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 Kenzie Hall. She’s yet another super young, super talented addition to Season 13. Kenzie is also super cute, so excited to perform for Jennifer, Keith, and Harry she accidentally sang her introduction.

Nerves slightly settled, she dove headfirst into the heartbreaking “I’m Gonna Find Another You” by John Mayer as accompanied by her guitar. Perhaps she needs a touch of work on vocals, but there’s talent to build upon and the judges saw it, too. They handed over that coveted Golden Ticket and Kenzie, you’re on your way to Hollywood!

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