Starting this Wednesday night (March 30) through May 13, aspiring "Idol" songsmiths can go to www.americanidol.com to hear the opening bit of an unfinished Taio tune, and then add lyrics to it to help complete each verse. There will be four submission phases, after which fans will vote among the top three finalists. Then the winning version of the song will be the one that Taio performs on the "Idol" finale!
Adds host Ryan Seacrest: "'American Idol' auditions are proof that many of our fans have a passion and desire to sing professionally. What 'Idol' doesn't get to explore on camera are the many talented songwriters that exist as well. Coca-Cola has created a very exciting and innovative program that, for the first time, gives fans the opportunity to work with a top artist to create a new song that will be performed live in front of millions of people."
Go to www.americanidol.com starting Wednesday night to try your luck! May the best songwriter win...
