Students contend for Idol spots

Nearly 50 students auditioned this week for a chance to be OU’s next Sooner Idol.

“It’s kind of a take on American Idol,” Union Programming Board vice president George Gust said. “By kind of a take, I mean it’s exactly like American Idol.”

Gust said the competition, which the programming board has sponsored for seven years, is one of its biggest events.

The top ten finalists will compete at the Sooner Idol event April 25, where a panel of expert judges will score the performances and provide feedback to the singers.

First and second place winners will be chosen by the judges, and the audience will choose a third place winner.
