Hollywood bound Three La. singers advance in the ‘Idol’ hunt

As season 13 of Fox’s “American Idol” enters its Hollywood Week round of eliminations, three Louisiana singers are still in the mix.

Look for Megan Miller, of Ethel; Ben Boone, of Lafayette; and Samantha Calmes, of Hammond, to try to wow the judges again in Tinseltown, where they’ll not only be competing solo, but in groups with other singers from throughout the country.

“Hollywood Week” is all part of the process of whittling down the hundreds of would-be stars who “made it to Hollywood” to the dozen or so who will compete for viewers’ votes and the next “Idol” title.
