TALENT - TIME LENGTH: Talent length cannot exceed 90 seconds. CDs ONLY.... NO TAPES The time length will be strictly regulated. Talent will be timed on Friday night at rehearsal. Each CD should contain only the one selection that has been chosen for talent, we are unable to cut or fade CDs. Each CD should have the contestant�s name on the CD. A master CD will be developed which contains each talent selection as well as production music. The CD will not be returned until the night of the pageant. You should retain another CD to use for practice. A late fee of $25.00 will be charged to any contestant who does not turn in her final talent CD by the deadline.
TALENT BACKGROUND ENHANCEMENTS - Regardless of the talent performed, the background CD cannot have voices, instrumentation, or other noises, which mimic the talent of the contestant. (Example: A vocalist may have background vocals with "oohs and aahs� or other background lyrics, but cannot have a CD with a voice singing the melody line. The same would be said for instrumentalist, dancers, and any other talent, which could provide for an unfair advantage if a judge could not delineate from the talent on the track versus the live perforce of the contestant.
