Welcome back to another exciting week on Hooping Idol, our award winning contest leading us all on an ever spinning search to find the planet’s next big hooper star! Our final five are about to go head to head for Performance Week, the final obstacle between them and our amazing Hooping Idol 3 Finale with a shot at the Ultimate Hooping Idol 3 Prize Package worth more than $2500.
For those of you just tuning in here’s what you’ve missed on Hooping Idol 3 thus far. We met our 21 finalists for season three and met our four distinguished judges. The first challenge was 90s Dance Hits Week and five hoopers were sent home. Next up Hooping Idol Went Country for Country Week and six more were eliminated, leaving us with our Hooping Idol 3 Top Ten. Next came Fairy Tales Week and 3 were eliminated, followed by
Tribal Week and 2 more were sent home. Then our final five went head-to-head for Performance Week, all hooping to the same song. Two were eliminated leaving us with three outstanding finalists making it to Hooping Idol 3’s Grand Finale!
Our final three had one last video to make and this one was entirely up to them. After all, when you’re this close to winning our Hooping Idol Ultimate Prize Package you should be doing it entirely on your own creativity and talent with no theme or restraint holding you back. The hooper that delivers the total package tonight in our search for the next great hooper star will become our new Hooping Idol – and nobody knows more about what it takes to win than our previous winners. Nick Broyd from Season One who lives in Bristol, England, UK, and Hannah Flett from Season Two who lives in Exeter, England, UK, are here as special guest judges for the final showdown!
You all know our distinguished panel of regular judges as well: Anah “Hoopalicious” Reichenbach of Hoop Revolution, the Canadian whirlwind that is Babz Robinson, global superstar Marawa The Amazing from the UK, and legendary hula hooping icon Mat Plendl. They’ve shared their thoughts all season long, plus they’ve had a vote this year in deciding who will be awarded the title of Hooping Idol and spin away with our Ultimate Hooping Idol Prize Package. What’s in that prize package you ask? Let us tell you all about it one more time.
Our Hooping Idol 3 Ultimate Prize Package starts off with a totally rockin’ registration to one of Hoop Revolution’s upcoming teacher trainings for 2013 to learn even more from the Mother of Hoop Dance herself – Anah “Hoopalicious” Reichenbach (a $600 Value) along with an Original EcoHoop™ from Hoop Revolution® – the world’s first recycled plastic hoop (Spring sale price $25, regularly $34.99), plus Hoop Revolution’s highly anticipated Core Foundation DVD. We’re also so excited this year to be sending our Hooping Idol to Hoopcamp 2013, the biggest annual event specifically for hoopers on the planet. Now in it’s 6th year it’s five days and four nights of the most incredible workshops, hoopjams and more – and they’ll be performing in Hoopcamp 2013’s Amazing Hooper Showcase ($549 value). If you’re going to be a Hooping Idol you’re going to need the most kickass rockin’ LED hoop on the planet too – the Atomic Evoke 4 with DOUBLE the LEDS from Astral Hoops! Doubling the LEDs not only makes your new hoop super bright, it also helps the more complex patterns being created stand out with a whole new freakin level of clarity ($449 value)! WOW! Hooping.org also really wants to support our new Hooping Idol in being able to take things to the next level by giving them two months of site-wide graphic advertising ($200 a month, a $400 value) to get their name, performances and hooping business out there. With more than 10 million hits to our name, Hooping.org is the ultimate place to reach hoopers and those who wanna be. We had more than 60,000 hits from 40,000 unique visitors last week alone, making the actual cost of advertising with us so ridiculously cheap. Do the math! And to ensure that our Hooping Idol will be able to set the night on fire and look even hotter doing it, we’ve got a sizzling five wick Harmonic Hoops fire hoop so they can burn it up ($130 value) – and a Harmonic Threads $50 gift certificate for some super cool handmade clothes. And just in case we’re missing anything, our friends at HoopSupplies.com have got you covered with a $200 gift certificate (including shipping) to get exactly what you want and need.
And we have a few more prize additions from the remaining Hooping Idol Judges themselves. Mat Plendl will be giving our Hooping Idol a 90 minute private lesson or 60 minute phone consultation to help them kick it into high gear and Marawa the Amazing is donating some super cool stickers.
Our second and third place finishers will also be receiving a $50 gift certificate from HoopSupplies.com and a $25 gift certificate from Harmonic Threads. Hooping.org thanks all of our Hooping Idol prize sponsors for their incredible generosity and support. It wouldn’t be Hooping Idol without you! Thank you soooo much!
And without any further ado it’s time for our Hooping Idol 3 Grand Finale featuring our three remaining finalists who are each giving their best shot at winning it all.
