If you’re like me, you are on the edge of your seat waiting to watch the Season 12 premiere of American Idol!
Besides the wacky contestants singing out-of-tune and vying for a chance to compete and win the top spot, everybody’s on deck to see if Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj will play nice during the live shows or will there be more catfighting and a fallout like in weeks past. But wait, you’re in luck! You don’t have to wait until Jan. 16th to see the first episode of Idol!
TOMORROW Wed. Jan. 9th Atlanta fans will have an opportunity to attend a live screening of American Idol at the World Premiere Screening Party for the 12th Season of American Idol! This exclusive event will take place on January 9th, where in addition to viewing Season 12’s first episode, you will have a chance to ask questions LIVE with judges Keith Urban, Randy Jackson, Mariah Carey and Nicki Minaj.
Originating from Royce Hall at University of California Los Angeles (UCLA), the debut episode and LIVE Q&A will be uplinked via television satellite from Los Angeles to venues in New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Detroit, Boston, Nashville, Washington, D.C., Atlanta and Houston. Fans can RSVP by logging on to www.idolrsvp.com and submitting their name and contact information. The unique promotional event will enable thousands to see the season’s first episode before it premieres on the network in a special two-night event Wednesday, Jan. 16 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) and Thursday, Jan.17 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Additionally, fans may submit questions for the participating talent now via the AMERICAN IDOL Facebook page (www.facebook.com/americanidol) and via Twitter (@AmericanIdol). Questions also may be submitted the day of the event via Twitter using #Idol. Fans watching the LIVE Q&A at the satellite venues also will have the opportunity to submit questions to the panel.
