As of this writing, there is one pre-reg spot remaining. I took out one more person from Livermore who didn't fill in their email.

Oh damn. Was that me? I think my friend signed both herself and I up 'cause I didn't have access to a computer, and maybe she didn't put in my email for my entry. @_@

What was the prelim song of that person, GaleWolf?

>_> Either way, looks like we'll be rushing over to the karaoke room ASAP...eheh....

Is there going to be a list of who's made it around here somewhere in the near future?

I had to change my prelim song when the rules were posted because I realized that the song I was practicing wouldn't cut off cleanly at all after the first chorus (it goes immediately into the next verse, no break at all).  It's a cool song, too, but I was too in love with my final one to change that.  Oh well, I do like the song I'm actually doing for prelim, and I can always sing the other one at open mic sometime.

Summary of Responses:

@KamijoIsLove:
I don't keep any of the ineligible entries, as they are deleted as soon as it's determined that they are not complete. So no idea what the song was for that one.

@Nazaki:
Open Mic will be going on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, except of course during the contests.

@Slimchance:
If it's from an anime or video game, it's okay. Otherwise, Enka is technically not "j-pop/j-rock". I'm sure though that Enka would be a great entry in the Gong Show :D

Time change requests:
Please hold these until I put out the contest order. I'll take time change requests then.

As a general note, we're holding the entire contest during the 7PM to 11PM block, so by 10PM we should be winding up the prelims and getting going on the Finals.

Hi Hank,

Will you, any chance in the near future, be changing the contest so it's split up between soloists and groups?  I know Fanime has grown a lot over the years and with how quickly this year's karaoke filled up, I'm hoping it will happen next year. Just a suggestion! I missed the sign-ups due to being sick, but I'll be there for at-con signups. Talk to you then ^^

Another quick question. I found the official karaoke version of the song I am performing. It has some back round vocals, as do many karaoke versions I've heard do. Is that ok?

Yes, background vocals in a karaoke version are okay.

Every entry received this year was for soloists, so we would need more groups. It seems to be tougher in general to get a large number of group entries, but we'll re-examine during the planning for next year!

So... can I change my finals songs, if I make it?

I want to do "Le Salle de Bain" by Shiina Ringo instead..

I don't think I'm horrible at Kiss my Goodbye, but, singing it in front of people would kill me.. I think I just want to do a song I am better familiar with.

But this song is in English, that's fine right?

grr.. still cant choose...
I like angela Aki so i want to do her songs,
but cant choose!!
"This Love" or "Kiss me good-bye".

This Love sounds better for me but the main part (that i sound good) is short, Kiss me good bye has longer main part.

...ahhh~
