Wheaton man to be featured in American Idol auditions

Wheaton man to be featured in American Idol auditions

Venezuelan refugee Michelle Sussett wants to be an American Idol!

Seacrest seconds the sentiment, saying there was instant chemistry among the three judges and himself. According to the Huffington Post, Dunkleman's exit from the show had unclear circumstances. He doesn't tell people they're bad; he tells them that, for one reason or another, they're just not ready. They are not as pointed as they could be in offering criticism, which in turns takes some of the shine off their praise.

They also come up short in terms of "selling the dream" when someone gets pushed through to Hollywood. I think in the past there was some of that and maybe taking advantage of people; their actual skill sets for comedy.

The production company that produces the show, FremantleMedia, made it abundantly clear to the show's former home that this is a format they won't change. We're artists, and we know exactly how to critique talent, so all the things that I was going to put in my video and my CD and my master class, I'm actually going to be able to tell the "students" in person. You think it's just singing? Find out why ABC's version may have more heart this time around. Here's all you need to know.

As usual, the first episodes of "American Idol" will revolve around the auditions, so those have been pretaped.

So what do Richie, Perry and Bryan have to bring to the judges' table?

Lionel Richie: "I love the quality of your voice". As if her circumstances weren't extreme enough, the 16-year-old had planned an original song for her audition. Katy asks rhetorically. "I'm always looking for the biggest one".

Richie added, "The attractive part is I love the judging".

Well, we don't know yet! Considering Idol's uplifting goal of elevating unknowns to a national spotlight this seems like a good plan and really also an extension of what we were seeing on FOX in the final seasons there too.

"I really enjoyed meeting you today", said Perry. "We're really real with them".

Luke Bryan: "You have a great voice". "So I ended up going and making it to the judge's round and drove to Nashville and auditioned in front of the celebrity judges". I was in their shoes ten years ago. And then American Idol called, and I jumped right on it. Still, her cameo might remind viewers of "Idol's" two other big-name alums - Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer Hudson. "I'm in there on the emotional ride with these kids". Cute little viral "moments" may inspire short-term chatter, but compelling, magical stories are what make shows like this matter.

Tune in to see which contestants make it to the finale, and walk away with the opportunity of a lifetime when "American Idol" Season 16 premieres Sunday at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
