Enoe Garcia was eliminated from American Idol competition Wednesday after he failed to impress producers in Austin. This led us to pose this question of the day:

Will the Crossroads ever produce an American Idol?

IHOP customers told Ranging Reporter JJ Velasquez their thoughts on Thursday.

A: "Yeah, to tell you the truth, there is all kinds of talent at Faith Family Church."

Victor Pilzner, computer operator, Victoria

A: "Well, why not? If Carrie Underwood was from a po-dunk town, this town sure can produce one."

Jim Pratt, maintenance manager, Pauls Valley, Okla.

A: "Yes. I think there's some talent here. Somebody will make it big."

Elaine Hauptman, housewife, Shiner

A: "I think yeah. From Flatonia where we live, there are two of them that tried out in Austin."

Briana Zimmerman, teacher, Flatonia
