which will be held on Sunday, November 8, at the Hilton Greenville.
Tickets for parents and friends to watch auditions are only $5
each (cash only) and may be purchased at the door entrance.
Registration fee to audition is $25, cash only. Each contestant
will be scored on audience reaction, so invite your friends and family
to come out and support you!
Please bring Karaoke/instrumental track to audition on October 11
at Greenville Hilton on Orchard Park Rd. If using an accompanist, they
must be signed in 24 hours prior to auditions by calling Coach Robert at
864.325.8774. Bring any props and no more than 4 background dancers if
you plan on using those in the competition for the Wow Factor.
Judging criteria: scores are based on performance and showmanship
and graded on a scale from 1-10 based on Vocal Mastery and
Entertainment/Production Value, with a possible WOW factor bonus of up
to 3 points (WOW = would I buy a ticket to your show or purchase your
music?) You may include up to 4 background dancers or props, but these
must also be at your audition.
At the Nov. 8 competition: After the adult division segment,
division finalists will be announced and will receive awards. The
