Music - Team Building - Fun
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!
A conference or dining room large enough to comfortably accommodate your group with a sound system, with an open area of approximately 12’ x 24’ to create the stage area. If available, an actual stage or riser will add to your events ambiance and excitement.
Additional space must be allocated for each group to create their presentations privately; a large meeting room or a series of small breakout rooms, one per team.
- Leverage people’s passion for music

No problem, we love to customize the song choices! Do you have a specific era or musical style you want to focus on? Let us know – we’ll be happy to oblige. Or do you have a specific theme you’re working with in your meeting? Communication, change, movement – these are just some of the themes past clients have asked for. What’s yours?
The Corporate American Idol event was a complete success! Paul was PHENOMENAL. I can’t rave about him enough!
A thousand THANK YOUs to you and Rob who facilitated in “exceeding our clients’ expectations” (and yes; that is directly from my client’s mouth!) Working with your team was a breeze and made my job easier and made us look great. Ultimately those are my goals, and they were met. The evening was a hit (no pun intended)
It was a great time. I have only received positive feedback from my team which is a rare thing. Please let Stuart know we loved it.
We had a great time and I received a lot of positive feedback from the team. They were surprised, had fun and enjoyed participating in multiple activities. Michael was amazing!
Just wanted to let you know that activity was a huge hit! Deric and the team did an amazing job…Very well done.
“It was an amazing day… and the team really enjoyed Tools for Schools. It meant a lot to them to help children in the community. There were many teary eyes, including mine!”
