American Idol is just getting started this season and they're off to a fantastic start.

If you're on social media you have probably seen a ton of the American Idol auditions going viral. Personally I got sucked into watching half of the performances from weeks past last night. There is a ton of a talent out there and it looks like they're all on Idol this season.

Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie are on the hunt for the next Kelly Clarkson and last night, they might have found her.

If you were looking for a local Hudson Valley contestant to support, Vandenburg is the closest we have as of right now. Vandenburg lives in Cohoes, New York, which is in the Albany area.
