Audition Star: Miles SigginsMiles Siggins
Born near Liverpool in the swinging sixties, Miles was 11 years old when he first flirted with fashion during the Queen's Silver Jubilee in 1977, the same year punk rock was born in England.
At 17 he went to work for British designer Paul Smith at one of his two stores, in Nottingham. This was Miles' first contact with bands like ABC, the Human League and Simply Red because they all shopped at Paul Smith, as did megastars like Mick Jagger and David Bowie.

In the late '80s, Miles moved to London, still employed by Smith, to help open what is now a block of Paul Smith stores in Covent Garden. Then another shop, World Service, hired Miles away. At the time, World Service was one of the hottest labels for musicians to wear. All of the 'new' pop stars, like Madonna, were shopping there.

In 1990, Miles and a colleague launched iconic streetwear label Stussy in the U.K., with great success. Miles was responsible for sales, marketing and buying the product for Great Britain. Miles and his business partner also started Gimme 5, a distribution company that launched labels such as Hysteric Glamour, Goodenough and A Bathing Ape. A fashion-hungry British public greeted these new companies with great acclaim.

Miles moved to the U.S. in 1994 to start a career in styling, working more directly with celebrities. His work has appeared in many publications, including Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, I-D, Interview, British GQ and Flaunt. He has also styled videos for bands like Three Doors Down and Korn, and solo artists such as Michael Bublé, Ice Cube and Warren G.

In 1999, Miles moved back to London for two years to work exclusively with musician and photographer Bryan Adams, on tour imaging, styling photo shoots, album covers, videos and personal wardrobe. Miles and Bryan still work on various projects together to this day.

Moving back to L.A. in the middle of 2001, a friend suggested that Miles meet Ken Warwick, one of the executive producers of "American Idol." It turned out that Miles and Ken were born two miles apart. That helped seal the deal to have Miles join the production staff of "Idol" in the series' second season. Miles is now working on season 11 and has recently finished a six-year stint working with singer Michael Bublé.

Special projects range from style forecasting for AOL, webisodes for Tanactin, Rich & Skinny Denim and Aczone, to English Bespoke tailor Timothy Everest's imaging in the U.S. and collaborating with Christopher Bailey, the designer of Burberry, on a custom made wardrobe for Ryan Seacrest to wear on "American Idol."

Miles lives in Los Angeles with his wife and two children.

KIMBERLEY LOCKE gained fame with her participation in the 2003 American Idol television series where she was second runner up. She recently released her EP, "Four For The Floor" via I AM Entertainment and will release her radio single, "Finally Free," this year.

Immediately following "American Idol," Locke was signed to Curb Records where she enjoyed a very successful career as a recording artist, having had eight Top 20 Adult Contemporary hits and four #1 Dance hits across various Billboard charts. She has also made history as being the only recording artist to score a #1 Christmas song on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart three years in a row. Last year, her #1 club hit, a remake of the Freda Payne classic "Band of Gold," was included on Billboard's "Top 50 Dance Songs of the Decade" list.

In 2010 she released her dance single "Strobelight," a collaboration with "Idol" judge and producer Randy Jackson's Dream Merchant 21 label and INgrooves. "Strobelight" hit Billboard's Hot Dance Club Chart several times upon its release.
For the past seven years, Locke has been actively involved with One Heartland, a national non-profit organization committed to improving the lives of children and their families impacted by HIV/AIDS, where she is one of the organization's board of directors. She has also worked with several other HIV/AIDS related charities, including the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation, YouthAIDS, Nashville CARES, and the Davy Foundation. In 2007, Locke was presented with the Red Ribbon Award in recognition for her extensive charitable efforts as an HIV/AIDS activist.

Locke didn't stop with just her music career from the years since "Idol." She has been a staple in the entertainment industry having signed a modeling contract with Ford Models wherein she landed a two-year deal with clothing retailer Lane Bryant and became the face of their national Seven7 Jeans Designer Collection campaign. She went on to appear in VH1'S "Celebrity Fit Club" where she lost 40 lbs. and became a national spokesperson for Jenny Craig. She maintains a healthy and fit lifestyle and inspires women across the country with their weight loss and sense of empowerment.

Nashville native Locke received a Bachelor's of Business Administration in Management from Belmont University. Kicking her business aspirations into high gear, she founded her own entertainment company in early 2011 called I AM Entertainment. This new endeavour allows her to not only take full control over her own career but to aid other artists in the development of their brands and products.

In addition to various tour dates and performances, Locke has branched out as a television personality oftentimes hosting Red Carpet events for "E!," "American Idol®," "Extra," and "The Insider."
