-He may have gotten the boot on “American Idol,” but his fans have helped Alex Lambert get another gig and a chance at his dreams.
Alex Lambert quickly became a favorite on “American Idol” this season. He could sing and he had a mullet! Unfortunately, Alex was voted off the show way too soon and many fans were upset.
A viewer named Jessica Bongiorno created an online petition that attracted 20,000 signatures to date calling for Lambert’s reinstatement which impressed producers at 19 Entertainment who decided to give the 19-year-old Texan a second chance to fulfill his dream of becoming a music artist by inviting him to participate in If I Can Dream, a new talent discovery platform created by Simon Fuller.
To follow in the footsteps of Alex Lambert, aspiring artists and hopefuls from around the world are urged to submit their audition videos exclusively on MySpace by April 16th for the opportunity to be chosen to visit the “Dream” house and to prove that they have what it takes to “make it” in Hollywood and potentially to become the next artist to move in.
America can watch the show at www.hulu.com / www.ificandream.com. Alex moved into the house yesterday. Moving to Hollywood and into the If I Can Dream house will give Alex the ultimate second shot at fulfilling his dreams. He will meet with top music managers and record labels and have the opportunity to perform in front of live audiences at clubs and venues in LA. His fans will be able to follow his every move and will be able to give Alex real-time feedback as he writes and tests out new songs on If I Can Dream.
Tune into Hulu every Tuesday morning (shortly after midnight PST) for new episodes of If I Can Dream and go to www.ificandream.com to watch the 24/7 live stream.
Another familiar face you’ll see in the “If I Can Dream” house is model-turned-singer & ex-boyfriend of Miley Cyrus, Justin Gaston.
