Vocals will make up 50% of the performer’s final score. Judges will be looking for whether or not the performer stayed on key, the strength of the vocals, control, and how well the vocals fit the song (for example, does the performer’s voice sound like it’s straining to hit notes).
Performance and/or Audience Interaction will make up the remaining 50%. Scoring in this category will be based on the type of song; for example, an upbeat song with lots of energy will have the Performance aspect weighted more heavily than the Audience Interaction aspect, while a slower, softer song might have the opposite. Judges will be looking for whether or not the performance was appropriate for the song, and whether or not Audience Interaction was attempted/achieved (again, depending on the song).
