• Performances will be limited to five minutes. Choose your song wisely. If it is longer than five, be prepared to give us a big finish at the five-minute mark. The KJ or host will stop the song at the 5-minute mark or at their discretion. 

• Avoid songs with big instrumental breaks. We’re not there to hear studio musicians; we’re there to hear you. 

• We will be using the Karafun App for all singers.  Please go to karafun.com to view the available songs and choose your song from the songs available on the app.   Online karaoke | KaraFun

• We don't mind if someone else is doing your song. But if we see a duplicate, we will give you the option to change it before you sing. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO CHANGE! This is why pre-registration is encouraged. Once you have registered your name and song will be posted. 

• Each contestant shall use only the equipment provided by the DJ running the show. No outside equipment by the contestant or anyone other than the DJ shall be used.

i.

ii. Any person may enter the contest that belongs to an Organized Labor Union connected with the entertainment industry, as long as that person is not disqualified by rule number (i).

Musical instruments may be used as props, but are not allowed as an accompaniment to the contestants' performance. Contestants will be judged on their singing ability, not on how well they play an instrument. Such musical instruments must be hand carried. Props that utilize the aid of others to bring them on stage, or are difficult to handle are NOT permitted. An example of this type of prop is a piano, harp, etc... Any prop used by a contestant must be carried on stage or into the stage area by the contestant and must be completed in one trip onto or into the stage area

It is not reasonable to expect contestants; their families or associates from having contact with a judge directly after all contestants have performed. Breaks for judges during a contest shall be considered the same as time during a contestant performance and judges are off limits for conversation or any other contact.

If there is a tie for the next in line, the winner shall be decided by a toss of a coin
