The 18th annual Campus Superstar event on IU’s campus is now accepting first-round auditions from Indiana college students.
Campus Superstar is Indiana’s annual college campus singing competition. The winner of this competition can receive up to $5000. IU Hillel, a Jewish community on IU’s campus, organizes this event as a fundraiser.
These auditions can be performed in-person or virtually and are due on Jan. 31. Auditions are being held in person Jan. 23 on a first-come, first-serve basis until the end of the audition period. Virtual auditions can be submitted with the registration form.
Auditions will be held in Bloomington, but the exact location is still being decided. Participants should prepare a 60-second song, which they will perform a capella.
Before singing, participants are asked to introduce themselves and the name of their song. For virtual auditions, the completed audition should then be uploaded to YouTube as a private video. This video should have no lip-syncing, live performances or edits.
Participants who make it past this first round of auditions will be notified before the semi-final showcase, which is set to be held in the IU Media School from 1-5 p.m. on March 4. The semi-final showcase will be held with live performances.
The final live show will be held in Indianapolis on April 10. The live show will be nationally televised and live streamed. Only the top 10 contestants will compete.
All participants must be enrolled as full-time college students in the state of Indiana and upload a photo of their COVID-19 vaccination card to the registration form, otherwise, they may not compete.
