  • Round 2 - The finalists' songs will be displayed on to be critiqued by KCCM member songwriters. A songwriter that has submitted a song will not be able to participate in the critiques in the month of their submission. The top song will go to round 3.

  • Round 3 - All finalists are put on a compilation and sent to participating judges in the industry.

The public then votes for their favorites and decides the winner for that month, which in this case is September. Say Joe wins September. Well, he then goes on the compilation along with the rest of the monthly winners to the industry judges around the country. They decide the winner of the Song of the Year.
