Eligibility / Audition Guidelines


  • All contestants must be at least 18 years of age.
  • All styles of music are welcome.
  • We will be auditioning Singers, Rappers, Songwriters, and Music Producers!
  • Although we have picked certain specific islands on which to host our auditions this next season, it is not necessary for contestants to live on those islands, neither is it necessary for contestants to be from the Caribbean region whatsoever. As long as contestants reach the age requirement, they are eligible to sign up to audition.
  • We strongly urge contestants to have their own original songs / original music already written and ready to perform at the auditions. If you do not yet have your own original music, you may still audition with a cover song (if necessary)… however, if you are picked to advance to the next rounds, you will need to create your own music in time for the “Semi-Final” and “Grand Finale” concerts in May 2017. If necessary, our in-house artist developers, song writers and music producers will help create and arrange your music with you.
  • Passports are required for all contestants (for travel reasons)
  • Contestants must be willing to work hard at their craft in order to possibly win a record deal and pursue their goals in the music / entertainment industry.
  • Contestants will normally be given up to 3 minutes to perform their song at the auditions. Please edit your music to be approximately 3 minutes in length. The absolute longest we will allow someone to perform at the auditions is 3 minutes & :15 seconds.
  • At the auditions, we will not have time for “band” set ups. You will need to have your music in the form of an MP3 file that can be emailed to registration@iconoftheislands.com and the DJ will play your music from a computer. Please have a back up on a thumb drive or hard drive, just in case.
  • As we finalize the audition dates, you are more than welcome to sign up to receive an alert that will announce the details when they’re made final. Please select the island on which you would like to audition (St. Thomas, USVI) (St. Maarten) (Bahamas). Please submit your email and information.
  • Each performer will have to fill out and sign an appearance release form authorizing us to show their footage on the TV show.
