Simon Won’t Be There but Talent Will Abound
Like the TV show American Idol, potential contestants must first make the cut by submitting an audition tape, photo, brief bio and shirt size to KW Entertainment, PO Box 178, Lowell, MA 01853. If you make it, be ready to perform.
This competition is open to individual singers only who compete in one of two categories-Junior (up to age 18) and Senior (age 18 and older). Vocalists are judged according to vocal ability, stage presence and the entertainment value of their performance.
Prizes in each category are $500 for first, $300 for second and $200 for third. Each vocalist must have two pieces ready, with one selection being offered in the semi-finals and the second piece in the finals.
So, if you think you’ve got the pipes and personality to mesmerize the judges and the Hampton Beach visitors, get ready to open it up and let it all out at the Hampton Beach Seashell Stage in late August. Hampton Beach Idol is not associated with the hit television show or any other competition.
