The first ever African Idol competition in Germany will be held on the 15th of December, 2012 in the City of Hamburg at Bidermannplatz 19. The contestants range from age 14 thru 26. This competition is targeted towards talented young singers, musicians, rappers and performers of African origin based here in Germany.
The overall winner stands a chance to win a substantial amount of cash and an experience of a life time in musical entertainment before a huge crowd. The winners will be selected by the total number of votes they receive. There are three categories of voting. Online voting, Judges Vote, and the Audience voting. The votes will be counted at the end of the show and the three contestants with the most votes, will be selected and crowned accordingly.
