Are you a singer? Join us for the 7th Annual Celebrity at the SCERA Shell Outdoor Theatre, a talent search any serious vocalist age 12 and older won’t want to miss!  With live vocal and instrumental backup from our awesome band, Mitch Lee & The Galaxy Band, singers choose from songs in the band’s repertoire and can also make their own song request.  Vocalists will compete before judges looking for Utah’s hottest talent, and the win
ner will have multiple opportunities to perform throughout the year, including live and televised appearances. 

Summer 2012 preliminary competition nights are Wednesdays June 20, July 11, July 18 and August 8.  Each competition begins @ 8:00 pm.  There is a limit of 15 singers/preliminary night and four winners will be chosen each preliminary night.  Those sixteen will move on to compete in the semi-finals on Wednesday, August 15.  The Top Six will open for country band DIAMOND RIO at the Shell August 27- and our 2012 Celebrity will be chosen by a panel of judges that night!  There is a $35 registration fee to compete.  All participants receive a T-shirt and written feedback from the judges.  Remember, you must be 12 or older to compete. 

NEW THIS YEAR!  We are having separate youth and adult divisions.  Each preliminary night will take up to seven competitors ages 12-17 and and up to eight adult competitors 18 and older.  Each preliminary night, the judges will select two youth winners and two adult winners to move on to semi-finals.  At semi-finals, the judges will select three youth competitors and three adult competitors to move on to the final round.  At the finals, the judges will choose a youth Celebrity winner and an adult Celebrity winner. 

NEW THIS YEAR!  Each preliminary night will have a theme.  Here they are!  June 20 is Country; July 11 is 1950's-1980's; July 18 is Open Genre; and August 8 is Broadway Showtunes and Jazz.  When you register, please make sure your song choice matches the night's theme.   

Registration will begin on Monday, April 16th.  To register, submit three song choices from the band's song list and one of your own song requests.  That's four total song choices, and please list them in your order of preference.  Song requests must be received at least one week prior to the night you sign up to compete. The band will communicate with you on which of your choices is available.  Songs must be appropriate for a family audience. Once your song is confirmed, it cannot be changed!  Call (801) 225-ARTS to reserve your spot or download and print a registration form.
