Frequently asked questions




  • Q: Whats the deadline for auditions?
    A: We'll be gathering entries until August 1st!

    Q: How long should my entry be?
    A: Entries for Auditions should be a minimum of 0:30 up to 1:30. For stages please limit your entry length to 1:30-2:00 (all entries should be acapella only, meaning no instrumentals).

    Q: Can I put an instrumental on my recording?
    A: No. Refer to rule 3.

    Q: Is my song selection only limited to what is on osu!?
    A: Of course not! You can sing anything as long as it fits the stage's requirements.

    Q: So I can't use effects, what about Noise Reduction/Cancellation?
    A: We can allow that but make sure it does not clip your voice badly.

    Q: Can duets layer the vocals of both contestants together?
    A: Duets are not allowed to layer their vocals. Only a single layer is allowed for each contestant.

    Q: Can I submit another entry if I don't like my previous one?
