Seven successful candidates will be posted on the door of the audition room 1 hour after the auditions are finished. Contestants who fail to follow rules or show up for the actual idol concert will be disqualified. Please arrive for the finale 30 mins before it is scheduled to begin. Instructions will be posted on the door of the audition room.
If you have any questions, you can email shana@unplugged.com

Unplugged Idol Finale

30 mins prior to the finale, the contestants will meet up in a room where they must write a short blurb about their song and themselves which the host would read out to introduce them. They will be given time to practice, prepare, and see the stage.

Contestants will be judged on memorization, clarity, difficulty, flair, crowd reaction, and the judge’s personal choice.

The winner of Unplugged Idol will receive:

•    two (2) passes to UX 2015
•    a certificate
•    their name and song forever immortalized on the UX website
•    the chance to perform their song again at the closing ceremonies
•    to become a judge at next year’s UX Idol if they want.
