The second night of American Idol featured a few familiar faces and a whole lot of characters.
For the first time, a second-generation Idol hopeful earned a golden ticket: 15-year-old Tristen Langley – the son of season one's rocker girl Nikki McKibbin, who finished third behind Kelly Clarkson and Justin Guarini – sang a cool version of Sublime's "Santeria" to earn his way to Hollywood.

If the season 13 premiere of American Idol is any indication, a few things are already clear: The unlucky judge juju is gone, guitar-playing singers will rule Hollywood, and America is likely to be wild about Harry Connick Jr.
With all eyes on the judging panel after last year's Mariah Carey-Nicki Minaj diva drama, returning judge Keith Urban joined Jennifer Lopez, who's back after a transformative year away, and the duo not only oozed likeability and rapport but their star power wowed most contestants.

Only a few years ago, reigning CMA female vocalist of the year Miranda Lambert was opening for Keith Urban.
Both stars now headline their own tours, but the two pair back up on Urban's latest single, "We Were Us," debuting Friday at 7:30 p.m. on his Facebook page, followed by a chat with the musician.
"Getting to work with Keith in the studio was awesome," Lambert, 30, says. "He's been someone that's inspired me along the way."

It's a lazy Sunday for most of Springfield, Mo., but not for Keith Urban. Having just bused in from his show in Oklahoma City the night before, the singer is trying to work in both a photo session and his second video shoot in two days before heading to tonight's show, the 30th stop on his 58-city Light the Fuse tour.
Later in the week, he's due back in L.A. to continue taping his second season of American Idol, all while promoting his latest album, Fuse.
Still, Urban, 46, can't help but notice the bright blue October sky and the sunlight spilling across the trees outside. He pauses to share the moment with his wife of seven years, Nicole Kidman, back home in Nashville.
