NH 'Idol' challenger to sing in show's final 8 tonight
Preston, whose real name is Alex Preston Philbrick, is now one of the top eight contestants in the singing competition.
The public is encouraged to attend at 8 tonight, although the doors will open one hour before the show begins.
The remaining eight contestants will take the stage to perform the songs they originally showed the judges during their auditions last year.
The 20-year-old musician said his shyness won't stop him from pursuing his dream.
During a break from the show in February, Preston performed at his old stomping ground, Souhegan High School, where he encouraged the student body to work hard and never give up on their dreams.
Preston took the time to thank his support network and fans — especially those in New Hampshire.
The bottom three vote-getters will be announced at 9 p.m. Thursday, and one more contestant will be sent home from the competition.
