Back for a fifth season ICON 2018 is a singing competition much like "American Idol" meshed with "The Voice" but in the genre of musical theater. 90 contestants will sing at one of the six ELIMINATION ROUNDS. Each round will be judged by three industry professionals whose scoring will advance one out of each group of 15 artists. The audience will also get a chance to vote on their favorite, advancing a SECOND artist directly to the SEMIFINALS on November 25th.


The Semifinals will narrow the pool down to the FINAL FIVE, where an industry panel stocked with agents, press, recording artists and instructors will deem one lucky artist the distinction of ICON 2018. The grand prize is $5000 CASH and well as a myriad of other prizes including UCPAC producing and casting the winner in their DREAM ROLE in the show of their choosing.
