Smithville resident Josh Issac, a.k.a Josh Melton, has advanced to sing in front of the American Idol judges next year.Issac, who has attempted to become an Idol contender once before, said he had not intended to try again, but his latest try has been a satisfying one.“I did tryout for Idol before, and got to move on to the California round in front of Simon, Paula, and Randy,” Issac told the Review. “It was a great honor to be able to do that. I had actually decided back then I was going to move on from my Idol dreams, which makes this latest experience an even more exciting win.“After I won at Disneyworld recently, there were probably 50 people waiting to get my autograph and pictures.
