You can present the three songs in any order you choose....and this will be important.
Every song will be voted on and given points by the Listeners of TMOA. Each vote will give a rating of a '3, 2, or 1', with 3 being the best, 1 the worst.
Once I have a list of all competitors I will provide a Ballot in this thread for that week's Songs
Votes for songs can be PM'ed or Emailed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org . Singers may vote for the other contestants songs, but not their own.
We will premier the songs on the Ken and Roger Show... Depending on how many contestants we get will depend on how many we can get on with one show... There the songs will be commented on by a panel of unsympathetic critics.
But the winner will be determined by the Votes of the Listeners.
You are encouraged to provide a link to your song for listening, or a link for downloading in this, the Official TMOA Idol 3 Thread...
All the Votes will be held in a Mayonnaise Jar.... yes, that Film of the Fortnight Mayo Jar.... Until all songs have been previewed and Played on Air.
If you think you can be the TMOA Idol.... You indicate your interest by Posting in This Thread.... You must be entered by Midnight GMT January 28st.
Prizes.... You betcha... Right now the Prize Closet has a a gift card worth at least $100 US.... and maybe even more! Like Guest Starring in Animatechnica's The Nobbit Part 3, and 100 of something called Wolf Bucks for IClone stuff Purchases!!!!
Sign up... all this could be your's for just a Song.
Jan 28th is the deadline for your first song... Feb 11th is the deadline for the second song.. and Feb 25th the deadline for the final song....
Here is a good way to put your song where everyone can listen to it. I used Windows Movie Maker, made a quick movie with 'Having My Baby' as the audio, put in a couple of titles, exported and uploaded to TMUnderground, then put the movie/song in to the Idol Channel... check it out!
