Lip Sync Battle

Once a viral sensation and soon to be a television show on Spike, Lip Sync Battles are taking over the nation! This isn’t your momma’s karaoke contest. Here’s the thing: it’s so much better than karaoke. You don’t need to be talented. With Lip Sync Battles, you need to know the song and have the showmanship to back it up! Contestants will compete against each other in front of a panel of judges that will determine which performer brought the audience to their knees!

 

The competition will be judged in these categories:

  • Lip Sync Abilities: How well the performer(s) lip-sync the lyrics of the song.
  • Creativity: How original and creative the performance is. Instead of just standing on stage and lip-syncing a song, props, costumes and/or other ideas should be used and often impresses the judges and generates crowd response. Be creative!
  • Stage Presence & Choreography: Again, don’t just stand there! Engage the audience, dance, smile, make eye contact with the judges…have fun!

Air Guitar Competition

Air Guitar contest is all about surrendering to the music by playing the most bad-ass invisible instrument! If you can get on stage and let loose by jamming like you were taught by Jimi Hendrix (or his imaginary brother John), you have a chance to take the cash! No equipment is needed, and there is no requirement for any specific place or special skills. Know your song, bring the energy, and leave with the rewards!

Rules:

  • Contestants can use either an electric or an acoustic guitar, but they must be invisible!
  • Personal air roadies are allowed.
  • Back-up bands – air or real – are not allowed.
  • There is no dress code, and the contestants may use props as they wish. (However, any real musical instruments are forbidden.)
  • The contestant may use a real pick or even play in a finger-picking style.
