Luke Menard makes the American Idol Top 24

I know a lot of you are already aware that local entertainer Jason Yeager made it to the Top 24. I wanted to let you know that another of the Top 24 also spent a couple of seasons in Branson.

His name is Luke Menard. He sings/sang with an acapella group called Chapter 6 that performed at SDC and Celebration City 2-3 years ago. They have a Christian ministry that mixes gospel with a variety of other music and comedy. You can google Chapter 6 for info on their group, and you can see videos of them doing "Bohemian Rhapsody" and a "Wizard of Oz" medley on YouTube, with Luke singing the lead.

Luke is a terrific entertainer with a great voice and range, great stage presence, and a great personality. Plus, he's probably the best looking guy in the Top 24, no knock on Jason. I worked with Luke when he was here, and know him to be a genuinely nice guy.

AI did not promote Luke or Jason like they did some of the other contestants, didn't even show their auditions, so I urge you to support both of these guys with your votes. Both of these guys have what it takes to be the next American Idol.

Thanks for the information. I hope that Luke and Jason both make the top 12. It seems as though AI has kept the good one a secret so far!

I do hope that Luke makes it through tonight...the Judges didn't seem to care for his performance so I hope he gets another chance to shine.

I think he is so cute.
And, he is good...the song was fine, it was not a ''show stopper''....but his singing was great.

I hope he makes it through.

Well, Luke made it through to the next round, Top 20. Congratulations, Luke.

But he really needs to "bring-it" on his next song. In the same boat as Jason Y., he needs to pick a more lively song next time. One that gets the audience's juices flowing. I think he just barely made it through this time, based on the reactions of the judges, a perception of posters on the AI message boards.

We know he's great, but he needs to show the rest of America.
