American Idol is back in full swing and it’s already proving to be a different show of seasons past. We’ve said goodbye to the judges’ squabbles and the all-around negativity, and welcomed in the age of Harry Connick, Jr! (Seriously, can that guy get any more adorable?)

Of course, the one thing that hasn’t changed are the numerous rounds of auditions. When Idol returns for Night Four on January 23, the judges will head to Atlanta, Georgia in hopes of finding the country’s next big superstar.

Will Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban, and HCJ fall in love with anyone they meet in the ATL? Perhaps they’ll be won over by Chris Medina and his gorgeous doggy, Bubby. Or maybe they’ll be totally impressed by Jessica Meuse and her original song, “Blue-Eyed Lie.” Then again, it just might be the return of Pants On the Ground that blows the competition away! (Okay, maybe not. But it’ll sure be good for a laugh!)

Watch these videos below for a sneak peek at Night Four of American Idol Season 13, then let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
