. Dude where can I get the full version of the song??? I will pay for this loved it. Keep up the good work.
Imanda Transa Kertapati I didn't mean to be disrespectful but, does all of the stories on american idol are even real? I mean, how all of the stories are really a hard time to go through. Or maybe i am just a 27 years old loser who didn't have much experience in life yet.
Kevin Johnson I disagree 100% with Lionel and Katy. His voice was incredible and his song writing skills matched it. Like Lionel said, when you hear a song one time and can completely understand the story and even relate you accomplished what many professionals dream of doing.
Shannon Leigh Turney I’ve known Brandon since he was in the 9th grade. I’ve had him in class and he graduated and played ball with my oldest son. I can tell you this young man is polite and so humble, genuine and great all the way around!! We love you Brandon and so hope all of your dreams come true!
Jaron N Heather Reed He does an amazing job singing in our small town and we're all proud of how far you've come. All the way
Jimmy Moriarty His voice reminds me a lot of Matchbox Twenty, absolutely pure, yet he has that raspiness touch to it that gives it that uniqueness. If they teach him to be able to sing as loud as like a Chris Daughtry, this guy will be the real deal. Great voice
