Only individual singers, no duos or groups may compete. Finalists selected to perform in the competition will have four minutes to impress a three-judge panel by singing along with an instrument or music track.
The winners will have an opportunity to be “discovered” and perform at an upcoming city-sponsored event.

The “Duluth Idol” show is free and open to the public, who are invited to bring picnics, blankets and chairs and cheer and clap for their favorite performers. For more information visit www.duluthga.net.
