Heartland Idol is back! Join SEMO ESPN on the quest to be named this year’s Heartland Idol and win $1,000 CASH! Tryouts are coming up July 16th at the Osage Center in Cape and July 23rd at the River Radio Studios in the Sikeston Outlet Stores in Sikeston. Tryout times are 10a to 1p each day and you only have to try out once.
How do tryouts work? Show up at one of the tryout locations listed above. You’ll then sing 60 seconds of any song acapella for the judges. From those two tryouts, the judges will narrow down the field and determine who will move on to the preliminary rounds. Our finalists will be selected from each preliminary event and will get to sing on the main stage at the SEMO District Fair for a chance to win $1,000.
We’ll see you July 16th or July 23rd as we start our journey to crown the 2022 Heartland Idol with SEMO ESPN!
