Two OC Locals in 'American Idol' Top 36

Two OC Locals in 'American Idol' Top 36

American Idol finalized their top 36 last night, and Orange County is responsible for two of them--that's 5.555(and so on) percent! Not too shabby.

Irvine's Mishavonna Henson (left) and San Clemente's Kai Kalama both made it through into the live episodes, which start this Tuesday with the first crop of 12 semifinalists performing. We'll be tracking their progress here, of course. Go team OC! Yay for opportunties to make still-funny Ryan Seacrest jokes!
