For the first time since its inaugural season, "American Idol" will hold a competition without any contestants from North Carolina.
Last year, four North Carolina singers made it to round 24: Chris Daughtry, Kellie Pickler, Bucky Covington and Heather Cox.
Fantasia Barrino of High Point won the 2004 competition, while Raleigh's Clay Aiken was the 2003 runner-up.
