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.
