You are ineligible if you already have any type of talent representation (for example, a talent agent or manager), a music recording contract, a merchandising agreement, or any other contractual arrangement that would prohibit you from entering into a management contract, recording contract and merchandising contract. Employees, officers, directors, agents, representatives, and their immediate family members and those living in the same household of Hillel of San Diego, production personnel for the program, participating media stations, advertising agencies, corporate sponsors or any person or entity connected with the production, or administration, of the auditions, or any of their respective parent companies, affiliates, subsidiaries, agents or representatives are not eligible. The First Place Winner of Campus SuperStar San Diego from any prior year is not eligible.
Finalists for Campus SuperStar San Diego 2016 will be selected from among the eligible vocalists who successfully complete the auditions process. You may audition for Campus SuperStar San Diego only once per academic year. (Pick your audition location and time slot carefully.)
You must present documentation from your school’s registrar to validate your standing as a full-time student at a college or university in San Diego County, when you sign-in for your audition.
You must audition live, by yourself in the designated room in front of the judges. Guests are not permitted in the room during the audition. Pre-recorded auditions will not be accepted. Your audition must be between 45 seconds and two (2) minutes long. You may pick any style of music that suits you and that you feel shows off your voice the best. (We want you to be at your best, so pick the song and key that makes you sound great!) You must sing with the accompanist at the audition. Auditions cannot be performed a cappella nor with a recorded backup track. You must provide sheet music for the accompanist assembled for fewest page turns, in plastic non-glare sheet protectors, in a standard 3-ring C-ring (rounded, not D-shaped or other) one-inch to 2.5-inch binder. No loose sheets, no double sided or unattached music. You are welcome to get professional coaching to prepare your audition. If you need to obtain sheet music for a song you would like to perform, visit a local music store or check online; musicnotes.com and sheetmusicplus.com are good places to start.
You should arrive 15 minutes prior to your assigned audition time slot and warmed-up. You may be invited to audition early. If you show up late, you may not get the chance to audition. Be sure to leave enough time to find parking, and walk to the audition room.
By participating in the audition, you consent that you are available for an audition call-back on March 6, 2016 in the evening, to participate in all required rehearsals (schedule to be determined by the Musical Director; Date will be determined before 1/30/16) and to rehearse the dress rehearsal on April 9 (exact times TBA, but most likely in the morning), and compete at the Final event in the evening of April 10, 2016 (Call time 4pm) If you are called back for a semi-final audition, you must sing the same section of the same song. Since, the evening is also a night of entertainment for our guests, the Music Director will make the final decision about what song you will perform at the Final event, but it will be selected in a way to accomplish both goals: Making you sound good, and making the show enjoyable.
The prize for the First Place winner of Campus SuperStar 2016 is $5,000; Second Place is $1,500; and Third Place is $1,000.
If you make it to the Final Round, you will need to provide a recent, high-quality photo of yourself, suitable for putting in the program, and a written bio about yourself, less than 200 words. This may be edited for length and content.
If you make it to the Final Round, the Music Director will work with you to make sure your choice of outfit is appealing and suitable for the song you are singing, and for the type of audience that will be present.
