Round 1 Videos: Our judges are not looking for editing or production value in the videos. They are looking for raw talent captured on video. Example: Use your phone and capture yourself singing. Use your computer to capture yourself playing an instrument. Maybe you performed a solo 30 years ago and have the performance recorded. You can either submit that video by uploading the file or you can upload it to YouTube or Vimeo and put the link in your application. Keep the video simple but let your talent shine. Please make sure you follow the rules.
