That depends on the number of entrants. Say we have 20 competitors I can make two groups of 10 which means 9 songs for the group stage.

What’s the deadline for signing up and can someone point me to where the rules for this particular format are laid out? I’ve been Cup fallow for awhile.

I'm up forslagging everyone else's choices off voting, but not competing.

Competitors are split into groups depending on number of participants, say two groups of ten. Each group competes on a round robin (league table) basis, so if there are ten in the group, there are nine rounds and you need nine songs. In each round one of your songs goes up against the choice of one of the other competitors, and anyone who feels like it can vote for the one they like best. Two points for a win, one each for a tie. When the rounds are completed the top two or three in each group (best sorted before we start to avoid unpleasantness) go into another round robin final with new songs.
