Announcing: Teen Idol 2008 lineup

Teen Idol stage in downtown Jackson

[Update: Congrats to Blair, who won our 2008 competition. Check out the video of his encore performance.]

Who will take the stage at this year’s American 1 Teen Idol competition?

After listening to more than 100 teens in Jackson, Hillsdale, Calhoun, Washtenaw, and Lenawee Counties, we’ve narrowed it down to 10 semi-finalists who will compete for a $2,000 savings bond and a trip to a Fox “American Idol” audition city. Plus each contestant will be raising $250 that will benefit the Jackson School of the Arts and a charity of their choice.

The 2008 lineup includes:

  • Emmaline Brown (14) of Hillsdale
  • Blair Grotbeck (18) of Adrian
  • Teeshlee Hawkins (18) of Jackson
  • Bobby Kucinski (16) of Chelsea
  • Austin Olano (17) of Adrian
  • Bridgette Powell (18) of Jackson
  • Charlotte Prenevost (13) of Jackson
  • Kelly Preston (16) of Jackson
  • Jenna Roark (15) of Stockbridge
  • Eden Zysk (18) of Somerset

Blair and Eden are returning from previous Teen Idol performances.

Look for these talented teens on Friday, July 18 at the Riverwalk Amphitheater in downtown Jackson, starting at 6 p.m. And check out last year’s winner, Trevor, performing “Bridge Over Troubled Water” on our YouTube page.
