2017 Quarter Finalists - PLEASE READ ALL INFORMATION 


Congratulations to all the contestants who are moving on to the next round! We can already see that we will have a difficult time in judging as the talent pool is very close. This is one of our best groups from all 13 seasons. You should all be very proud. If you don’t reach the semi-final, we hope you don’t give up. Keep singing as much as possible – like everything else, you only improve by practicing & giving your best effort. We hope to see you next year!

 

Contestants are able to change their quarter final locations, if the need arises, due to any personal or school conflicts. You MUST contact Ed Lisenbey, ASAP, if you need to switch location.

 

After reading your name, you can start texting Ed Lisenbey with your song choice for the Quarter Final round only. Remember, no two contestants will be allowed to sing the same song at their Quarter Final. The first one to text their song to Ed, gets that song. No one else will be allowed to sing it. Ed’s number is: 509-322-0003.

 

If you happen to choose a 50s & 60s song to sing at the Quarter Final, you ARE ALLOWED to sing it at the Semi-Final.

The top 25 contestants from the two qualifiers will move on to the Semi-Final held in Okanogan.

PLEASE READ - IMPORTANT INFO FOR QUARTER FINALS - BOTH LOCATIONS


1. Be at your Quarter Final venue thirty minutes before showtime so your CD can be checked.  Any other information about the show or any questions will be answered.  At the final we will be doing sound checks & a dance number.


2. Please remember to have a Karaoke CD when arriving to each competition round! No musical instruments, cell phones, I-Pods or singing acapella is allowed. If you download Karaoke music, it has to be on a CD-R - no other CD will work in our system. Label it with your name & track #, please;

also label the dead time (how many seconds before music starts - try to limit the dead time so you don't have to stand there so long.)

VERY IMPORTANT...PLEASE TEST YOUR CD TO MAKE SURE IT RECORDED CORRECTLY. If it doesn't work you won't move on.


3. Choose any song of any genre  except Rap or Hip Hop for the Quarter Final.  (It doesn't have to be from our approved list, but you may surely use it if you're having trouble selecting a song.) Remember to text Ed (509)322-0003 with your song choice ASAP. You risk the chance of NOT getting your song if you wait.


4. Dress nicely for your performance - Country style or nice outfits that fits your song.


5. Be thinking about possible song choices for the Semi & Final rounds. These songs must come from our approved song list. Semi's is 50s & 60s Rock-n-Roll & Doo Wop, the Championship Final is Classic Country or Rock-n-Roll & Doo Wop.


6. WE REQUIRE ALL CONTESTANTS TO SIT WITH THEIR FELLOW CONTESTANTS DURING THE WHOLE EVENING'S PERFORMANCES. This allows you to support each other & to bond throughout the competition. Once your performance is over, you need to return to your designated seating area. If you have any questions, speak with Ed or Leslie when you arrive.


7. Please go to the check-in table when you arrive to drop off your CD & to get any further instructions.


8. Like always...HAVE FUN!! GOOD LUCK :)


Please text Ed that you have seen your name.
