The familiar song, "I Hate This", by Weyburn's own country singer-songwriter Tenille Arts was performed by one of the contestants last night on American Idol.

The Nashville-based singer posted about it on social media, saying she hopes to be able to thank the performer, Sage, in person for singing her song.

Local country singer-songwriter Karissa Hoffart shared her reaction with us.

"That just makes you realize that things can happen. no matter where you live, big things can happen like that to you. So it's a big inspiration," said Hoffart.

The episode of American Idol was to determine who would be in the top 24, and Arts congratulated them all in her post as well.
