The Voice VS American Idol! Kelly Clarkson VS Katy Perry! WHO WON???

Noah Davis sings

Perry said. Lionel Richie commended her for being unique.

It's hard to create a true "water-cooler moment" in 2018, but the recently revived American Idol is doing its best to create a slew of memeable events (wig, anyone?).

The judges unanimously voted to send Sussett to Hollywood, so this isn't the last we'll see of this American Idol hopeful.

Sohmer - who goes by the stage name Samothias, a nickname his dad gave him as a kid - said he wasn't much of a singer until Wheaton North vocal music director Kassy Krause encouraged him to join show choir.

Rissa Watson auditioned next with "When We Were Young" by Adele and played guitar.

"I think if you ain't careful you might win American Idol", Luke admitted.

The Season 16 "Idol" auditions continue at 7 tonight on ABC.

Mara, a 15-year-old high school student from Galloway, NJ sang "Love On the Brain" by Rihanna, and she received a standing ovation from all three judges in which they applauded and cheered for her.

Even though Idol aired for years on Fox while The Voice was on NBC, this is actually the first time the two have gone head to head for regular episodes.

Thaddeus sang "Don't You Worry Child" by Swedish House Mafia. Once the two men helped Perry to her feet, Richie stated, "Some things you have to do for the business". She not only impressed the judges with her singing but with her songwriting, performing an original tune. He is going to Hollywood. That's when Katy Perry beckoned him forward and surprised him with a kiss.

"You're exactly what I signed up for", Luke told the aspiring singer. Sussett got a golden ticket. Michelle still got her golden ticket, though. She sang a rendition of "Almost is Never Enough" by Ariana Grande and finished her audition in tears.
