OK, the guy's not country, but he's a darn good singer and he's from New Hampshire so you gotta love him! I'm talking about Mont Vernon's Alex Preston. We talked to him the other day on the phone. It was early on the West Coast and he was a bit bleary-eyed. He told us he's both thrilled and amazed that he had made it to the final four.

The performance show was last night and the voting opened right after the live show aired. Even if you're not a big "Idol" fan, this is a chance to help a local guy become a star and how cool would that be? Voting is open until 10 AM this morning and you can cast your vote for Alex Preston here.

The results show airs tonight at 9 on Fox-TV.
