Hey everyone! Welcome to Round 3 of GTBYG5! Debi (knotty), Vickie and I have loved listening to each and every one of you, but unfortunately, it's that time again! Hopefully the ones cut will stick around though, and keep listening and chillin’ with us!! It was great having you! And please don't let being cut discourage you from entering other contests!!

Here are the basic rules:

1. No drama, especially on the thread. If there is a problem, pm me, and we'll deal with it privately.

2. Pre-records will be allowed as specified in each round. There will be no pre-records accepted in the semi-finals and finals.

3. Harmony, key changing and effects are all okay to use, but they will not affect your song scores. But don't overdo the microphone effects, because that just may make it hard for the judges to hear you properly!

4. Please try to listen to others as much as you can. You don't need to listen to every single person, but it would be nice to support your fellow contestants!

5. Rounds with larger numbers of people will last 4-5 days, unless of course, all contestants have submitted their songs before the deadline is up. The semi-final and final rounds will be lasting 2 days! That should give you all plenty of time to submit your songs! I like to stay as on schedule as possible but if something comes up, please let me know, and I’ll see if something can be worked out.

6. PLEASE tag and check in on the contest threads every so often!! It's just too time consuming to individually email everyone, and I don't always have the time. I sometimes send reminders, but it isn't always possible. So, if you're really serious about the contest, FLAG IT!!!

In the past, I’ve had people who had issues with having a short list of artists or songs to choose from! I will tell you right now that will most likely happen at least once in the contest, so if you have issues with that, or find it hard to make a song choice, then this isn't the contest for you! Also, if you can't take being cut from contests, you may not want to be here. My contests are for fun, not for childish drama!

Everyone will be marked out of 20 points.
- 5 for Quality of Voice (tone, pitch, wording)
- 5 for Originality/Making the song your own
- 5 for Passion/Feeling/"Sounding natural"
- 5 for Overall Performance

The eliminations will go as follows:
Audition Round: HOPEFULLY 100 contestants (completed)
Round 1: start off with 100, 25 will be cut (completed)
Round 2: Start with 75, 25 will be cut (done)
Round 3: Start with 50, 25 will be cut (in progress)
Round 4: Start with 25, 10 will be cut
Round 5: Start with 15, 5 will be cut
Semi-Finals: Start with 10, 5 will be cut
Finals: Remaining 5 will compete for the title of GTBYG 5 Winner!

***THEME FOR ROUND 3***
We decided to do a Judge's Favorites theme.. so we each chose 5 of our favorite artists, and we want you to choose ONE and sing a song by that artist! That's all you gotta do! Have fun, and give it the best you got!

Dido
Elton John
Eva Cassidy
Johnny Mathis
Luther Vandross
Mariah Carey
Nat King Cole

Well, you shouldn't really use a song you used before...that would probably mean disqualification!

Here is my entry from Anne Murray. This nearly killed me and I think I cried through the whole recording. Today I ended a year long relationship with someone whom I love more than anyone other than my children. So if ther are a few cracks in there, there is a completely valid reason why.
