With the auditions finally over, American Idol is offering fans a first look at what's to come for Season 13 -- and it seems there is plenty of talent to cheer for.

In a four minute clip released on YouTube Wednesday, the show introduces a strong competitor in Ethan Harris, a guitarist brave enough to perform Keith Urban's "You'll Think of Me" in front of the man himself.

"You're one of those guys where there is no difference between your singing and your speaking voice," said new judge Harry Connick, Jr.
