Two weeks ago we were happy to report that not one, but two hometown hopefuls made it through to Hollywood on American Idol!

Our first hopeful on their way to Hollywood for the next round of competition was Benton High School senior Garrett Jacobs. Garrett is not only an accomplished athlete, but a solid performer as well!

Cameron Theodos is another native of the area and made it through to Hollywood as well. Cameron is an Evangel grad, a high school basketball coach and a noted praise and worship leader!

While we didn't see Garrett or Cameron on last night's episode of American Idol, we did notice posts on Garrett's Instagram account leading us to believe that Cameron's journey on Idol is over. We wish Cameron nothing but the best and could not be happier with the way he represented our area. As for Garrett, we'll be following you every step of the way buddy! When it's time to show our support by voting, you can count on us!
