Will A Georgia Native Be The Next American Idol?

A teenager from Snellville is one of the 12 finalists for this season's "American Idol."

Sixteen-year-old Diana Degarmo and the other finalists will take the stage Tuesday for a two-hour show and a chance to let TV viewers see what they've got.

It's about time.

Some observers and judge Simon Cowell have not been entirely pleased with this year's contestants.

After the two-hour show Tuesday, the group of 12 finalists will be pared down in weekly sing-offs.

Guest judges will be on hand, with Elton John, filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and Donna Summer among the prospects.

The series culminates with a May 25-26 finale.
