POPSearch is the Boston Pops' nationwide talent competition that offers amateur singers the chance to perform with the orchestra at Boston's Fourth of July Extravaganza, as well as on the orchestra's national tour. The winner also receives a $5,000 cash prize. In its third year, the American Idol-style competition has expanded into a nationwide contest through video submissions on YouTube.com and voting through BostonPops.org. Deadline for applications is May 23. This year's competition opened on May 9, and the winner will be announced at the Boston Pops concert on June 28.
