Get ready East Texas!

The 2nd Annual East Texas Idol is back and the stakes are even higher as (2) lucky East Texans will have the opportunity to audition for American Idol.

I had the opportunity to talk to Austin Sandy who is the Audience Development and Brand Manger for our media partner KLTV and he gave me all the details on what you need to do in order to participate.

Per our conversation in order to audition you must have the following qualifications:

  • Must be between ages 15-28 (as of June 1, 2018).
  • Must be willing and able to perform at East Texas Idol on Friday night, August 31st if selected by the committee.
  • Video must be a capella or with a single acoustic instrument (played by the vocalist) and it is recommended the song be a cover rather than an original piece.
  • Video should be approximately 60 seconds long.
  • The video should be of you! We want to see you shine, so include your face in the video.

The Grand Prize Winner will receive a 'Silver Ticket' that will allow them to audition for American Idol Judges and the runner up will receive a 'Front of The Line Pass' to a American Idol Bus Stop city to where they would audition for the producers of the show.

The deadline to submit your audition is Sunday night (August 26th) at 11:59 p.m. CST.
