Jaola Williams 🇺🇸

Jaola Williams’ performance of Ariana Grande’s Moonlight maybe just haunt you while you sleep. Her voice climbs so effortlessly as she hit those high notes in perfect harmony. Williams brings the soul this week and her passion may just earn her a Golden Ticket.

Dian Rene 🇺🇸

Dian Rene… like Chris Black, does a lot with a little. Crafting an incredible a capella rendition of Mi Gente, Dian performs EVERY part, flawlessly piecing together separate videos into one. this process can be meticulous, but clearly Dian’s got the passion. He even makes it look easy with his calm, cool, collected performance. Can his charm make him a Megastar?

Megastar_CJ_heat E contest highlight.png
 

CJ 🇺🇸

A talent like CJ’s is undeniable. Performing his own original etudes on a grand piano, CJ’s speed and precision will dazzle you. His fingers dance across the whole span of the keys and the music soars toward an passionate, epic finish. Who said classical music was dead?

 

 
Megastar_ChrisBlack_heat E contest highlight.png
 

Chris Black 🇦🇺   

Chris Black… proves that you don’t need much to make an impression when you’ve got the passion. With nothing more than a mic, a few simple chords, and a voice to stop you in your tracks, Chris manages to give Sam Smith a run for his money, or at least Megastar’s. :P

 
Megastar_HassaniHamadi_heat E contest highlight.png
 

Hassan Hamadi 🇺🇸

It’s only fitting that Hassan Hamadi’s video goes sideways 30 seconds in -- his performance spins heads. Whether right side up, upside down, sideways and otherwise, Hamadi effortlessly backflips, twists, and rolls across the stage you’ll wonder how he’s not already famous with all that passion.

Jeb Corliss Q&A

Jeb Corliss Q&A

Most Interesting Wing Suit Pilot in the World

Jeb Corliss has joined the Megastar Team as a Judge and Mentor. Who is this guy?

Well, he jumps off buildings. 🏢 And bridges. And mountaintops. And airplanes. 🛩 And into Superbowl Sunday arenas. And flies in a wing suit allowing him to control his flight incredibly tightly.

So what does he do then? He decides to take it one step further and become an extreme proximity flier (meaning he flies as close to really big and really high things as possible at incredible speeds). You know this because he pops the balloon attached to that rock! Yes! (Yikes! 😱)

What he does is scary but thrilling to watch. And we’re sure, it’s scary but thrilling to do.

Jeb Corliss-Megastar-01.png

This is his art. This is his passion. And we sat down with him to find out how he does it, and how he feels about other artists and their passions.

Megastar-YouTube-Profile-Pic.jpg

Jeb, you are perhaps most famous for the "Grinding the Crack" performance. 😱(FANS, you have got to see this.) Was that when you knew you made it?

 
JEB-2.gif

The Grinding the Crack jump was done for a special on ABC’s 20/20 called Super Humans. I did a series of jumps for the program and when the project was complete I honestly didn’t think about it again. It was just another of almost 50 jumps I had done at that location. I thought the footage was cool but moved on to my next project.

Within 3 days of posting it got over 3 million views. I was actually a bit shocked. It’s now at over 32 million.

But I guess you are really asking if there was a single moment when I knew I had made it. I don’t think I have ever thought of things in those terms. I have had such a strong burning passion for human flight that just being able to do it was making it for me. As long as I was doing it I was making it every single time. From the moment I started jumping I was happy and had an overwhelming sense of being complete.

HELI_HANGING.gif
 
Megastar-YouTube-Profile-Pic.jpg

You risk your life every time you make a jump. You say you're not an adrenaline junkie. Really? 🤔If it's not the rush, what motivates you?

 
JEB-2.gif

My motivation has changed over the years. Why I did it when I was 20 was different from why I did it when I was 30 which is different than why I do it now at 40. It has changed and evolved as I have.

In the beginning I was trying to figure out who I was and what I was capable of. It was a personal test to really learn about myself. In my 30s it became about the show, the process. Could I get the permits to do it legally and tell a compelling story? I was trying to make the productions as big and elaborate as possible.

Now I know who I am and what I am capable of. I know I can get the permits and do the massive live shows. I have found peace. I am calm and no longer feel the need to prove things to myself or anyone else. I have become happy to just be alive. I feel I can now help others on their journey to self realization.  

