The contestants for FOX 50’s Gimme the Mike! are singing scales, selecting wardrobes and making the final preparations for their premiere appearances on the local original contest series. FOX 50 will tape the first five shows next week; the episodes are set to air week-by-week beginning April 21st.
Each of the first five episodes will pit four contestants against one another, for a total of twenty competitors. Judges will pick a nightly winner who will advance to the one-hour, live finale on May 25th.
The tapings for these five episodes will be held at the BTI Center in downtown Raleigh on Wednesday, April 13, 2005, at 5:30pm, 7pm and 8:30pm, and on Thursday, April 14, at 6:30pm and 8pm.
Tapings are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Seating begins 30 minutes prior to taping. No one will be admitted once taping begins.
Gimme the Mike! will premiere on FOX 50 on April 21st at 7:30pm. Viewers will also get a chance to participate in the excitement by selecting a Wild Card contestant each night from among the three contestants not voted to the finals by the judges. A Wild Card Show will then be held on May 24th. All five Wild Cards will compete and again be voted on by viewers. The contestant with the most votes will become the Ultimate Wild Card and compete with the other five contestants on the one-hour live finale on May 25th.
Come to the BTI Center and watch the excitement in person as twenty area hopefuls compete for a chance at stardom.
