Just a heads up that the signup form is somewhat confusing! The signup form says this:

"If you are an individual, you must fill out the information for all three songs.
If you are a group, leave the Semi-final Song fields blank. Only fill out the Prelims and Finals Song fields."


but there are only spaces to write in 2 songs to begin with, and according to all of the other threads and rules there was nothing about semi-finals, so it's a little hard to understand.

okay, i'm having trouble submitting my entry....i keep getting:

"Entry failed. Please double-check your information and try againYou have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use"

so far as i can tell, i've got everything in correctly....so what's going on?

also, what does "(Check only if Karaoke version)" mean?  i'm providing my own karaoke tracks for my songs.....

EDIT: okay, i got it accepted....needed the album title to have a value (which was odd).  still curious about the check boxes since it wasn't clear what those were for...

I think the semi-finals thing is left over because this was copied from the AX sign ups and at AX there's a semi-final round (I figure this because once you submit the screen says "Thank you for your interest in the Anime Expo 2009 Karaoke Contest!."

There are only two songs in the contest- Preliminary and Finals.
I had to use an older version of the form due to a computer issue. The form has now been corrected- sorry for the confusion!

A couple of you signed up twice. Our policy is to keep the later entry.

Just wondering whether you are doing library song request like last year in this thread?

Hi! I signed up and I was just wondering, I recall reading somewhere that it is possible to change your song at the time of the competition. Is this still true? I miiight change my preliminary song, but I don't know if I should do that beforehand somehow or not...

you're allowed to change it when you check in. the easiest thing is to have a CD (i dont think they accept any other format).  as long as your song fits within the requirement for the karaoke contest, then you can use it

Starting this year, we will also accept USB flash drives for the contest.

I'll start a separate discussion, but due to the lead time needed to re-print our song books, it will be a shorter time cycle this year.

Hello, Hank.

I signed up and just realized I wrote my last name different from the badge name.  I got married this year and I have yet to change my last name.  Would you be able to edit it for me?  Please let me know.

Thank you

Hi there,

I signed up for the contest on Monday evening (the 12th) and I have yet to receive an email confirming my entry. Does this mean I was too late, or have confirmation emails not been sent out yet?

Thanks :)

I haven't received a confirmation email either, and I signed up on the first day.  I believe those have not yet been sent out. :D

Congratulations on getting married! Yes please send it to me by PM.

We don't send out email confirmations. A list of accepted entries will be posted tonight.

Note: we had a couple folks ask about "Let it Go" from Frozen. As a Disney song, this song is not allowed in the contest, but you are welcome to sign it in Open Mic.
