While American Idol may be down to the top 10 finalists, some Knox County students are getting a taste of stardom here at home.
Tuesday, 15 students, each representing a Knox County high school, got their first taste of the spotlight that will come with this year's CTE Goes Live.
The students took part in a photo shoot, and recorded a radio interview. The competition is put on by the county's career and technical education students.
While the contest is fun, it's also meant to be more than that.
"Well we are career and technical education; we've got our kids that are doing the radio, TV, cosmetology, marketing, graphic design-- we are giving them real life experience," said Buck Coatney.
The show goes live on April 19th on Market Square.
