Dartmouth Idol Judging
Dartmouth Idol Judging

Participants will be evaluated on the following parameters:
  • vocal ability (rhythm/pitch/tone/timbre)
  • musicality (interpretation/phrasing/memorization/dynamics)
  • performance (movement/confidence/command/uniqueness)
The actual judges and number will vary depending upon stage of the competition.
Decisions as to who will advance will be made upon completion of each round. Round 1 (auditions) will be decided by the panel of judges. Round 2 (semi-finals) will be decided by a combination of judges’ scores (50%) and audience votes (50%). The finals will be decided entirely by the voting audience. Each audience member may vote only once.
The top three contestants in the competition will be awarded:
  • 1st place: $500 prize plus the opportunity to record a 2-song demo
  • 2nd place: $250 prize money
  • 3rd place: $100 prize money
All prize winners will be announced following the finals. Prizes are non-transferable and non-refundable.
Judges’ decisions are final.
