Locked by oz_helen (35388) on 2009-05-22 03:25:40 Contest over! Stay tuned for the results!

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

This is the Third Annual DDN Karaoke Contest!

Contest closes at 11:59pm May 15th, 2009, DDN time.
New closing time: 11:59pm May 21st, 2009, 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.

To see some of the fabulous performances from previous years, see the 2007 Contest or 2008 Contest.

Who will take the prize in 2009?

Sorry I am full of questions tonight. Last one. If it is a duet can you just sing both parts? Will that count?

You can sing both parts if you want, though it might make things tricky, depending on the song. Go look at the previous entries to get an idea.

I had so much fun participating in this contest in '07! Then in '08 I kind of chickened out because I just couldn't find the *perfect* song. But this year, I've found something that I LOVE!

This is one of my favorite ddn events, Helen. I'm so glad you are doing it again and I'm looking forward to the enjoyment of everyone's entries.

Is singing a duet with another ddn member allowed?

EStar - you planning a duet with your sister? I have no problems with two DDN members joining forces. After all, PokeyStar, DeStijl and I all joined forces for Hope&Love's dance contest the other year.

Glad to see lots of interest, now for the entries to roll in. If I get time, I might even post one myself (not that I would be eligible for any prizes).

Good point, SunshinePointe, I can't even think of starting to record mine until Panic posts his entry. And if he doesn't get in first my whole little universe might be thrown into disarray.

PANIC! Hurry up! :P

OK, I'm first again. But I have to warn yous, I'm sick so I kinda sound like a frog. And my sound card is dying so the vocals are really noisy. But I'm first. Go me.

Here's my entry from last year. It was about 1000 times better than the new one. If I figure out what's going on with my sound card, maybe I'll try it again.

Ooh, and PLEASE post something! I've been longing to hear you sing for quite some time now. =)
