For the first time since 2008 and only the second time since “American Idol” premiered in 2002, auditions came to Salt Lake City in 2013. You can catch the results when the Utah episode airs this coming week. Surprisingly, this season of “Idol” is actually very entertaining, what with the judging trio of Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez and Keith Urban.
