A Step Closer to Broadway!

Two FSU students are heading to New York to sing live on The CBS Early Show.

Junior Mendez and Justin Bowen were both chosen after auditioning last month for The Early Show's "My Broadway Debut."

Two students from five university music theatre programs get to perform live for this "American Idol" style show. One lucky student will be chosen to perform on Broadway in "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels."

Junior Mendez said, "I was really excited. I sang, I did my thing and I got a cool spot. So, it's awesome."

Justin Bowen added, "It's a whirlwind; it's happening so quickly. I just got my music on Monday and I fly to New York on Thursday. It's very, very exciting. It's thrilling."

"My Broadway Debut" airs on CBS next week. Go to www.cbsnews.com to find out how you can vote for Mendez and Bowen.
