Competition rules:

  • The singing competition is available to contestants of all ages. 
  • The competition is divided into two (2) rounds: preliminaries and finals.

 

Preliminaries

  • Contestants entering the singing competition will participate in a preliminary competition on the Wednesday evening of CMTC in a closed judging room. During preliminaries, contestants will sing acapella for a maximum of one (1) minute and will be cut off at the judges’ discretion. 
  • No musical accompaniment and no musical instruments will be permitted during the preliminaries. 
  • Judging will be based on vocal quality (pitch, tone, breath control), musical skill (intonation, timing, rhythm, projection, transitions), interpretation, style, and stage presence.
  • A list of finalists will be posted at the CMTC information booth on Thursday morning.

 

Finals

  • Singing finalists will perform live in front of a panel of judges and an audience on the Friday afternoon of CMTC. At the singing finals, contestants will be provided with a microphone. Contestants are permitted to sing acapella. However, karaoke-style music (i.e., songs from which the original vocals have been electronically eliminated) is preferred.
  • Singers must abide by the following rules:
  • Singers must submit their music, in MP3 format, using the Singing Music Submission Form that can be found on the Contestant Hub on or before April 1, 2021.
  • Performances must be single acts only.
  • Performances have a maximum time limit of two (2) minutes.
  • Performances that exceed this time limit will be cut off at the judges’ discretion.
  • The chosen song should not feature prominent background vocals.
  • No musical instruments will be permitted during the performance.
  • Songs and/or music containing profanity or explicit adult material will result in immediate disqualification.
  • No roller skates, roller blades, use of any sharp instruments, or any equipment that CMTC or its host venue may deem dangerous.
  • Judging will be based on vocal quality (pitch, tone, breath control), musical skill (intonation, timing, rhythm, projection, transitions), interpretation, style, and stage presence.

 

Wardrobe Requirements:

  • Wardrobe/Costume must be in good taste.

 

Tips from the Judges:

Select a song that is suitable for your voice and range. For preliminaries, take advantage of your time in front of us and sing the part of the song that best displays your vocal talent.