 
Megastar-YouTube-Profile-Pic.jpg

Why did you choose to be a judge for Megastar? ⭐

 
JEB-2.gif

It’s time for me to give back. I have been very fortunate in my life and I have seen things many people wouldn’t believe. Now I want to help others see them too. I want to help inspire people to follow their passion. Megastar can help me do this.

FLYING THRU TREES.gif
 
Megastar-YouTube-Profile-Pic.jpg

What is the most important message you want to send to Megastar Performers? ⭐🙌 

 
JEB-2.gif

Make sure you are doing this for the right reasons. Make sure this is truly what you are passionate about. If this is a true passion for you, never give up. Never stop. You must be willing to sacrifice everything. I had to be willing to die for my passion and I truly hope you are willing to make sacrifices for yours. Because then, success is guaranteed…

 
Megastar-YouTube-Profile-Pic.jpg

Besides winning the grand prize, 💰🙌💸what is your hope for Megastar winners?

 
JEB-2.gif

I hope it makes them happy and pushes them closer to realizing their dreams. Being able to earn a living from doing what you love is the life goal of most people. Megastar puts you on that path…

That's The Ticket!

That's The Ticket!

🎼I’ve Got a Golden Ticket🎶

Now, now, everybody calm down! It’s obvious what you’re all thinking…

“What’s a Golden Ticket??” “It’s shiny! I want one!” “Is there chocolate??”

200w_d (1).gif

In order: (1) Read below, (2) it is shiny, and you might get one, (3) we do not have the technology to teleport chocolate through our app yet, but we are consulting with Willy Wonka about said innovation.

Caption: We’re frightened by the thought of this guy being able to teleport through your phone 😳

Caption: We’re frightened by the thought of this guy being able to teleport through your phone 😳

ANYWAY...

There’s not much you can do to earn a Golden Ticket save for being irresistibly talented, but in the case that you are and one of our judges picks you, then you will automatically advance to the… 👏WORLD 👏 WIDE 👏 COMPETITION!!!

In the Finals, your chance to win will multiply exponentially as there will only be a thousand performers — maybe fewer! — competing to be the world’s next Megastar!

But, like, way more chill 😬

But, like, way more chill 😬

Golden tickets ensure that Performers entered in the Auditions phase will advance to the Finals, or that Performers in Finals Rounds 1 and 2 will advance to the next (Rounds 2 and 3, respectively). It’s our way of saving any talent that may have been overlooked (accidentally of course) by the Fans during the voting process. That said, once we get to Round 3, there will be no more Golden Tickets, making it totally up to Fans!

Golden Ticket winners are announced for every Heat after the Judges’ Review phase (...oh...so that’s what that is) and once voting reopens mid-week. Watch for the schedule in the app in your time zone.

The coolest thing about the Golden Tickets? They will all be selected by our special panel of judges, including Usher! 😍😲 Stay tuned for more news, as we will be announcing more judges sooooooon. (Next week!)  😉

Speaking of Usher, he’d like to give you a lowdown on what he’ll be looking for in selecting Golden Ticket Winners:

So, don’t let anybody tell you to write yourself off. The Golden Ticket is your opportunity to take a chance, make the leap, to put yourself out there, because, who knows? While the world might miss it, the judges are always looking. 👀 👌

Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat D_Ruby Woo.png
 

RubyWoo 🇺🇸

Ruby is aptly named because her voice will make you go, “Woo!” This starlet comes from California by way of Atlanta, Georgia, which makes sense because she seems sweet as peach 🍑 and her voice is smooth and crisp (makes us hungry for avocado toast)! Ruby is very active, so be sure to follow her on Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to find out when her next performance is!

Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat D_oZealous.png
 

oZealous 🇺🇸

Hailing from Michigan, oZealous, aka Cody Vizcarra, proves his beatboxing skills are oMazing! This guy already has a significant following and it’s no wonder: his social media channels are bursting with positive vibes and spit beats… sorry sick beats. 😜💦  Keep an eye (more like an ear) out for this one, and check out oZealous’ Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram to find out what happens when Cody dresses up like an old man and wanders the streets.

Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat D_Luke Gardner.png
 

LukeG 🇺🇸

We promise this video has not been sped up – LukeG (Luke Gardner) is really that fast! This guitar shredder from Kentucky comes dangerously close to summoning the forces of darkness to melt your face off with his “Original Heathens Improvised Solo” video. 😱

 
Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat D_Jibrizy Magic.png
 

JIBRIZYMAGIC 🇺🇸

In case you still have your face after watching Luke Gardner’s video, hold onto your jaw because Jibrizy from Chicago, IL is gonna make it drop. From his piercing eyes, 👀 to charismatic performance, Jibrizy will captivate and confound you with his impressive card tricks. Jibrizy’s social media channels already have a substantial following but will his fans make him our first Megastar?

Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat D_Lisa Lottie.png
 

LisaL 🇦🇺   

It’s fitting that the first thing you see in Lisa Lottie’s video is a her tattoo of shooting star. 💫 Lisa could very easily be our next Megastar with hula hoop talent like her’s. The level of athleticism, control, and determination that Lisa has mastered is incredible. It’s this type of dedication that can make a world of difference for any kind of success. From down under, this Aussie may just rise to the top!

Amp Your Fanbase with Megastar!

 

Here’s How:

Your Social Media Handles: Make a decision who you are and what you want to be called. Then call yourself that across ALL your channels. You want Megastar Fans who want to find you to find you. Yah?
 

Tip 2 – Persistency

PERSISTENCY.gif

Talk to your fans. Even if you don’t know what to say. Be their BFFs. Post photos. Post your innermost thoughts. Livestream. Tell them where you’re performing. Get them to vote for you. You can do this. And you should. Persistently.

 

Tip 3 – Connectivity

CONNETIVITY.gif

People like real people. So get them to feel you. Tell them your backstory. Make them care. You’re worthy of their care. Make them like you for more than just your incredible talent.
 

 

Tip 4 – Tag-icity

Tip 5 – Simplicity

Play To Win

Play To Win

Performers, there’s a lot that goes into being a Megastar.

Fortunately for you, Megastar provides an unprecedented platform for launching your career and building your following –– and don’t forget, the winner of the grand finale will also get $1,000,000! 💵

It’s gonna take more than submitting your videos and waiting to see what happens. You’re gonna have to…

PLAY TO WIN!

Livestreaming is one of your best tools for gaining fans. We’ve covered some of it in our previous blog, MEGASTAR APP FEATURES, but let’s take a deeper dive into some of the fun ways to connect with your audience, gain fans, and how Fans can play along the way.

PERFORMING LIVE

Anybody can shoot 🎥 and edit ✂🎞  a video to make yourself look like prodigy, but the real test of talent is performing live!

Ahhhhh...... Luk at tu! Luk at tu! 

Ahhhhh...... Luk at tu! Luk at tu! 

This should earn some street(/app)-cred that’ll go a long way to setting yourself apart from the rest - like a lone wolf 🐺, but instead, a LIVE wolf!

Speaking of wolves, being a leader requires…

Marshalling Your Troops

Your following is like a wolf pack, and you gotta be the alpha.

Squad Goals

Squad Goals

 

Come right out and tell your fans how they can support you:

  • Ask for follows – If people are watching you, they’re interested; so tell them to follow you. Followers will be notified whenever you go live and can more easily keep track of you throughout the competition. 💪
  • Ask for shares – You’re good enough, you’re smart enough, and goldarn it, people like you! So ask your fans to share your videos. 🎥 🙌 Megastar isn’t just about winning $1M; it’s about building your fan base you take with you beyond the competition.
  • Ask for gifts (Crowdfunding) – Fans can purchase in-app gifts 🎁 to send you that you can redeem for cold hard cash. Start crowdfunding here … without Kickstarter.

Personalizing Your Personality

Fans want to know about you and they want to engage with you… not that kind of engage. 💍 (Disclaimer: We advise against accepting any marriage proposals via the app, but keep an eye out for our spin off app, Match-a-star! 👰😜)

Use livestreaming to tell your fans more about you and what else you’ve got going on.

