McDonald's Singing Contest

McDonald's Will Serve Up a Song With Your Fries

McDonald's released a casting call to its 1.6 million restaurant workers worldwide for its second biannual Voice of McDonald's contest. The first contest was in 2006 but this year there's a twist — people can vote online for their favorite contestants. They received 3,600 video auditions from singing workers across the globe and have narrowed the pool to 14 finalists that will compete at a McDonald's convention in April. The prize? $25,000.

McDonald’s executives created the contest as a way to display their talented employees and jazz up the “McJob.” The company’s executive vice president and chief human resources officer made a good point when he said, “if you just assume that the top 1 percent are going to be fantastic singers, dancers, comedians, that’s a lot of people.” They debated between singing and dancing but singing won because contestants could show off their skills at work. You can see biographies and videos of the finalists online.

Someone's channeling American Idol!
