Well our hometown hero and Lafayette Mighty Lion, Jacee Badeaux knocked it out the park last night on American Idol. He did a great job on Rascal Flatts' "Bless the Broken Road".

He is already drawing voice comparisons to already hit pop star and celeb Justin Beiber.  This week he sang “Bless The Broken Road”.  It sounded like he is ready to record right now.  You go boy.  He got through to the next round.

We are so proud of you Jacee! Keep up the great work and we sure hope you make it to the final cut...Oh, here's audio of him and some of the youngens doing well last night:
