hey, guys! I competed last year as well as my first time and made it to finals!  My story is...I decided to join the singing contest for fun since my friends pushed me to do so.  I thought I wouldn't make it to finals, so I didn't prepare a final song...but I ended up being a finalist, so I pulled the first song I knew from the karaoke list haha.  Make sure you pick all your songs, even if you think you might not make it to the finals, just like me haha

My history is:  I'm 20 years old studying Digital Media Art, Business, and currently working as an English tutor for Japanese international students and an application consultant for a Japanese start up company, Connectionpool.  I've been a frontman and guitarist for many bands, but I started a new band called, Minor SetbacK, where we write originals in Japanese.  We have so far performed with famous J-Rock/con bands, such as Phoenix Ash, The Stars at Dusk (aka Valkyrie Kiss), and akai Sky.  My influences are androp, ONE OK ROCK, Motohiro Hata, etc.

I am planning to compete again, cause I thought it'd be fun to do so again!  I hope seeing familiar and new faces next year! :)

BTW, do you know if Chi is coming this year?  If he is, don't let him miss sign ups this year.  Last year he forgot to sign up because he was gaming. XD  I died inside.  Chi needed to compete because he is awesome sauce.

he texted me sometime last week-ish asking me and i said that i probably was gonna
ill text him today or tmr reminding him that SIGN UPS ARE ON SUNDAYYYY!!
OHHHMAHHHGAWDDDD
lauren: ur signing up too right??

Yes ma'am! I talked to Chi two weeks ago and he wasn't sure about competing. You ladies should convince him. ;D

A friend of mine and I are thinking about entering.

"Go-On Wings" from Go-Onger would count as J-pop, right? D:

Also I would freaking love to sing the Gokaiger theme. T__T

Competing for the first time in...jeez, I think 3 years? I want to say 3. Been a while anyway, and now that I'm an old-ass woman I care less about how I do and more about having fun :)

Going to be doing Heart Gata Virus by AKB48 and Tiny Star by Moumoon.

Hi guys! I'm entering the main karaoke contest for the first time this year. Hopefully my submission is accepted. This is gonna be my third year coming to Fanime; I've been wanting to enter this contest in all the past years but I've never been able to come on the Friday the contest is held.

I have a quick question for any of you that have been in the contest in the past; if it comes to it, are we able to change our song choices during warm ups/sound check or are the songs we put on our submission set in stone? I've just submitted my form but I may want to change it later  :-[

I'll be competing this year, hopefully I can find something appropriate to wear. Be singing selections from Yamato 2199.

Also question:

Instead of a CD can we use a DVD instead? I can do visuals along with the music.

i dont believe they usually do visuals. there arent any projection screens except for the ones facing the stage because of the lyrics
so even if u have visuals, it wouldn't be used

Soooo jealous!  I would love to do AcousticKaraoke contest, but I have no band to sing with.  :B  Best of luck, guys! <33333  Sorry I have been so absent from the thread!  I had my graduate exam last week (to see if I get my MA in French, but I haven't gotten the results back yet), a French presentation the following day, a project write up due today, and I have a final and a pedagogical project to be done on Thursday.  After that I should be much more present in this thread.

Hey guys! I'm Aria. :')
This'll be my first year at Fanime and I'm signing up for the Karaoke contest. Well, I did.
I suppose we'll see if I actually made it on the list.

The songs I'm singing:
"Mikazuki" by Ayaka http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHw6W4BznTM
and "Let it Out" by Fukuhara Miho http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LSIHK94IFiM
if I make it to finals.
I'm still thinking about switching that last one, though. If not Let it Out then I'll probably be singing "Hanabi Sky" by Fukuhara Miho. And then, aside from those, I'll probably be in the Karaoke room singing a bunch of other songs.
I'm pretty nervous but usually that all goes away by the time I get on stage. Either way I'm stoked to sing, and to hear
everyone else sing! :D

I don't think our setup supports a video DVD. Will confirm with our Technical Crew.

I'm now considering trying for at-con sign ups, haha~

I usually feel like the Fanime contest (since it's a larger con and such) is too ~ serious business~ for someone like me who just wants to sing and have fun...but I might not actually care this year. I guess we'll see how I feel once I get there.

Should I go for it anyway? :) I don't know what I would sing... probably something out of left field like Bird of Paradise and then some random EGO-WRAPPIN' ballad if I make it to finals. (Go Gatsu no Clover? Do they have that song? Well, I'm pretty sure they have Whole World Happy and Sora no Lion, if not...not that any of these songs would show off my voice, but I doubt I'd make it to the finals, anyway!)

You should do it!  Karaoke is all about having fun.  Everyone competing really supports one another.  While it is a contest and it is semi-competitive, its a fun type of competitive.   Kind of like fighting games.  Lol!   ;D
