The magic will fill the stage once more..
The people will gather from near and far.
For one shot at karaoke glory!

Where will it take place?
The Hilton - Convention Saturday 5pm-7pm

(Yes, we are in the Hilton this year)

So let's start those sign ups!

In case your wondering how this all works.
The next 6 people who sign up here with all the information we need 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, if your in the 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.

8 This is a public performance people tend to tape it.

9. No lyrics on stage.

10. HAVE FUN!! Show some movement!

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

You lucky first six posters need to include all of the following:
Name (Stage Name):
Song :
Artist:
Song Running Time (UNDER SIX MINS):
Instruments (if any):
Song Link (if hard to get)


This Years Judging:
Printed ballots!

Reminder our staff votes count for three each.

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 Tuesday.

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

Bigger Trophy?
Yes.. We picked out something special :)

Can I sing anything?
The restrictions are JPOP,KPOP,Anime,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 Tues then it's locked in.

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

The signups so far:
1 Inari
2 Evilynn
3 Selestyl
4 Cara
5 Yonahime
6 Akiran

The Waiting List*:
1 Ei
2 Zhu
3 Magiko Chan

*Waiting list is online only. If someone does not drop out from this thread before the convention, you will have to sign up again at the convention

Hey guys!

You are all seriously amazing. You filled up all the contest slots in less than ten minutes!!

Please check your position on the list and make sure to read these important points:

Karaoke is in the Hilton this year!

Yes, our location has changed to the first floor of the Hilton. Brian and I haven't personally seen the space yet, but we are very excited about this change.

If you are on the waiting list, it is ONLINE ONLY!

The waiting list is NOT for the contest itself, it is ONLY for online sign ups in case someone drops out from THIS THREAD before convention. If someone does not drop out, YOU WILL HAVE TO SIGN-UP AGAIN AT THE CONVENTION.

There is a second chance to sign up at the convention!

Sign ups at the convention start at 11am on Friday - the moment the doors to the karaoke room open. At-con sign ups go almost as fast as this thread, so we recommend arriving at 11am if you are very set on participating.

If you have any questions, just let us know. You can PM myself or Brian (otakuforlife).

Happy to see the random order implemented.

Sorry if I missed it, but is the requirement for the song to be mostly/entirely in Japanese gone?
