The final auditions for Country Idol 2013 packed Vapor in Saratoga Casino and Raceway on Thursday, May 16, featuring a guest performance by the lead vocalists of Skeeter Creek.

Dozens of singers waited until the final night to try, however with Country Idol starting in January, contestants had 5 months to enter and make the auditions. Now, with over 100 singers hitting the big stage, here are the final 5 that will move on to the grand finale to sing for $5,000.  Skeeter Creek’s Renee, New York Players’ Patrick and Lou from GNA guested in the judges seat to help determine the winners.

Each contestant is scored on appearance (10 points), stage presence (15 points), and vocals (25 points).  The top 5 scoring contestants from each month are invited to the finals.  At the finals, on June 20th, the top 5 scoring finalists of the night will be invited to sing a second song, and from that second round, on the same night, the top scoring singer wins the grand prize of $5,000.
