BET Wants Its Own Idol, and That's the Gospel Truth

On Oct. 4, BET will debut its own version of American Idol, Sunday Best. The holier-than-thou twist? The cabler isn't just looking for a great singer, they're looking for a great gospel singer. Poor Sanjaya — ruled out not one but two ways. Anyway, if you think your voice is a gift from God, you can testify on Aug. 4 in L.A., Aug. 11 in Atlanta or Aug. 18 in Chicago. Dialing 888-PSALMS-95 will get you the rest of the audition details and, no doubt, an amen.
