We’ve reached the second week of American Idol and if last week's premiere was any indication, we're in for a phenomenal season! The show is already proving to be different from seasons past, as we’ve said goodbye to the judges’ squabbles and hello to Harry Connick, Jr! (Seriously, can that guy can’t get any more adorable? We don’t thinks so.)

Of course, the one thing that hasn’t changed are the numerous rounds of auditions. January 23’s episode finds the judges headed to Atlanta in hopes of tracking down the country’s next big superstar.

It’s here where Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez, and Harry meet Jordan Brisbane. From Savannah, Georgia, Jordan looks much older than his 15 years and he picks an emotional song for his audition: “When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars.

That’s a popular number this year (really, anything by Bruno Mars seems to be) and so the judges have a lot of other auditions to compare Jordan’s. They’re torn but eventually decide to give the kid a shot, much in part because of his infectious personality.

Jordan’s on to Hollywood with his Golden Ticket in hand!

What do you think of Jordan’s performance? Will she make it to the Top 31? Read our spoilers here!
