A Vancouver contestant continues to advance on TV's "American Idol."

Britnee Kellogg, a divorced mom of two young boys, was singled out by name at the end of Wednesday night's broadcast as being featured on tonight's show. The show airs from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the Fox network, which in Portland is KPTV-TV, channel 12 (712 on Comcast HDTV digital cable.)

Kellogg was among several dozen contestants who survived the "Hollywood Round" of auditions for the show. Tonight's episode was taped in Las Vegas, and at the conclusion we should know who will advance to the regular show, where contestants sing live one night, the TV audience votes, and contestants are eliminated until one "American Idol" remains.

In an interview with KPTV, Kellogg couldn't say how she does on the show, but said that her performance of Fleetwood Mac's "Landslide" wowed the judges and advanced her to tonight's broadcast, which was taped in advance.