  • Tell your story – Fans want to know who you are and where you’re headed. Be open about your struggles and triumphs. Let people know if you’re performing soon or releasing more content and where they can find it. 👀
  • Take requests – Ask your fans for a challenge, or answer questions they ask you.
  • Answer all comments – People comment to connect. Do your best to reply to everyone giving you a shout out. Fans want to know that their support means something to you.
  • Take it beyond the app – Invite people to connect with you on your other social media channels. Megastar is the gateway for fans to find your Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat channels. And your channels should help folks find you on Megastar!

Connecting with Fans is undeniably FANtastic (we all saw that coming 🙄😜), but we know that a successful performance career is as much about building a fanbase as it is about…

Making Connections

Performers can’t exist in a vacuum. They get by on connecting with each other and sharing opportunities. While, yes, it is indeed a competition, good artists always support good artists.

  • Follow other performers and support them – Cross-pollination of audiences is a great incentive to build good relationships with other Performers. Who knows: maybe a “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch yours” scenario could lead to collaborating with a newly-minted millionaire down the line. Play the long game!
  • Maximize your social media presence – Use every platform you have to spread the word and get your current fans to download the Megastar app and vote. Connect with other performers on all their social media sites. You’ll find new audiences and expose your own fans to exciting new talent – they’ll love you for it!

This is an exciting time! Megastar is the world’s first talent competition held in the palm of your hand! Jump in and see the global phenomenon that’s the wave of the future.

LICENSED TO BE A MEGASTAR

LICENSED TO BE A MEGASTAR

LICENSED TO BE A MEGASTAR

Welcome Megastars, Fans, and Newcomers!

To all you stars and starlets looking to make it big, have you found yourself scouring YouTube for inspiration, and saw an enticing video only to click on it and see this:

face-palm.png

Well, Megastar doesn’t want this to happen to your videos, and to be certain it doesn’t, we’ve got you covered!

So, let’s get down to the nitty-gritty stuff. If you’re a musician looking to be the next worldwide Megastar, or you intend to use music in the background of your insane skating video, you’re gonna need to know about licensing.

Fun fact: James Bond has a license to kill, so be careful if you ever run into Daniel Craig.

Those looks could kill.

Those looks could kill.

Anyway, back to licensing: licensed songs allow Megastar to promote your videos without any messy lawsuits from wealthy superstars or big entertainment agencies. Unfortunately, artists and studios, depending on who actually own the materials, have to agree to let you use their intellectual property.

(A song like “Despacito” is in fact intellectual property, regardless of its intellectual value. (Ha-ha!!))

Don’t need to know Bieber’s intellectual properties to enjoy that sick beat!

Don’t need to know Bieber’s intellectual properties to enjoy that sick beat!

So, to make this a bit easier to navigate, the Megastar app has licensed some songs officially for you to use. A bunch of them.

Here you can find a list of all the songs available to cover or include in your video submissions.

Don’t be afraid to personalize your performance of one of the songs on the list. Maybe you want to make a medley out of several songs. Going from Sia’s “Chandelier,” to Keith Urban’s “You Gonna Fly,” and ending on Slipknot’s “Psychosocial” is not only a brilliant way to show your range, it’s also the great way to appeal to multiple audiences at once!

Oh, please let this medley happen! 🤘

Oh, please let this medley happen! 🤘

Of course, you are welcome to perform your own originals; in fact, we want to hear them! (Side note: it’d be wise to copyright your songs with the Library of Congress, and properly register your original recordings with BMI or ASCAP so somebody doesn’t steal them, and then you can make money licensing them out to organizations like Megastar. 👍)

Still, your submission doesn’t have to be an original. Covers can actually be quite original! BUT BUT BUT there is one important caveat for all music lyrics (sampled, covered, or original)...while we appreciate the artistic expression and have even licensed songs for use that include explicit lyrics, VIDEO SUBMISSIONS WITH EXPLICIT LANGUAGE WILL BE DISQUALIFIED. Not to be a buzzkill, but Megastar is playing to a worldwide audience, and discretion is the better part of valor. 👌😉

Now that you have a license to kill, to absolutely slay, Performers: start performing! And Fans: Start…fanning?... Does that sound right? Either way, download the Megastar app and behold a world of talent today!

HOW TO MEGASTAR

What Can The App Do?

