Congrats to our Final Five! But as if it wasn’t hard enough… things are about to get more interesting!

Songs must be submitted by Wednesday, March 2nd at 5pm or be defaulted to your Round 2 (not round 3) song.

Singers will sing a song of their choice (unless you don’t get it submitted as noted above) and one assigned to them by the host (I will text you individually by 7pm Monday night, you will be able to reject ONLY THE FIRST SONG I SUPPLY or be forced into my backup option for you). My goal is not to trip you up, I’ll find a song for your voice you may not have sung before. The hosts choice will only be rated on vocal skills as noted below.

You will be able to practice with the host at the Weds, Thurs or Friday shows as needed. This allows the host to fine-tune your sound.

I highly suggest you reserve tables for Saturday if your planning for visitors. I will not be allowing rotation of regular karaoke during the finals to prevent those who didn’t join the competition to take away from the shine of our finals. That’s why we have an earlier start time. Singers will go in reverse order of finish as we did last week for both of our rounds.

Scoring Template for this week!

1st song (Your Choice)
Sing without words! Did you need the screen? most of the time (lowest score) to none of the time (highest score) 0-5 points
