CRITERIA FOR JUDGING:
Below is the basis of judging to get the winners. Also, appropriate total marks will be apportioned to each criterion by the Judges as soon as they are selected.
CRITERIA 1 – STAGE PERFORMANCE
The Judges are in search of a DJ that is confident and is able to show it, whether by ‘fist pumping’, ‘head nodding’, dancing in front of the crowd, or anything; participants need to be moving his/her body in order to gain mark. In other words, the participants need to own the stage.
CRITERIA 2 – PROGRAMMING / CROWD REACTION
The judges are looking out for, how well a DJ is getting the crowd charged up? Is the DJ reading the crowd and playing the right songs? If the crowd is not feeling the DJ, the judges would certainly not be feeling the DJ as well. So, the DJ will lose marks.
CRITERIA 3 – TECHNICAL ABILITY
The Judges are looking out for originality in the Deejaying craft. How good is the DJ in Scratching, Mixing, Beat Juggling, Drumming and transition into another song. The judges want to be sure that the DJ owns the remix he/she is playing. If the remix a DJ is playing is not original to the DJ (playing recorded mix) the DJ is disqualified.
CRITERIA 4 – DRESS CODE
Here the judges are looking out for appropriate dress or fashion sense. This criterion is included to instill a decent fashion sense. Improper dressing makes one to loose mark.
