BILOXI, Miss. (WLOX) - Could you be the next American Idol? WLOX is looking for that one great voice to represent South Mississippi on the hit ABC reality show.
The second round of auditions for 2019′s Gulf Coast Idol competition took place Tuesday night at IP Resort in Biloxi. The grand prize winner will win $2,500 and a Silver Ticket to skip the American Idol audition lines and perform directly for the show’s executive producers.
Because of music rights, we can’t replay Tuesday night’s performances, but you can watch our backstage interviews in the Facebook Live. WLOX Meteorologist Carrie Duncan spoke with each of the contestants immediately after they performed.
The top ten from both weeks of try-outs will be selected to compete in the finals, Tuesday, July 30, 2019. One Gulf Coast Idol will then be selected that night. Finalists will be announced during the 4 o’clock show on Wednesday, July 24 on WLOX ABC.
A “Fan Favorite” will also be chosen from the remaining Top Ten by voting on Gulf Coast Weekend after they are announced. That winner will receive a $2,500 prize from the IP Resort and Spa.
