Bay Area Teen Idol Elimination Competition Thursday

K-DOCK 92.9

13 teens from Coos County will start their quest to become Coos and Douglas Counties premiere vocalists as Bay Area Teen Idol kicks off its 10th season at the North Bend Community Center Thursday night at 6pm. The program has run 10 seasons and has been touted by professionals as an experience like no other. Singers will open tonight’s show by performing a song of their choice. They will also perform a number of group songs that will feature all contestants and chorus members.

Each week will feature a new genre. The remaining contestants not eliminated in the previous week’s competition will continue while those eliminated will remain in the program to perform group songs.

Bay Area Teen Idol is a drug, alcohol and tobacco-free event. Contestants sign as pledge to that effect. They are also involved in many community events throughout the year; most recently they provided a free “Concert in the Sky” performance on the Coos Bay Boardwalk on July 4th. They have also performed at fundraisers, for civic groups and for both the Coos Bay and North Bend Tree Lighting Ceremonies.

Contestants are competing for a prize package valued at more than $2000 dollars. Tonight’s elimination competition starts at 6pm at the North Bend Community Center. Admission is only $3.00.
