Are You The Next Karaoke SuperStar?

It's time to get down to business with another Official SingSnap Contest! If you thought the prizes in the last contest were impressive, you're not going to want to miss this one!

The prizes are bigger, the stakes are higher and you can count on the competition being stiffer! SingSnap is in search of the next great Karaoke SuperStar and it could be you! Do you like singing and performing on camera? Do you feel you are versatile and can master all genres? Do you like to have fun, participate and gets tons of exposure? If any of that sounds appealing, then you absolutely must audition today! Read below for the details!

Karaoke SuperStar Concept:

We are in search of someone who has a versatile voice and personality and who is not afraid to put on a show! There will be five rounds in total but the fifth round details will be kept a secret for now. For the first four rounds, each contestant will be required to sing a song from a different genre.

Auditions & General Information: (July 17-July 23). Auditions are open to absolutely any member on the site. You must sing a song from one of the following genres; Rock, Country, RnB/Soul or Pop. The song must be found under those links and you must follow the SingSnap classification. No exceptions will be made and no songs will be re-classified for this contest.

There's a catch! You must choose carefully, because once you sing a song from a specific genre, that genre is no longer available to you for the duration of the contest! A bit of strategy has to come into play. Do you audition with your strongest genre, or do you keep it for the more advanced rounds? The longer you stay in the contest, the more genres you will have to attempt so good luck!

The song must also be performed on camera. Your video will be worth significant points so put some thought into it. Editing will not be allowed. It must be a one-shot, straight up video but definitely get creative and put some thought and consideration into your performance. See rules and guidelines for more information!

Round One - Top 200: (July 24 - July 29) You must sing any song from one of the three remaining genres. Video will be required.

Round Two - Top 50: (July 30 - August 3) You must sing any song from one of the two remaining genres. Video will be required.

Round Three (Semi-Finals) - Top 10: (August 4 - August 7) You must sing any song from the remaining genre. Video will be required.

Round Four (Finals) - Top 3: (August 8 - 11) To be Announced! Video will be required.

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!

The Invited Panel

Mr_Ada

The auditions will also be judged by our devoted SingSnap Events Team! Thank You ladies for always being so wonderful and dedicated!

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!
