Getting get-service results from remote system into script variables

I am trying to get the results from a command Get-Service remotely and get the "status" result into a text box.

When I do Get-Service -DisplayName "windows audio" locally

I get

Status   Name               DisplayName                          
------   ----               -----------                          
Running  AudioSrv           Windows Audio

I would like to run it remotely using invoke-command and obtain the "Running" into an array or something, so that I can show in text box.

When I try the below I get $AppState as Name or "Audiosrv", but I am unable to get the Status value into array.

$AppState = Invoke-Command -Computername $objappsvrname.Text -ArgumentList $dispname -ScriptBlock {Param($DisplayName); Get-Service -DisplayName $DisplayName}

Please let me know how I can get the  status "Running" into $AppState

Please let me know if you need more info.
