The judges rate each act according to the following criteria
• Technical ability – how well they play their instruments or sing
• Innovation & originality – song writing skills – are they doing something new and exciting within their genre or are they too much of a sound-a-like?
• Stage Presence – How do they command the stage – do they captivate the audience or do they look like they’d rather be in the crowd?
• The Strawberry Factor – have they got that undefined something that will help them to make a sustainable career out of music and would they go down well at Strawberry Fair?
