People all over Savannah had their eyes glued to American Idol Wednesday night, rooting on someone from right here in the Coastal Empire.

Stephanie Edwards, a student at Armstrong Atlantic State University, was up on stage again, belting out "Dangerously In Love" by Beyonce.

The judges seemed to love her, and a crowd of friends and family at B & D Burgers agreed, especially when she hit some incredible notes at the end.

"She's going to remain," said Stephanie's Aunt, Wanda Edwards. "She is going to remain and she is going to go all the way. As long as Georgia, family and friends are supporting her, she's going to go all the way."

Thursday's a big day for Stephanie and her fans: she faces another round of eliminations from the voters.
