SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah has it's own American Idol hopeful.

For those who are familiar with Savannah's music scene, you may already know 24-year-old Josh Johansson. The local singer and musician will be seen in a few weeks auditioning during Idol's 15th and final season.

WTOC Don Logana talked to Josh on Wednesday, and he announced it on his Facebook page Wednesday night.

That makes two American Idol hopefuls from our area we can watch for, as 16-year-old Lee Jean from Bluffton advanced to Hollywood Wednesday night on American idol.

Jean auditioned in July in Savannah and then advanced to Atlanta before judges Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr. His audition aired Wednesday night where we saw him get his golden ticket.
