    Finals in NYC: is there any help for the 10 finalists, or is travel expense not covered?
    Also, is there any charge or fee to enter or anywhere along the way?

      Finalists will be responsible for their own transportation to the live competition.

      And there’s no entry fee! All you need to do is upload a video and submit it :-)

  4. Kallie says:

    Is it only for Americans?

  5. Sheri says:

    The rules state to submit a song that’s 1-2 minutes but most songs are longer than that. The one I’m thinking about doing is 2.45 mins. How strict are they on the time? Will that hurt my chances if it’s longer than 2 minutes? Thanks!

  6. Amanda says:

    Should the song be a capella, with a backing track, or with an accompanist? Thanks!

  7. Jordan says:

    When, exactly, and how would people be able to vote? Does it come up when the click the link at 12 tonight?
