Judging/Scoring (how to win)

Lip-sync Battle will be broken up into two rounds.

  • Round One: All 12 teams

  • Round Two: Top 3 teams

Each category will be worth 15 points each. In case of a tie, the act with the highest audience response score will win. The judges’ decisions will be final!

Judging Categories:

Both rounds will be judged in these categories:     

  • Lip Sync Abilities: How well the performer(s) lip-sync the lyrics of the song.

  • Creativity: How original and creative the performance is. Instead of just standing on stage and lip syncing a song - props, choreography, costumes and/or other ideas should be used and will impress the judges. Be creative!

  • Stage Presence & Choreography: Again, don’t just stand there! Engage the audience, dance, smile, make eye contact with the judges and crowd...you’re a STAR --- have fun!

  • Audience Response: Engage the audience: get them clapping, cheering, and singing along.
