7PM - 10PM
Ramada Inn 9415 HWY 49
Gulfport MS 39503..
The audition is more of a SCREENING, and not really a performance, do not expect to perform on a stage with a large audience watching during the first day. Once you make it to the audition room, you will be given 30 sec to 1 min to present your talent to the judges ONLY. All auditions will be a cappella. (no music) You are being judged based on your POTENTIAL to perform in front of a large audience, and how SERIOUS you are about being an artist. This is NOT a reality show, so judges are ONLY there to eliminate those who display LIMITED OR NO level of skill or potential. A large percentage of those who audition WILL make it to the next round. After the audition, you will go to a waiting area to determine whether you have been selected for the next round. The entire process should be about 20 minutes. (not including wait-in-line time) Most contestants will know whether or not they have been accepted for round 2 before leaving the venue. Other contestants may be notified by telephone or email. If you are called back to the second round (the showcase) you will need to prepare at least 3 min 30 sec worth of material to perform in front of a live audience. You will be scored based on the judges and the audience. In order to better your chances, you will need to invite your friends and family members to support you in round 2.
