Craig Lewis in search of FAME

On the movie FAME Weekend, FUTURE readers we introduce you to CRAIG LEWIS.

Ten diverse performers competed for their shot at fame at Six Flags Magic Mountain on Saturday, September 5, in front of a panel of celebrity judges including Grammy Award-winning artist Ciara.

Judges Ciara, Kevin Tancharoen, director of the re-invented film "Fame," and Ashlan Gorse, E! News show host, named singing duo Craig Lewis as the grand prize winner in the Fame National Talent Search finale.

"You're like all The Jackson 5s rolled into two," said Gorse in her appraisal of the Craig Lewis performance. Jeffery Lewis and Zuri Craig, the duo from Atlanta, Ga., took the stage with neon clothing and cartoon backpacks, shocking the judges as they belted out their rendition of "Out Here on My Own" from the movie "Fame."

Audience members of all ages screamed for Craig Lewis as they worked their way past the stage and into the stands. Post-show, Ciara said she was judging on a number of factors, which made it a tough call between Craig Lewis and singer Georgia Napolitano from Texas.

"It's about the charisma, talent, stage presence, energy, that connection," she said. Lewis said he had no idea he and singing partner, Craig, were going to win. "I can't even think of the words to explain what I'm feeling," said the 26-year-old. Craig, 24, expected winning to change his life, but not until after celebrating his victory with some thrills at Magic Mountain.

Craig Lewis won a $5,000 cash prize, a photo spread in OK! Magazine, a five day trip to Hollywood to meet with a top agent and studio executive, a VIP card valued at $1,500 to Johnny Rockets, a gift card to Sephora, as well the inclusion of their winning performance on the "Fame" DVD. The movie "Fame" releases in theaters Sept. 25.

The duo has amassed an impressive amount of fans, their most popular YouTube video has over 600,000 views, and their ever-growing fan base includes some celebrity admirers such as American Idol winner, Fantasia Barrino and Oscar Award winning actress and American Idol contestant, Jennifer Hudson to name a few .
