More Talented Artists Audition In Hopes Of Being Sent To Hollywood

It's possible they said no to hundreds of singers, but in two hours we saw exactly four noes - and Lionel turned into a hugging machine.

For the final audition of the night, David Francisco sang "Isn't She Lovely". Now he's able to walk with the help of crutches. ABC rebooted the longtime Fox network show with new judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.

Rissa Watson, 17, Apache, Oklahoma: Rissa's from a tiny town where everyone knows everyone.

And just like that Mara, a 15-year-old phenom from Galloway Township in Atlantic County, was on to Hollywood with her coveted Golden Ticket.

The judging panel agreed Michelle should get a shot to go to Hollywood, but Katy wasn't entirely convinced Michelle could compete with the level of talent they had already found. He gave the performance his all, but the judges decided not to send him on to Hollywood for the next round of competition.

Lane Hardy, 17, Livingston, Louisiana: A true country boy, he sang "Hurricane" by Band of Heathens and won the judges over with his soulful, gritty style.

Trevor Holmes, 27, captivated Katy's attention and later revealed that he's had a longtime crush on her, though he now has a girlfriend.

"All I can tell you about the next step is it's incredible and I can't wait for you guys to see it", Alyssa Raghu said. He secured a golden ticket easily.

Up next is Brandon Diaz, who is auditioning in honor of his father, a singer who immigrated to America from Cuba. Katy declared he could be "top 10", and called him "the best male singer we've seen so far".

Michelle Sussett, a 22-year-old from Venezuela, who now resides in Miami, FL, sang, danced a little salsa and really entertained with her performance of Selena's "Techno Cumbia". As she was dancing, Perry lost her balance, taking a tumble and exposing herself to the judges in the process. They all got golden tickets. But it was his day job that had the judges fascinated.

She eventually managed to get to her feet and pull her dress down. She sang a rendition of "Almost is Never Enough" by Ariana Grande and finished her audition in tears.

Next up was William Casanova, singing "A Song For You" by Donny Hathaway. It was a no.
