Welcome To The Hottest Duet Contest To Hit The World Wide Web!

Back by popular demand is another SingSnap Official Contest and this one is for big bucks! We are super excited to announce our very first contest with CASH PRIZES!

This will be a 100% singing contest. While cams are welcome and encouraged, the only thing that will be judged is your voice! So if you think you can sing and want to win yourself some money - you absolutely have to enter!

But there's a catch! You Can't Do It Alone - You Will Need To Duet For Dollars!

The Prizes!

First Place Duet: $500 USD each!

Duet For Dollars Concept:

We have the most fantastic community on the web, so it's now time to reach out and find that dream duet partner.

We're looking for duet pairs that have vocal chemistry, sing beautifully and mesh harmoniously. Are you up for the challenge?

Round 1 - Auditions: (June 4-10) This round is open to any duet pair. You are responsible for finding your own duet partner. If you would like to post your expression of interest for a partnership, you can do so in the Duet For Dollars Partnership Call Thread. SingSnap will not monitor that thread and is not responsible for finding or assigning partnerships. Both parties must be in agreement and willing participants.

Round 2 - Top 100 (June 11-17) The Top 100 duets will advance into Round two. A new thread will be made and a special panel of invited Judges will be announced, along with the round details.

Round 3 - Top 20 (June 18-24) The Top 20 duets from round two will advance to the semi-finals.

Round 4 - Final Three (June 25-July 2) The top three duets from round three will advance into the finals where they will give it their all in an effort to win $500 USD each! The winning duet will be chosen by Trevor!

Judging Criteria!

We are sharing the judging criteria with you, so you are fully aware of the things the judges will be looking for when scoring your finished duet.

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?

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?

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.

Vocal Blend - 5 Points: How well do you and your partner sound together? Did the selected arrangement make the song the best it could be? Were there harmonies or anything else to make the song special or stand out?

Thanks Everyone & Good Luck!

3. You may sing any song in the SingSnap catalog available to you with the exception of licensed material and original songs.

So that means any song at all! It can be a non-traditional song turned into a duet if you'd like

Someone partner up with Chanda. I wish I had the talent to do this sooooo bad. There are so many talented people out there that just blow my mind when I hear them. I would hate to think one of them couldn't find a partner.

If both members have accounts, is using the duet feature required or can it be recorded on one member's account? Tim and I do it both ways, so I want to be sure.
