Cover Nation Runs Exclusive ‘American Idol’ Contest For Aspiring Singers
Fans are currently clamoring for the chance to make it in the upcoming season six of American Idol on ABC. Good news for Idol hopefuls, Cover Nations is currently running an American Idol VIP Pass Cover Contest.
Cover Nation is currently the largest community of cover creators and fans on social media. They have now officially launched the American Idol VIP Pass Cover Contest. American Idol hopefuls are encouraged to upload their renditions of one of five songs on YouTube, TikTok, or Instagram between October 14 and October 28. Video descriptions/captions must include “#americanidolVIPpasscontest” to be entered in the contest.
How to Submit Your Video for The American Idol VIP Pass Cover Contest
Singers interested in the competition will have to sing their version of “Left and Right” by Charlie Puth, “Cold Heart (PNAU Remix)” by Dua Lipa and Elton John, “Glimpse of Us” by Joji, “Running Up That Hill” by Kate Bush, or “Something In The Orange” by Zach Bryan.” Singers must also fill out a contest form.
Submissions will then be judged by two criteria, vocal performance and originality of performance. Entry in the contest is not an audition for the show, entrants may separately audition by visiting AmericanIdol.com.
Five winners will be picked out of this mini competition. Said winners will be mentored by a producer of the show, they will also receive a virtual audition with an American Idol executive producer.
There aren’t too many contestant rules, but a few that definitely need to be known. Singers must be born on or between June 2, 1993, and September 15, 2007. They also must be a legal resident of the U.S. excluding Puerto Rico.
The contest winners will be selected around October 31, and will be officially announced on Cover Nation’s YouTube channel on November 7. Their videos will be posted in compilation format on the channel, titled “Best of Contest.”
This is such a great opportunity because winners will have priority over normal entrants, so they have a better chance of making the show. Singers will be judged by vocal performance, and originally.
