Finals getting tough for Small Town Idol
Brady Franklin, Becky Greenwood and Brian Hilding brought their fabulous voices and entertaining spirits to Thursday’s Small Town Idol competition. With both rooms of CR Diner packed with cheering spectators, the three really brought down the house.
Each week, eliminations get tougher and this week was no exception. The judges were given the task of scoring each of the three contestants and the two with the highest scores move to the finale on February 26. All three were spectacular.
On Friday, the crowd was treated to performances by Idol judge Aileen Walden, as well as some of the semi-finalists and the three finalists. It was then revealed Brady Franklin and Brian Hilding would be the two moving on.
Each will sing three songs on Thursday and will be given the results that night. With their powerful voices and versatile styles, you’re not going to want to miss these performances.
