Regular Season Play and Scoring Format
Teams will be matched up weekly, in round robin, head-to-head competition, for three rounds. Rounds 1 and 2 are worth three points each unless otherwise stated. Round 3 is worth five points unless otherwise stated. The most possible points during an evening is eleven.
During Rounds 1 and 2, each team will typically feature a solo performer. The performer(s) with the most votes wins the round. The solo performer who receives the highest percentage of votes in comparison to the rest of the soloists will be named Vocal Virtuoso of the night. Round 3 will feature a group of two or more performers. The group with the most votes wins the round. The group that receives the highest percentage of votes in comparison to the rest of the groups will be named Star Squad of the night.
Postseason Play and Scoring Format
Seeding is set according to a team’s accumulation of points during the regular season. To add another element to the scoring system, judges are added. In addition to votes from the public, each round scored by judges is worth an additional three points for Rounds 1 and 2 and five points for Round 3 making twenty-two the most points possible during a matchup. The most points accumulated between judges and public votes wins the match. In the event of a tie, the team with the most points from the judge wins.
Scoring and Tiebreakers
A tiebreaker is used only when deciding the seeding for playoffs. If two or more teams have the same amount of points accumulated, the following is the order by which seeding is determined:
- Most overall matches won
- Winning percentage
- Head-to-head results in matchups between the teams involved
- Most group rounds won throughout the season
- Most group rounds won between the teams involved
- Most Vocal Virtuoso wins
- Most Vocal Virtuoso wins between the teams involved
(Note: In a tie of three-or-more teams, if two teams remain tied after third or other teams are eliminated during any step, tie breaker reverts to step 1 with the remaining teams)
