A few simple rules....

The American Ideat comptition is simply judged karaoke... easy... a rotating panel of "celebrity" judges drawn from the local music, media and art realms will determine your fate and your opportunity for advancement to the semi-final round.

Tryouts:   Contestants in the tryout rounds may select their songs from the list provided (lots to choose from) or may bring their own karaoke CD.

Semi-finals:  Semi-finalists will be given 2 songs, selected specifically for them, in advance of the semi-finals. Semi-finalists choose 1 of the 2 songs to perform, but may also be asked to perform the second song in the event the judges are undecided.

Final:  During Saturday's final round, the 5 finalists each sing a song of their choice. Then, for the final elimination, a surprise song will be performed by the last contestants standing...

Important note about the Tuesday June 19th Tryout Round:

Remember, all semi-finalists will be performing songs that are selected for them in advance. So, if you make it to the semi-finals on June 20th following tryouts on the 19th, you will be getting your 2 songs only a few hours before you perform. This takes guts. And, unfortunately, the judges couldn't care less about your sob story. Plan accordingly.

Good Luck!
