Karaoke SuperStar: Round One!

The auditions have ended and one thing is for certain - there is no shortage of SuperStar's in SingSnap! Holy smokes, the talent presented during the auditions has left the judges bewildered. Fabulous job to everyone who auditioned and gave it their all!

If you are fortunate to advance on to Round One please please read over both the vocal and video requirements for this round. If you do not advance, please stand up and take a bow because you still did a fabulous job. We hope you'll stick around and cheer on your favorite competitors!

I also want to thank the Judges and Annie for working tirelessly behind the scenes in an effort to make this contest run smoothly!

The Top 200:

Without further delay, I announce the Top 200 in alphabetical order. If your name appears on this list you have advanced on to Round One! Please read the rules carefully!

Invited Panel & Judging Criteria!

We aim to please and wanted to respond to some feedback we received from the last contest. We have held Auditions for judges for our official contests. While the auditions will be ongoing, we have selected an invited panel of judges who will be responsible for narrowing down the talent and eventually selecting our Top Ten Performers!

Please join me in giving a huge round of applause for the Invited Panel. In agreeing to judge this contest, they are forfeiting an opportunity to compete for these amazing prizes! They're donating their time and talent to helping ensure that SingSnap has a fair, fun and fabulous contest!

Judging Criteria!

Below is the criteria in which you will be judged on. Keep in mind that both vocal and video are important. Consider these questions/tips when preparing your audition!

Vocal Criteria (20 Points):

1. Pitch & Tone - 5 Points: Are you singing the song in a pitch/key that suits your voice? Are the individual notes on point? Do you go off key? Does your voice have a pleasant tone that fits the song?

2. Phrasing/Enunciation - 5 Points: Is your voice clear and concise? Do you sing the song with the correct phrasing? Do you hold and end the notes well?

3. Emotional Engagement - 5 Points: Do you connect with the song and deliver it with conviction? Make us 'believe' in the song and that you're telling your story.

4. Overall Song Choice: - 5 Points: Does the song showcase your voice? Does it fit tone? How well does your song choice challenge you? Is it a difficult song or way too easy? Do you make it 'sound' easy? Does it fit the genre requirements?

Video Criteria (15 Points):

1. Look - 5 Points: Costumes, make-up, appearance. Make an effort to 'look' the part of whatever you may be performing. Use facial expressions and play up the emotional/fun factor.

2. Staging/Blocking - 5 Points:Set the scene! Use props, body positions, lighting, camera filters? Move, create shadows, use body language! Set the tone and feel for the video.

3. Over All Presentation - 5 Points: Make sure your video matches your song choice. Make a creative connection! Tell a story! You are not allowed to edit so use your imagination and create a story line! Make the judges feel your song throughout your presentation. Connect the song/your voice with the video.

Good Luck Everyone!
