We’ve reached the third and final week of American Idol auditions, which means we’re down to the wire on which contestants will compete for Season 13! Since it started back on January 15, Idol’s thirteenth season has already proven to be a totally different animal from previous trips down the Ryan Seacrest road.

Of course, there’s one thing that hasn’t changed: the nail biting experience of auditioning for the judges! January 29’s episode finds Harry, Keith, and Jennifer headed to Salt Lake City, Utah, in hopes of tracking down the country’s next big superstar before it’s off to Hollywood!

It’s here where Keith, Jennifer, and Harry meet Dexter Roberts. This dog-loving entertainer runs a kennel when he’s not crooning, but he may be saying bye bye to his puppies after the great performance he gave during auditions.

Dexter performed “Drive” by fellow American Idol contestant Casey James (the blond Texan took third place on Season 9 if your memory’s a little hazy on that one). J.Lo, Harry, and Keith were totally digging Dexter’s laid-back vibe and had no problem sending him on to the next round of competition.

Welcome to Hollywood, man! Will you be top dog this season?

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