Help Jason Derulo Create Song For The American Idol Finale
For anyone who has a knack for music, but doesn't have the singing voice to get a ticket to Hollywood, Coca-Cola has you covered. Music has the power to bring people together, and through the Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony initiative, American Idol fans across the country will have the opportunity to create a new song with award-winning artist Jason Derulo. Songwriters and music fans will get the chance to help write a track that will be performed onstage at the American Idol finale.
"I've written songs for some of the most recognized performers in music today and no matter how talented an artist is, a hit song is always a collaborative effort," said Jason Derulo. "From the producers to the writers to the talent performing the song, music comes to life as thanks to a team effort, which is exactly what Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony is all about. I can't wait to collaborate with all of the IDOL fans out there to create a new song."
Starting today, fans can log on to www.AmericanIdol.com/PerfectHarmony where they can listen to the opening segment of a song-in-the-making by Jason Derulo. Each week, hopefuls from around the country, ages 18 and up, will submit their own lyrics to contribute to the song. Following each of the four submission phases, Coca-Cola will select the top three lyrics and then fans, ages 13 and up, will have their say as they vote for their favorite. The lyric with the most votes will then be incorporated into the song, taking it one step closer to being ready for Jason to perform on the first night of the two-night finale of AMERICAN IDOL, airing Tuesday, May 22 (8/9 p.m. ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.
As an incentive, fans who submit lyrics into the contest, as well as those who vote for the submissions, will be entered into a sweepstakes drawing to win various prizes. Prizes for the program include a Jason Derulo digital autograph, free Coke for a year or a trip for two to the AMERICAN IDOL finale.
