For 27 finalists who came out on top of more than 50 online auditions to compete live in a reality show-style singing contest, the time has come to Sing For Your Life. Who’ll be selected for the Top 12?
To find out and be part of the show, you need to get your ass to Jungle on Thursday for the Sing For Your Life live auditions. Audience voting will help determine which 12 singers go into the weekly elimination singing competition that begins at Jungle on Jan. 10. Check out the 27 finalists who made the cut.
Thursday’s live auditions guest judge is Catherine Giel. You can also expect a guest performance by Atlanta singer, songwriter, performer and pianist NNXT with her electro indie pop stylings. Also on Thursday, the singer with the highest number of audience votes secures a spot in the Top 12. The other 11 hopefuls will be named at the third annual Glitter & Fur New Year’s Eve party.
Sing For Your Life is organized and judged by local gays Barry Brandon, JL Rodriguez and Michael Robinson. Since we last showed you some of the contenders, the three have been busy. They selected local actress, model and spokesperson Sarah B to emcee the series and held an online voting contest that named singer Amber Renee as SFYL’s early frontrunner (audition video below).
When the contest goes into full swing in January, some notable guest judges are in the works. On tap already are Ashley Reid (daughter of LA Reid) and Crystal Nicole (the singer-songwriter who’s written music for Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson and more). Word is that a certain Atlanta Pride performer and “Vampire Diaries” gay fave is close to guest judging as well.
