Song cropping???
« on: July 30, 2008, 01:44:40 AM »
It says in the rules this:

Songs must be in their original format as on the released CD and may not be edited, cropped, remixed, or otherwise altered by the contestant or other party in any way. Remixes that have appeared on an officially released CD (for example, one of the many different remixes by Ayumi Hamasaki) are acceptable.



So, I am a little confuse, and have a question to ask. The song I want to perform is Rise by Origa. but the song goes thirty seconds after the 5 minute mark... There is a little in the beginning that I could take out, and some in the middle to make it fit under 5 minutes, but is that against the rules? I just wanna sing this song, but be singing all the lyrics...

Unfortunately yes, those are against the rules. But, my first year that I sang during the contest, mine was also just over the time limit. What they do, is they let it run through the time limit and then they just fade it out towards the end. Do you keep singing to the end, or is just instrumental? If it's just instrumental, then it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

Hope that helps....
