Congratulations to the seven finalists in our "Casper Idol" video contest! They are still in the running for the $500 cash prize.

When the American Idol Bus Tour came to town, we couldn't miss the opportunity to get in on the action. We collected hundreds of submissions and randomly placed all of them into seven preliminary voting groups. The public voted and here are the results:

Group 1 - Krysta Kaumo with 20% of the vote

Group 2 - Samantha Allen with 19% of the vote

Group 3 - David Kingsley with 17% of the vote

Group 4 - Ashley Eckley with 23% of the vote

Group 5 - Patty Nielsen with 14% of the vote

Group 6 - Janelle Wiltse with 33% of the vote

Group 7 - Diana McLoughlin with 24% of the vote

Voting is open from now through midnight September 3rd and we'll announce the winner on September 4th.

The “Casper Idol” Video Contest is brought to you by White’s Mountain Motors and Cost Plus Appliance and Design Center.

*One vote is allowed per person, all duplicate votes will be removed from the system, so don't even try it.
