TAKE NOTE: We prefer that you choose songs for the quarter final from our lists of songs - it is not mandatory though for this round only.  Some songs can be sung by male or female - you would just switch some words around to make it appropriate for the gender the song is sung about. Example - her to him, girl to boy, Sue to Drew.  PERFORM YOUR SONG IN THE STYLE OF THE ORIGINAL ARTIST, NOT YOUR REARRANGED VERSION. Don't change it up too much to make it your own. We want your voice, of course.  



1. Be at your Quarter Final venue one (1) hour before show time 

 to check in & to give us your CD.  Plan to stay for the whole evening - see rule #6. Any information about the show or any questions will be answered.  

2. Please remember to have a Karaoke CD when arriving to the quarter final.If you download Karaoke music, it has to be on a CD-R - no other CD will work in our system. Label the CD with your name & track # (even if there's only ONE song, please; also label the dead time (how many seconds before music starts) CUT  THE DEADTIME to 0-3 SECONDS - NO MORE.  EX: Your Name; Track #1, :03.

  • VERY IMPORTANT...PLEASE TEST YOUR CD TO MAKE SURE IT RECORDED CORRECTLY - play it on something other than what you recorded it on to verify that it's working properly.

3. For the quarter final, choose a song of any genre  EXCEPT Rap, Hip Hop, Raggae or Opera.  (It doesn't have to be from our approved list, but we would prefer that you do.) **On the Monday following the qtr. finalist's announcement (on this website), you may start texting your song choice for the quarter final at 8AM to Ed (509)322-0003. Please do not text your song choice before 8 AM; if you do, it won’t count. The first one to text a song choice gets that song. Ed should receive your song title NO LATER THAN FRIDAY, FEB. 14. If two contestants choose the same song, Ed will go by the exact time your text was delivered to him. You risk the chance of NOT getting your song if you wait too long!

4. Dress nicely for your performance - A nice (tasteful) outfit that fits the style of your song. 

5. Be thinking about possible song choices for the Semi & Final rounds. These songs must come from our approved song list - look under the "More" tab. Semi's is 50s & 60s Rock, Pop & Doo Wop. At the Championship Final you'll have to sing two songs: one from our classic country list &  one from our Rock, Pop & Doo Wop list. (You are not allowed to sing the same song for the final that you sang at the semi-final, so choose your songs wisely.) 

**NOTE**  If you need help with your song selections, don't hesitate to call Ed Lisenbey for suggestions. He is a great source!

6. WE REQUIRE ALL CONTESTANTS TO SIT TOGETHER 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. The ones that sing at the end of the program watched you - you need to stay and watch them.  If you have any questions, speak with Ed or Leslie when you arrive. **Not being respectful or not listening to directions by ANY competition volunteer - may cause you to risk not  moving on in the competition.

7. Like always...HAVE FUN!! GOOD LUCK!!

ADMISSION  AT THE DOOR - $10 OR $35 FOR 4+ (immediate household)

SUGGESTION: You should choose a song that is well within your vocal range. If you have a softer, gentler voice DO NOT SING a powerful song by a powerhouse singer like Beyonce', Whitney Houston, Celine Dion or Carrie Underwood - be sure you can hit the highs & lows cleary without straining or bottoming out. The judging becomes more strict as you move on through the competition! Bring your "A" game to each round!! As you're singing, you are presenting yourself to the audience - show them that you enjoy being on stage & that you're happy to be performing for them! And always say "Thank you."
