This Thursday, FOX will be launching a nationwide bus tour, with stops in 15 U.S. cities. The custom EMPIRE bus, which comes outfitted with a mobile recording studio, will allow fans in each city to record their own versions of the show’s most popular tracks. They will also be given the opportunity to submit an a cappella version of their recordings to “FOX’s Next Empire Artist” competition.
One lucky fan will be selected to appear on EMPIRE during the show’s upcoming second season.
The contest submission period begins begins 7/16/15 and ends 9/23/15 at 11:59:59 pm ET. Contestants must be legal residents of any of the 50 United States, and must also be at least 18 years of age. Go HERE for official contest rules.
