Okey Dokey. It's that time again... time for another apology. I know I know, I can hear you gasp in surprise from here. I was in Cyprus for the (early) launch of The X Factor. I expected it to start a little bit later than it actually did. So (like everybody else online for all sorts of different reasons), I am blaming the ITV bosses.

Anyway down to business.

AUDITIONS WILL TAKE PLACE UNTILL SEPTEMBER 15TH.

This will give the judges one weekend to prepare for the weekly shows beginning the monday afterward. Each week we will eliminate one contestant through a voting process. The final decision will be made by the judges (just like The X Factor).

laracroft2122 knows the names of the judges and I hope he will announce them shortly.

Get your audition tapes (consisting of a verse and a chorus) to either me or him.

*RULES*

Right. You may not use instruments at any stage during the show. You may not digitally enhance your voice. Please, please send sound files only and put them either on PutFile or Rapid Share. During the auditions you may not sing your own song.

Let the contest begin.

VonCroy360
29-08-06, 16:39
Hmm... it says in the first post that this is based on the X-factor. What's the difference between X-factor and Pop Idol anyways? (I haven't been able to watch x-factor)
btw, I took the liberty of designing us a logo, based on the Pop Idol one:

Jake Croft

Sorry to hear your leaving! :(

Please make sure all auditions are sent to either CoxyAppo or myself as we discuss and organize them, and it's no good if we don't have access to them. Thank You

scion05
29-08-06, 19:09
Right I need to know

Is voice editing allowed, pitching, speed , tempo, echo etc ?

CoxyAppo
29-08-06, 20:48
NOPE AND PLEASE NO INSTRUMENTS EITHER.

laracroft2122, ive had some problems uploading that audition to putfile so ill just send it to you on msn.

scion05
29-08-06, 20:49
I dont think i added any anyway :)

CoxyAppo
29-08-06, 20:51
just as well, i'd hate to have to shout

"YYYYYYYYYYOOOOOOOOUUUUUUUUUUURRRRRRRRR OUT!"

scion05
29-08-06, 20:52
You should make a rules post :)
I think instrumentals should be aloud later on :)
And i imagine " YOUR OUT " will be coming soon anyway :p


ONLY EDITING I DID I THINK WAS MUTE MY BREATHS, and CUT GAPS,
AND ADD LINES TOGETHER , lol I RECORDED SEP :)

Jake Croft
29-08-06, 20:57
Back again as a Judge

CoxyAppo
29-08-06, 20:57
fair enough

Paperdoll
29-08-06, 22:06
The verse thing... I'm thinking that verse = one line but that's not what you mean right? That bit got me confused.

laralives
31-08-06, 00:20
HOw does this work :confused:

BoyTRaider
31-08-06, 00:40
Oh! Awesome! I might sing something again (all for fun :))
Btw, does it have to be with instrumentals in the background or just acapella?

VonCroy360
31-08-06, 08:15
HOw does this work :confused:

You record yourself singing a song you like, send the file to CoxyAppo or laracroft2122; then every week (starting september 18th) we select the worst participant and he gets out of the competition (we continue until there's one left) :)

Oh! Awesome! I might sing something again (all for fun :))
Btw, does it have to be with instrumentals in the background or just acapella?

I think instruments aren't allowed.

laracroft2122

To cut down time we prefer to hear you singing voice rather than some music with no voice :)

Do the songs have to be sung or can I just write somethin on my guitar?

VonCroy360
02-09-06, 14:59

I think they have to be sung without instruments.

A good idea though, we can have that kind of Idol after this one ends...
:)

BoyTRaider
02-09-06, 16:52
Yeah, I think without instruments is better because some people just don't have the resources for those kind of techniques. :)

02-09-06, 17:33
I'd love to enter but I just dont have the courage to do it XD Looking forward to hearing all the contestants =3

Soma Holiday

How exactly do I send music files to someone?

Melonie Tomb Raider
02-09-06, 18:50
Soma, you can upload your file on repidshare.com, then send the link to the person that made this topic. :)

laracroft2122
02-09-06, 19:21

Melonie Tomb Raider
04-09-06, 15:38
Hmm... Well we have some people here thinking about entering, so come on people, do it. :jmp:

BoyTRaider
04-09-06, 16:21
Instead of uploading it in a uploading/downloading website.... Why don't we put it in PutFile so that other people can stream the songs online?

They don't need to go through all the trouble downloading. :)

I recorded about ten thousand songs, and they all sounded horrible. So, I decided not to enter. Can't wait to hear the entries, though! :wve:

scion05
15-09-06, 19:47

BoyTRaider
15-09-06, 21:38
Ok, should I upload it in Putfile?

Well, I really thought of not entering, I'm sick and my voice is so husky... Almost coughed my lungs out when I finished recording.

Do you guys promise not to be too harsh on me? If so then I'll upload it... if not, then I just strained my whole voice for nothing. lol *sore throat atm*

tombraiderluka
15-09-06, 21:41
Yay,although I sound terrible in that song coz I got cold then,I don't know can I sing a song but better coz now I'm well and I sing good now too :p :( :)

BoyTRaider
15-09-06, 22:45

I just don't get why the public doesn't decide who's gonna be the winner... :confused:

I thought we're doing the x-factor thing: public votes (secretly, that one knows), then the judges count the results and announce the worst two; the judges then decide which of the two goes out...
:confused: :)

But the organisers have clearly forgot about this competition... :pi:

BoyTRaider
