Ohio Idol is a statewide vocal competition exclusively for Ohio residents who are 12 years of age and older. Contestants can compete to win $10,000 cash, a recording contract and will be the featured performer on the 2013-14 Ohio Idol state tour.
“There is so much talent here in Ohio that we never get to see on TV,” said Steve Wise, President of InTune Promotions and show creator. “We want to give the talented residents of Ohio a place to showcase their talent, get performance experience and professional guidance. Our industry judges, along with the cash prize and recording contract, are keys to helping talented singers get on their way to a professional career.”
The Ohio Idol competition will consist of four rounds of auditions. Dayton’s Fairmont Kettering High School at 3301 Shroyer Rd. will play host to round one auditions on Sat June 15th. Doors open at 9am and auditions begin at 10am. During the first round of auditions, everyone registrant will have the opportunity to sing in front of a panel of judges. The Top 100 singers will be invited to audition in the second round, which will be held in front of a live audience over a two-day period. Fifty will be performing on each day. This event is open to the public.
The third round will be showcasing the Top 50 singers from the state of Ohio, performing live in front of thousands at this years’ Red White & Boom Independence Day event held in Columbus.
The Top 10 will advance to the Finale.
The Finale: The Top 10 will perform live on the Main street stage at The Ohio State Fair. This is where the winner will be announced and we will find out who will be in our Top 5 to continue on to tour the state of Ohio for the following year.
