Kidz Bop has teamed up with Six Flags Entertainment to add a live tour to its annual talent search competition.
The Kidz Star USA Talent Search will be hosted on the Kidz Bop website, as in years past, but will now also include a live audition tour at 10 Six Flags theme parks across the U.S.
Beginning this June, young singers from across the country are invited to submit an audition video to compete for a chance to win a recording contract with RCA Records. Throughout the summer, guests who attend live audition events at Six Flag theme parks will be able to record and submit their audition videos on site. The theme park events will also include interactive activities, including live deejays and in-park contests.
The tour will culminate in a finale event at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Los Angeles, Calif., where the semi-finalists will compete in a series of musical challenges to win the grand prize.
"Six Flags is dedicated to showcasing best-in-class music events and supporting artistic partnerships and emerging talent," says David McKillips, senior vice president of corporate alliances, Six Flags Entertainment. “As the competition continues to grow, our family-friendly theme parks provide the ideal venue for the Kidz Bop brand and live component.”
Last year nearly 50,000 kids entered the Kidz Star USA Talent Search.
