      Beaufort supports hometown American Idol finalist Candice Glover

      BEAUFORT COUNTY (WACH) - Beaufort is going crazy for Candice Glover, a top five finalist on this season of American Idol.

      From the post office to Glover's high school, there is no doubt who folks in the Lowcountry are voting for.

      Even Mayor Billy Keyserling is showing his support ahead of the Wednesday night show. He says having Beaufort's hometwon girl make it in Hollywood is a win in more ways than one.

      "It puts us on the map," said Keyserling. "It launches her inspiration for some of the younger people in her school. To see one of your own just gives you a warm and exciting feeling."

      Janet Parker will be live from Beaufort tomorrow morning on Good Day Columbia. See more of Candice Glover's home and hear from those who knew her before she hit the big stage.

      The first-ever all-female top five week on American Idol begins tonight as Kree Harrison, Janelle Arthur, Candice Glover, Amber Holcomb and Angela Miller sing two new song choices. The show begins at 8 p.m. on WACH Fox.
