CORVALLIS, Ore. - An Oregon State graduate who auditioned in Portland last July for "American Idol" is still on the show, which airs Wednesday and Thursday this week.

There will be a viewing party for contestant Haley Johnsen at the Memorial Union Commons at Oregon State University, with big screens and loud speakers, according to her website.

Johnsen auditioned in July, got called back and made it to Hollywood and Las Vegas.

She made it into the top 42.

Judges will cut that group in half this week.
