Ask anyone in the Capital Region who their favorite American Idol finalist is and it would be mostly unanimous; Madison VanDenburg.  We had the chance to ask the Cohoes native what some of her favorite local things are, and she was more than willing to share them with us.  From favorite ice-cream spots to dream local concert venue, Madison gave us the lowdown.  Here the whole segment here as heard with Brian and Chrissy in the morning on 107.7 GNA.

Madison VanDenburg is set to keep the momentum rolling this Sunday night on American Idol.  The two hour show will air locally on ABC Channel 10 from 8-10pm.  The final 6 AI contestants will perform songs believed to be from the Woodstock/Hippie era. Votes throughout the show will determine who stays, and who goes.

By the end of the evening, 6 will become 4 and two contestants will have their American Idol dreams dashed.  Good luck Madison, from all of us here in the 518!
