American Idol judge Keith Urban said he was amazed by the talent coming through the first rounds of auditions in New York City and Chicago, and now we’ve heard the scoop on who impressed the country superstar and fellow judges Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Randy Jackson enough to make it to Hollywood!

MJsBigBlog reports that the following Windy City hopefuls will be moving to the next round: Baylee Goley, Brianna Marie Bell, Gabe Brown, Jay McNeil, Kiara Lanier and Schyler Dixon. Schyler, as some may already know, has auditioned for the last two season of Idol and happens to be Colton Dixon’s sister. Brianna also auditioned last year, making it as far as the Las Vegas round.

Of the 39 singers who tried out during the second day of Chicago auditions, about 25-30 of  them were reportedly pushed through to the Hollywood round.

Sounds like Keith was right about the bevy of talent showing up this year! Next stop for the gang? Charlotte, North Carolina.
