Steve Langstaff (25) from Hull and Shea Taylor (22) from Derby went along to the auditions at the Viking FM studios in July and have been short-listed along with 52 other finalists.
Finalists will be chosen at random to join presenter Mark Somers on-air during the 96.9 Viking FM breakfast show between 7am and 9am.
Towards the end of the show the presenter will get a call on the special Radio Idol hotline. The ‘Boss’ will tell Mark whether the finalist will live to fight another day or whether they are dumped. The presenter will then relay this decision to the finalist on-air.
If the Boss decides that the finalist will not return, another finalist will be chosen at random. Listeners then have to vote for who they want to become the Viking FM Radio Idol. The person or people with the most votes will get their own slot on the station.
