The 13 finalists will each perform two songs during the finals set to begin at 4 p.m. Saturday at Bonita Lakes Mall's Center Court.
The finalists will be judged on vocal performance, stage presence and audience participation.
The winner will receive a trophy, $1,000 cash, a $1,000 mall shopping spree, a year's supply of Coca-Cola, 10 front row seats to the Rockin' Road House Tour Concert set for May 30 at the Lauderdale County Agri-Center and the opportunity to open for the concert.
