Edited by panic (116436) on 2013-10-27 03:26:17 forgot to add the end date!

It's that time of year! By now, you know the drill. Sing something pretty or sing something funny and then shoot us a link in this thread. I will bestow awards for best performance AND for funniest performance. Plus, everyone who enters will get some well-deserved karma from yours truly.

Contest ends November 15.

Here's a link to the 2012 DDN Karaoke Contest

Don't be a douche. Sing.

Hey, I'm super excited for this! Do we have to sing with a karaoke backing track or can we sing a cappella as well?

Well, until now, the rules required a backing track. But if you want to record something acapella, I say go for it.

Awesome, AlwaysOnStage! That song has been stuck in my brain for the past two weeks for no good reason. Now I'll never get it out of my head. SUPER-great job though. The bar has been set, ladies and germs. And it's a pretty high bar! But remember the goal is just to have fun so don't be intimidated.

OMG, I just realized I said the competition ends Nov 15. Crap, I meant Dec 15. I haven't even had time to record anything yet, and I know how everyone looks forward to my recordings every year. Right? Right? Right?

^That was amazing.

OK, I have a song picked out, but I haven't had time to record it. I'm going to leave this contest open until after the new year because I have done a TERRIBLE job of promoting it. And I think we should move next year's contest to June or July instead of during the holiday season. Thoughts?

Seconded. I always start preparing stuff right before October because I know it's coming, and then October hits and it's Busy-busy-busy-busy forever.

June or July. Definitely! And Panic, you owe me a Dr. Horrible duet! Here's the question... do I get to be Dr. Horrible or Penny?

Wow, I've neglected this contest like nobody's business. And I didn't even record an entry this year. That makes me sad. :( I have ALWAYS entered the DDN karaoke contest. And most of the time, I either won it or everyone agreed that I SHOULD HAVE won it. I think we all agree this contest needs to be moved to June instead of December. And my goal is to put together a committee (of past contest winners maybe?) to officiate. Oz_helen did SUCH a great job of running this contest for so many years, I want to make sure it continues.

OK, but since we only had two entries this year, I can't really pick a winner. Both entries were AMAZING. So LeSoulierVert, I'm buying you a premium DDN membership. Congratulations. You have a beautiful voice.

And AlwaysOnStage, you're already a premium member, so we'll have to work something out. I owe you ten bucks. I loved your song too. I'll send you a PM, and we'll work something out.

So this year's karaoke contest sucked, but it was 100% my fault. I totally dropped the ball. We're going to fix these problems, and we're going to start fresh in a few months. Thanks to everyone who participated.

Interesting. AlwaysOnStage has blocked me so I can't send her a private message. I was going to mail her a gift certificate, but now I guess I won't bother. Congratulations anyway, AlwaysOnStage. And enjoy your premium membership, LeSoulierVert.
