Who is the next Maine Idol? You?


Who will be the NEXT Maine Idol? FOX23 would like to invite you to be a part of its biggest event of the year.

FOX23 and Q97.9 FM are offering anyone a shot at becoming this year’s Maine Idol and awarding them a trip for two to a guaranteed American Idol audition in Charleston, South Carolina. The contest begins Saturday, Aug. 11, at The Maine Mall in South Portland with an open audition.

All singers present between the ages of 16 and 28 will be eligible to participate in a “Cattle Call.” Each contestant will appear before a judge and be asked to sing a capella for 30 seconds any song that they choose.

The best of these contestants will advance to the performance round to be held in front of a panel of qualified judges and audience. From this group, one grand prize winner and a guest will be flown to Charleston.

Contestants register in-person on Aug. 11. In addition to contestants, qualified, credible judges are being sought. For more information, [email protected]
