Open Mic contest @ Blufrog, Chesapeake, VirginiaOpen Mic Contest -  Blu Frog

Enter for a chance to play a Saturday night gig at Blu Frog Bar and Grill* and win a tablet computer*, with $50 cash prizes for two runners-up! Of course, Open Mic Wednesday is open to all as usual, you don’t have to compete to perform, but why wouldn’t you? There will be a separate sign-up sheet for the contest.

Four Weekly Rounds with Two Semi-Finalists Each Week

Each week (May 21, May 28, June 4 and June 11) we’ll choose two semi-finalists from that night’s participants. Each act will perform the same number of songs (determined by the number of entries). Semi-finalists will be announced after the last contest performance of the night each week and posted on Facebook. You can enter as many times as you wish, so don’t lose hope if you don’t get selected the first time, come back and try again!

On both June 18 and June 25, four of the eight winners from the first round will compete for two places in the final. Each act will perform the
same number of songs. Finalists will be announced after the last contest performance of the night each week and posted on Facebook.

The Finals

The next week (July 2), the four finalists will compete for the grand prize. Each act will perform the same number of songs. The winner and two
runners-up will be announced at the end of the last contest performance of the night and posted on Facebook.

Scoring

Scoring will be done by a panel of judges and by audience votes, so your friends and fans can come out and help you win but you also have to please
the judges! Judges will score on a 1-10 scale. Each audience vote (one vote per person each night, cast after the last contest performance of the night) counts the same as one judge’s point. In the event of a tie, judges will confer to select the winners or, if time permits, they will call competitors back for additional performances. Scoring totals will not be announced for each competitor. Only the finalists’ name and total score will be announced at the end of the night each week.

*Prizes

The grand prize for the overall winner will be:

* A full Saturday night gig at Blu Frog Bar and Grill. Date and rate to be agreed between the winner and Blu Frog,and…
A TeSoar® 7″ 8GB Black Tablet PC Allwinner A13 Processor Google Android 4.0 Multi-touch Capacitive Screen TF/MiniSD Card Supported 1.3M Front Camera

The two runners-up on the final night will each receive a $50 cash prize.

Eligibility (and the fine print!)

Although Open Mic Wednesday welcomes a wide range of performers (including stand-up comedy, magicians, poetry, etc.), this is a music-only contest.

Registration for the four first-round nights will be from 7:30pm until 8:30pm. Performances can be covers or original material and may include any musical genre. Acts can be solo performers or duos, trios or bands (note that there’s only one tablet up for grabs though!). Judges will be considering singing/musical talent, stage presence and entertainment value; their decision is final, of course. Be aware that there may be open mic performers who are not participating in the contest, but we will make best efforts to schedule the contest performances in a timely manner. You can enter as many times as you wish, so don’t lose hope if you don’t get selected the first time, come back and try again!
