South Bay Teen Idol

Produced by the JCC, South Bay Teen Idol is an “American Idol” style competition that crowns the best teenage singer in the South Bay. Teenage vocalists in 8th-12th grades are eligible to compete.

Auditions are in January each year before a panel of judges.  On the basis of the auditions, 20 teens are chosen to advance to the semi-finals (which will be in February or March), and then 10 contestants advance to the finals (March or April). Along the way, all the semi-finalists and finalists rehearse with professional vocal coaches and choreographers while enjoying the chance to bond with their fellow program participants, teens who share similar interests. At the finals, the judges choose the top 3 contestants and then the audience votes for its favorite. The first-place winner receives a $2,500 prize, as well as a donation of $500 to the winner’s school. The second and third place winners also receive prizes.
