How to Participate: Contestants of the CoverTheseLyrics (“CTL”) Contest must choose and perform in a lyric video, music video, or MP3 recording one (1) lyric only from the select six on pages titled “Lyrics Page 1” and “Lyrics Page 2”. Contestants have the option of performing the lyric with original music created by the Contestant (see CTL License for details) or the contestant may perform the lyric a cappella. Contestants may NOT add or subtract any lines from the lyrics. Failure to comply with this requirement may result in disqualification. Contestants may, however, repeat or move lyric lines in their performance as long as all lines of the lyric are covered in the performance. Upon completion, contestants must choose one of the two options; (1) upload their performance lyric or music video to YouTube AND submit the performance video to CTL by copying and pasting the YouTube URL of the uploaded video into the “Upload Your Submission” page of CoverTheseLyrics.com or (2) upload a copy of their MP3 file of their performance to the submit form on the ‘Upload Your Submission’ where the MP3 options are located. Failure to submit an uploaded performance video to CTL may result in disqualification (see CTL License for details)
