BEEVILLE – It’s that time once again, and this year’s Bee ’N Idol competition is going to be huge.

For the third annual competition, there are 15 finalists competing for the top prize of a three-song recording session, a guest performance on the Domingo Live! TV show as well as a trophy for first, second and third place.

The event will be held at the annual Fusion Music Fest at the Bee County Expo Center on Saturday, July 13, starting at 3:30 p.m..

For the first time, the competition was opened up to all the surrounding counties as well as Bee County residents, which caused a surge in responses.

“We got a lot of singers from Karnes City, Refugio and Orange Grove, but the majority were from here,” Robert Cisneros, the founder of Fusion Music Fest, said.

More than 25 teens auditioned over the course of the two-day trials, which caused a change in the rules a bit.

Cisneros said, “We had a great turnout, the most we’ve ever had, so I figured we’d open it up to 15 finalists instead of just 10.”

During the Fusion Music Fest, a panel of judges will score each of the contestants on their pitch, vocal range and originality.

The 15 finalists will then be whittled down to five and will perform another song before the judges. The best three will reign supreme.

This year, the Fusion Music Fest will feature Robert Perez, Grupo Fusion and youngsters Elora and Gasoline Alley from San Antonio. Elora is actually only 14 years old and, along with being a performer, has published a children’s book, Making of a Kid’s Band.

The night will be brought to an end by the Loz Fleaz, who are described by Cisneros as a “high-energy show band ready to entertain the crowd.”

There will also be a guest appearance by Mickey and Minnie Mouse, who will be available for pictures as well as singing and dancing with the kids.

And if you want to get a sneak peek of all the contestants, they’ll be on the Domingo Live! show this Sunday, June 30.

Vendor spots are also still available for a limited time and can be reserved by calling Robert Cisneros at (361) 319-0864 or emailing him at cisnerosmusic@mail.com.
