Wow! What a fantastic amount of entries this year! While there was one very clear winner, the rest of the decisions were quite difficult to make. Kudos to everyone who entered. You've all done me proud! Congratulations!

Firstly, honorable mentions go to Smileywoman and Heart for the sheer amount of entries they submitted between them.

Smileywoman and Heart each win a bottle of Jacob's Creek Chardonnay (excellent Australian wine).

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

Second Prize is awarded to Megan for her glass-in-hand rendition of Poker Face. I was impressed that Megan managed to not only get through the song without spilling a drop, but also sound pretty darn good while under the influence of a nice drop of red.

Megan wins a Ribbon, flowers and a Margaret River Shiraz (excellent Australian wine).

First Prize is awarded to josy002 for the hilarious and amazing "video clip" karaoke performance of the Ding Dong Song. I don't think I've ever seen anything like it and I don't think I ever will again. Brilliant!

josy002 wins a DDN Premium Membership, a trophy, flowers, Moet champagne and Karma.

In the Best Karaoke Performance category, there were two prizes awarded. These two winners were very difficult to separate.

Second Prize is awarded to iliah for the exquisite Painted Heart. The song was perfectly suited to iliah's lovely clear vocal tone. Gorgeous!

iliah wins a Ribbon, flowers and a Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon (excellent Australian wine).

First Prize is awarded to pasdebourretendu for her great performance of Use Somebody. This song was sung with ease and excellent style. The voice was energised and there was light and shade in the rendition. Fabulous!

pasdebourretendu wins a DDN Premium Membership, a trophy, flowers, Bollinger champagne and Karma.

Thank you again to ALL entrants for taking part and well done! I'm so proud of you all! It was fantastic to see so many of you throw caution to the wind and give it a go. Karaoke is supposed to be fun and I hope you all had as much fun creating your entries as I did listening to them.

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.

Helen
