Fox released the first photos of the judges for season 13 of American Idol during the first day of auditions on Tuesday.

The reality show shared a group photo of the trio--Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr and returnee Keith Urban--sitting together behind a desk on the official Twitter account.  

Lopez is chic in the promotional picture with a black-and-white striped top. Her two fellow judges are posed alongside of her dressed casual wearing tee-shirts.

The trio tweeted to their fans about their first day on the job on the first day of auditions for season 13 held in Boston.

Connick tweeted, "So excited to be on@AmericanIdol!!! i've already judged my wife and daughters like three times this morning. do they sell gavels on amazon?"

Lopez shared a cute photo of Connick, with the caption, "'Don't judge me' #firstdayquotes."

Urban, tweeted a funny joke about Connick, "First day on the set of @AmericanIdol in Boston!! Absolutely loved working with Jennifer and Harry Styles!"

'American Idol' 2014 Season 13 Judge: Harry Connick, Jr,. Named, Joins J-Lo & Keith Urban [REPORT] 

The Hollywood Reporter reported on Friday that Connick, Jr. will join Lopez and Urban at the judges' table. The singer/actor previously appeared on Idol as a performer and mentor. His appointment came on the heels of reports that FOX tried to hire music producer Dr. Luke, but he could not finalize his deal with the network because it posed conflict of interest.

Lopez previously sat at the judges table for seasons 10 and 11 of Idol. She was replaced by Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj and Keith Urban for season 12. Carey and Minaj announced they would not return to Idol when the season ended in May. According to an earlier Hollywood Reporter article, Lopez is the only female judge this season because the network wanted to avoid a repeat friction similar to the drama between Carey and Minaj.
