The Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony program invites AMERICAN IDOL ® fans and music lovers to participate in the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to help chart-topping singer/songwriter and recording artist Carly Rae Jepsen select the best lyrics for a new song. Fans can watch live as she performs the song during the first episode of the two-night AMERICAN IDOL ® Season Finale on Wednesday, May 15 (8-9 p.m. ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX. Through Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony fans can take part in the songwriting process and influence the show they love. In addition to assisting with the creation of the song, people will have the opportunity to impact various aspects of Jepsen’s Perfect Harmony AMERICAN IDOL ® Finale performance as well. “I wrote or co-wrote nearly every song on my album and the songwriting process is very important to me,” said Jepsen. “I’ve collaborated on songs with people via e-mails, telephone calls and text messages, but the Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony program takes it to another level because people across the country can join in on the fun. I can’t wait to create a new song with my fans.” Music has the power to bring people together and fans can now go to www.AmericanIdol.com/PerfectHarmony and play a role in this collective effort to create the next hit song. The 2013 edition of Coca-Cola Perfect Harmony features several new elements. People not only will be able to collaborate on the lyrics by letting Jepsen know which option they think best fits the song, but they also can weigh in on aspects like set design, backup dancers’ wardrobe and stage effects, creating a truly collaborative final performance. Starting now through May 14, people around the country, ages 13 and up, can log on and provide input each week for Jepsen’s new song and her performance on the AMERICAN IDOL ® Season Finale. During weeks one, three, five and seven of the program, music lovers can listen to three different lyrics for a particular verse and choose the one they like best. Each week the lyric selected by the fans will be incorporated into the song.
