The Seattle Business Wire has posted a released about the three Puget Sound area residents have been chosen to continue on in the American Idol semifinals.
Fans should be familiar with the first one: 17-year-old Sanjaya Malakar, who watched himself move on last week, a feat that elicited mixed emotion because he did so at the expense of his sister, who was sent home.
The third Washington state representative is 25-year-old Blake Lewis. He's originally from Bothell, a graduate of Inglemore High School. He told the Seattle FOX affiliate that heâ€™s not happy Seattle got such a rap for bad singers.
â€œI'm upset with the stereotyping that gets done but that happens everywhere. What's the stereotype? That Seattle is just rock music? There's just so much more.â€
Fans of American Idol will find that out as the competition heats up over the next few weeks.
