Okay, I don't watch Idol -- I think it's commercialized bubblegum junk food for the soul.
However, I must make an exception this fall because my brother's band is one of the 40 whose audition tape was accepted for a new Band Competition from the makers of American Idol. He travels to Vegas next week where the 40 will be whittled down to 10 over 2-weeks.
Those that make it will be part of a battle-of-the-bands with the winners taking home a contract much like Idol. Show debuts October 19th on FOX.
Check out the audition video and when the time comes -- vote, vote, vote. Your loyalty will be repaid 10-fold in Belikin rounds come February.
They made it to the Top grouping of bands that were invited to either LA or Las Vegas for consideration. They are flying back to Columbus today after undergoing extensive questioning and background checks. Will they make the Top 10 and be invited for THE SHOW? Only time will tell, but they WILL be on TV in October with all the footage taped in the last week.
