We told you last week that there was a rumor that a local person was going to be on this season of American Idol. (Thanks to Elizabeth for messaging us and letting us know.) Well, now it's confirmed---Jacob Moran from Dansville will be part of this year's season of American Idol on ABC.

According to a rundown from Newsweek of some of the contestants on this season of American Idol, Jacob is a registered nurse and he currently working at a nursing home. (You can see more from Newsweek about Jacob by clicking here.) Jacob has a YouTube channel that shows more of his singing abilities. You can check out those videos by clicking here.

If you know Jacob, tell him congratulations! (And tell him to give us a call!)  The next episode of American Idol will air Wednesday, March 6th on ABC.
