When will the advanced sign ups for the karaoke contest happen?

The contest sign ups start March 18th!

Why?

To make things more fair, a lot of people don't check the forum boards till a week before a convention.
Besides this gives the contestants plenty of time to think of a song they want to preform.

How many people can sign up online?

Six people will be allowed sign up (when the thread opens) and waiting list spots will still be used.
Waiting list spots will only be used during online sign ups.

How many people can sign up on Fri of the convention?

Six additional people can sign up when the karaoke room opens on the 25th of March.

Hello! I'm wondering if there's a date/time already set for the karaoke contest, and if there are any guidelines or restrictions to people that want to sign up. Is this information available now, or will it be available along with the sign up sheet on 3/18? I'd like to join, but I have friends scheduling photoshoots as the day goes on, so I'd like to give them my availability in advance for that, if it's available!

Hi Akiran,

It will be happening on that Saturday, 5pm-7pm.

The guidelines/restrictions can be seen in the old thread here: viewtopic.php?f=11&t=18788

Thanks Cave! It's helpful that the contest will be run the same way and date/time as last year!

So if the Karaoke contest is 5-7 on Saturday... does this usually overlap with the Masquerade? I will be performing in the Masq and if I remember right they ask us to be in the room by 6pm!

Have there ever been people who do both? I did read the guidelines for last time which says entrants need to stay the whole time... which may answer my question but thought I'd ask just in case :)

I've missed out on this contest for years since I've consistently missed sign-ups again and again. D: I'm happy I stand a chance now that sign-ups are happening closer to the event, but would anyone happen to know what time on the 18th I should come back? And will it also be in this thread or a new thread?

I have my song picked out and I'm pumped! >_<

But speaking of which, is it also better to link songs through YouTube for now if available? I also have it available as an MP3 but I figured it's easier to share through YouTube!

The new thread will open at 12:00am on Friday. (apparently to build suspense)
We can also do both MP3 or Youtube for audio, whatever is easier for you.
That said if we have the mp3 before hand we can just add it to a contest Que.

So excited for this again!
Also I know this is a dumb question but CDs will be okay right? Also another Quick question; Will the order of the sign ups be the order of the performance or will be be randomized?

My iCal told me.... "Man it's your time, let's do this!"

I hope I would be on list this time... }=D

CDs are fiiine! A few people used them last year.
I'm planing on randomizing the order.

Oki thanks! I'm really relieved to know the order is going to be randomized this year!