For all you Megastars and Mega-fans who want to make a Megastar or be a Megastar, you know it takes attention to detail and focus to come up with greatness. So we’re sure you’ve got some questions:

  • Are there ways I can connect with my favorite Performers on the app?
  • How can I build relationships with my fans?
  • What’s the meaning of life?

Our answers, in short:

  • Yes
  • Livestreaming
  • Puppies

To answer in...long(?): read ahead!

COMMENT ON PERFORMER VIDEOS

FANS, it’s super easy to connect with your favorite Performers on the app. When viewing any performer video submissions, you’ll see the option at the bottom of the screen to leave a comment. This is a great way to send encouragement and feedback to Performers!

COMMENT ON PERFORMER VIDEOS 1.png
COMMENT ON PERFORMER VIDEOS 2.png
MS_COMMENTING.gif

You could simply tell them you love their performance. Or maybe somehow you just know they’d kill it singing a T.Swift song, but as a polka! 😃 You can post emojis and purchase stickers to post on their feed, encourage them to enter more videos; better yet, to livestream (it’s like having your own personal concert at home - more on that later). They’ll love you for it. And everyone likes love.

“I love Polka!”

“I love Polka!”

FANS — SHARE PERFORMER AUDITION VIDEOS

If you really want to show your appreciation, there’s nothing better than sharing your favorite Performers videos on your social media channels. Let your peeps know your latest discovery! You’ll find a convenient purple share button directly below all submission videos. We love button-pushers!! Top Tip, sharing this way takes people directly to this audition video. 

⚪ → 🔘 = 🤤

MS_SHARING.gif

Aside from voting, sharing Performer videos is the best way to ensure your favorites gain fans for their chance to become a Megastar. Speaking of voting...

VOTING

FANS AND PERFORMERS — Absolutely do not forget to vote! If you love a Performer (or another Performer), give them your vote. They’ll need it if they’re going to make it to the top. You can only vote for the same performer once a day, and there will be diehard fans taking/making the time to support their favorites. So go crazy with your enthusiasm. Vote every day! 

An aside: Think about this. Vote for someone and they get into the main event. In the main event, only 1,000 compete for $1 million. That’s much better odds than any lottery. And will turn some struggling artist into a, well, comfortable artist.

You’ll find the vote button (more buttons... 🤤) directly below and to the left of all video entries.

VOTING .png
VOTING 1.png
VOTING 2.png

PERFORMERS, if you’re gonna earn votes, you’re gonna need Fans, and if you’re gonna earn Fans you’re gonna need to build relationships with them which is why you ought to embrace...

LIVE STREAMING

PERFORMERS should feel free to jump on the app anytime, and engage with any Fans ready to watch. Fans receive push notifications whenever any one of the Performers they follow goes live. 

PERFORMERS can live stream by clicking the live stream icon (but, let’s call it button, okay?) on the menu bar at the bottom of your screen.

Picture1.png

On average, performers who live stream do 4 times better than those that do not. It seriously works! So sing for us. Talk to us about your art. Perform a trick live. Your fans want to get to know you. And some people who are not your fans may just become fans.

FANS can shout out to performers, ask them questions, get to know them. Live. It’s connection. Direct. Real. Do it!

LIVE STREAMING 1.png
MS_LIVESTREAM.gif

Who knows? If your Fans really love your streams, they can send you...

FAN GIFTS!!!

This is how FANS can provide Performers with more than just votes and promotional support –– it’s crowdfunding, baby! 🤑 True support that goes directly to individual performers to further their craft. It’s love! And everybody likes love.

FAN GIFTS!!! 1.png
FAN GIFTS!!! 2.png
FAN GIFTS!!! 4.png

FANS can purchase in-app coins to buy Performers gifts. You’ll find the option to buy gifts for a Performer on their profile page. PERFORMERS can then cash out to support themselves as they aspire to develop their craft, and/or witchcraft.

Don’t forget Megastar has a Magic category for Performers 😉

Don’t forget Megastar has a Magic category for Performers 😉

And FANS, if a Performer effectively casts a spell, just be sure to...

FOLLOW YOUR FAVORITE PERFORMERS

FANS, you can follow your favorite artists and performers by clicking the Follow button (omg, so many buttons 🤤😍🔘!!!) located in their bio or under their video submission.

What FOMO? Don't miss a thing!

