WXTX Fox 54 hosts 'Columbus Idol'

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) – With the last season of FOX's American Idol fast approaching, here is one person from the Chattahoochee Valley's chance to become the last Idol winner.

WXTX Fox 54 is hosting Columbus Idol, sponsored by Opelika Ford and iHeart Columbus Radio.

Here is how it works: each contestant will be given one minute to sing their hearts out in front of our cameras.

The auditions will take place on Saturday, Aug. 29 at The Loft Uptown Columbus from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. EST. Participants are not allowed to start a line until noon on Saturday.

The winning contestant will attend the American Idol judges' silver ticket round (not open to the public) on Sept. 13 in Atlanta, and that includes a hotel room for the winner and a guest.

Viewers will vote on contestants at WXTX.com, beginning on Aug. 31, and voters will decide for the winner. View the contest rules at FOX54soconnected.com.
