American Idol returns tonight on Fox

And so it begins. Another edition of American Idol is upon us. Idol's eleventh season arrives tonight on Fox with a two-hour episode featuring scenes from Savannah, which served as the callback for the South Carolina auditions. Back in July, we were on hand when the Idol makers came to the Mile High City in search of its next cast members at Invesco Field. When that footage will surface, we're not sure. What we can tell you, however, is that Denver will be represented by another artist from the Mercury Sauce camp, and there's word that a certain iconic character from our fine city has a cameo. Got any guesses who it is? Page down for the spoiler.
