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. If you are unclear about any of these criteria - Your coach will be happy to help you. After all, they aren't here just to look pretty! RECORDING QUALITY: 1 Is there background noise and were the volumes and FX appropriate and balanced between the track and all vocal layers? TECHNIQUE/DELIVERY: 4 Was the contestant in tune throughout in each of their layers? Did the contestant use appropriate dynamics? - for example loud, quiet, strong, soft Did the contestant display confidence? Did the contestant use harmony in their song? MASHUP: 2 Did the mashup have a flowing story or theme as opposed to simply throwing together random songs? Were the songs used from a variety of Disney movies? GENERAL VOCALS: 3 Did the judge actually enjoy listening to this version?

SCORES AND RESULTS

In this round, you will be judged and critiqued by FOUR 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 5 highest total scores will move on to the SEMI-FINAL. HIDDEN IMMUNITY There is no more secret song immunity. RISE TO THE TOP There is no further immunity gained from running totals - remember - the people at the top have used their versatility to stay at the top and remain safe to this point, but now, they are vulnerable and can be eliminated at any time. SIN BIN With results of this round, a single sin-binner will be chosen to return to the main competition, to their original coach, and the sin-bin will be closed for business.
