FORMAT

Welcome to the DollDuffer's Sponsorship Contest 2! I had such a great experience last time that I decided to hold another one! This time around I am changing things up a bit based on a hodge podge of ideas from contests I have seen recently on SingSnap that had some really great ideas.

This time I have brought in 4 coaches for round 1 through the finals. The coaches are here to critique, make suggestions and generally assist their teams in any way possible to win the coveted prize(s) at the end. I have great respect for each coach and I asked each one of them to be involved based on that respect. If you don't feel as if you can take constructive criticism and work to improve upon what you may think is already perfection, this contest MIGHT not be for you. All of these coaches are kind and warm hearted people but they will also be honest and may make you go outside your comfort zones at times... so please be prepared for that.

I have also brought in two guest judges for whom I have great respect as well for the final round. One of the judges is the winner of my last contest and the other judge has generously offered to sponsor a full year of gold membership to the winner. I am very thankful to have both of them be a part of this contest.

This contest will have 6 rounds all together: the audition round, round 1, round 2, semi-finals part 1, semi-finals part 2 and the finals. Each round will last 48 hours (2 days) with the exception of the finals which will last 84 hours (3 and 1/2 days). There will be 12 hours between each round.

TIMELINE & STRUCTURE

Auditions for this round will run from now until 11pm SS time 6/19 (Tuesday night). I will choose 48 contestants to advance into Round 1 and assign teams of 12 contestants to each coach. I will be the only one judging the auditions.

Round 1 will go from 6/20 11am SS time to 6/22 11am SS time (Wednesday to Friday). This is a non-elim round. Theme to be announced.

Round 2 will go from 6/22 11pm SS time to 6/24 11pm SS time (Friday to Sunday). Theme to be announced. Each coach will choose 6 contestants from their teams to advance into the semi-finals based on cumulative scoring of your Round 1 and Round 2 submissions. Coaches will only be judging their own team members so decisions are based solely on the coach assigned to those team members and they will use whatever scoring system they feel appropriate based on the contest criteria.

Semi-Finals Part 1 will go from 6/25 11am SS time to 6/27 11am SS time Monday to Wednesday). Each contestant will submit a song to be judged and critiqued by their coach. Contestants will receive their critique via PM before the start of part 2 of the semi-finals.

Semi-Finals Part 2 will go from 6/27 11pm SS time to 6/29 11pm SS time (Wednesday to Friday). Based on the critiques from part 1, contestants will redo the same songs they submitted and will be judged based on how well they improved from part 1 to part 2. Coaches will choose 3 contestants from their teams to advance to the final round. Coaches will only be judging their own team members so decisions are based solely on the coach assigned to those team members and they will use whatever scoring system they feel appropriate based on the contest criteria.

Finals will go from 6/30 11am SS time to 7/2 11pm SS time (Saturday to Tuesday). Contestants will choose will be singing two songs, one of their choice and one of their coaches choosing. Contestants will work with coaches on both songs until they feel it is ready for submission to the finals forum. The final round will be judged by all coaches (however, they will not be judging their own team members), myself and the 2 guest judges using one agreed upon scoring system which will be based upon the contest criteria. The scoring system will be outlined once we reach the finals.

CONTEST RULES

~ Pre-Records allowed for auditions, round 1, round 2 and the semi-finals part 1.
~ Fresh records only for the semi-finals part 2 and the finals (submissions must have been recorded AFTER the time those rounds are posted).
~ Harmonies allowed.
~ Duplicates allowed.
~ Gender benders allowed.
~ No late entries will be accepted.
~ I know everyone has a life outside of SingSnap (well, most of us anyway ;o)) so you won't be required to listen to each other... but it's always nice to atleast support your fellow contestants and eventually your team mates.
~ NO DRAMA. Be respectful and kind toward one another. If there is an issue, please PM me and I will do my best to resolve it. If you see any drama on the thread, please don't respond to it and let myself or one of the coaches or judges deal with it privately.
~ One final note- if you are not advanced to another round, please remember that while we all do our best to remain impartial and as fair as possible, tastes are subjective and you may not agree with our decsions. However, our decisions WILL BE final so no amount of PM's telling us how wrong we were is going to change our minds even if by some chance we did just make the BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER! Now go have fun! :o)

I Recorded This Song, Only A Month After Finding Singsnap, So I Hadn't Really Learned The Tricks And The Trades Of A Good Audio Mix. Coming Back And Listening To It Now, I Am Happy That This Recording Has The Sound It Has, It Almost Sounds Like It's An "Oldies" LP.... And This Just Happens To Be One Of My FAVORITE "Oldies" Song. Thanks, Carrie
