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, April 20th at 5pm-7pm

In case you are wondering how this all works.

At 6:00 AM EST on April 4th 2019, 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 six 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.

A reminder that joining as a group does not add to your odds of winning and you get the same number of prizes.

We usually run against Masq timewise so that won't be possible.
Though the official times for that event aren't up yet.

Would English language Vocaloid songs be allowed (examples: "Lie" by Megurine Luka, "Smoke and Mirrors" by Cyber Diva)? Also would dubbed anime songs be allowed (example: the original Pokemon theme song, "Carry On" from Sailor Moon)?

Vocaloid songs are okay, as long as they are originally Vocaloid songs.
Meaning not vocaloids singing already established western songs.

Yes, dub anime songs are fine but I imagine the audience and voters will set a high bar for such a well-known songs.

Morning everyone! Thanks for waking up enough to submit.
We really enjoy your performances year after year.
