Star Search 

Move over, Justin Timberlake. Memphis may have a new pop star on the horizon. The Memphis Grizzlies are holding a "Grizzlies Idol 2006" search at the FedExForum to find talented folks for their dance teams, half-time performers, anthem singers, and more.

Try outs begin on August 12th, when dancers present their best jazz-hands in hopes of being on one of the Grizzlies dance teams. There are options for various ages: the Junior Grizzlies Dance Team is for ages 6 to 14, the Grizzlies Dance Team is ages 18 and up, and the Grizzlies Grannies and Grandpas (yes, seriously) is ages 50 and up. Dance auditions will also be held on August 19th and August 26th.

You like to sing? Head to the National Anthem auditions on September 9th, open to both singers and instrumental musicians hoping to perform at home games. For those whose talents can't easily be categorized -- jugglers, clowns, George W. Bush, contortionists -- auditions for half-time performers are on September 16th. One talented person will even win season tickets.

There's also an opening for a new public address announcer -- that guy (or gal) who reads the lineup, announces all the players, reads advertisements, and more. All ages are welcome to audition.

"Grizzlies Idol 2006" search, August 12th-September 16th, FedExForum. For more information, including registration and scheduling, see www.grizzlies.com or call 888-HOOP.
