Undercover is a biannual Illinois Wesleyan University student music competition that is sponsored by the Office of Student Activities and takes place in the Hansen Student Center.
All IWU students are eligible to audition for a chance to compete in the live competition. All competitors will sing two cover songs for a panel of guest judges who will consider both performance and audience response to determine the competition's winner. Some performers only sing the vocals while other groups may choose to play instruments as well. Past performances have included acoustic ballads, Motown's greatest hits, country songs and rock anthems. In recent years professional musicians and comedians have been invited to host the show. Check back to see if a celebrity performer will be appearing at Undercover 28.
