What is KC SuperStar?
Produced by the Jewish Community Center of Greater Kansas City, KC SuperStar is an “American Idol” style competition that crowns the best high school singer in the metropolitan area. This year, more than 200 students from over 80 metro high schools registered to participate in the preliminary auditions. Judges selected 22 singers to move on to the Semifinals competition, which will be held at the White Theatre at the Jewish Community Center. From the semifinalists, a different set of judges will select 10 singers to compete at the Finals.
During the summer, the KC SuperStar Finalists receive coaching from the event’s executive producer, musical director and choreographer. In August, this great group of contenders perform in a high energy show for a sold-out audience of more than 1500 at Yardley Hall on the Johnson County Community College Campus.
