Moravian College to host Campus (American) Idol

30 students to compete in talent show as part of regional competition

"Campus Idol"(Bethlehem, Pennsylvania) – Thirty brave students will put their singing talent on display at Moravian on March 27 at 9:30 p.m. in Prosser Auditorium, when the College hosts a version of American Idol called “Campus Idol.” Contestants will take the stage and sing and dance along with karaoke tracks to well known songs. Much like the popular television show American Idol, the production will include a host, producer, sound, lights, a stage set, and highly critical judges. Each performer will be judged on the quality of their voice, charisma, stage presence, fashion, audience reaction, and creativity.

The contestants will compete in three elimination rounds to determine a winner. The top 8 contestants will move on the second round were their songs will be randomly assigned from a song wheel. During this round, two voting stations will allow the audience to help determine the four contestants who go on the final round. In the final round, the contestants will pick their own song from the list. The winner will go on to compete in the regional final.

Moravian's winner will be awarded a cash prize and the opportunity to open for an Auburn Moon [talent management agency] act on campus later in the year. They will compete against representatives from each of the participating colleges in a regional match up at the finals in Philadelphia. The winner of the final competition will receive a one day recording session at a studio in Philadelphia, a digital master of their session, and 100 demo CDs.

Campus Idol is a competition among participating Philadelphia and surrounding area colleges and universities organized by the Toner Sound Entertainment Group, The Auburn Moon Agency, and Eventions Productions.

Campus Idol is open to the public and admission is free. Prosser Auditorium in the Haupert Union Building located at Monocacy and Locust streets in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Call the HUB Desk at 610-861-1491 for more information.
