      Over 300 people signed up for Tifton Idol and came to the UGA Tifton Conference Center with the same goal, to become the second Southwest Georgian to hold the Idol title.

      After the preliminary try-outs, sixty-three contestants prepared to wow the final set of judges.

      The competition drew in a lot of great local talent and at the end of the afternoon, one person's talent pushed ahead the rest.

      Marcus Holloway, from Moultrie, will continue to Atlanta to audition before the producers as he continues his quest of becoming the next American Idol.
