Congrats to all :) I had a lot of fun listening to all the entries! Even though, it did take me about a week.

You have to post in the comments exactly, as it says in the comment box here.

Yeah, it took me a while to figure this out. One of the major reasons why I missed out last Idol.

I have a question, by way of the rules for next season. Since an a capella song could include one in which we use our voices to create the background music (Similar to beatboxing, but more melodic), why are they not allowed?

I understand the idea of it being against the rules to not have any background music, but I feel it'd take even more vocal talent and skill to create the background track with your voice. Such as Imogen Heap's 'Earth', or anything at all by the Voca-people (Whom I highly recommend checking out. Even if you don't like the style of music, it's still amazing).

Just throwing that out there. It'd be a nice way for people to raise the bar, and it could be even more interesting for the judges.

Good question Horizon.
My inclination is to allow this creative option.
I will wait to hear what the other judges (and anyone else who cares to leave feedback) have to say before making a decision.

I wasn't here when the 'no acapellas are aloud' rule was implemented,
but my thing against them used in these later competitions is that people don't have the quality equipment for acapellas.
Also it takes a relatively soothing vocalist to make an acapella work or it's just "someone singing acapella".

I don't mind them being aloud however it can make or break you even worst than choosing a bad song for GI for me.
Because if your voice doesn't sound crisp for acapellas, that can affect you negatively,
if your composition and depth of the bgm doesn't work, that'll only hurt you worst.
Maybe if it's based off of a real song than yeah I might say "yes", but a free composed acapella I'm not so sure about.

Of course not everyone's recommended to do acapellas, however if you do acapellas, there should be a standard of rules for them as well,
such as maybe if you enter with an acapella you have to continue doing them similar to the duet rule.
I'm definitely not suggesting this but maybe go AI and have the first round all acapella and than the rest are songs, I'unno.
There's a bunch of things that can change, I'm good with whatever Pame and Gendou decides.

Basically all I'm saying is that you better be confident and know what you're doing for acappellas. :)

Obviously it'd be harder, but it's the same concept as singing a really challenging song. A singer could still do either really well or really terribly. If pulled off well, it'd be great for whomever tried to sing it, and if not, then you'd get the same reaction as any other lower-ranked cover.

Again, it's just a suggestion. It would indeed be challenging, but it may give the judges some really, truly creative songs to listen to, and it would give good singers bonus points.

I think it'd be cool. I don't know how many people would actually try, but there are a lot of people capable of it.

If it was a live contest like AI , I would definitely do acapella, because that's how you can really see if the person is a true singer e.g: Rhythm, intonation, etc etc.

When it comes to an online contest, I would rather have someone sing with background music.

But, I wouldn't be against someone doing acapella thing as a background in the future. Though, I'll be honest with you. If someone can pull it off, then great, but then again, they would have to do the rest of the entries in the same way. It will be fun to judge, because I will be able to notice a note that is off right away, and well...judging will the tougher for that person.

Maybe, next season, we'll allow it. Maybe.

Thanks for the suggestion ^^

You guys really should make auditions last longer. I've been trying to audition for three years and miss it every time.

fightingtosurvive, a longer sign-up period won't help you because the maximum number of contestants is always reached long before the close date for sign-ups.

Fightingtosurvive: Gendou Idol is made for our active users, so in the future, I suggest you keep checking the music thread for any information regarding the contest. Usually, I announce the new season 1 to 2 weeks prior to sign-ups open, so that should be enough time ^-^
