HOW IT WORKS
The competition consists of 30 cities.
Each city has 3 rounds: 2 preliminary rounds and 1 championship round.
The judge’s scores will determine the top 5 artists (or any artist with over 150 out of 180 possible points) from each preliminary round who will move on to the championship round. There will be a fan vote to determine an additional 5 artists to make it to championship round in each city.
In the championship round, the judge’s scores will determine the top 5 artists. And the crowd will decide the winner. (ie. Showtime at the Apollo)
The top 3 artists in each city will move on to 1 of 5 regional championships. The judge’s scores will determine the top 5 artists. And the crowd will decide the winner.
The top 5 artists from each region will move on to the national championship.
Note: Any Artist who receives a perfect score (180 points) at any event will become an automatic finalist for the national championship.
Viewer’s Choice: The Top Non-Finalists through online poll will become an automatic finalist on the city, regional, and national championship.
Each City Champion will receive $100 cash prize and a 1st Place Certificate.
Each Regional Champion will receive $200-$500 cash prize and a 1st Place Certificate. (Cash Prize is Based on Number of Participants)
