UCA Student Vying for Top 12 Spot on American Idol

PaulsHealthBlog.comWhen University of Central Arkansas student Kris Allen traveled to Kentucky to audition for American Idol, he had no idea he would eventually compete for a top 12 spot.

Now that Allen, 23, has made it through the introductory rounds, he will perform in front of the show's judges, and the rest of America, at 7 p.m. Wednesday on Fox.

The following show will air at 7 p.m. Thursday and Allen will find out whether he will continue the path to fame.

"You know, it's crazy because when you go try out, you don't ever believe you're actually going to make it and then you get through to Hollywood," Allen said Friday. "You just don't ever think you're going to make it to the next round."

My wife loves to watch American Idol. A few weeks ago, she was yelling, "Conway in the house!" when she saw the young man from UCA singing.

It ought to be interesting to see if he makes it into the top 12.


Eat Well. Live Well.
