Welcome to American Idol, the LJ version. LJ Idol!
I have looked all over LJ for a community that rates voices...I never found one, so I thought to myself...Why not make my own?
Here it is. This is one of those game journals. The game will run much like the American Idol on FOX, people will submit their wav or mp3 file for judging. IN the begining, they will have to pass approval from the judges, as the game progresses, all lj users will be able to vote on their favorite singer.
There will be two seperate auditions going on at once, a pop audition, and a classical audition (for opera singers). Make sure you state which one you are auditioning for. I was also considering an instrumental audition, but I cant rate instruments. If anyone wants to do this, please tell me, we need 3 judges, and we can get it started.
I am currently looking for two more judges. You must have some musical background and a good ear.
This is LJ idol, not American idol, people from anywhere in the world are free too audition Feel free to join if you 1) want to be one of the 3 judges 2) want to be the first lj idol 3) want to be an audience member
~~~~~~Rules~~~~~Contestants~~~~~ 1. Your song file must be accapella and may not excede one minute in lenght. 2. You must upload your song file to your own server. You may delete it while judging is over. 3. If I find out that you are faking, you will be banned. 4. Overall, have fun. I know that computer song files are not always of the best quality, I will keep that in mind when judging 5. For each audition, please write as the topic, your audition catagory (pop, classical, or instrumental)
~~~~~Judges~~~~~~~~~~ 1. You will be rating the person in vocal quality, overall tone, strength, and pitch. 2. Always provide constructive criticism. 3. Once the judging cycle is over, LJ users take over, and you are powerless as to who stays and who goes. 4. For every performance, each judge must give a yes or no, and feedback (in the final rounds, it will be only feedback)
~~~~~~~~~Audience members~~~~~~~ 1. Do not vote until I say that we will start the LJ voting.

I have background in choral music, solo music, musical theater, and music theory. Overall I will probably allow a little pitch problem, what I find most important is your overall tone.

****instrumental***** Judge 1- dawnsdream Okay, for starters, my name's Jessica. I'm 14 at the moment, but will be 15 within a couple of weeks, if that makes any difference. I've always loved music. I learned the 'basics,' I guess you could say, as soon as I could. I started playing the flute in fourth grade, and have taken private lessons for a year now. In sixth grade, I started playing the steel drum. In seventh grade, my band director taught me clarinet, and in eighth grade he taught me saxophone. I've also been teaching myself piccolo and piano for some time now. Judge 2- krissieleeMy name's Kristen, call me Krissie. I'm 18 years of age, and I've been playing instruments since I was 8. Piano, violin, flute (my main one now), piccolo, viola, cello, clarinet, saxphone, bells, percussion...the list goes on and on...
I go to a performing arts academy in Sacramento, California, and I got into the school with my flute. I can pick up songs after hearing them a few times, I'm first flute and winds concert mistriss in Orchestra, and I'm not sure what other qualifications you want of me...um, I can sight-read any instrument's key on the treble clef, and I can transpose from viola and bass, if the bass is C key. I also give music lessons to grade school kids, and my senoir project involved the Mozart Effect and learning disabled children.

Judge 2- liltrixie My name's Molly, and I'm a Vocal Performance major at New York University, emphasis Music Theatre. I'm tough on myself, and I'll admit I'll probably be tough on you. I take voice very seriously. I've studied both classical and music theatre for 8 years, with teachers graduating from CCM and who have performed at the MET. I was 4 years Tennessee All State Chorus, 1 year National Youth Chorus, and have numerous professional and non-professional credits. I performed with Diana Degarmo when when was 9 and I was 11 for Opryland Entertainment in Nashville, Tennessee.