Each week Megastar selects a few stand out Performers to feature in the weekly Highlight Reel. 🙌 

 
Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat C_Bradley C
 

Bradley C 🇺🇸 drops bars on the streets of New York like he invented Mumble Rap... and from the sound of it, he just might have.

His flow and lyrics are the real deal, but listen real closely or you might just miss it.

 
Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat C_CHMBRS.png
 

CHMBRS 🇦🇺 has a haunting sound that draws you in like a moth to the flame.

Aimee Chambers, an Australian singer-songwriter based in Melbourne performs a stunning version of Mad World that may (ironically) help you regain your sanity with her vocals’ meditative, nuanced quality.

Instagram | Facebook | Twitter

 
Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat C_Ronnie H.png
 

Ronnie H 🇺🇸 sings like an angel, even when she’s busy taking care of her daughters so it only seems fitting to acknowledge that she knows about working hard. Even as an on-duty mom, she still managed to make time to film herself in a beautiful performance, and her kids add some impromptu backup vocals –– young Megastars in the making?

Ronnie, you didn’t make it this week, but we’re giving you a shout out. Loved your voice. And your kids! We want you to enter again!

 
Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat C_Aaron W.png
 

Aaron W 🇺🇸 from down south in Georgia is a dancer with mind-blowingly smooth and sharp moves that cut like a knife in his slick video submission “The Weekend that never showed up.”

Fortunately for us, Aaron did show up, and he brought his A-game.

 
Megastar_Highlight Reel_Heat C_Sterling Walker VI.png
 

Sterling Walker IV 🇺🇸 is a pro tricking, back flipping, butt kicking stunt performer and entertainer operating out of Nevada. 

Sterling’s specialty is serving up consecutive standing back flips off one leg and then launching into a mid air double corkscrew into the splits, that’ll make you say, “Whaaaaaaaa’?!?”

HOW TO MAKE A VIDEO LIKE A MEGASTAR

HOW TO MAKE A VIDEO
LIKE A MEGASTAR

Check out comedian and viral Vine star Jay Walker explain how to make an audition video like a Megastar 👆. 

Tell Me More!

So, you wanna be a Megastar? Fortunately, there’s an app for that! Megastar is the world’s first global talent competition held entirely on your smartphone. The future is now!! The future was yesterday too when you think about it. 🤔 … Whoa. 😳

Anyway, now that the future is here, it means that for the first time ever you could win $1,000,000 🤑 and gain international fame  with nothing more than your incomparable talent and a smartphone! 📱 Just download the Megastar App, register, and upload a video submission today!

Sounds easy, yah? After all, anybody can film themselves in front of a computer or with a mobile device and record audio with a built-in microphone. Plenty of people have gone viral that way.  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Check out this guy (whhhhhhh — that was a sigh of exasperation):

Gives new meaning to the words “All Star.” 😂

You got to work hard to win hard (that should be a lyric!).

Seriously, 😶 the most successful internet stars know that to gain a following, you have to put a little effort into making your videos look good. Check this out: 🙃

Otama-what? 🙃

It’s pretty straight-forward stuff, but if you’re not video-savvy, we’re here to help! 🎥👌

 

Tip 1 – Can’t See What You Can’t See 🙈

MS17_JayWalker_Social_Visual-Lighting-Framing.jpg

Be in frame.

Studies show people love being able to see what they’re looking at. It’s Science! ⚗😯  So, be sure to frame yourself so people can see you and what it is you’re doing.

Light yourself.

While you’re at it, they won’t be able to see what you’re doing if you’re not lit. (Not that kinda lit, I mean lit! 💡) Using natural daylight or even positioning a lamp in front of you will go a long way towards helping your audience enjoy watching you.

 

TIP 2 – Bad Sound Sounds Bad 🔊😖

MS17-JayWalker-2.jpg

Use a good mic.

Hearing things helps people enjoy them! (Duh.) Even if you’re not a musician, having good sound draws people into a great video. Using an industry-standard microphone is less of a strain on your audience’s sensitive ears. (Ears have feelings too, y’know! 👂😢)

Record in a quiet place.

It’s also a good idea to record yourself someplace where distracting noises won’t be heard. For example, while the acoustics might make your voice sound amazing, a public restroom is the last place you want to record yourself. 🚫💩

 

TIP 3 – Titles & Thumb(sUp)nails 👍

Your thumbnail is your first impression.

