"American Idol" contestant Candice Glover won't be visiting her hometown this weekend, after all.

Glover's mother, Carole Glover, told The Beaufort Gazette and The Island Packet that she was informed by "Idol" representatives that the show's visit to the Top 3 contestants' hometowns will not happen this week.

In past "Idol" seasons, the final three contestants have returned to their hometown for a parade and concert. Footage from the visits is typically aired before the three contestants perform for one of the final two spots on the show.

Neither "Idol," nor local officials have confirmed a time, date or place for the local concert.
