The results of Hooping Idol 5: Pop Music Week are in and Hooping.org would like to congratulate all of our contenders moving on to the next round – and we have nothing but love for each and every one of those who are making their departure from the competition. Who will be leaving us following Pop Music Week and who will be moving forward in our quest to find the next great hooper star? It’s time to find out.
Hooping.org’s own Philo Hagen is your host for the Hooping Idol 5: Pop Music Week Results Show. With huge thanks to all of our contestants whose journey ends here, thank you so much for being a part of our fifth exciting season. We’d also like to thank our esteemed judges, our incredible prize sponsors for their amazing generosity, and a really big thank you to each and every one of you for tuning in. Thanks for being a part of Hooping Idol. Here’s Philo:

What’s next for the eight contenders that are continuing on? While their skills and creativity have allowed each of them to make it this far, it’s time for them to really develop a good story for us too. With Science Fiction Week anything is possible, and we’re expecting the unexpected. Think outside the box. Put calls out for support if you need it. Let your imaginations run wild. Spin up a hooping tale like none we’ve seen before.
Here’s what our remaining contenders must do: 1) Choose a Science Fiction Week soundtrack. 2) Claim that song via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If the song you’ve selected has already been claimed by another hooper, you will be notified of the need to choose again. 3) Read Hooping.org’s Ten Easy Ways to Improve Your Hooping Video one more time. During Pop Music Week we shouldn’t be seeing heads cut off in shots, shaky camera work, anything being filmed in portrait, bad lighting – all of that and more are covered so read it again and soak it up. 4) Create your next Hooping Idol video inspired by our theme for the week – Science Fiction! 5) Post your video on YouTube and Vimeo on or before Sunday, May 3rd, at 11:59pm PST. Be aware that videos do take time to upload so don’t wait until the last minute. 6) Copy your YouTube and your Vimeo video link urls and email them to email@example.com. That’s it!
Have fun Hooping Idol contenders, but remember to make it count. At the end of Pop Music Week three more of you will be heading home. Happy hooping everybody!
