music. It has to be a song or melody, which will fit the time limit that is allowed for the
Team or Showcase respectively. It is not allowed to select different songs or melodies and
mix them together. Tempo and style of the music is free but the minimal number of
choruses must be 2 (two). Most likely the team will use an internationally well known
song or melody which people know.
b. Judges mark teams into the next round by using the 2-dimensional system, by giving 2
marks, one for Technical Merit, the other for Artistic Merit. Normally around 50% of the
teams should be marked in each criterion.

patting the head, boxing movements, head turns, tilting of the body and similar easy
movements. It is important that the same move or movements are repeated for the same
part of the song or melody.

groups or two large groups, who take turns and interact with each other in a playful way.
