American Idol season 13 doesn’t premiere ’til January, but you can catch a whiff of Keith Urban, former judge J. Lo, and new judge Harry Connick Jr.’s combined pheromones already. Check out a sneak preview of a few promising auditions (plus a twerking “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and a slurring man Harry thinks is “cool”) below.


Is anyone excited for American Idol this year? I’m in it for:

–More creative hair bun situations from J. Lo.

–Not sure what else, yet.

What about you? Harry Connick is quite a charm monster, right?
