You could be a star on American Idol with a chance to tryout at the Illinois State Fair.
During Thursday’s media preview day fair manager Amy Bliefnick says the final pieces for the juried competition came together late Wednesday.
Though Bliefnick says the big named judges won’t be present, it still gives fairgoers a chance to compete and move on to the next stage of the nationally televised singing competition show.
The tryouts will be the first Friday and Saturday of the fair, August 8th and 9th. Singers from the last season of American Idol will perform at the Grandstand Friday August 8th.
