Businesses across Augusta County are throwing their support behind American Idol hometown favorite Colton Berry.

Berry is the Staunton teen who is currently one of the top 24 finalists on the show.

From the Consumers Auto Warehouse in Staunton to the Waynesboro McDonalds, many are displaying support for Berry through signs and message boards.

Mike Floyd who works at Consumers Auto Warehouse came up with the slogan on their sign as a way to support the teen.

"It was really something just to get the people around town to show support for Colton. Everybody knows him. Everybody wants him to win and a couple years ago, we have Chris Daughtry from Fluvanna come and he's doing great now."

Many signs are also taking shots at Simon Cowell, the one Idol judge who did not want Berry to move on to the finals. However, he proved Simon wrong.
