An upcoming singing contest to be held in North Texas is not connected to American Idol show.
WiredPRNews.com – A singing contest to be held in Irving, Texas is not linked to the hit reality show “American Idol” as many have assumed. As reported by My Fox DFW News, the confusing advertisements for “Idol Ten,” a competition which promises a cash prize and expenses paid for an “American Idol” audition, have been confirmed as having no association with the reality show.
Those entering the contest to be held at a motel in Irving this weekend are charged a $45 sign up fee. Scott Tubs, Idol Ten president, is quoted in the My Fox report as stating, after being questioned about releasing the advertisement that insinuates his company is a talent agency, “To be fair, I’m not qualified to say, ‘This person has star quality, I let the, shall I say, professionals in that field make that call.”
Tubs has reportedly been sent a cease and desist order by the producers of the “American Idol” show. As noted in the report, he is now considering a name change for his contest.
