American 1 Teen Idols tomorrow

Teen Idol - Singing her heart out

Tomorrow night we celebrate our seventh Teen Idols event, with a new location, a bunch of new competitors, and even an added “S” on the end of the name. We did that because we’ve invited singing groups besides the 10 competitors to perform for guests.

Also,’s Adam and Ben will emcee the event once again this year. For those of you who caught them at Parkside last year, you know they’re a hoot.

Something to watch for: both 2009’s runner-up and third place winners, Olivia Hale and Taylor Hawkins, return for this year’s competition. Historically, top-placing contestants do well when they return at our event. It’s no guarantee, but it’s something to keep an eye on.

Emmaline Brown, TR Krupa, Charlotte Prenevost, Tony Smith, and Shannon Watts are also Teen Idols veterans, while Amanda Collins, Austin Lyon, and Kristin Thomas are the rookies. And hey, rookies have won before.

It all starts tomorrow night at 6 p.m. at the Jackson County Fairgrounds. In the meantime, be sure to check out past performances at our Flickr photo gallery.

Be sure to check out the Jackson Citizen Patriot’s write-up on the event, featured in this week’s In Town & Around.
