4FANZ® AudieNce1st™ Performer Rating System

1. There are millions of singers. Some are awesome, some are very good;some sound terrible and hesitate to sing. Some think they are good but audience don't like their singing. It is almost impossible to self-judge without bias. Hence, we needed a rating agency and rating system. So, The 4FANZ® Performer Rating System is the very first one to bring awesome performing talents to public domain by a rating system. The rating system is called 4FANZ® AudieNce1st™ and this is the very first one to define the rating system.

2. This is an Open System where any one can rate own performance by checking certain boxes.

3. Level-4 Singers/Performers are recommended for Personal or community events to entertaining guests or fans in big banquet halls or 5-star hotels.

4. Level-5 Singers/Performers are recommended for Concerts in Performing Art Theaters, Movies, Web Series and Albums

5. 4FANZ® AudieNce1st™ rating standard is a combination of good singing/performing and discipline. This standard is implemented in all 4FANZ® websites. e.g. A very good singer/performerm who is still singing in Smule and Starmaker would not be considered for a level-4 or level5 performance.

6. A Professional Singer or Concert Level Singer is expected to have own Home Studio and Recoding System to record with appropriate mixer settings to project vocals or dialogs as needed in the song. Instead of recording professionally, most good singers record using Smule or Starmaker. The 4FANZ® AudieNce1st™ Live Singing PLatform strongly discourages usage of Virtual Singing Platforms who enhance vocals using Software Methods.

7. There are good accomplished playback singers in Smule Platform to create their Fan base. We acknowledge that. But their names also won't be part of our listing because of violation of the 4FANZ® AudieNce1st™ priniples.

8. This is an Open Rating Standard and eventually will be displayed at AudieNce1st website by end of 2022 or Mid 2023. So, all singers/dancers/performers got up to 1 year to correct course and apply to be listed in the AudieNce1st.com website by answering a simple form and sharing their public performances.

9. If you are planning to join the Level5School, you will be asked the questions here for your records. Based on your self-apprisal, the local group leaders or mentors will determine your current singing level.

10. Without a performance rating system, the artists are blind about their relative position among peers.

11. Usually friends hesitate to tell artists about their true performance. So, most do self-apprisal without benchmark..

12. Level5School provides an opportunity to artists to self-evaluate in Benchmark Sessions and improve levels
