The ‘Idol’ hopeful known as ‘The Sauce’ returns with more seasoning and leaves with a golden ticket to Hollywood - 03-18

The fourth Season 17 tryout round on Sunday marked the return of “the Sauce.” Or rather judge Katy Perry’s sauce. Florida teen Alyssa Raghu (short for Raghunandan) sneaked into the room as Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan attempted to block Perry’s view from seeing one of her faves from last season’s show who got into the top 24.
