How It Works
How it Works
Round 1 will be the entry round where all entries are welcome. During the initial round the submitted entries will be judged, eliminating entries down to 10 people for the next round. We will stream the judging via Livestream, and the results and the theme for the next round will be given following the stream each week.
For each additional round of the contest there will be two eliminations each week.  Eliminations will be based on our opinion based on our judging criteria, out of everyone’s entries during the night.  Each round will contain a theme that will be released after the Livestream is complete and the start of the next round is confirmed.


Judging will be based mainly upon the song choice matching the provided theme for each round as well as singing ability, such as pitching, audibility and energy.  Mixing will not be judged officially however it is recommended that you have a backtrack/instrumental to go with your entry.
All entries will need to be uploaded to a soundcloud account and the link emailed to Ryo.  If you do not have access to a soundcloud account you may email your entry in an MP3 format to Ryo at
[email protected].  Please include your LoE username in the email so we know who it is, Thank you.

Round 1 has been extended to the 4th of November at 11:50pm EST.
Every round will begin on the Tuesday following the deadline to the previous round.
Every round will end Monday at 11:59 pm, the theme to the next round will be announced at the same time. (with the exception of the first round, where contestant will be given two weeks to submit their entry, rather than one)

Hurray! A singing competition! Count me in!

If one of the judges plays the Simon Cowell role, this will be the best thing ever.

Also, I'm so in this.

does the flim-flam brother song count as a "song" even though most parts besides the chorus are spoken?  can you sing "spoiler songs", like the apple song?

I assume i'm WAY out of the loop and this is a song in S4?  If i'm wrong ignore this
If i'm right there actually is a forum rule about spoilering any media pertaining to unaired MLP episodes.  As we are livestreaming the rounds and likely posting them here we can't really spoiler them.  Since Ryo already answered this and technically we didn't actually make a rule regarding this, I will agree with Ryo on this, but I also wouldnt recommend it for the sake of people following the streams who dont want anything spoiled(Like myself)
