Calling all singers! Macon Idol is here! Are you the best singer in Middle Georgia? If so, you could win a trip to Los Angeles to see the finale of American Idol in person!
WGXA will fly our winner to L.A. with accommodations and two of the hottest seats in America for the big 2 hour finale on May 16th. Just come to The Macon Mall (lower level below Smok'n Pig BBQ) on Saturday, April 27th to sing for our judges at our open audition. Come prepared to sing one song, a capella (no music accompanyment of any kind). You'll have 90 seconds to sing. Our judges will score each performance and by the end of the day we will have 3 finalists. Those 3 finalists will appear on WGXA Morning News where we will announce the winner of the trip to the finale!
