I was very impressed with the number and quality of entries. In fact, it was very difficult to make a decision. We have some very talented DDNers out there.
Firstly, congratulations to everyone who entered. It took a lot of guts to put yourselves out there. I hope you had fun. I know I did!

And now to the winners!

In the Funniest Karaoke Performance category, there were two prizes awarded.

Second Prize is awarded to CheesePlusCake for her rendition of the Prom song! Her performance was borderline psychotic, which was totally appropriate for the song and the dance moves added an extra layer of entertainment!

CheesePlusCake wins a Ribbon, Flowers and Karma.

First Prize is awarded to GrubbleBubble for her humorous take on Oops I Did it Again! This one went so high on the laugh-o-meter that I nearly wet my pants! I really appreciated the juxtaposition of Grubble's innocent voice with the dirty lyrics.

GrubbleBubble wins a DDN email account, a Trophy, Flowers and Karma.

In the Best Karaoke Performance category, there were two prizes and two honorable mentions awarded. These four winners were very close and I needed to listen to them over a few times to make my final decision.

An Honorable mention goes to dancing4joy for her hot rendition of Fever. She really captured the spirit of the song in her interpretation. Dancing4joy wins Flowers and Karma.

An Honorable mention goes to pasdebourretendu for her fabulous country song Wild One. Pasde impressed me with her country twang. She's got it goin' on! Pasde wins Flowers and Karma.

Second Prize is awarded to Panic for his Morrisey rendition. Panic's smooth vocal and impeccable mic technique, accompanied by cheesy karaoke dance moves showed us what karaoke is all about: singing up a storm, but not taking yourself too seriously!

Panic wins a Ribbon, Flowers and Karma.

First Prize is awarded to AfterTheRain for her delightful performance of Nora Jones' Don't Know Why. ATR's song choice was outstanding. This song suited her pure tone perfectly and she sang it with sweet, understated confidence. Her pitch was faultless and the wistful spirit of the song was fully realised.

AfterTheRain wins a Name Change Certificate, a Trophy, Flowers and Karma.

oh my gosh, i really won?
you had to of heard me wooing.
because just when i thought i used up all my woos on your performance helen (which i did), i pulled some more out of my back pocket (the right one if were paying attention to details).

when the contest first opened i only hoped that i would get around to participating. when i first came around with before he cheats, i never thought id get to hear pasdes rendition of it. choosing a second song was mainly because singing the first one and having entered it as an actual entry with my name tagging along with it made me woo. and because i wooed, i knew i had to come back for another.

helen, thanks for exposing ddn to such a great contest, it was really a lot of fun and very wooable.

id like to reassure all the other winners and karaokers that i did woo for you through out your performance and after seeing the karaoke contest thread form crossed out.
but i didnt even have to mention that im sure you heard me wooing. :)

it was a ton of fun and very wooable.
i really appericate the win, but i know you can tell by my wooing (that has yet to stop).

^That's because you look so good in the dress, Panic! ;)

I've transfered the certificates now.
Maybe next year I might have to dip into the back pocket to fund a premium membership for the winner.
