The screening jury was charged with the daunting task of whittling down over 150 candidates (each having submitted three videos) to just 24 live round competitors. Any juror having a familial relationship or a current or former teaching/professional relationship with an applicant was requested to declare the relationship and abstained from voting on that particular applicant’s performances.
