In case you are wondering how this all works.

The first 6 people who sign up with all the information needed are in.
There will be 6 additional slots available at the convention.
Just stop by the karaoke desk, we will have sign up sheets for the karaoke contest.

You need to know these things:

1 The karaoke contest is not open karaoke.
It's a contest, stay in the room, please.
Don't make us hunt you down.

2 This is rated by audience ballot voting, any cheating will not be taken lightly.

3 All contestant music will be provided on MP3, other playable format or compatible with a 3.5 jack.

4 Any musical equipment a contestant brings, the contestant is responsible for.
But will be considered awesome.

5 All songs will be under 6 minutes.

6 Duets are allowed but only one prize will be awarded to the pair.

FAQ

Do we allow lyrics?
Nope, no lyrics on that stage.

Do we allow non-karaoke versions of songs?
Yes! Non-karaoke versions are okay but people will judge accordingly.

Can we make a karaoke version for you?
No! The audio filters used to do that will make the track sound terrible.
(we can lower the music a lot and turn up your audio)

Why the online waiting list?
To cover anyone who drops out before the covention

Random order this year?
Yes, sign up order makes no difference.

Again no pre-screening?!
Yup.. Worked fine last time.

Can I sing anything?
The restrictions are JPOP,KPOP,Anime and Game Music (Within Reason)
Has to be pg-13 or less content wise as well.

Can I change my song?
You can change your song till two days before the convention then it's locked in.

Can I walk into the audience?
Our Mics are wireless for a reason.

Due to the Karaoke contest being a centerpiece of the department we would like to be more tight on the song selections.
So I'm going to say no on Fallout music.

We are loosing the reins a bit on fan parody and games for open karaoke but we still won't let you do those R-rated Parody pieces.
