Get ready to warm up those vocal chords and get your songs prepared!

After a year hiatus, Cenla Idol is ready to return this August! 

This year's winner will receive an enormous incentive for the auditions of American Idol XIV.

The winner will get a gas card, hotel accomodation for two (2) nights in New Orleans plus get a meet-and-greet with at least one of the celebrity judges - Keith Urban, Jennifer Lopez and Harry Connick, Jr.!

In previous Cenla Idol competitions, the winner also received an all-important guaranteed First Round Audition for that year's American Idol competition.

But this year, for the first time ever, the winner will receive a guaranteed Second Round Audition in front of producers of American Idol XIV, also known as the "Silver Ticket" Round.  This means that if you auditioned for American Idol and didn't make it past the initial audition round, you can compete for Cenla Idol, win and immediately get into the Second Round of auditions for the show!

This year's Cenla Idol will take place at Alexandria Mall on Saturday, August 23.  Ten finalists will be chosen in the Audition Round to compete in the Final Round for the "Silver Ticket" later that afternoon.

American Idol XIV will premiere January 2015 on FOX 48.

The history of FOX 48's Cenla Idol have been posted to website Wikipedia since its early days.  However, due to the amount of history recorded for the now eleven year old competition, editors for the website have moved the historical data to its own page.

This move has allowed Cenla Idol to become the first local American Idol sanctioned competition to have its own Wikipedia entry.

American Idol returns January 2015!
