East Texans are boisterous and cheering loudly for the hometown talent to win the 20th season of American Idol.

Fritz Hager III keeps knocking it out of the park with one stellar performance after another. So far, these performances have landed him a spot in the top 5 and now he's looking forward to moving on with an announcement that he's made it into the top 3. This Sunday night (May 15th), Fritz will be performing for one of those coveted top 3 spots and he hopes to hear that announcement and to have the opportunity to perform in the show's finale.

From a young age, the 21-year-old from Tyler has had aspirations to be a performer and was inspired by season 11 American Idol winner Phillip Phillips (2012). Fritz has a huge local, and now national fanbase and they are looking forward to seeing him move on to the finals and win.

Attend the Sunday night watching party.

The Tyler Civic Theater will be hosting a free American Idol watching party this Sunday. This is a free event, but reservations are required to save your seat.
