American Idol airs Sunday and Monday nights at 8/7c on ABC.

Sunday night felt like fall premiere week - we had a series debut, ABC'sDeception, a season opener, NBC's, a series/season premiere, ABC'sAmerican Idol revival, and a headline-grabbing counter-programming stunt, Fox's O.J. Personally, I'm a straight shooter.

Pressure grows for inquiry into Telford child sex abuse claims
Lucy's father George Lowe has revealed he was sent threats just for speaking out about fears his daughter was groomed. It is vital that police and other agencies leave no stone unturned to bring child sex abusers to justice'.

US Defence Secretary Mattis Arrives In Kabul On Unannounced Visit
Mattis said he had seen some positive indications from Islamabad, noting some Pakistani military operations along the border. Approximately 14,000 American forces are now in Afghanistan, up from a low of about 8,500 when Obama left office.

Perry added that they try their best to encourage all of the contestants. Noah blushed throughout his performance and told the judges he loved alpacas, so they just hugged him and thought he was the cutest. "It's pretty special", Bryan said. "When we're not compassionate, we get emotional". But while Katy respected his story, she couldn't get a grasp on who he is as an artist. "We have moments where we're softies", he said. That was down -21% in the demo and -6% in total viewers from the last season premiere on Fox to mark the lowest Live+same day Idol opener ever. They were extremely appreciative, and Katy Perry even put her cat motif socks on her hands before Zach launched into Sinatra. Later, in Los Angeles, Nico gives a bad, but un-self-conscious, plugged-in performance of nursery rhyme "Nobody Likes Me (Guess I'll Go Eat Worms)". "They are so out of control", he said. The host only uttered minimal one-liners throughout the premiere.

While the show had seen its share of judges from the original panel of Randy Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Simon Cowell to newcomers like Nicki Minaj, Mariah Carey, and Jennifer Lopez, it's safe to say it also had its share of comical moments.

With Lionel Richie and Katy Perry by his side, Bryan proved what kind of judge he was going to be right out of the gate: encouraging and enthusiastic, but also truthful and trustworthy.
