If you're not watching American Idol this season, you're missing our local girl kill it on the stage.

That girl is Grace Kinstler and she is officially in this season's Top 5.

Grace is from the Crystal Lake area, so not too far from Rockford and each time she takes the stage she wows the judges so hard that most fans are saying she's the favorite to win this season.

I think her biggest competition is Willie Spence, who gives me major Ruben Studdard vibes when he sings, but you know I'm voting for Grace.

This Sunday, May 16 Billie Eilish's brother, Finneas will mentor the Top 5 and the show will end with the final three contestants turning into the Top 3.

Catch Midday Michelle on 97 ZOK from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook.
