Starting today (September 9) at 6pm ET, fans 14 years of age and older are invited to record their interpretations of songs featured in the hot new FOX series Glee (which debuts new episodes tonight) and posting their videos online at karaoke.myspace.com to be evaluated by judges in the Glee MySpace Karaoke Contest. The contest ends September 23, and a grand prize winner will be announced on or about October 21.
The grand prize winner will receive a trip to Hollywood to visit the set of Glee. Winners will be selected on the basis of singing ability, entertainment value and appeal. Runners-up will receive exclusive Glee merchandise and iTunes gift cards. Complete contest rules are also on the site.
Additionally, for every person who submits an entry, FOX will donate $1 (with a max contribution of $10,000) to the GRAMMY Foundation, a nonprofit group that offers music education to high school students nationwide through its GRAMMY in the Schools program.
For this first week, entrants may choose from any of the following songs that have been featured in the pilot episode or tonight’s season premiere:
- Amy Winehouse’s “Rehab”
- REO Speedwagon’s “Can’t Fight This Feeling”
- Kanye West’s “Gold Digger”
- Salt-N-Pepa’s “Push It”
New songs will be added to the roster each week on the site.
