The Northshore's local vocal competition
What is Voice St. Tammany?
A local singing competition hosted by Center Of Performing Arts and WYLK Lake 94.7FM
There are three nights of preliminary competition. Each night will include two rounds of blind auditions. Contestants will then be voted into The Finals, held on a separate night, where we will declare the winner(s).
What are "blind" auditions?
Contestants are given a number to determine the order in which they will sing. They will stand behind a curtain and sing into a microphone. You are judged solely on your voice. No one will know who you are.
What happens in each round?
In Round One, contestants will sing for our panel of judges. The judges will take a moment after all of the contestants have performed to narrow it down to two or three contestants to sing in round two.
In Round Two, contestants will sing again for the live audience in attendance. The audience will then vote, via a ballot handed out at the beginning of the night, for the voice that they think is best. The contestant with the highest number of audience votes will earn a seat in The Finals.
What happens in The Finals?
The Finals will be held on a separate night after the third night of preliminaries. This night will work similarly to the preliminaries except each finalist will sing on stage in front of our judges and the live audience (not blind). The judges will have first elimination, leaving us with the top two contestants. Those contestants will sing for the audience who will then vote for who they think is the Voice St. Tammany Winner.
What does the winner receive?
The winner will receive a $200 cash prize, airplay and exposure on WYLK Lake 94.7FM, and of course, bragging rights!
