Pinellas seniors audition for Bright House Networks' Bright Stars Senior Idol talent show

CLEARWATER

Each year folks over age 55 take to the stage to sing, dance, play instruments or show off their other talents, hoping to win the right to compete in Bright House Networks' Bright Stars Senior Idol talent show and perhaps be named the winner. On Wednesday, Pinellas seniors showed up at Clearwater's Japanese Garden mobile home park to audition for the show. Three judges heard dozens of acts — instrumental musical, dance, vocal and even a magic act. Ten performers from the Pinellas audition will be selected to perform in a regional final audition at the Largo Cultural Center on Feb. 19 at 2 p.m., where three will be selected to join nine finalists from three other regional auditions (Hillsborough, Pasco and Manatee). Finalists will compete in the Senior Idol show April 4 at 7 p.m. at Ruth Eckerd Hall. The audience will vote for a winner, the "Senior Idol," who will receive $500 outright and $500 for a favorite charity.
