A couple of locals got their golden tickets Thursday night.

Woodville-Tompkins student Jordan Brisbane is going to Hollywood as a participant selected to audition for "American Idol".

The school held a surprise send off for Brisbane earlier Thursday afternoon.

"This surprise was very surreal, you know?" he said. "Seeing all my friends congratulating me on my success has just been a blessing."

Another local, Laquan Fields of St. Helena Island also got his golden ticket tonight.

Fields is best friends with last season's "Idol" winner, Candice Glover.
