I was there to check out the process because when idol ends I will be hosting Jacksonvilles Got Talent (exciting!!!) and I wanna absorb all the info I can! Everything is run beautifully with a close crew of people who enjoy helping out Independent Artists, and having a good time while getting work in.
You sign up, meet new people, and the brand new host of the show, Luke Hazel, keeps everyone pumped and excited while waiting. Everyone is singing, eating and networking. People brought friends and family for support and encouragement. Then you walk down that hall and stand on an x in front of 3 judges, including the shows creator Joshua Howell, and sing one or two songs acapella for a minute each. The judges were honest, fun and real. If at least 2 like you then you get that golden ticket to round 2!
There was a variety of ages, races and musical preferences. I heard country, oldies, r&b and more. Some people were instantly entertaining while others struggled to find their voice when they hit that x. So if you come out next week be sure to rest those vocal cords and leave your nerves at home!
Now aside from all the fun you will have and experiences you will cherish, there are also some great prizes up for grabs! Prizes include a free demo CD, photo shoot, Disney tickets, paid bookings, $1,000 cash & more for the winner!
There are not many opportunities in this area to showcase your talent without paying a fortune so you all better take advantage and get ya butts down to Lillian's on Roosevelt Saturday or I'll be saying I told ya so!
