If you can’t sing in front of them, sit alongside them: judge along in the Best Seats In The House


“That was an 86,” you whisper to your seatmate. “No way they don’t make the Ten.” The arena rustles with the sound of hundreds of similar whispered conversations. Everyone, it seems, is an expert. Yet the contest itself is decided by 15 pros sitting in the prime spot in front of the stage.

How would your scores stack up? And how would it sound sitting in the Judging Area?
