OMAHA, Neb. - Tyler Ahlgren's hometown, Circleville, Kan., has a population of about 150, and it's located about an hour and a half from Kansas City.  He headed up to the American Idol auditions in Omaha after deciding being a performer is all he wants to do.

"Whether I end up starving on the streets and just playing for quarters or whether I play in big stages for lots of people, I love music, so I think it'll be great either way," Ahlgren said.

His specialty is rock music.

"A lot of people from my hometown call me Steven Tyler.  I don't know if it's the hair, if it's the way that I act when I'm onstage," Ahlgren said.

He's also known to 'rock' a more bluegrass side as well.

While Tyler performs around Kansas, it`s not paying the bills yet.

"Now I'm working at a tanning salon that my mom recently opened," Ahlgren said.

So he hopes American Idol can take him to a higher level.  You may have noticed Tyler was seen multiple times on Wednesday's episode of American Idol in Hollywood.  Watch Fox 4 on Thursday to see if his group makes it through to the next round!
