While the hit television series American Idol weeds through some vocally-challenged candidates, Rochester Institute of Technology’s Student Government is treating its student body to the top talent on its campus, Feb. 1, during the finals of its annual Tiger Idol competition. The event takes place 9-11 p.m. in RIT’s Clark Gym.

Twelve sets of performers, who have already auditioned in front of a panel of Student Government judges, will each perform one act to start the competition. This year’s performers include vocalists, rap artists, a pianist, a comedian and dancers. A panel of judges will narrow down the performances to the top three finalists. Those finalists will each perform one more time before the audience selects a winner.

The event is only open to the RIT community.
