Subscribe to Taste of Country on

The new season of ‘American Idol‘ is right around the corner, and Keith Urban may be judging one of his biggest fans this year.

In a newly-released trailer, a teenager named Riley Bria reveals his avid fandom for Urban, who is returning to his judging chair for the third year. The teenaged singer-guitarist shows off his extensive knowledge of the superstar’s life and career in a trivia Q&A with Ryan Seacrest, correctly identifying Urban’s birthplace and the title of his recent album, but stumbling a bit when asked the number of chart-topping singles Urban has scored.

Bria, who resides in Spring Hill, Tenn., just outside of Nashville, auditioned for the show by performing one of Urban’s own songs.

“It’s a scary thing, but I’m excited to do it,” he says.

Will Bria make the cut, or will his hero shoot him down? Find out when ‘American Idol’ returns in a special two-part premiere beginning Jan. 7 on Fox.
