Les Greene is up on American Idol and performed his own rendition of Sam Cooke’s “A Change Is Gonna Come” for his audition. Les, 27, was born in Baltimore but moved to South America with her mom.
Lionel Richie said Les’s singing is strong. Luke Bryan said Les is a Ferrari when it comes to his singing. Luke said he is raw and full speed ahead. Luke said the reality is whether he could do this five nights in a row. But, Luke was a big “Yes.” Katy Perry loves his personal style and presentation. Katy also was a “yes.” Finally, Lionel gave Les a “yes” and sent him off to Hollywood.

American Idol will make its highly anticipated return to television as superstar judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie set out on a journey across the nation to discover a new crop of inspiring talent with a touch of Disney magic, as it premieres its first season at its new home on America’s network, The ABC Television Network, streaming and on demand. Emmy® Award-winning host and producer Ryan Seacrest, who represents the heart and soul of the show, returns as host of the beloved series to walk with these Idol hopefuls through this adventure toward stardom.

The Idol format has taken on original versions in 53 countries around the world, and American Idol itself has played to a worldwide audience of over 460 million across 53 countries. To date, American Idol has earned 57 Emmy nominations and eight wins.
