Submit Your Audition Video

Aspiring acapella and vocal group harmony singers are invited to audition for The Next Doo Wop Star worldwide talent search. The search will culminate with a March 2018 national PBS special and digital interactive show celebrating the Doo Wop era in American musical history.

Guidelines for Submitting an Audition Video

See complete guidelines.

Auditions must be original, unpublished performances that respect all copyrights and trademarks. Live performances of published songs are accepted. No lip-syncing allowed.

Performers must be US residents, 13 years or older. Limit one audition per group, one group submission per person.

Audition videos should feature your group’s live performance of one song between two to four minutes long.

Videos must not contain any material that is sexually explicit, violent, discriminatory, or that promotes illegal activities.


Can I enter more than one video?2021-06-29T22:59:27+00:00

We allow only one audition per group and no person may be a part of more than one group submitting an audition tape. Any additional audition videos will be void.

Who is the judging the auditions?2021-06-29T22:58:57+00:00

All eligible audition videos submitted will be reviewed by one or more judges who are knowledgeable about Doo Wop music, based on the overall quality of your vocal performance, faithfulness to the Doo Wop tradition, and choreography and costume.

Will there be compensation for performing on television?2021-06-29T22:58:28+00:00

If we choose to include your performance in a television program or a video that we distribute, you will get the attendant publicity, which we hope will advance the cause of Doo Wop and perhaps of your career, and if we use that performance for any commercial purpose you will receive a talent fee.

Is there a submission fee?2021-06-29T22:56:32+00:00

There is no fee to audition and if you are selected, we will pay basic travel and lodging expenses.
