We will be accepting submissions from two age groups. Participants must be in Grades 4 - 8 or Grades 9 - 12. Anyone may submit their audition tape, free of charge. Those submitting do NOT have to be from the New York/New Jersey area. Only 20 contestants will be selected from each age grouping for participation in the four week competition, which will take place each Friday on our Facebook page. The grades 4 - 8 competition will air at 7pm and the grades 9 - 12 competition will broadcast at 9pm. If selected for participation in the four week competition, you will be required to submit a one time $20 Entry Fee to continue.
HOW IT WILL WORK
We will broadcast the competition (pre-recorded) each week on our Facebook page on Fridays at 7pm for Grades 4 -8 and 9pm for Grades 9 - 12.
Participants who move on in the competition will submit a new song each week based on the announced weekly theme (submitted the following Tuesday of each week of competition).
A panel of special guest judges will offer commentary on each video and will also have a single “golden ticket” to offer one singer entry into the “Final Five”.
Viewers can tune in weekly to watch and vote for their favorite singers in a pay-per-vote format that will be available on this page of our website at the start of each week's competition broadcast. Viewers MUST vote before the END of each broadcast.
The bottom five singers will leave the competition each week and those singers will be announced in a follow-up Facebook Live video following each broadcast.
The last week, the “Final Five” will prepare two songs and the winner will be announced the following week in a Facebook Live broadcast.
All participants receive a digital certificate of participation. Winner receives a complimentary one-year Rhino Youth Club Membership. Runner up receives a family pack of tickets to a future Rhino Theatre Group show.
INITIAL ENTRY VIDEO REEL
Please submit a video based on the following theme:
My Personal Anthem
Select a song that shows your vocal range and versatility and that you feel could be used as your own personal anthem; a song that you feels helps showcase your personality and who you are as a person.
All videos should be submitted in landscape alignment and in HD format (if available on your recording event). If HD is not available on your recording device, please ensure that the video is clear and not blurry. Songs with explicit or inappropriate lyrics are not permitted.
If selected for inclusion in the competition, contestants will be asked to submit a different video each week of the competition based on a weekly theme, announced during the Friday evening broadcasts of the competition. Therefore, contestants must be available for the four weeks of the competition.
