Season 13 of American Idol has been marked by the return of the guitar.

And that was evident during the Atlanta auditions, broadcast Thursday night.

But while lots of singers showed up toting guitars, only one was brave enough to use it to sing an original song.

Jessica Meuse impressed the judges with her performance of "Blue Eyed Lie," turning in one of the best efforts in Atlanta.

Other gals featured in the episode included Majesty Rose, Kristen O'Connor, Emily Piriz, Nica Nashae, Lauren Ogburn and teen sensation Bria Anai.

Guys we met during Thursday's show included Jesse Cline, Chris Medina, Ben Briley, Jordan Brisbane, Sam Burchfield, Caleb Johnson and Neco Starr.
