A few rules for submission:

  • Videos must contain 90 seconds of a recent performance.
  • Max length is 2 minutes so that only leaves 30 seconds of commentary.
  • Performances must be live, not video edited to make you look good.
  • Lip syncing is also a no-no.
  • You need a YouTube account to enter.


The biggest tip they give for success is to use popular music for musical entries.  Playing some weird, inappropriate song isn’t going to make anyone want to give you some thumbs up.


Submissions are due before June 23, and voting starts June 28.

      @ShockerSH – You know what, I think you have a really good point there. I’ve been writing an article about that for the last 2 months now… Just haven’t been able to finish off my final thoughts on the topic.

      But yes, YouTube is taking over that’s for sure. They are in an AMAZING position and with their world wide audience, the “networks” should watch out because there is nothing slowing them down (unless the GOV get involved and try to regulate it…???).
