HOLLYWOOD, CA - Two Arkansas men in the Top 15 of American Idol Season 13 are hoping to secure spots in the Top 10 and sing tonight on the show.

Malcolm Allen is from Wrightsville. He made it to Hollywood through show auditions in Austin, Texas. He credits his co-workers for helping him raise the money to make the trip. Malcolm says he has a love of gospel music but is open to all types.

Spencer Lloyd, of Bryant is 19 years old and a student at UALR. Spencer auditioned at the idol bus here in Little Rock. Supporters are having a watch party for him tonight at the Trojan Grill on the UALR campus. They'll be there from 6:45 to 9.

Be sure to tune in tonight at seven on FOX16 to hopefully see both of these guys perform.
