Once again, I was very impressed with the number and quality of entries. I had to listen to the entries many times over in order to make a decision. We have some very talented DDNers out there.
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 Claritin for her rendition of The Real Slim Shady. She did a fantastic job of getting through all the lyrics, which in Eminem's style, are not unlike a patter song. I particularly enjoyed the intentional "clean" version and the audible smile on her face. Yes, you could tell it was there, even though she didn't have the face to camera.

Claritin wins a Ribbon, flowers and a teddy bear.

First Prize is awarded to AmyJoJo for her cock-rock stylings in Here I Go Again. This was an example of total commitment in performance, plus it rated very highly on the laugh-o-meter! This girl can sing and entertain. A true performer in the making.

AmyJoJo wins a DDN Premium Membership, a Trophy, flowers, teddy bear and Karma.

In the Best Karaoke Performance category, as was the case last year, there were two prizes and two honorable mentions awarded. These four winners had entries of such a high standard that they all deserved prizes.

An Honorable mention goes to iliah for her beautiful rendition of Memory. She displayed great technical mastery of this difficult song. Iliah wins flowers and a teddy bear.

An Honorable mention goes to smileywoman for her beautiful version of Over the Rainbow. Her performance was truly honest and heartfelt and her pitch was spot on. It was a lovely and moving performance. Smileywoman wins flowers and a teddy bear.

Second Prize is awarded to Panic (for the second year in a row!) for his hot Depeche Mode track, It's No Good. He captured the style of the song so well and sang with conviction. His performance displayed both solid technique and performance flair. Well done!

Panic wins a Ribbon, flowers and a teddy bear.

First Prize is awarded to Reel for her excellent performance of Celine Dion's A Song For You. Reel chose a challenging song, but rose to the challenge and performed with a raw intensity in the vocal and a keen understanding of the emotional content of the song. Additionally, she showed strong musicality in her use of dynamics and tone colours. Reel made the song her own, not making the performance a carbon copy of Celine's, while retaining the accuracy of pitch and rhythm.

Reel wins a DDN Premium Membership, a Trophy, flowers, teddy bear and Karma.

Thank you again to ALL entrants. I'm so proud of you all! It was great to see so many people having fun with it. After all, that's what karaoke is about!

To those who didn't get their entries in on time or who weren't quite sure about entering, make sure you check back next year! This is an annual contest.

Congrats everyone!
Sadly, I can't listen to Reel's entry (as well as anyone else who used Rapidshare.come) it keeps saying I have to sign up or something.
It sounds like she totally rocked it though!

Good job, everyone. I might enter next year. :P

Bunni - there was a free download option as well as a premium paid download option on rapidshare. Did you see that?

Anyway, congratulations again to all the winners! Enjoy your prizes!

Reel and AmyJoJo, your premium membership certificates have now been transferred.
