2022 Big Radio Voice Karaoke Contest
1. Eligibility: Any person residing in the Big Radio listening area is eligible to participate provided: A) They are 21 years of age or older. B) They have not won the grand prize in any WJV-IDOL/Big Radio Voice event within the past 24 months. C) They do not derive their primary source of income from musical performance.
2. To participate: Attend scheduled Big Radio Voice appearances as heard on the stations of Big Radio, from 9/29/2022-10/27/2022. View the list of venues at wjvl.com, 1059thehog.com, mostly90s.com, or ironcountry.fm.
3. Qualifying Events: At each venue except for the Bazinga finale event on 10/27/2022, persons wishing to compete should request an entry ticket from the Big Radio official on duty. Contestants will be selected at random from all entries accumulated during the live appearance times and invited to perform one song from the available library of Karaoke selections at the venue. Contestants may not provide their own music but must choose from available selections at each venue. Solo performers only, no duo/group performances. The maximum number of contestants at any audition venue will be (20) twenty. Contestants must be present when their entry is called to be eligible to perform.
4. All contestants at each venue will be evaluated by a 3-judge panel (selection of the judges at each event is at the discretion of Big Radio and may or may not be unique to each event) using consistent criteria at each event. The judging results and scores will not be revealed to any participant or spectator and will be used solely to determine each event’s three qualifiers who will be invited to the finale event on 10/27/22 at Bazinga Classic Pub & Grille in Janesville.
5. At each event (except for 10/27/22), the top three scoring contestants based on cumulative judge scoring, will each be declared qualifiers for the finale event and will each win $100 in cash. Contestants are able to qualify only once during the contest and may only win one cash prize leading up to the finale event. Cash prizes will be awarded in a manner and form determined by Big Radio.
6. By registering, you give Big Radio and the participating venues the unlimited permission and authorization to use your name, likeness, image, photo, performance video and voice recording, entry materials, and any other contest-related materials in promotional and advertising displays, print ads, announcements, commercials, web site publication and other digital platforms without any further compensation at any point in the future.
7. At each event, the three-judge panel will score each contestant on a weighted scale of criteria including vocal ability, stage presence, audience reaction, and overall quality. Judging sheets used throughout the contest are consistent in their scoring methods. No judging sheets of any kind will be made available to any performer either before or after the contest.
8. The Big Radio Voice Finale event will be a judged event with pre-determined judges from a variety of backgrounds. The judges will select one winner at the finale event based on the same criteria applied in the preceding rounds of the contest.
9. Decisions by contest judges at each event including the finale are final. In the event of a tie in the vote scoring, the winner will be determined by the decision of a majority of the judges, with the decisions of the judges being final.
10. Three “qualifiers at large” will be selected at random from all entries received during a special registration period during the finale appearance at Bazinga Classic Pub & Grille on 10/27/22. The “qualifiers at large” will be announced throughout the finale and invited to perform ‘on the spot’ during the finals performances with equal consideration by the judges for the grand prize.
11. The winner at the Big Radio Voice Finale will receive a $1000 cash prize (to be awarded in the form of a check upon verification of eligibility).
