Kidz Bop 24, the latest volume in the best-selling Kidz Bop audio series, is the sixth consecutive Kidz Bop title to debut in the Top 3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
Timed with the release of Kidz Bop 24, Kidz Bop launched its annual talent competition, Kidz Star USA, America’s biggest online talent search for kids ages 15 and under. This summer, Kidz Bop has teamed up with Six Flags Entertainment to bring The Official Kidz Star Live Audition Tour to 10 different Six Flags Theme Parks, where kids can audition live for the first time ever. Aspiring young singers can enter for their chance to win an RCA Records recording contract in two ways. Kids can upload a 90-second performance video to KidzBop.com or audition in person at select Six Flags Theme Parks.
Auditions and activities are free with paid park admission. TV and film star Jennette McCurdy is this year’s celebrity mentor and will help select the 2013 Kidz Star USA Grand Prize Winner. Four finalists will be flown to Hollywood to compete on stage at a Six Flags Magic Mountain finale event on September 28, where McCurdy will make a special appearance and help determine who will be crowned the next Kidz star. The winner will be announced this October.
