Hi Idol fan! This looks like a species from Genus Phidippus. Those lovely, metallic green mandibles are a good sign. Do you happen to have any other photos of the spider's body? It probably won't be possible to get a species with just a face shot. Many of these guys are similar looking from the front

One of the most common (and one of my favorites) of these is the Bold Jumper, Phiddipus audax.
