The Finale Song is not announced until the end of the event. Anyone is eligible to participate in the final round, even those who already performed! In the final round however, entrants will be selected by the judges – so if you already performed, your prior performance may be how they base their selections!
If you are practiced and able – Voguing -spins, hands, death drops are acceptable. No jumping off the stage or hard acrobatics.
No need to register in advance, just show up! Contestants are picked from the audience.
Will you win by choreography or being able to De-liv-er every syllable in Electric Shock? Is acting up that Disney song your forte? Play to your strengths!
You do not need to be in costume, but it adds to the performance element.
Judging is based off of three things: Knowing the words, choreography, and presence. This also factors in cosplaying elements – are you using parts of your costume i.e. a cape/prop to add to your performance? Are you nervous or owning the stage? Are you working the crowd or staying in one, stationary place?
So grab that costume, get dressed, and get ready to either perform or support the performers!
