SHOW FORMAT

Round 1 (12 contestants)

  • Your open-themed 32 bar mix that you submitted for the submission round will be played during Round 1.
  • At the end of Round 1, the judges will select two “Judges Pick” (pick by guest judges and Organizers) to automatically proceed into semi-finals.
  • All contestants will then DM apleb4life with their votes. Please choose 4 contestants that had your favorite mixes and list them in order of preference (you cannot vote for yourself). The top 3 choices of your 4 picks (after removing the 2 Judge Picks), will each receive 3, 2 and 1 points respectively.

Votes

  • Audience can vote too! Audience will need a Google account to vote on Google Forms (link will be provided during the voting period). Audience votes will account for 20% of a contestant’s votes. E.g. if Contestant A receives 10 votes from the audience, 20% of 10 votes will be 2 points.
  • Contestants’ votes will now account for 80% of the total points recieved. 1st choice = 3 points, 2nd choice = 2 points, 3rd choice = 1 point. If Contestant A receives 10 points from votes in total (three 1st choices and one 3rd choice), 80% of 10 points will be 8 points. The total sum for Contestant A is 10 points.

Round 2 – Semi-finals (6 contestants)

  • At the end of the round, the judges will select one “Judges Pick” (pick by guest judges and Organizers) to automatically proceed into the finals.

Please choose 2 contestants from the 6 semi-finalists that had your favorite mixes and list them in order of preference (you cannot vote for yourself). The first top choice of your 2 picks (after removing the 1 Judge Pick) will be chosen as your vote (3 points).
