American (Mormon) Idol

Several Mormons are participating in FOX's American Idol this season. LDS singer Brooke White (originally from Mesa, Arizona and now lives in Van Nuys, California) has been selected as a show contestant by the three judges on American Idol... she's headed for Hollywood!  She is not the first Mormon to participate in American Idol.  She is preceded by Jon Peter Lewis and Carmen Rasmusen. Below is the video of Brooke's initial audition in Philadelphia:

Also, David Archuleta, an LDS singer, received approval from the judges in his San Diego audition.  His film can be watched below:

We wish both very good luck in the competition!

Also, never forget the heavy Mormon involvement in popular television programs like "So You Think You Can Dance" (Benji Schwimmer , his sister Lacey Schwimmer, and Jaymz Tuaileva, among many other contestants) and "Dancing with the Stars" (Marie Osmond and others).
