Where will it take place?
Room 313 in the Hynes convention center- Convention Saturday, from 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

In case you are wondering how this works.

The first five people who sign up with all the information needed are in.
(One carry over from last year)

There will be six additional slots available at the convention.
Just stop by the karaoke desk, we will have a sign-up sheet for the karaoke contest.
At convention sign-ups end Friday night, you will not be able to sign up on the day of the contest.


The Rules

1 The karaoke contest is not open karaoke.
It's a contest, stay in the room, please.

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

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