‘Tampa Bay Idol’ Audition Set for Wesley Chapel
The winners will have a chance to audition for American Idol.
WESLEY CHAPEL – The next musical superstar could be right here in the Bay Area and Tampa Bay Idol will give local singers a special opportunity to be that star.
Winners of Tampa Bay Idol will receive a “Front of the Line” Ticket to audition for American Idol producers during their bus tour stop in Orlando on Aug. 17. This guarantees them a chance to be seen by producers without waiting in the long lines.
ABC Action News and Tampa Bay’s Morning Blend will open audition sign-ups Aug. 5 at ABCActionNews.com/Idol. The first 400 registrants will have the chance to audition. Then, a one-day audition will be held for the registrants to perform a short a capella song before a panel of local celebrity judges on Aug. 12 at Florida Hospital Center Ice in Wesley Chapel.
“I am excited that Tampa Bay Idol has chosen Pasco County and the ice arena as a venue to hold the tryouts,” Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said. “This facility is a great addition to Pasco County and we are looking forward to having individuals from our county and the Tampa Bay region show off their talent on a national level.”
Commission chair Mike Moore said, “Pasco County has so much talent and I couldn’t be happier Tampa Bay Idol is holding their next tryout in Pasco County. The ice arena where this will be held is a wonderful facility and we look forward to seeing the talent and the arena featured for the Tampa Bay Idol.”
“We’re happy to be giving Bay Area singers a unique opportunity – a chance to audition directly in front of producers from one of America’s most popular TV shows, American Idol,” said Nick Nicholson, vice president and general manager of WFTS. “That’s something no other television station in Tampa can offer.”
