Haley in Beaufort to fete 'American Idol' finalist


BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) — Gov. Nikki Haley is in Beaufort this weekend to celebrate an "American Idol" from South Carolina who has made it to the show's top three.

A parade in Candice Glover's honor starts at 5 p.m. Saturday in downtown Beaufort. Then Glover is giving a concert, starting at 7 p.m.

The 23-year-old Glover made it to the top three last week. This is the third season she has been on "American Idol," and the furthest she has ever gotten on the show.

The two-night "American Idol" finale starts May 15 on Fox.
