Only two episodes have aired so far of American Idol season 13, and already it's obvious all of us diehard fans are going to love this season. As everyone's been saying, Harry Connick, Jr. really is the breakout star this year. He's already proven to be one of the strongest judges any singing competition show has ever had. I know it's early in the season to say something like that, and I will add one caveat: I just hope he stays like this even into the live rounds. As we saw with someone like Steven Tyler in season 10, the early edited rounds can be deceiving, and it's the live shows where we will truly be able to tell what kind of judges they are.
