American Idol winner Kris Allen is going to be doing the judging this time around. Allen has been chosen as a celebrity judge and mentor for the KIDZ STAR USA talent search. Read on for the details…
KIDZ BOP’s second annual talent search contest KIDZ STAR USA has announced American Idol’s Kris Allen as its official celebrity judge and mentor. For those of you not familiar with the talent search competition it’s pretty simple.
KIDZ STAR USA is an online competition for kids 15 and under who can upload a video of their performance to KIDZBOP.COM for a chance at a recording contract with RCA/JIVE Label Group.
The top four KIDZ Star USA contestants will be revealed in September and head to New York City where they’ll get some red carpet love and guidance from the celebrity judges. The final fan voting runs in September and helps in choosing the winner. You can catch Kris Allen and the finalists during a finale web event in October.
Endemol is also on deck to produce webisodes featuring the top Kidz Star USA contestants. We were wondering what Kris Allen was up to. It seems we hear more about his American Idol finale competitor Adam Lambert than we do about him. Hey, helping judge the talent of young kids for a good cause like safe social networking is definitely cool in our books.
Actually, Kris Allen has been recording his sophomore album, which we can not wait to check out. Hey kids, get out there and show Kris Allen your talent by heading over to KIDZBOP.COM.