If you want people to watch your video, make an alluring thumbnail. No, not like a manicure. A thumbnail is the little preview image on your video. Make sure it’s a good one so people wanna click on it!

Insert descriptive title here.

Also, having a descriptive and exciting title does wonders for drawing people’s attention. ALL CAPS CAN GO A LONG WAY TO DRAWING PEOPLE’S INTEREST TOO!!! 😁😉

 

TIP 4 – Be Brief (or, don’t take too long to say something that you could say quickly in a shorter amount of time.😜)

It’s the age of the internet and people’s attention spans are...IS THAT A BUTTERFLY??! ... 😃😊😅  tiny these days. Figure they’ll watch the first thirty seconds of your video so cut to the chase and show ‘em the goods. If it’s great they may watch more and vote.

Fans will be choosing the next Megastar! It’s up to you to create the best content to earn their votes.

Oh, and even if you’re not a Performer, download the app to see what all the fuss is about. Vote for the best videos 🎥,. Share your favorites. Give the Performers pointers. And change the way the world discovers and promotes new talent!

Last thought for Performers out there: connect with your followers through the app. If you have your own tips and tricks that you think others can benefit from, start mentoring and livestreaming now to your fans. It’s a great way to build a following and connect with your audience to become the next Megastar! 🌟

Introducing: SketchShe in the Megastar Theme Song

Introducing: SketchShe in the Megastar Theme Song

Introducing Megastar’s global hosts, YouTube sensations, and Australian comedians SketchShe. 

With a total social reach of more than 3.4 million followers, SketchShe are ready to guide future megastars through the star-making process.

At work at home in a car, Be A Star

SketchShe’s Australian allure is irresistible, 😍 and their comedic timing, impeccable. 😆 They’ve garnered over 100,000,000 views on YouTube, were featured on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and have traveled the world entertaining audiences.

Be A Star_SalonScene.gif

It all started with their booyah cover of Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. (Catch a bit of it in their Mime Through Time video. Lo tech. Phone camera on the dashboard. Car stereo playing the song. Twenty million views. Wowza!)

Check it. Pitch perfect. Of course, they’re just miming!💫

And now they’re starring in Megastar’s new music video, “Be a Star!” (*Record scratch*) But wait, how did that happen?

As viral stars who grew and curated their brand, SketchShe will guide Megastar Fans and Performers through the competition as the global hosts.

Using their signature car lip sync style, Megastar commissioned a theme song. Five singer-songwriters were chosen to write a theme song that SketchShe could perform. Enter “Be a Star,” by Russell Angelico (@versatillia).

With lyrics like “Be a girl who swallows swords / While surfing on an ironing board” it was pretty obvious they couldn’t go wrong. 😜

Download the app, and start voting for the world’s next Megastar, or better yet, upload your video submission for the chance to win $1,000,000!!! 💰

About SketchShe:

SketchShe are female driven comedy group from Australia with a passion for music, characters and being the voice of REAL modern 20 something women! Not only limited to their in-car lip sync viral videos, Shae-Lee, Lana, and Madison have a penchant for sketch comedy and have their own web series, Traffic Jam.  

Megastar asked Lana of SketchShe to share some of their backstory. This is what she told us: 

"I (Lana) met Shae in 2013 when we were doing a week long promo job in Sydney for the opening of Topshop!

Our hot summer days consisted of riding around on bikes giving out store vouchers, and trust us, those seats were not built for longer than a 10 minute joy ride! At the time I was working as a Presenter and Shae as a Producer, and although we both enjoyed our lines of work, we were frustrated with the nature of the creative industries and having to wait for opportunities. So we decided to make them ourselves in the form of sketches (which in the beginning, were pretty terrible, let’s be honest!). 

Mads came onto our radar a year later and as soon as we were hit with her combo of beauty, bogan and quick wit, knew she would fit in fabulously. We all shot together during our free time and on weekends and, after a year, created a sketch show pilot intended for television! We then branched out to the rest of the world via Youtube and Facebook to boost our numbers and grow a fanbase.

Four months into our online life, our first viral hit, ‘Bohemian Carsody’ was born and then the world knew the name, SketchShe!"
