KARAOKE CONTEST 2018 - Online Sign ups Closed

Post by otakuforlife »

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?
Room 313 in the Hynes convention center- Saturday, March 31 at 5pm-7pm

In case you are wondering how this all works.

At 6:00 AM EST on FEB 28th 2018, the sign-ups will begin!

The first six people who sign up with all the information needed are in.
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.

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.

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!

You lucky 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:


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 the convention

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 until two days before the convention then it's locked in.

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

The Six
Lexi
Rune Star
Ei
Jay-Shay
Saffie
Hero Killer Stain

Waiting List
Mary

IF YOU WANT TO JOIN BUT DIDN'T GET A CHANCE, STOP BY FRIDAY FOR THOSE LAST 6 SPOTS

No, because the song existed previous to the anime and was included as part of the soundtrack.
For example, the endings of Jo Jo's Bizare Adventure (several series) used previously existing western songs and
those would break normal karaoke guidelines.

If I sign up as a duet and my partner backs out before the con, can I change to a solo? Or vice versa?

Yes.
However, you must let me know before the end of convention Friday (at the latest) since I will be working on the ballots for that Saturday.

Perfectly okay, however, the audience and judges will be carefully comparing each contestant on the level of skill etc.
In a completely even match it being in English vs not could be a deciding factor.

The version you want to sing, we just want to make sure that we have a copy.
Though it's recommended you bring one as a back up just in case.

I know this is...incredibly last minute, but my voice still hasn't fully recovered from being sick so I need to do a lower song, haha.

Song: Outer Science
Artist: Jin ft. IA
Song Running Time: 3:32
Song Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=12osrAS1bBE

I'm not singing it in English, but I liked that this video had the original PV with the subs, so since there's a screen people can see the meaning.
