 Lip Sync Rules (PDF)

All Conference Event
6:30 - 9:00 pm

Join us for an evening of fun  and participating in the “Lip Sync Battle”.   There will be food, cash bar, music and priceless competition.  The evening is sponsored by the OLA Endowment.

Rules for lip sync competition:

  • Limit one song per act
  • Limit one act per library
  • No duplicate songs (so get your entry submitted early!)

Your entry should include your name and email, your library, and your song choice. Submit to Gail Currier at

A DJ will provide the music.

Participants will be judged on the following criteria:

Lip Sync Ability

The ability to mouth the words of a song, performed in perfect synchronization as it is reproduced on a recording, creating the illusion that the person or group is actually performing the song on stage in concert. Precise synchronization between the sound and the performer is critical. When a word or note is being sustained for a long period of time, the performer must exhibit, as part of his/her lip‐syncing skills, the same amount of tension or energy which it takes to actually sing the song. Spoken words should be recognized.


Originality of costume design and how well the costume, hair style and accessories match the look or actions of the original artist being recreated is paramount to the performance. The performer must use facial expressions, gestures and choreography which simulate the likeness of the original performer(s).

Audience Response

Stimulates audience response, i.e., applause. If all of the above criteria is done properly, the audience should be attentive to the performance and show their enthusiasm by their applause.
