iliah - You really have a knack for picking beautiful songs. I actually could hear your tone better on the original ones: taking the noise out distorted your pretty voice.

Poshoeda - If only your mic was of better quality. This one does no justice to your tone. Great top notes. Well done!

Heart - Gee that backing track for The Climb is really tricky at the beginning. Can totally understand why you had trouble with the timing. Someone Like You suited you better. Love the "pause" moment.

pasdebourretendu - You have such a great contemporary/country sound. Good job!

Ok. I can't believe I'm actually posting that. I think I'll really need a new identity after, but I said I would do it.

If you think I'm taking myself seriously here, you're crazeyy!

josy002 - I think that's the most effort anyone has ever put into an entry. Top notch stuff! I haven't heard the original but now I think I need to.

So there's three takes to this one, but trust me, it's worth it.

First of all, this has the best singing:

or here

But here is another take of it. If you don't want to watch again, skip to 4:14 for the weirdness:

or here/.

And the concluding chapter (ending with a fascinating discussion of where to get pizza):
WARNING: naughty language

or here/.


And yes I AM very obvious glancing at the camera all the time, thank you very much.


My singing is really bad today, the cold went into my chest, blahhh.

Whilst rearranging my room this weekend I found a different microphone, not quite sure where it came from but the sound quality from it is better than the mic on my webcam. Still not the best, but an improvement nonetheless.

Same song, better quality:

My computer is getting fixed as viruses made it crash, and the loaner computer I got doesn't have working speakers :( NOOO! I guess I'll compete next year. Good job everyone who's already posted!

Up To The Mountain
THIS is NOT a submission (singing with no music)
I sing this better without music and sing it often by myself around the house

I thought you'd get a kick out of having a video to see old smileywoman :D

Hi folks! Sorry I haven't given feedback for the last few entries - have been run off my feet.

Will give them a listen, post here, then close the thread and put on my judge's hat over the next few days.

Thanks for playing!

^^, ^, I was going to enter while my boy was away, because he hears enough of me singing without me recording five billion songs. However, he's also the techy one of this family and when he left, my computer died. I shall prepare for next year. Who knows, maybe by then I'll be brave enough to have my eye and then I can post a video of me singing.

In that case. I'll try to get boy out of the house for an hour today and see if I can't get at least ONE of my songs up for you. If not, I'll find time to do it in the future and post in under the 'singing' board: maybe I'll get some tips to improve upon for next year's contest.

OMG, if you extend it, it will make my day. I didn't get to enter due to a combination of losing my voice and being in the hospital that week, and I'm dying to do it!

Blah. This is why I almost always sing a cappella. I can't stand backing tracks, they're always too fast or too slow or blergh.

or here.
P.S. Any suggestions on better ways to deal with those pauses?? It was driving me CRAZY.

Slightly goofy America the Beautiful.

Yes, I know I squawked (damn, that's a hard word to spell!) on one of the "Americas" at the end. Also here.

Woop, I finally did it!

I look like hell and I'm losing my voice, but here is my version of "I Dreamed a Dream" from Les Miserables. Also, I figured out how to record straight to Youtube, because the last time I tried to enter this contest, my computer kept freezing. ANYWAY. Here ya go :)


"I Dreamed a Dream"


(yes, I did get slightly lost at the end, I'm used to the marching band arrangement of this ;) )


I have a few more songs I'm planning on doing later, if you guys can tolerate my voice that long, haha.

Sooo I'm a dorkus and a half? One more. That I recorded earlier but I don't know that I'll remember to get back on and post a re-record of it so heeere you go.

You can hardly hear the backing track for some reason, but it's there, I swear!!
