ULTRA SPOOKY KARAOKE CONTEST THREAD (One space on waiting)

Post by otakuforlife » Sun Mar 31, 2013 11:03 pm

The spirits are restless..
The horrifying sounds from a small room will fill the air once more.
It's time for the ten to gather and one will rule.
IT'S KARAOKE CONTEST TIME!!


LAST YEAR was amazing and we had some unforgettable performances.
You don't believe me?? Look up videos form last years contest on YouTube they
may still be up. This year we are cranking it up another notch to 6.66. There maybe a
real trophy this year.. Dum Dum Duuuum. We learned a lot about how you guys
want the contest to go and we're going to ask a bit more of everyone involved.
Speaking of involvement! If someone has a good video camera and tripod. I will make a space
for you to record the whole contest for us. I think we all want a clean, non phone video
version of the contest.

In case your wondering how this all works
The next 5 people who sign up here with all the information we need are in..
People who sign up after those 5 are on the online waiting list. This in case someone drops out
of contest. Now the second batch of people, another 5 will be signed up on Friday at the
convention. Just stop by the desk we will have sign up sheets for the karaoke contest and
karaoke shuffle available. Why do we add them on Friday? Not everyone is forum savvy :)
You can change your song, however after MAY 17th you cannot change it again.

You need to know these things.
1 This is the karaoke contest not open karaoke. If your in the contest stay in the room.
2 This is rated by audience ballot voting, any cheating will not be taken lightly.
3 Music that is hard to get etc. Should be sent to us so we have it ready for you.
4 Any musical equipment you bring your responsible for.
5 There is no rule five
6 All songs will be under 6 minutes
7 Duets are allowed but only one prize.

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

You lucky first five 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)
Personal Email:



This Years Judging:
Real printed ballots!!
Also our staffer votes count for three each (18 in total) there by weighing out popularity.

FAQ

Do we allow lyrics?
Yes! Lyrics are okay but people will judge accordingly.

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 wants to drop out before the convention.

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

Just so people are aware. The instruments section is in case you'll be bringing
something portable to play with your performance.

Wow big response this year... The waiting list is now full!
People who are in the top 5 slots.. If your not going to be available send me
a message of some kind or post in this thread ASAP. There are a lot of people who
want to be in. Reminder that this is the big event for karaoke and people in
the audience tend to film it. People on the waiting list do not worry if you can't
get in. There is always the chance of signing up on Friday to be in the five
non-reserved spots. There have been some great performances that have
come from people who knew nothing about this thread and I would hate to
be unfair to them. I want to thank all the people signing up.. Nothing makes a
contest better then people who really want to be there :)

Just a reminder that the waiting list here is ONLY for the online sign-ups, it's not for the contest itself. If you still want to try and get into the contest, try and drop by asap on Friday after we open. The list fills up fast as there are only 10 spots! There will also be a waiting list at the convention which we have had to use, so you may still get in.

Or you can sign up for our other contest, karaoke shuffle, in which you sing a completely random song!

I'm hoping to make it in time to sign up at the convention. In case the sign up at the convention is them searching for the track and getting it for you, would I be able to link it here, knowing full well that I will not be registered for the contest until I actually sign up, so I can make sure I have a specific track? I've practiced with this version and it sounds the best. Just want to be prepared! Agh, wish I knew about this thread beforehand.

EDIT: Okay, never mind that. I'll just make sure I have it on my mp3 player. Sorry for the unnecessary post!

Sorry, yes, it's too late. This was the contest for 2013. I'm fairly certain we will be having a contest for 2014, so continue to watch this forum for details as we get closer to con.
