Tonight is the night. American Idol returns for it's 13 season. Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez return as judges this year with Harry Connick Jr.

Several local singers will be featured on this season. Ethan Harris of New Hartford auditioned in Detroit, Kari Crimmins, a Whitesboro High School grad sang in Boston and Kaitlyn Jackson of Norwich also tried out.  Crimmins will be on tonight's episode on Fox at 8, so be sure to tune in.

Ethan's audition is featured in one of the many Idol promos.

See Kaitlyn sing with Ethan.

Good luck to all the local singers. We'll be pulling for you this season!

I'm looking forward to watching the new judges.  No drama, like last season.  Harry Connick Jr. looks like he fits right in and there looks like there will be a lot of laughs. Just ask Keith.

Of all the Idol promos, I think this is my favorite.
