You could trend by getting curated by other curation groups like @curie for example. The judges look for entertainment value which, of course, is very subjective and varies over time.

Serena has slowly but surely become one of my favorite songwriters of all time and I'm not exaggerating when I say that. I can't help but to connect with her songs at a deep emotional level, they never cease to leave me vulnerable after listening, I just can't keep my composure. - @meno
I love it when music tells a story and you have done that so beautifully here today, it really is a next level song hun - I can see the film clip that goes with it, but I can see this working in film as well.
This song is the epitome of perfection, the structure is absolutely as it should be - any changes to tempo would destroy the tension you create throughout the music. - @krystle
You won 40 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.
Lilly’s classic musical and theatrical training really resonates here. I mean WOW – her lullaby, “How Loved You Are” is a masterpiece for the ages! Lilly’s performance and composition truly sound like it came straight from Broadway! I love this! What an immense treasure this is… - @passion-ground
Lilly is so talented it's almost annoying. She never misses, I mean, has she missed? Since her first entry, every single time she puts out a song on this blockchain I'm always captivated by her.... always. - @meno
There is something about your music and voice that I just find captivating, there is a clarity to your tone that I just find divine - it's always so clear and perfect, just stunning in every way possible. - @krystle
You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.
Not only did Addie crush this cover – but she did so looking smokin’ hot as ever! Bottom line: Addie is a true artistic talent, she also happens to be blessed with physical beauty as well. What a killer combination! God bless you, girlfriend. Stay hungry, stay grounded, and stay passionate… I loved this! - @passion-ground
Seriously fucking brilliant lovely, just a kick ass performance all round - but as always for me it's your stunning vocals that steal the show. - @krystle
You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.
This is not a simple song to perform, and you ladies did amazing. I was blown away by the vocal talent of the performance. The fact that you switched back and forth for the lead was a special touch too, and of course the blend of the harmonies was top notch. - @meno
What a brilliant entry guys massive congratulations, just got my attention and held it throughout - you have a great dynamic and I love the sound with the dual vocals.
The playing is perfect and really filled the sound out nicely, balanced well with the vocals and all round sounding brilliant.
Now for the vocals you both did amazing, I really like how you split it up and each bought your own subtle differences to the performance - you both have rather amazing vocal ranges, not to mention precision control.
It was a brilliant entry and I absolutely enjoyed it, the subtle changes you've made from the original really made it work well for the two of you - I should also mention I really loved the harmonies, it really added a nice additional layer to the sound. - @krystle
You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.
*Katrina’s performance is exactly what I needed this week! She broke from her comfort zone and rendered an original composition of optimism and self-worth. “Back to Myself” is a place we all need to visit on a regular basis. The important distinction that Katrina imparts is that her basic tendency is to be compassionate – and putting other people first. We have an overabundance of narcissists in this crazy world of ours, and her message here is directed toward all the good people in this world – and to give them, along with herself, the immense credit that they so rightly deserve. I love this to pieces – I see you, girlfriend! * - @passion-ground
I'm a sucker for original songs, and I love digging deep into lyrics, so of course, this song had to be on my list for the week. Katrina is such a talented musician, I wonder if she knows how talented she is. In any case I'm glad she is brave enough to share these vulnerable tunes with us. - @meno
