Things You Should Know about being a Contestant in Huntsville Superstar 2017!
SHOW #3 UPDATE — It has been a little over a week since we’ve posted any significant information about the show. During this time, many people throughout the area have endured harsh conditions while undergoing personal tragedies – some folks have even lost everything. Because of this, we decided that it would be in poor taste to promote a show in the midst of all of the suffering, and wish to express our deepest feelings of sorrow for any victim’s loss and/or displacement. We are also keenly aware that not all Huntsville Superstar participants were negatively affected by the hurricane, and we wish for them to know of our gratitude for their patience during all of the waiting.
After much thought and consideration for the need of some positive morale, we’ve decided to move forward through all the turmoil – and proceed with the show on its regular scheduled evening of Saturday, September 23, and furthermore, donate a portion of the entire evening’s proceeds to Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts. We feel that it’ll be a great way for all of us to serve!
From today (September 1), this gives us THREE WEEKS to prepare. We’ll work on our end to prepare the Theatre – which has definitely undergone its own share of water damage, while each contestant prepares another 1 ½ (1 min. 30 Sec.) song to compete in round #3. Once again, the contestant’s song should be 1 Minute and 30 Seconds in length.
IMPORTANT — Unless you plan on accompanying yourself on guitar, so that we can properly add your song to the show’s timeline, please email your 1 min. and 30 sec. song to us (in mp3 format) by no later than Tuesday, September 19th at: firstname.lastname@example.org
IF YOU ARE ACCOMPANYING YOURSELF — Please email, and let us know ASAP at: email@example.com
ONLINE VOTING is ready, and set to begin this coming Monday at 11:00 am at: http://huntsvillesuperstar.com/wp/index.php/vote/

Make sure that your mp3 file has only one (1) song on it. Please DO NOT submit an mp3 with multiple tracks on it. It must be well labeled with your name, and the name of your song, and, once again (VERY IMPORTANT), must be NO LONGER THAN 1.5 MINUTES IN LENGTH. That’s 1 ½ minutes long. On this upcoming show, you will have a minute and a half to perform and impress the audience and judges. This is equivalent to about the length of a verse and a chorus. Make it work! It can be done. The contestants on the television competitions do it all the time.
IMPORTANT – UNLESS YOU WILL BE ACCOMPANYING YOURSELF ON GUITAR, WE MUST RECEIVE THIS MUSIC BY TUESDAY EVENING SEPTEMBER 19th, AS WE WILL NEED TO TRANSFER ALL CONTESTANTS SONGS ONTO ONE MASTER SHOW TIMELINE. EMAIL IT TO: email@example.com
These live shows will be filmed – and the video posted the following week (when possible). Because of this – the show must flow well, thus the reason for creating a master Timeline. So, please, we need your music by Tuesday September 19th! Editing music and creating an mp3 is an extremely common thing these days. If you can’t do it – find a friend who can. We will be providing more information on this subject soon.
SOUND CHECK – We always try and have a sound check (starting at 4:00pm, and ending absolutely NLT 5:30pm) for anyone who wishes to participate. This gives contestants the opportunity to get a feel for performing their song to music in the Old Town Theatre environment – along with giving the sound-person an opportunity to pre-mix the contestants voice to music. Of course, arriving at 4pm for sound check is solely up to each contestant, and those who do not participate WILL NOT be penalized in any way. However, We have always found such sound-checks to be extremely beneficial to the performer.
CALL TIME – Except for those contestants who have made previous arrangements, we respectfully request that all contestants arrive, and are backstage by the time we open the theatre doors at 6pm.
Once again, we are looking forward to seeing everyone on Saturday September 23, 2017 at the Old Town Theatre on 12th Street in Huntsville, TX.
