Skokie Idol is back, bigger and better than ever!


The contest is open to everyone, regardless of where you live.  Contestants will be divided into two groups.


Junior Division - Grades 4 - 12

Adult Division - Everyone else


Because there are two divisions, there will be two Skokie Idol winners. Your group is determined by your age on January 1, 2022.  Please note: the age ranges of the groups are subject to change based on the number of contestants who register.


Unlike past years, there are no weekly eliminations.   Players will receive a minimum of six song challenges.  Five challenges  will be recorded and submitted online.  The sixth challenge will be performed live at Skokie Theatre.

Your first song will not be scored, but your remaining songs will be.  Recorded songs will presented in a weekly online show Starting Saturday January 15 and will receive votes from the public and votes from our judges.  The sixth song will be presented live and will also receive votes from our judges and the audience.  Your four highest scores will be combined to determine your rank and whether you are invited to the semi-finals. Our judges  will evaluate your work while offering instruction and suggestions for improvement.


Are you ready:  Your first song challenge is : Your Favorite Song


Record it on your phone or your tablet.  You can record it in a zoom session.  Or you can have a friend record you on a handicam.


You can sing to a track.  You can sing a cappella.  You can have someone accompany you.  But you must be the only singer.  (Occasionally, a pre-recorded song track contains background singers.  That's ok as long as you sing the lead).


Once we have your registration form and registration fee, we will send you instructions on how to send your song to us.  Once we receive your song, you will be sent the next challenge.  In the mean time, good luck and have fun.  We can't wait to hear your sing.


GRAND PRIZE:  The Skokie Idol winners from each category will be featured live in a free concert this summer.
