NOPE sorry. His hometown is Blue Springs, Mo. He has been a part of the KC music scene for years, and his career wasn't taking off, so he had recently moved to Ok. to try his luck. But his family is still here and that's where his HOMETOWN visit was.

thats just cause his family lives there now.. if he lived in oklahoma his whole life, then the past year his family moved to Kansas.. why would he go to Oklahoma for the hometown visit, if everybody else is in Kansas?

-Thats why I claim him..

But his family didn't just move to Missouri (not Kansas) - he grew up here - went to Blue Springs Mo HS, played in the band Axium for years here in KC. So you can't claim him - sorry! :)

American Idol Announces Season 8 Schedule

December 15, 2008 - Posted by Miles

Get Ready To Share Your Voice As American Idol Returns With A Brand-New Season, New Contestants and a New Judge Tuesday, January 13 and Wednesday, January 14 on FOX.

Top 36 Semi-Finalists Revealed Wednesday, February 11.

Voting Begins Tuesday, February 17.

Top 12 Singers Revealed After Judges' Wild Card Round Thursday, March 5.

Top 12 Finalists Perform for First Time Tuesday, March 10.

The wait is almost over for the return of television's #1 show! Last season's finale boasted a record-breaking nearly 100 million votes cast in the crowning of David Cook as the winner and now, American Idol is set to return with a two-night, four-hour premiere event featuring extraordinary talent and outrageous new auditions Tuesday, January 13 and Wednesday, January 14 at 8/7c on FOX.

The eighth season kicks off with three weeks of audition episodes, featuring tryouts held in East Rutherford, NJ, Jacksonville, FL, Kansas City, MO, Louisville, KY, Phoenix, AZ, Salt Lake City, UT, San Francisco, CA and San Juan, Puerto Rico. After the two-night premiere, auditions will continue for two weeks on Tuesday, January 20 (8/7c) and Wednesday, January 21 (8/7c); and Tuesday January 27 (8/7c) and Wednesday, January 28 (8/7c). The final audition episode will air Thursday, January 29 (8/7c) on FOX.

The lucky auditioners who get the judges' approval then move on to the "Hollywood Round" where contestants vie for a semifinalist position during the grueling next phase of the auditions. Extended for one week, the "Hollywood Round" episodes air Tuesday, February 3 (8/7c), Wednesday, February 4 (8/7c) and Tuesday, February 10 (8/7c). On Wednesday, February 11 (8/7c), dreams come true for three dozen hopefuls, as Simon, Randy, Paula and Kara announce the Top 36 semifinalists.

It will then be up to America to decide who moves forward in the competition. For three consecutive Tuesdays including: February 17 (8/7c), February 24 (8/7c) and March 3 (8/7c), 12 different semifinalists will perform each night in the hopes of moving on to the Top 12. Each week during the LIVE results shows airing Wednesdays: February 18 (8/7c), February 25 (8/7c) and March 4 (8/7c), the three finalists with the highest number of America's votes -- one male, one female and the next top vote getter -- will secure coveted spots in the Top 12.

On Thursday, March 5 (8/7c), American Idol presents a special "Wild Card" episode featuring the judges' favorite remaining contestants. After each of the contestants performs, the judges will select the three final contestants who will round out the Top 12.

The competition heats up as those Top 12 finalists take the stage for the first time together Tuesday, March 10 (8/7c). Immediately following, America has another chance to share its voice and vote for their favorite finalists.

American Idol: Scam Warning

January 9, 2009 02:00:39 by Paulene Hinds

American Idol producers are warning fans of a scam artist who is pretending to be from the hit reality TV show and are hoping to keep their viewers from being victims of the deception. The person has been sending letters pretending to be from the show.

The letter states that the lucky receiver is the winner of a cash prize and even contains a bogus check. The winners are asked to call a phone number to claim their prize.

American Idol officials say they are running no such contest and that anyone who gets such a letter should refer the matter to postal authorities.

There is no talent in Arizona.. they need to come back to Oklahoma, we have already had two winners here.

I like Carrie. Who else was from OK? I KNOW you're not trying to claim David Cook, who is from Missouri!!!
