SCOTT AIR FORCE BASE, Ill. –
Air Mobility Command is searching for the next AMC Icon.
The AMC Icon program is loosely based around the hit TV program, American Idol.
All AMC installations will conduct base level talent shows during July and August. Local contestants compete for $1,000 in cash prizes. The top finishing Air Force vocalist will then compete for $2,000 in cash prizes at the command level.
This year's Icon will see one substantial change from previous years.
Base finalists will not travel to Headquarters AMC at Scott AFB to compete in a live performance.
Instead, AMC installations will submit a video of their finalist's performance to be judged by our expert panel of celebrity judges.
All videos will also be posted online for all to view. The top three finalists will receive cash awards of $1,000, $600 and $400; respectively.
The AMC Icon program also features a special category for those Air Force members not stationed on or near an AMC host base. AMC affiliate participants can enter by forwarding a music video showcasing their talents. Cash awards are available in this category as well, and the winner will also compete in the command finals.
Interested participants are encouraged to contact their base Force Support Squadron Marketing office for additional information including your base's local competition. Local base shows are open to all ID card holders 18 and older.
