THE VOCAL EDGE SMULE PLAYLIST

  • Please note that Vocal Edge currently has an official playlist on the front page of Smule, right there with Killer Karaoke, Smule Picks etc.... In order for your track to be considered, it must be either an official Smule songbook song, or an alternative version of an official Smule songbook song (for example, Acoustic).

Official songbook tracks are shown on Smule by the green icon. These are the only tracks considered for the official playlist, (or alternative versions of these songs)

JUDGING CRITERIA

These are the criteria against which you will be judged. You will be given a point for covering the relevant question. Therefore by following the criteria given here, you can maximize your score and ensure you focus on the correct aspects of your song. RECORDING QUALITY: 2 Is there background noise? Were the volumes and FX appropriate and balanced between the track and all vocal layers? TECHNIQUE: 2 Was the contestant in tune throughout in each of their layers? Did the contestant use appropriate dynamics? - for example loud, quiet, strong, soft DELIVERY: 2 Did the contestant put appropriate emotion into the song? Did the contestant make the song their own with touches of originality? HARMONY: 2

WARNING: FAILURE TO PERFORM A NOTICEABLE 2 PART HARMONY IN YOUR SONG WILL RESULT IN A DQ)

Did the contestant go above and beyond the basic requirement, and use 3 part harmony? Did the harmonies build through the song to create ebb and flow throughout the song? GENERAL VOCALS: 2 Did the judge actually enjoy listening to this version?

SCORES AND RESULTS

In this round, you will be judged and critiqued by TWO judges. The judges will each make AT LEAST one positive and one constructive comment and these will NOT be intended personally but to help you improve so please be prepared to hear constructive criticism. The judging criteria is also CLEARLY shown so be sure to pick a song that will adhere to these criteria. Song choice is in YOUR hands, and so any complaints that your song couldn't fulfill the criteria will not be accepted. The 260 highest total scores will move on to the the next round at which point contestants will be split into 13 teams of 20 people each. HIDDEN IMMUNITY There is a secret song, the title of which has been recorded in Smule, with a timestamp. Anyone who sings that song will automatically pass to the next round regardless of their score. The song will not be revealed to ANYONE until results. Those who manage to sing the lucky song will have their true score placed on their running totals even though they will be automatically moving forwards.

FOR THIS ROUND, ONE MALE AND ONE FEMALE ARTIST WILL BE SECRETLY CHOSEN INSTEAD OF A SONG TITLE. ANYONE PERFORMING A SONG BY THE SECRET ARTIST WILL GET THE IMMUNITY TO NEXT ROUND.

RISE TO THE TOP The Top 8% of scores moving forward from Round 3 will gain immunity for the next round, Round 4, and will NOT be eligible to be eliminated in that round. 8% of 260 is 20 people. In the event of a tie for immunity, Brett will choose his favourites from those in the tiebreak position.
