Official Rules

Guidelines & Disclaimers

  • The Molly’s Music Holiday Sing-Off Contest is open to anyone, no matter their age, who has had at least one lesson at Molly’s Music.
  • Songs performed must be winter or holiday themed (any holiday, as long as it happens in late November or December).
  • Song and video must be family-friendly. Songs or videos that contain explicit materials or themes will be automatically disqualified.
  • Solos, duets, and trios are welcome; please note, prizes will need to be split amongst group members.

  • All submissions will be entered into the preliminary round. Finalists will be chosen from there, and the best overall, as well as other category winners will be chosen from the finalists.

Contest Categories

One winner will be selected for each of the following categories.

Musicianship

This is where all that technique from music lessons comes in. We’ll look at everything from rhythmic precision to tonal accuracy. Difficulty level is taken into account, so don’t worry if you need to ex out one or two of Mariah Carey’s runs in “All I Want for Christmas.”

Personal
Musical Style

This is where you make the song your own. Sure, maybe you don’t sound like Dean Martin on “I’ll be Home for Christmas,” but you sound like you. Maybe that’s reflected by an indie pop version of “Let it Snow,” or maybe it’s an operatic version of “O Holy Night,” or a death metal version of “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus.” Whatever your style is, make sure you let it shine to win this category.

Holiday Spirit

Whether you show off your holiday spirit by including your labradoodle wearing elf ears or by dressing your baby brother up as a spinning dreidel, make sure your creative juices are flowing before trying to win this category!

Best Overall

The winner from the three categories that gets awarded the most points overall wins this category!

Your Submission

Have fun, be creative!

Have fun and be creative with your submission! Feel free to dress up, put reindeer antlers on your cat (with your parents’ permission), or use a candy cane as a microphone. We want to see your holiday spirit!
