You may be one of the millions of fans around the country who watched as American Idol launched the careers of many singers over 15 seasons.
Before claiming the Idol title in season four, Carrie Underwood was just an Oklahoma farm girl who had never flown in a plane before. The show began with auditions in Orlando in which hopefuls come into a room, perform in front of the three judges, and they decide whether the contestant is worthy to head to Hollywood.
"Something that I never imagined could've happened to me", says Julica.
The "Idol" opening numbers were better than all but two of the telecasts during Fox's final season of the show, including the January 6, 2016 season opener, which was seen by 11 million people, Nielsen said.
In the end, even his kiss with Katy wasn't enough to secure him a spot in the next round, as the judges eventually chose to pass on Benjamin.

Idol was always the best of the singing competition shows and, at least in the U.S., the form's progenitor. Coming up next, yet another contestant from our area, Mara Justine from Galloway, N.J. gets her chance to sing for the judges Monday night. Darrell did get her golden ticket to Hollywood, but was cut during the next round of auditions. The crop of talent was better than that of The Voice and The X-Factor and the format, with intimate auditions set in across the United States, allowed for the contestants' real, observable growth.
But this time, Julica had her biggest supporter with her, her 2-year-old daughter Mikova.
"I have a terrible feeling that could be a hit", he said, walking away.
Harper Grace majorly redeemed herself in her audition after being known for a disaster of a National Anthem performance at just 11 years old. You can also live stream on ABC official website (only for viewers located within the U.S. and its territories), HULU or PlayStation Vue.
Security soon dealt with Rey, but he went down in Idol history as one of the few to get their revenge on Cowell.
