Highlight: Vote for your idol at Gidol

Thursday, July 27, 2006 7/27/2006 08:22:00 AM

We have long been fans of Gidol here; we feel it's a super innovative way to use Google Video to create communities and content. The basic premise should sound familiar to anyone who's seen an 'Idol' TV show - people record themselves with a song, upload it, and go head-to-head against another video, with the viewers voting on what they like best. Visit Gidol to see more, and check out some of our favorites below.
