Two Jacksonville residents took center stage this week as contestants on two of the most popular shows on TV. Carlos Garland, 25, a graduate of Douglas Anderson School of the Arts and a student at Jacksonville University, performed on "So You Think You Can Dance," while 19-year-old graduate of The Bolles School/University of Florida student David Ferman juggled and did a balancing act on "America's Got Talent." 

The good news is one of them advanced to the next round. The bad news is the other one didn't.

Spoiler alert: Don't click on the links if you don't want to know if:

Garland made it to SYTYCD's top 18 ... 

or Ferman made it to Las Vegas on AGT?
