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
