The Arts Council of Lincoln County decided to revive its Lincoln Idol competition this year--but with the pandemic, it had to be different.

With restrictions on the size of indoor gatherings, the two-night affair had limited seating at the Lincoln Cultural Center. On Friday night (Oct. 9th) the top 20 contestants chosen by local judges from all who entered performed. On Saturday evening (Oct. 10th), celebrity judges--Pat "Mother Blues" Cohen, John Landofi, and Bob Williford cast their votes for the best of the ten finalists. Their choice counted for 75% of the outcome; those who wanted to vote for contestants could pay $2 per vote with the public input counting for 25%.

Jordan Lowery, who just celebrated his 30th birthday a few weeks ago, was selected as the 2020 Lincoln Idol. Second place with to Ciara Davidson and third to Kenzie Kaylin. The winners received checks for $800, $500, and $300.

The Lincoln Idol competition was modeled after the successful tv show, "American Idol." LaRhonda Carlton won the first Lincoln Idol competition in 2015. Courtney Derr (Courtney Chay) was the winner in 2016.
