Dream of going toe-to-toe with Cookie?

Fox’s breakout hit Empire just announced a new contest — and the big prize is an appearance on the smash hit show. A nationwide bus tour is kicking off Thursday, July 16th in Los Angeles.

“The gold Empire bus, outfitted with a one-of-a-kind recording studio, will travel to 15 cities across the country, giving fans the opportunity to record their versions of Empire’s biggest hits. In addition, fans recording songs will also have the opportunity to record an a cappella version to submit in the FOX’s Next EMPIRE Artist contest, in which one lucky winner will appear as an Empire artist during Season Two,” according to a press release from the network.

The “FOX’s Next Empire Artist” bus will travel to all the major US cities.
American Idol may be coming to an end, but Fox is still finding ways for undiscovered artists to have their moment in primetime.
