Rod the Mod Wants You To Sing Back Up With Him

Rock and pop legend Stewart joins the social media generation

If you think Rod Stewart is just off taking ice baths to preserve the elasticity of his skin, think again. (He said: "I keep fit, and after anything I do, like cycling, swimming, football, I hop in a bath of ice water up to about my privates,” he confessed to USA Today. “Works wonders, it does.")

Rod, the Former Mod, is not only about to begin a stint at Las Vegas, but he is asking aspiring singers to submit videos of themselves in an effort to snare a job to perform with him in Las Vegas as a back-up singer. And no, this is not for a reality show, although it might sound like one.

If you can get your video together by Monday, Sept. 5, submit it to the singer’s website, The winner will be selected from among qualified submissions, with special consideration for top voted entries; meaning this is more like a reality show than we thought. In case you don’t know what a qualifies as a "qualified submission," consult the Terms & Conditions and Guidelines and Official Rules.

So what do you get if you win? His pink satin jacket from the cover of his Greatest Hits album? One of his old boaters? A soccer ball? Nope, the selected vocalist will join Stewart on stage for one song as a back-up vocalist for one night at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas in November 2011. Yes, just one song!

Travel and two nights’ accommodation will be provided. The winner’s appearance in Rod Stewart's performance will also be recorded and featured on and across Rod Stewart's social media channels.

The three highest voted submissions will receive signed merchandise and will also have their submissions featured on and across Rod Stewart's social media channels.
