2. THE SWEEPSTAKES. 

a. Determining the Winners. Sponsors and/or their designees will review all eligible Entries for a correct answer and conformity to these Official Rules. Sponsors and/or their designees will choose at random one (1) potential winner (the “Potential Winner”) during each Part of the Sweepstakes from all correct and eligible Entries received during the immediately-concluded Part. The Potential Winners will be selected on or about October 16, 2013 for Part 1, October 23, 2013 for Part 2, October 30, 2013 for Part 3 and November 6, 2013 for Part 4. NO ENTRANT WILL BE DEEMED TO BE A WINNER, OR WILL BE AWARDED ANY PRIZE, UNLESS AND UNTIL SUCH ENTRANT'S ELIGIBILITY HAS BEEN VERIFIED BY SPONSOR IN ITS DISCRETION, ENTRANT HAS BEEN NOTIFIED THAT SUCH VERIFICATION IS COMPLETE, AND ENTRANT HAS COMPLIED WITH ANY SPONSOR REQUIREMENTS. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Sponsors reserve the right to select less than four (4) Potential Winners if there are no Entries that meet the Entry requirements as determined in Sponsors’ discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to not award any Prize if, in their absolute discretion, Sponsors do not receive a sufficient number of eligible and/or qualified Entries. Sponsors may contact the Potential Winners and require such Potential Winners to submit to a background check to help ensure that Potential Winners’ continued participation in the Sweepstakes will not, in Sponsors’ absolute discretion, damage the Sweepstakes or otherwise reflect adversely on the Sweepstakes Entities; require such Potential Winners to answer additional questions or participate in additional screening procedures; require such Potential Winners to sign consent forms, releases (including, without limitation, Sponsors’ Affidavit of Eligibility and a Liability/Publicity Release); and/or disqualify Potential Winners who are unable or unwilling to do or provide any of the foregoing (“Clearance Process”).

WITHOUT LIMITING THE FOREGOING AND ONLY IF APPLICABLE, ANY POTENTIAL WINNER WHO IS A MINOR IN HIS OR HER STATE OF RESIDENCE WILL BE REQUIRED TO HAVE HIS OR HER PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN AFFIRM IN WRITING SUCH POTENTIAL WINNER'S ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND AGREEMENT TO THE OFFICIAL RULES, IN ORDER TO CONTINUE TO PARTICIPATE IN THE SWEEPSTAKES. Return of any Prize notification as undeliverable will result in disqualification and selection of an alternate Potential Winner. If a Potential Winner does not reply to the notification within the time specified by Sponsors, is ineligible, or cannot or does not comply with the Official Rules, he/she will be disqualified, the Prize will be forfeited and an alternate Potential Winner may be selected at Sponsors’ sole discretion. Sponsors reserve the right to provide an independent third party (the "Auditing Entity") with any Entry submitted by such Potential Winner in order that such Auditing Entity may examine such Entry and confirm, subject to its and Sponsors’ discretion, that such Entry complies with these Official Rules. In the event that any Potential Winner elects to end his or her participation in the Sweepstakes, is unable to participate further in the Sweepstakes for any reason, or is, in Sponsors’ absolute discretion, deemed to be ineligible to participate, Sponsors reserve the right to select an alternate Potential Winner. Once the Potential Winner completes the Clearance Process, the Potential Winner will be named the winner (“Winner”). 

c. Prize. Prize for Winners (the "Prizes"): The Winners will each receive: (i) three (3) concert tickets to see Paramore (Approximate Retail Value [“ARV”] of $100.00); and (ii) passes to meet and greet Paramore at the concert (ARV $50.00).

IF ANY WINNER IS A MINOR IN HIS OR HER STATE OF RESIDENCE (IF APPLICABLE), THE PRIZE WILL BE AWARDED ON THE WINNER'S BEHALF TO THE WINNER’S PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN, WHO MUST EXECUTE ANY RELEASES AND OTHER DOCUMENTATION REQUIRED BY SPONSORS (INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION THE AFFIDAVIT OF ELIGIBILITY AND THE LIABILITY/PUBLICITY RELEASE DESCRIBED ABOVE). THE WINNER’S PARENT OR LEGAL GUARDIAN IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THE CONCERT AND MEET AND GREET WITH SUCH MINOR(S). Prize may not be endorsed, transferred or substituted, except at the Sponsors’ absolute discretion. Specifics of the Prize are in Sponsors’ absolute discretion. In the unlikely event that any portion of the Prize is cancelled, undeliverable, or unable to take place for any reason, Winner agrees that Sponsors have no further obligations to Winner other than delivery of the remainder of the Prize (if any), and no other additional compensation will be provided. In the event that any Winner (including, for any Winner who is a minor in his or her state of residence, his or her parent or guardian) is unable to comply with the terms and conditions set forth in these Official Rules (including without limitation this Section 2(c)), Sponsors reserve the right to deem such individual(s) ineligible and to select a new Winner (or Winners) from among the remaining Entrants at Sponsors’ sole discretion, time permitting.

August 29: Little Orphan Ed?

The "Don't" singer, Ed Sheeran, makes a special appearance on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" as the lovable orphan, Annie. Donning the famous red dress, and the equally famous red hair, we think Sheeran would make a great understudy. The best part though? His little dog friend, Sandy on that skateboard.
