For the ninth year, the Yolo County Fair is featuring the popular Yolo Idol Search Contest. Open to singers residing in Yolo County, the Yolo Idol event will be at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, August 16, 2012, on the West Stage next to the Rotary Park picnic area. The event attracts more than 1,000 fans annually.

“Yolo County is home to many talented performers and we are proud to give them the opportunity to show their special talents and entertain a large crowd of fairgoers. The Idol has become one of the most anticipated shows at the Fair,” said Yolo County Fair CEO Rita Moore.

Yolo Idol Search is a Karaoke contest and is for individual singers only. Each participant must provide instrumental accompaniment on CD. Each performer must be prepared to sing two songs.

“We want each singer prepared with at least two songs, because the winner will be expected to perform an encore,” Moore said.

First, second and third place winners will be selected by the judges, with the first place contestant receiving a $250 prize and the second and third place contestants taking home $100 and $50 respectively. Judging will be based on Vocal Quality, Performance Quality, Stage Presence, Appropriateness of the Song Selection and Appearance.

While there is no entry fee, there are a few rules. Each singer must pre-register at the Fair Office, 1125 East Street, Woodland, CA 95776. Entry and Release for Minors forms may be obtained on the Yolo Idol website www.YoloIdol.com, or by emailing info@yoloidol.com or at the Fair Office.

Due to time limitations, registrations will be on a first-come, first-served basis. The first 20 contestants to sign up will be able to participate. If more than 20 entries are received, they will be placed on a waiting list in the order the applications are received

While Fox Television’s popular American Idol may have inspired this local talent search, Yolo Idol Search is in no way affiliated with American Idol.

The Yolo Idol Search is a free admission event at the Yolo County Fair, which is the largest free admission fair in the state of California. The Yolo County Fair starts on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. Wednesday, August 15 and ends Sunday, August 19, 2012.
