Don’t forget — Bluffton’s Lee Jean returns to TV’s “American Idol” this week, just a week after taking a giant step forward in the reality music competition.
Last Thursday, it was revealed that Jean, 16, had made it into the show’s ‘Top 24’ semi-finalists.
Wednesday night’s show billed as “Showcase No. 1” will feature 12 of the Top 24 with the remaining half performing Thursday night.
Jean has been making regular appearances on the show since Jan. 27, when the show’s infamous Hollywood Week began.
Never miss a local story.
The show now moves into more serious stages of competition and is scheduled to run through April 7 when it will conclude with a live, two-hour farewell celebration.
American Idol airs from 8-9 p.m. on Wednesdays and 8-10 p.m. on Thursdays on FOX.
