    I've been checking the forums and the MSTechEd site. Haven't seen any info released yet. Don't see any blocks for it on the agenda or in the content catalog. 

    Was planning on giving it a go.. =P

    Was just curious if anyone has seen anything?

    @asyrewicze:  Speaker Idol contestants are invited from those who have never spoken at TechEd before and they submitted breakout session proposals to TechEd North America 2014 but were declined.

    Don't forget to stop by the Digital Wall each day at 12:30pm to watch Speaker Idol.

    Ahh..  ok that makes sense. Guess I always assumed ideas were presented onsite at the start of the week, and any of those chosen, would then present for speaker idol.

    Now I feel silly =D.

    Will keep that in mind for TechEd 2015!

    Thanks for the reply!

    Too bad... This answers my question in another thread... Was hoping to give it a go... Oh well, just have to visit the sessions from "Mark and Mark" and learn from them.

    Bert - You can hang with me and see how its organized and I'll introduce you to them. I'm entered this year (again :} ) They sometimes do however have a wildcard place open so if someone else can't make it ... you could wing a spot ...and a few times the wildcard guy happened to win ...so you never know.

    Awesome Adnan, I'll look you up at the Krewe party on Sunday evening, then we'll have to sync schedules and stuff... :)
