Will this town rock or schlock on tonight's American Idol?

Lots of people here in Greensboro and the surrounding area will be tuned into American Idol this evening on Fox: tonight's two-hour broadcast is devoted to the auditions that took place at the Greensboro Coliseum a few months ago. On the Fox 8 Morning News earlier today they were able to show some footage of what went down this past October and we got a peek at some of the folks who made it through to Hollywood. There's one girl from Eden that we know passed muster, so at least one person from Rockingham County has a chance at stardom. Simon Cowell said in an interview this morning that the trip to Greensboro was why American Idol is worth doing... but Lord knows if he means our good talent or the bad ones that you keel over laughing at. Anyway, this is what we'll be watching tonight, and I might file a report on my impressions about the Greensboro installment afterward.
