Do you have a fire that burns deep in your soul….a desire so powerful that sometimes you can’t sleep at night because you are so excited about the possibility of being a big singing star?
KCBA Fox 35 wants to help you achieve that goal. We have a chance for you to win an audition with producers from the television show American Idol on Fox.
Local auditions are set for Saturday, September 20th at the Northridge Mall in Salinas. You’ll be judged by a panel of music experts including American Idol Season 10 4th place winner James Durbin of Santa Cruz, his music teacher Dale Ockerman and Univision 67 news anchor Adriana Frederick.
One person from these local auditions will be selected to go to San Francisco to audition in front of producers of American Idol. It’s one of the steps James Durbin had to take to earn his way to an audition in front of Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Steven Tyler
Here’s a clip of that 2011 audition:
