(KANSAS CITY, Mo.) Thousands of people turned out in Kansas City for the chance to become the next 'American Idol.'

Fans lined up at the crack of dawn at the Barney Allis Plaza Sunday.

"We showed up at 5:30 a.m., so pretty early," said St. Joseph contestant Skylie Hughes. "I'm going on 24 hours of no sleep."

The long night was worth it for a chance to live out a life long dream.

"It's my life goal," said St. Joseph contestant Shayla Warden. "If I don't make it I can say, 'hey, at least I tried.'"

Unfortunately, Hughes and Warden did not make it to the next round but it won't stop them from their dream.

"I told myself I won't stop," said Warden. "I'm going to keep trying."

Another active week across the area as we will see 3 more disturbances head our way starting on Wednesday and last through Friday. Temperatures will remain cold through the first half of the week but by midweek we could be seeing a slight warm up and another chance for some wintry precipitation.
