1. There are only 30 contestants allowed in each preliminary, the first 30 to sign up for pre-registration will have priority. 

2. The night of the preliminary, you must be at the venue by 6:00pm for song selection and check in, or you could lose your spot.

3. All contestants must be 18 years and older. Proof of age may be required.

4. The song you choose can be from any genre you wish.  PROFANITY will NOT be tolerated and will result in an immediate disqualification.  If the song you want to include has cuss words in it, please use another word in its place.

5. Singers may use our music tracks if needed.  If you’d like to bring your own music, you may do so on the night of your competition date on a CD.  Also, this year, we are allowing contestants to use ACOUSTIC GUITARS.  Your guitar must be tuned and ready to go when you hit the stage, no exceptions.  AND only the contestant can play the guitar.

6. Professional judges will choose 10 contestants from each preliminary round. These 10 contestants will move on to the semi-finals; to participate, you must be able to attend both the semi-finals and finals.
