Hannah Saults admits singing in front of the likes of Harry Connick Jr., Keith Urban and Jennifer Lopez was a bit overwhelming as she auditioned late last year to be a contestant on “American Idol.” But the 23-year-old Jonesborough resident says it was also a relief.

Saults auditioned for the show in October in Atlanta. That audition aired Thursday night on Fox as part of the 13th season of the popular singing competition.

“It was kind of like a dream. It didn’t seem real,” Saults said of singing the country tune “God Bless the Broken Road” in front of the judges. “Harry was really the only one to criticize it, well not criticize it, but tell me what I was doing wrong. Jennifer and Keith said they could tell the sweetness in my voice.”
