Once-Paralyzed Singer Makes Katy Perry Weep On 'American Idol'

Once-Paralyzed Singer Makes Katy Perry Weep On 'American Idol'

ABC's "American Idol" continued its two-night premiere Monday with two more hours of auditions, and judges Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie were handing out golden tickets like it was going out of style. The show's judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan were shown critiquing each aspiring singer and determining whether he or she should receive a golden ticket to Hollywood, CA.

The 19-year-old cashier told judges Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan that he had yet to experience his first kiss. But at least during the "Idol" audition rounds, the singer made it clear she was single and ready to mingle.

Katy soon solved this though as she beckoned him over and let him plant a smacker on her cheek. "I haven't met anyone from the 2000s!" It may not be something to cause a massive commotion about, but in the era of Time's Up it is a question we should pose: If we wouldn't accept such behaviour from a man, then why do we think it is fine from a woman?

When she isn't sharing her special, unique talent of looking like a frog, the 32-year-old pop star is taking her responsibilities as a judge incredibly serious on the show.

Said Perry: "You have been through a lot".

Rissa doesn't want to sell furniture and made a decision to give her musical dream a shot on "American Idol". It seems like she has the pipes to stick around a while.

Misha Gontar, 26, Marengo, Illinois: Originally from the Ukraine, Misha sang a super-catchy but incredibly weird song that featured an "oo-ee-oh/bow bow bow" chant and speed-rapping in what we assume was Ukranian. It was clear William was battling a case of nervous, but the judges had no complaints and decided on a unanimous "yes" to send him to Hollywood. "Come here, Benjamin. Come here right now!" she said.

Less heartwarming is Katy's quest to find love in the audition room.

But when it came down to twerking, it didn't go quite so well for Katy.

Construction worker Trevor Holmes, 27, is a part-time construction worker and part-time singer and has a full-time crush on Katy Perry. The hopeful performed Ricky Martin's "She Bangs".

Lionel and Luke were in disbelief and high-fived the singer to celebrate. Francisco was hit by a vehicle after moving to Nashville, resulting in paralysis from the waist down. Of course, Lionel gets up and gives him a hug.
