The Process:

Saturday, April 15:

·         Contestants will perform a portion of a song that is 60 seconds or less. It can be any genre, but must have family friendly lyrics. This audition is a cappella – no accompaniment of any kind.

·         Anyone may watch the auditions for a $5 entry fee.

·         At the end of auditions on Saturday, April 15, the judges will determine and announce the top 20 performers.

Saturday, April 29:

§  Everyone who auditioned on Saturday, April 15 is invited to sing in a group song at this performance. Info will be distributed at auditions. Anyone who sings in the group song can watch the finals for free, but needs a ticket to vote for the winners.

§  The Top 20 contestants will perform for a live audience. The song performed on April 29 MAY be the same song performed for auditions, but instead of being a 1-minute excerpt, would be the FULL song with accompaniment.

§  General Admission Tickets for Finals cost $8 each.

§  Audience members will vote for their favorite performers in each age category.

§  There will be a winner for each age category. After those winners are announced, there will be a second vote to determine who will be named this year’s Hamilton Idol!

 

Prizes:
