Pride Idol's final show Tuesday at R Place

by Shaun Knittel - SGN Staff Writer

The Seattle Out and Proud (SOAP) Pride Idol final event is June 23 at 9:30 p.m. at R Place. The winner of the singing competition will perform on the SOAP float at the Gay Pride Parade June 28. The lucky crooner will be awarded a $1,000 cash prize. For five weeks, local talent signed up to sing a song of their choice every Tuesday night at R Place.

The competition quickly gained popularity; I was at the wildcard round June 16, and it was standing-roomonly. I was absolutely blown away by the eight karaoke competitors, who had to sing two songs for the wildcard round instead of the usual one-song routine. The entertainment ranged from country and western to rock 'n' roll and anything you could think of in between. Just like the TV show, American Idol, the contestants are critiqued by a panel of judges' some naughty, some nice, and the audience texts their vote to Verizon Wireless so their favorite contestant can win.

For the final show, SOAP organizers are bringing in a special guest judge and the winners from all the previous competitions. The night is sure to be packed with entertainment, so be sure to get there early if you want a seat. Fans of Seattle Pride Idol didn't need Adam Lambert to come out, because at R Place, everyone's Gay!
