Hometown Idol Coming to DeWitt Ox Roast
SINGING TALENT SHOWCASE ‘HOMETOWN IDOL’ COMING TO DEWITT OX ROAST
DEWITT, Mich.—Contestants are being sought to participate in America’s favorite singing talent showcase, Hometown Idol, scheduled to take place 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20, 2011, during the DeWitt Ox Roast at the Downtown DeWitt Main Stage.
Singers will compete in three age divisions: Juniors (age 12 and under), Teens (ages 13-19) and Adults (age 20+). Music must be age-appropriate and family friendly, however, any style of music is welcome.
Contestants may sing a cappella or bring a karaoke-style music track (no lead vocals) on CD or one instrument for accompaniment.
Singers will be judged on vocal performance, stage presence, execution (four-minute time limit), song choice, technique and appearance. An impartial panel will judge the event. The top three singers in each age division will receive a cash prize, sponsor prize pack, trophy and an invitation to perform in the Hometown Idol statewide finals to compete against the other Hometown Idol finalists for 2011. Grand prize is an opportunity to record a full-length CD of songs—a $10,000 value. The judges’ decision is final.
Registration will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. There is a $25 registration fee per contestant. Contestants can register online at www.yourhometownidol.com or at the event.
