On July 14, hundreds of American Idol hopefuls will line up at The Calvin Gilmore Theater in Myrtle Beach to audition for a coveted “Front Line Pass” for a chance to be the next American Idol.
From the auditions, three finalists will be chosen by a panel of judges including recording artist Calvin Gilmore, Star 92.1’s Korby Ray, and Grammy-award-winning songwriter and record producer Archie Jordan.
Those with tickets to TCO’s Tues., July 15 performance will watch a live pre-show performance of the three finalists and be the first to hear Calvin Gilmore announce the winner after the show. To book seats, call 800-843-6779 or visit TheCarolinaOpry.com.
The three audition finalists will be posted to The Carolina Opry Facebook page by 9 p.m. on July 14, the evening of the auditions. The final winner of the Front Line Pass will also be announced on the Facebook page after the TCO performance on July 15.
The winner of the Front Line Pass is guaranteed to skip the endless lines in Nashville to perform before American Idol producers. Those who register to audition (up to 100) will be invited to wait in the air-conditioned theater and concessions will be available.
