A star-spangled panoply of schmaltz involving weddings, birthdays, fireworks and flags - not to mention some of the faces of the new season's hopefuls - ushers in Idol's second coming at the top of its two-hour premiere. "I don't want the outside world to mess with your handsome brain", Bryan urged 17-year-old Catie Turner, a songwriter who admitted people often view her as too "intense". The panel applauded his ability to make such music from such a bare but beloved instrument, and his golden ticket capped an unexpectedly moving first night. And celebrity judge Katy Perry has found herself in an ongoing property dispute with a group of aging Los Angeles nuns who for some time now have waged a legal battle with the pop star over her purchase of their former convent. The judges are all smitten with Catie, with Lionel referring to her as a wonderful Martian.

"I've always thought that she was special". All three judges agreed to send her to Hollywood.

"That voice is not going to work for records", Richie said bluntly, and then added a bit condescendingly, "We are looking for an idol for popular music".

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. While the judges originally decided Bultongez didn't have an artistic identity after he sang James Bay's "Let It Go", Richie felt guilty and wound up changing his vote to "yes".

"One day I just kept practicing and practicing, and then I started being able to sing in front of my friends, then in front of people I didn't know, and then play at restaurants and stuff locally and it just started from there", he says.

Since singing competition shows are television's most inexhaustible genre, American Idol is back after a blink-and-you-missed-it two years off the air. Before she splits, Koby deems the judges to be "dumbasses" and quips, "I think Katy is just a little jealous". I was in their shoes 10 years ago.
