Philippine Idol main audition two days away

Philippine Idol wannabes have two more days to get ready.

With the main Philippine Idol audition, the first of three major Philippine Idol auditions for the local franchise of the explosive Fremantle Media/19 Entertainment-owned American Idol, scheduled for June 3 at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on Roxas Boulevard, excited amateur and professional singers have themselves a chance to perform in front of millions and essentially make all their wildest dreams come true.

According to a Philippine Idol press release published on page C7 of the June 1 issue of the Philippine Star, the registration venue for Philippine Idol applicants is at the back of the PICC building, the Secretariat Building. Philippine Idol applicants may line up as early as 6AM on June 3, although they should have eaten and gone to the toilet, because apparently, no food and drinks will be allowed inside the Philippine Idol audition room.

Qualifiers of the Philippine Idol Fast-Track screenings held at various malls throughout the nation, will be allowed to line up in different lines, provided they have their Fast Tracks pass with them.

Interested Philippine Idol applicants should be at least 16 but not more than 28 years old on July 1st, 2006, and must not hold any talent or recording contract. They must present two valid IDs, original and two certified true copies of their birth certificate, and two photos (a 2x2 and a full-body shot). They should be prepared to sing a fast song and a slow song.
