Locked by oz_helen (35388) on 2008-05-10 00:05:42 Contest over! Stay tuned for the results!

All you budding singers out there, here's your chance to shine!

This is the Second Annual DDN Karaoke Contest!

Contest closes at 11:59pm May 9th, 2008, DDN time.

You have just over a month to enter. This is to give enough time for people to select, rehearse and record a song.

What to do: Upload (or link to) video or audio footage of yourself singing karaoke. Audio files should contain an introduction with your DDN username.

There will be two major prizes awarded.

The winner of the Best Karaoke Singer will win a Premium Membership, a trophy and karma.
The winner of the Funniest Karaoke Singer will win a Premium Membership, a trophy and karma.
Runners up in each category will win ribbons and a surprise.

You may enter more than once. You may enter in both categories or have multiple entries in the one category.
Entries must have an accompaniment. Unaccompanied entries will be deemed ineligible for prizes.

Criteria:
The singers in the "Best" category will be judged on song choice*, accuracy, technique, interpretation and overall performance.
*Song choice is with regard to the appropriateness of the song for the singer.

The singers in the "Funniest" category will be judged on the laugh-o-meter, interpretation and overall performance. "Funniest" does not necessarily mean "Best intentionally bad performance". Humorous songs, satire and parody are all acceptable.

The judge's decision is final.

Last year's winners were AfterTheRain (Best) and GrubbleBubble (Funniest). You can enjoy the fabulous entries here: www.dance.net . . .

Who will take the prize in 2008?

I was just in charge of karaoke at a 90s party. If anyone wants a list of the songs I have PM me and I can hook you up with any that you want. Of course, they're all songs from the 90s. (Backstreet Boys, Nsync, Britney, other various 90s artists.)

E-star you need a backing track, but not necessarily a karaoke machine. On the First Annual contest thread, Panic linked to a website where you could acquire backing tracks.

Haha, you can jump me any time. I'm glad you like the song, and I hope I didn't butcher it too badly. I guess I should have mentioned that the song is "It's No Good" by Depeche Mode.

Here's the link to the site with all the free karaoke tracks

So anyways.

Yay, I can actually enter this one since I have a microphone now. I'm on vacation right now, but when I get back I know what I'll be doing. =]

Come on, SOMEONE needs to enter!! I want to, but not if the only other entry is from Panic.... :P

And I can only enter if I can find my ancient microphone..... somewhere out in the garage....

Well if everyone said that, then The Panis would most definitely be the only entry.

Don't be shy, people!

I'm entering as soon as I can find a song I like- my problem seems to be that all the songs I want to do are impossible to find. Might have to get the boy to play along with something.

Aw man. I was gonna enter for fun's sake, but I really cannot sing. And yeah, after listening to Panic...um yeah, no.

Besides no one else has entered! C'mon if someone else who sucks enters, then I'll embarrass myself too!

Well, good job panic! ;)

Awesome way to start out the contest, Panic.

I would like to enter but have yet to figure out how to record from my built in. I have Audacity, but it doesn't pick up things playing from my laptop very well. So bascially I sound like I have no music.

Any one have any suggestions? :)
