That is correct. Our group maintains the same song eligibility criteria across both events.

If I sing Simple and Clean by Utada in English, can I sing one chorus and bridge in Japanese (like Donald Sings Simple and Clean), or does my whole performance have to be in one language?

Since I lost access to a CD burner can I bring my songs on a USB thumb stick?

Yes you may! We prefer USB thumb drives to CDs. :)

This is an interesting case. As long as the lyrics are the official ones, I'll determine that it would be ok to mix them in this way.

Since I always need to be certain, I'd like to know if my songs are eligible.

I'm using this fan instrumental of Kaze ni Naru, but with the lead guitar part taken out. It sounds a lot like the original but I'm unclear if fan songs are okay.
Fan version: https://youtu.be/Jsd0z2M_HIg
Original song: https://youtu.be/NwoDrRCibhA

My second song is kind of a similar situation, it's not the original because I just couldn't find an official instrumental. Instead it's one of those karaoke knock-off versions with an electronic instrument that plays along with the melody.

I have the same question as Sygmus above.

Here's the original version of Simple and Clean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0xbO5LAnjc
And here's the fan instrumental I'd prefer to use: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vMMbqhztqgY

I can sing to any version of the song, I just like that fan version. If I can use the fan version, I'll bring it on a USB drive. If not I'll just use the instrumental in your karaoke database because there isn't an official instrumental that I can find to download.

I just have a question? idk if this is where i ask this but since it has to do with karaoke :D
Was wondering about the open mic since you have a list of songs that we could choose from would there be a chance to ask to add a song to your list?

Hi! I am new to the karaoke activities at fanime this year and wanted to clarify if my song preference of "Kimi no Kioku" [https://youtu.be/sKddkLqoWLY] from the video game Persona 3 qualifies as an anime song (as well as video game song) if there was a series of anime movies for Persona 3? I would so cut this song to fit the 5 min limit i see in the rules. My other prelim song is also from a video game so I need an "anime song". Thanks!

Planning on doing Acoustikaraoke for the first time ever. What gear is provided for guitarists? I have a single 12" amp that has built in FXs. If the house provides gear, I'll bring my pedals instead.

Is there a list of gear provided?

Also, how many songs are we allowed to perform? I have 3 anime songs, if that's not too much. :D

For acoustikaraoke, are there amps provided? Or do contestants usually bring their own? Or no amp and play through room acoustics? Asking for acoustic guitar

Hi all,

We are generally unable to bring music equipment in or out of the Convention Center. Acoustikaraoke is a purely "bring your own gear" show, although we can plug line in to our existing soundboard if you bring long enough cables. We generally just adjust the microphones in the room to suit acoustic instruments. Think of it as an open mic stage with no backline, but a few power outlets. The on-the-fly vibe is a very important element of the contest. =)

Hope this answers your questions!

Generally, we would happily take that request in this thread, but this year we have delayed our annual song-adding push a little bit due to external factors. However, please feel free to bring the song if it is not in our database! =)

What is the song you're hoping to have?

This will meet the eligibility requirements for our purposes. :)
