American Idol 2013 Chicago Auditioners Include Some Familiar Names

Similar to years past, a few familiar names and face have popped up during auditions for the upcoming season of American Idol.

According to MJsBigBlog, Schyler Dixon (Colton Dixon’s sister, who's tried out the last two year) and Season 11 hopefuls Shelby Tweten and Johnny Keyser were among the crowd to come out in Chicago, Illinois for the latest round of auditions with Idol producers. Even Heejun Han’s best friend, Richie Law, showed up for a shot at making the cut.

The quartet of Season 12 judges made up of Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson will reportedly be hitting the Windy City to listen to potential contestants on Tuesday and Wednesday at the Adler Planetarium.

From the audition previews we've seen, there looks to be some fantastic (and wonderfully kooky) talent in this town.

We’re wishing these standouts (plus all the other auditioners) the best of luck!
