Madison VanDenberg, the 17-year-old singing sensation from Cohoes that left the American Idol judges speechless just a few short weeks ago, announced that she'll be shown on multiple Idol episodes this week.

Madison VanDenberg is legit.  Not just because she's from our area, but because the girl can saaaang.  After her audition round a few weeks ago left the three judges speechless, we wondered what was next.  Well, Madison VanDenberg announced yesterday on her Instagram that she will be on two episodes of American Idol airing this week.

She's a few steps away from making it to the 'live' rounds where (we hope) we'll be able to vote for her and really give her that local push.  All signs point to that happening but in the meantime, her journey is one that all of us here in the Capital Region will be sure to wanna watch.

The pre-taped 'Hollywood Week' episodes will air Sunday night March 24, and Monday night March 25th starting at 8pm. Idol airs locally on ABC, channel 10.

Two nights.  2x the Madison!  Can't wait to see what's next!
