    Jennifer Lopez will return to American Idol as a judge for Season 13, alongside returning Season 12 judge Keith Urban. Rounding out the panel is Harry Connick, Jr.

    Former judge Randy Jackson will offer expertise to the contestants as an in-house mentor. He left his role as a judge last season, as well.

    "I have always been a huge fan of American Idol and really enjoyed my time as a mentor on the show," said Harry Connick, Jr. "And I am honored that they've asked me to be a judge this season. As an entertainer, I am truly excited to bring my perspective to American Idol, and to help emerging performers find their way."

    This panel is certainly refreshing and could mean good things for Idol. V. 2014, Season 13.

    Will you be tuning into Season 13 of American Idol, starring J. Lo, KU and HC, Jr.?
