011662With Season 13 officially in the books, American Idol is already looking ahead to next season, with the first auditions taking place in Minneapolis just four short weeks from now. With Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. reportedly on board already, and Jennifer Lopez looking likely to return as well, it could be the first time since 2007 that the Idol judging panel remains the same. As far as Urban is concerned, that’s a great thing, because he enjoys not only the chemistry, but also the diversity within the trio. (Click on the media bar to hear Keith Urban)
When the auditions start next month, Harry Connick, Jr. told us the judges’ goal will be exactly the same as it was this year. (Click on the media bar below to hear Harry Connick, Jr.)

American Idol will return to FOX for its 14th season early next year.
