At one point, she and the rest of the judges stood up from their chairs and joined a contestant to dance to Selena's "Techno Cumbia".

In New York, Mara Justine, a 15-year-old redhead from New Jersey, is floored when Ryan saunters up and graces her with his presence as she waits to audition.

The next contestant Andrew Weaver delivered an unbelievable performance of Ed Sheeran's "Thinking Out Loud", while a young contestant Griffin Tucker, 15, played piano and sang The Beatles' "Lady Madonna". Lionel agreed with Katy and then, in a reversal, brought him back. "A lot of people come in here with a lot of fear". It's cute and fun.

In ABC's retooling, the Mickey Mouse network pumps Idol with more of whatever hormone Disney created to make people get doe-eyed over fairy tales - Idol's fairy tale is achieving the American Dream - and Katy stays on message.

The Nielsen company said Monday that the 10.34 million who watched the return of "American Idol" represented ABC's biggest Sunday night audience with regular series programming since 2012. Following Francisco's audition, he successfully received a golden ticket to Hollywood, securing his spot for the next round in the competition.

"Just three weeks after I moved to Nashville, a distracted driver ran a red light and T-boned me on my bicycle", Francisco shared in a pre-taped solo interview.

But when it came down to twerking, it didn't go quite so well for Katy. He even gets Katy to admit, "I used to have weird feet".

It's grandma and grandpa advice time! Garrett Jacobs, 17, from Bossier City, Louisiana. One of the stars launched by "Idol", Kelly Clarkson, is now a panelist on NBC's "The Voice". David Francisco, 25, lives in Nashville, Tennessee and was hit by a auto and paralyzed from the waist down. Could something edgy happen next time around, like Lionel and Luke actually disagreeing on a contestant's shot at moving on? He's going to Hollywood and I'm not sure he's going to go far, but we'll see. He thought that his life, singing and relationships were over. He can walk now and is auditioning with "Isn't She Lovely". Katy starts crying and Lionel isn't far behind.

The singer laughed it off and Lionel joked: "There are some things you have to do for the business!"
