LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Jasper native Savion Wright has made it through group night on season 13 of American Idol.

Wright's group was called the Texas Rangers, appropriately named since all 4 members are from Texas.

Wright made it through the group cuts to join the 50 or so contestants that still remain.

When he learned he was staying, Savion got down on his knees and covered his face with his hands in his excitement.

We will of course continue to follow Savion through his American Idol journey.

Idol is on Wednesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 pm CT.
