Idol hunt in Kedah

The Star, Metro North
Tuesday June 2, 2009

THE Alor Star Tower management has begun a search to uncover Kedah’s musical talents under a contest called the ‘Tower Idol’ which is modelled after the popular television reality series ‘American Idol.’
Competitors must be aged 16 years and above.
Each participant is required to pay a registration fee of RM20.
The search had kicked off earlier in April at two venues in Sungai Petani (Tesco and Village Mall) and Bukit Mak Inson in Pendang.
The next one will be held at Jerai Plaza in Gurun on June 13.
This is followed by one at Langkawi in the Langkawi Parade shopping mall and several other venues for the next few months.
The singing competition will take a break during the fasting month of Ramadan.
The top two singers at each selection venue will be chosen to participate in the grand final to be held at the Alor Star Tower premises on Dec 26.
Alor Star Tower general manager Mazlan Mahmud said cash prizes of RM300, RM200 and RM100 would be given to the top three winners at each of the selection trial venues respectively.
He added that the champion at the grand finale would receive a cash prize of RM3,000, a trophy and a hamper.
Apart from receiving the prizes and earning the Tower Idol title, the champion would also get a chance to cut an album, Mazlan told a press conference recently.
Meanwhile, a series of fun-filled activities have been lined up for schoolchildren on the occasion of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong’s birthday at the Alor Star Tower on Saturday.
Among them are a heritage trail treasure hunt, a colouring contest, a skating competition, BMX Flatland racing activity, a photography event and an eat-all-you-can contest.
