Why this event?

Corporate America’s got talent and here’s your chance to show yours! At the Corporate Idol program, teams rewrite lyrics to famous songs and perform them in an unforgettable team building music activity inspired by the hit TV show American Idol.  

Background music tracks are provided for each band so they can rehearse for their big performance.  An exciting assortment of professional costumes (wardrobe) are also provided to make the grand performance unique and memorable! Teambonding’s costume trunk includes: wigs, boas, scarves, sunglasses, Blues Brothers hats, capes, hats, gloves, masks and a whole lot more. 

Our facilitator/MC hosts the performance. On stage and under the lights, teams perform for the judges. The big evening performance features a professional TeamBonding Master of Ceremonies, plus all the trappings of a real concert. This can include a draped stage area, stage lights, smoke machine, etc. We also provide a large prop box filled with fun and funky performance-enhancing accessories. No wonder so many clients arrange to have their event videotaped!

The judges – either VIPs from your company, or from our team – comment on each performance. But, they don’t have the final say. The audience does! After a brief commercial pause – during which teams can get refreshments – the votes are tallied.  Then, the winners are revealed and teams receive their awards.  Cue the American Idol theme music!
