Lorenzo capped Sunday's episode, telling Seacrest in his interview that he started playing at music when he was 16 because of "some rough things I was dealing with" at the time. Once we get to Laila's actual audition, she sings "Who's Loving You". He had the judges singing along with him, but there was no ticket for him. She is also the first to receive a golden ticket to Hollywood.

Zachary, a 16-year-old high school student from Wesley Chapel, FL, walked into the audition with a high speaking voice. Adorably, Katie gives Benjamin a kiss, knocking him off his feet.
