Today King announced they will send two lucky people to the American Idol finale in LA, complete with airfare and lodging. To qualify, all you have to do is register on MyGame (click here) and submit your American Idol game score. If you haven’t tried the game already, you’ll see it takes talent. Your avatar sings and dances better based on your performance at clicking the arrows flying by (like DDR for your fingertips). If you don’t do well (like me), the crowd starts to boo and the judges will royally pan you. Eeek. I guess that’s one way to build a thick skin.
King is the world’s leading online social gaming company and have been partnering with Hollywood properties like American Idol, Deal or No Deal, and 1 vs 100 for some time. They’ve recognized the opportunity in bringing name-brand television properties to allow fans to continue to experience brand-name fun away from the TV.
Good luck with your American Idol online performance. Maybe you’ll actually get a chance to see the winner crowned in LA, along with Simon, Paula and Randy.
