KIDZ Star USA is America’s BIGGEST national talent search for kids ages 15 and under, and this year nearly 45,000 kids from across the country entered! Now, 10 talented young singers—Timyra-Joi Beatty, Joshua Bernstein, Joshua Bolden, Sidney Bowen, Jayna Brown, Kiana Brown, Taylor Lacour, Jarrett Massey, Alissa Musto and Katy Pati—have progressed to the next round to compete for the Top 4 slots and a chance to win a recording contract with RCA Records, a starring role in a music video and a guest spot in the next KIDZ BOP TV commercial.
Voting to determine the Top 4 Finalists runs through September 6th. Kids and fans can now vote for their favorites at KidzStarUSA.com. The 4 finalists will be announced on September 6th and will then fly to New York City for the star-studded finale event. Endemol, the largest independent television and digital production company in the world, will produce a series of webisodes following the musical journey of the Top 4 Finalists in NYC on the road to the Grand Prize.
A panel of celebrity judges and mentors including American Idol winner/singer and RCA recording artist, Kris Allen and Vice President of A&R for RCA, Candece Campbell, will mentor the contestants and help select the winners, along with fan votes.
With the success of shows like “American Idol” and “America’s Got Talent,” millions of today’s kids dream of sharing the spotlight and becoming a star! To help give aspiring young performers a shot at fame right from home, KIDZ BOP, the #1 kids’ music brand in the US, launched the KIDZ Star USA Talent Search last year.
