All types of music and musical instruments are accepted but the songs performed must be from the UK. Contestants can record their performance and upload their videos onto the Music Is GREAT Event page. The embassy will check the videos before their uploads based on four criteria – melody, vocal performance, arrangement and potential. Voting is open from now until midnight of September 27.
