CA LIVE - KARAOKE RULES

 

General Rules

  • If you are not wearing a costume to perform please wear your WAKA t-shirt!

  • Not all members of a team are required to sing.

  • Party!

Season Structure

  • Teams will consist of 6 to 8 performers with at least 3 of both sexes.

  • Each team will need a captain and co-captain who will be in charge of submitting their song list each week.

  • The regular season lasts for 6 weeks and will be followed by 1 week for playoffs.

  • The season schedule is never released.  Each team will compete against one other team in their assigned time slot each week.

  • A new theme for karaoke will be chosen every week.  80s, 90s, One Hit Wonders, Holiday, Boyband/girlband, Disney, etc...

  • Each team gets 3 songs each night in which to compete against their opponent.  The rounds shall be ladies solo, men's solo, and group.  Group songs can have 2-8 performers.  During solo rounds the singer will be allowed to use his/her teammates for props or dancers but they are not allowed to sing.

  • After noon on the Sunday before competition, each captain shall submit a list of their chosen songs to the WAKA representative.  If two teams choose to sing the same song on the same night, whomever submitted the song first will sing that particular song.

  • Once a song has been sung it may not be sung again.  A running list of already played songs will be available on the league site.

  • Season rankings are determined by number of wins.  In case of a tie use total points scored and then winner of the head-to-head matchup.

Judging

  • After every performance, a panel of judges will score the singers on two 10 point scales on how well they:
    ○   “Sing It” (singing ability, song difficulty, encorporating multiple teammates in groups songs)
    ○   “Bring It” (showmanship) – dancing, costumes, audience interaction, etc.

Playoffs

  • Teams will be seeded for a single elimination tournament.
