Again, not going to lengthen the suspense. Voting is up, so go check out the audio. Vote fairly, we'll be watching and a big congratulations to both Heather and Rachel for getting this far. There are 2 audios from each contestant and the one who is more consistant and has the highest average vote will win.
Final Time - 10th March 2004
I'm not going to
keep you all in suspense, the results of Round 4 are as follows;
BrOxATL02 - 3.25
HoNeY bAbY -
for voting. Sorry to lose Brian and Molly in this round, you came so
far, to fall at the last hurdle (well discounting the final which I guess
is the biggest of them all), but I guess 2 people had to go and I'm glad
it wasn't a decision I had to make.
So everything is
set up for the All Diva Final between Heather and Rachel. Just a
reminder to take a look at the
song sheet as there are 2 songs to record
in this round. The person with the highest combined total for both
songs will win!!!
And what are the
prizes again, I hear you ask;
Well, the winner
will receive a Level 3 prize from the Prize Bin, 50 membership points, and
get the top featured spot on Christina Showcase.
up will receive a Level 2 prize from the Prize Bin, 25 membership
points, and the second featured spot on Christina Showcase.
Good luck to
you both! (and don't forget to get the audio in because losing on a
technicality would be even worse). You have until the 21st, as
there are 2 audios to record.
Round 4 (Judges Comments) - 1st March 2004
Round 4 - 29th February 2004
Yup we've reached Round 4 already.
Happy leap year to everyone at CMM,
just think, this day won't come around for another 4 years...
However, another week passed by and
it's update time once again on CMM Idol. The voting is all up for
the 4th Round and this is where things get REALLY tense because after this
round only 2 people will be left to duel it out in the Final Round!!!
Don't forget to vote (fairly) for your
favourites because every vote does count and you don't want them to fall
at the second to last hurdle now do you?

Due to confusion and a lot
of questions that have come up about CMM Idol. We have updated the FAQ
(below), and made things much easier to understand.

So What Do I Need?
A microphone, a good
voice (preferably) and a program on your computer which will allow you
to record yourself. There is a program which allows you to
record yourself bundled with Windows called Sound Recorder, but you
will notice that it will only record up to 60 seconds before cutting
you off unless you record blankly repeatedly.
suggest a program called Audacity that you can download for PC
HERE or for MAC
HERE , which allows you

voting of the first round will cut down all the auditionees to 10
finalists. In each round following this, 2 contestants will be lost in
each round by voting (unless of cases such as non submittal in which
only the contestant who came last will be eliminated that week as well
as the disqualification of the non submitter).

Level 2 prize from the Prize Bin, 25 membership points, and the second

Does The Entry Have To Be?
can be as long as you wish although we ask that there be a verse and a
chorus and that it is no longer than 3 minutes.
Is There A Size limit?
the file should be smaller than 2MB so that it can be submitted to the
File Submission Utility, although if that is not possible you can
attach it to an email stating your CMM Username and send it to
What Software To Use?
You can use any audio software providing that you are able to save to
mp3 or use a convertor to mp3. However we feature "Audacity" which you
can download from the mainpage in CMM Idol (MAC and PC versions).
How Will It
difficult to manage, however the judging of the audition round will be
done by reliable judges ensuring that the best 10 talents get through
to the finals. There are many members of CMM so popularity will be
cancelled out by talent, as although one person may get votes from
their friends, there are many members who will be voting on talent.
What Happens In Each Round?
round, the contestants can chose a song from the list provided then
get to perform their choice for all of CMM to listen. In the audition
round, anyone can submit an MP3 to be considered for the finals. The
voting in this round will be done by a panel of 3 judges.
round of the finals, only the contestants who qualified for the finals
can submit audio. Again all of CMM can listen to the files, although
this time will be able to vote. After the votes have been tallied ,
the 2 contestants with the lowest votes get eliminated.
Submission Be Displayed?
submission will be displayed in "The Audio" section of CMM Idol.
How Does The Voting Work?
allowed to vote each round for the contestant you believe to have the
best talent. The voting will be done on a scale of 5. With 5 being the
highest and 1 being the lowest. You give your score for each of the
contestants and the average of all of the votes will be used as the
voting results. This is to allow the maximum fairness as it works as a
voting system better than "vote for your favourite" or "vote for the
worst", this method would mean that if someone thought that 2 people
were equally as good/poor, they would only be able to choose one of
them. If all of the people felt the same, and voted for the same
person, there would end up with the other being safe/eliminated. You
will only be able to vote if you have listened to the audio file.
How Were The Judges Chosen?
were chosen by the Promotion Team Managers in order of who will be
able to do the job fairly. The judges chosen are reliable and fair
What Is The Role Of The Judges?
will pick the 10 contestants who will advance to the final rounds as
well as give comments on the contestants audio clips and performances
on the comments section of the CMM Idol Page and in the event of a tie
, the judges get to decide the tie breaker.
