DULUTH -- After three hours of auditions on June 3, the Duluth Idol competition has been whittled down to 24 contestants from ages 5 and up.

On Saturday, these aspiring songbirds are battling it out for first place in their respective divisions at the Duluth Festival Center.

There will be judges and the audience will have the chance to vote for their favorite performer by placing a ticket into bags marked with each contestants name. Those votes will be tallied with the judges vote to determine the four winners (in categories of ages 5-9, ages 10-13, ages 14-17, and ages 18 and up).

Winners from each age group performs at the Duluth Celebrates America event on July 3, plus other festivities in the city.
