The rebooted U.S. TV talent show premiered on Sunday, with Katy on the judging panel alongside Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan.
Season two finalist and CT resident Kimberley Locke gives us a whole recap.

He auditioned with a cover of Allen Stone's "Unaware", playing a beat up guitar with a hole in its top. After the acid-tongued judge couldn't stop laughing at 18-year-old Jonathan Rey's weird rendition of Shakira's "The One", saying, "I think we're going to have to cancel this competition - that was awful", the teen walked up to the judges' table as if to shake hands, but instead picked up a cup of water to throw at Cowell.
