Some claim without Simon Cowell, American Idol is out of touch and no longer relevant…but teaming up with Myspace might be a match made in critics heaven!
If you want to be the next Kelly Clarkson, Carrie Underwood or Lee Dewyze you can start your dreams over the Internet! Instead of staying overnight in a random parking lot of a random city, you can now create a 40-second video submission highlighting your star performance.
The contest — which runs until Oct. 6 — takes entries from a handful of songs such as Bill Withers‘ “Ain’t No Sunshine,” Keith Urban‘s “Kiss a Girl” and Barry Manilow‘s “Copacabana.” A select few contestants will move on to Los Angeles for a more traditional tryout. Both American Idol & Myspace are owned by News Corp, and this is being used as a way to drum up business for the struggling social-networking website.
Will YOU be trying out for your chance at world-wide pop fame?
