The Melissa Etheridge Cruise Soundcheck
How It Works
The Top 10 semi-finalists will be voted on by guests booked on The Melissa Etheridge Cruise, as well as your fans, to determine the Top 5 acts. Voting will take place in mid-December and will be hosted here on this page. Our booked guest votes will be weighted during the first round decisions, regardless of the overall total number of voters.
The Top 5 acts will be narrowed down to 3 Soundcheck winners by our booked guests in early January.

Friday, January 4th (on or around): 5 finalists, chosen by your fans and our booked guests, will be notified and move to the next round of voting where booked guests will select the final 3 winners.
