American Idol watch: North Texan may appear this week

Posted 5:11pm on Wednesday, Jan. 23, 2013

Another North Texan on American Idol? But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

We're only the in the auditions phase, so if Calvin Peters of Fort Worth does appear on Thursday's show (airtime is 7 p.m. CT on Fox), it's likely just a highlight.

Our intel comes from Russell Rian, public relations manager at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Rian tells us that Peters -- or more to the point, Dr. Calvin Peters -- is a third-year resident who works in the Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Department at UT Southwestern.

Rian says that Idol previously filmed a pullout highlight, and from what they've been told, is set to air Thursday.

Will he advance? Be quickly eliminated? Get left on the cutting room floor? Stay tuned.

We now have a new, simpler way for you to enter and search for events, at listings.dfw.com. As always, when you submit an event to appear online, it will also be available for us in our print publication. But now you can simply enter your event and provide an email address, rather than creating a separate account and registering. Our new listings tool is still a work in progress, so we appreciate your patience as we fine-tune it. Please contact us at hsvokos@dfw.com if you have any questions or concerns.
