Scoring will be in three parts, each accounting for 1/3 of the total score:

  1. Judges will score each act on a 1-10 scale, with 10 being the most favorable, on each of the following criteria: Choice of Song, Artistry/Originality, Key and Pitch, Overall Performance. The cumulative scores of the three judges will then be ranked 1-15 to determine the contestant’s score, 1 going to the highest score, 15 to the lowest
  2. Fan balloting – Each audience member will get a ballot to cast a vote for their favorite contestant. The contestant with the most votes will earn 1 point, and the contestant with the fewest votes will earn 15 points.
  3. Text voting – Each contestant will be assigned a keyword. Fans will then be able to text that keyword to the designated number within a 5-minute period to vote for their favorite contestant. The contestant with the most votes will earn 1 point, and the contestant with the fewest votes will earn 15 points.

Following all performances for that night, all three scoring categories will be combined to create the total score. The act with the lowest cumulative score will be named the grand prize winner. If there is a tie, judges will decide the ultimate winner. If the winning act is deemed ineligible for any reason, an alternate winner will be selected by referring to the act with the next highest score. Winner is responsible for any taxes and fees.
