NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Peach State saw a lot of yes's and featured some unique and diverse talent, including 2 local contestants.

21 year old Majesty Rose is a preschool teacher from Goldsboro, North Carolina. She sang "Violet Hill" by Coldplay. The judges were all taken with her performance. Harry said it was refreshing, subtle and elegant. J-Lo said it appeared effortless, and Keith said she really pulled him in.

Sarina Joi Crowe of Columbia didn't make the show tonight, but she auditioned in Atlanta and made it to Hollywood, so we hope to see her later in the season.

Another local Tennessean that made it through was 24 year old Ben Briley, a server from Gallatin. Keith said if he heard him on the radio, he might pull over and crash his car. J-Lo said she loved his tone. The song coined Ben the nickname "Gumbo" because Harry said that's what came to mind when he heard Ben sing.
