I have done this in other forums before so I thought I should try it here too

Instructions and Rules[LIST][*]4 Judges and 16 contestants with each judge/mentor having 4 contestants each[/LIST][LIST][*]Every week you are giving a theme in which you choose a song and edit the lyrics to make them your own[/LIST][LIST][*]You and your mentor must decide together what song you are choosing from that theme; failure to do so will result in me giving you a list of songs to choose from[/LIST][LIST][*]The minimum requirement for an editted song is one verse, one chorus, another verse (or bridge/middle 8) and a final chorus - just like when they shorten songs on the actual X Factor.[/LIST][LIST][*]You usually have a week to do your song.[/LIST][LIST][*]Once you have finished your song, PM it to your mentor and to myself. This is in the event that you cannot make the "live show" and the mentor has to post it on behalf of you. If your mentor can't make it, then I will post it on your behalf.[*]On the night of the show (usually an arranged time), I will introduce you, and you must (or your mentor/or me) post your song - the judges may give their views but it isn't really necessary.[/LIST][LIST][*]Once everyone has "performed", the judges will PM me their favourite in order of preference, with 6 (in the case of week 1) being their favourite and 1 being the least favourite; NOTE: JUDGES CANNOT VOTE FOR THEIR OWN CONTESTANT!!![/LIST][LIST][*]The judges are given a day to do this and on that night, I will announce the results live...and yes I do add the tension hahaahahahaha.[/LIST][LIST][*]The two contestants with the least votes will be in the sing-off where they must post their own editted save-me song...it can be anything.[/LIST][LIST][*]The judges will then post LIVE who they are sending home (no need for explanation but they can if they want) and the person with the most will be sent home.[/LIST][LIST][*]This competition will last a maximum of 12 weeks but could be less.[/LIST]

If you want to be a JUDGE or a CONTESTANT then please post below, specifying what you want to do!

Any questions then PM me or leave a message below
I URGE you to play as it's good fun!
Thanks

This is a very interesting and different game, I would be up for this if I wasn't so busy with two other games as well as University work, but I will be watching as a viewer.

That's fine, but a judge position isn't as time consuming as contestants, the bare minimum you would have to do is rank the contestants song and vote in the sing off. but if you dont want to then thats okay :L

Basically in every round you are given a song to "sing" (edit lol). Your job is edit the lyrics and make them your own. The minimum you have to do is one verse, the chorus, the abridgement (middle 8, etc, whatever you like to call the last verse before the final chorus) and of course the final chorus. But if you want, you can edit the whole song.

Here is an example of one done in another forum

Take That - Rule The World

You colour the rainbow up above me.
Set my heart alight as you swear you love me, yeah yeah.
Don't take the light...
Don't fade away,
Don't fade away.

Oh. Yeah, see our hearts are tattooed in the stars,
Just let me be your girl...
Then we can rule the world.
Yeah, why don't we both just light up the sky,
Just look into my eyes,
And we can rule the world.

When my heart, it bled, you were my hero.
I swear to God, that I see your halo, yeah yeah.
You've saved my soul.
Don't leave me now,
Don't leave me now.

Oh. Yeah, see our hearts are tattooed in the stars,
Just let me be your girl,
Then we can rule the world.
Yeah why don't we both just light up the sky,
Just look into my eyes, and we can rule the world.

And if you see a star die tonight,
That's cause you turned your back tonight...
I need you,
I need you.
All the stars are coming out tonight,
They're lighting up the sky tonight,
For you,
For you...

Yeah, see our hearts are tattooed in the stars,
Just let me be your girl...
Then we can rule the world.
Yeah, why don't we both just light up the sky,
Just look into my eyes,
And we can rule the world.
But basically you know in the actual x factor, the song is cut down and its usually

Verse
Chorus
Abridgement
Chorus

so stick to that and you'll do good :L
Interested??

I'd say it's because there's a few games currently going on at the moment, once one or two games finish, then there'll be a lot more available.
