Karaoke contest sign-up for '08/Audition?
« on: May 01, 2008, 09:31:08 am »
Hey...

Ok, so a few questions.

When can we sign up for the karaoke contests for '08? I'm familiar with how the contests are run and everything, so I'm going to do my best and shoot for the Idol contest this year.

As for the audition, if there is a preference for the judges:

Can we sing our song choice with an instrumental during the audition, even though we'll only have about 2 min?

Do we sing the tv-sized version with vocals?

Which is more preferred if we are trying out for Japanese Idol? Instrumental till time runs out, or tv-sized with vocals?

Thanks a lot,

Karaoke signup will start June 1st.

As for auditions if you are going for Idol you have to have a track without the lead vocal in it.  It can have backup.  If your music has lead vocal in it you will automatically be pushed to the Hybrid contest because it's hard to listen to your voice when there is another vocal over it.

Okay, one more little question.

Will you be allowed to sign up for both idol and the other contest as well? I've never tried for both and I was just curious if it's allowed how that's decided. Do you try out for both?

From what I've been to in the past, you are either put into the Idol or the Hybrid contest. You can choose which contest you want to try out for, or you can let the judges pick for you which contest they think will be best for your voice style/ability.

You're cosplaying Rage? Sugoi, I may just pull out my infamous Shuichi costume for that one. :)

Well I've seen people sign up for both contests in the past. That's why I was wondering...

I've just always been in the idol contest... well... once they started dividing it. The first two years it was just one big contest, parodies and normal songs all in one.

It's funny to think back to that first con, and the little tiny contest. XD

Idol. XD I've been in every contest since K-con started.

But I kind of want to do something silly as well... I don't know if you can be both contests... I just hope no one else chooses the song I want. XD It's happened before.

I'm probably going to do either:

-"Planetarium" by Ai Otsuka, for those of you who have seen the first live action drama season of Hana Yori Dango, it's the insert song.

Or

-"Yakusoku wa Iranai (No Need to Promise)" Yes, you all guessed it, Maaya Sakamoto's infamous song from the opening of the Escaflowne series. (not movie)

Probably going to go to Yakusoku wa Iranai....since I already have it memorized....

From my understanding of the karaoke contest is that you can be in both Idol and Hybrid. In 2006, I was registered for both, but had to drop out of the Hybrid because my parter lost interest in our group.

For this year, I hope to perform in Idol, and my friend wants me to sing Koharu Kusumi's Balalaika (Second opening to Kirarin Revolution) or something by Ayumi Hamasaki. XD

Ps: I love Yakusoku wa Iranai. Do you need the instrumental for it?

Nope, I got the instrumental from it, courtesy of gendou.com  , thanks though!

I have a few other songs in mind, but I guess we'll see. It also depends on which cosplay I get done in time.....>.<;;

I can never get the karaoke versions for my songs. I always have to remove them or vocal dampen them.... I guess that's what I get for picking obscure things. U_U;

Uh...This will be my first Kumoricon also... ^_^

Also, It's June 4th and they haven't put anything up, but the cosplay contest looks intersting...I might do it.
I guess if I'm brave enough I'll sing some anime song that I've memorized XD

Well it depends really. If you have a particular range you sing in, you should start looking for songs in that range. It also helps to narrow things down by picking something from a show or artist you like. :3 That's the best way to start.  Sometimes if you're lucky a song you like can fit any range as well.

XD

Okay, so you and me are on the same page then... I know what it's like to have an adjustable range and have way too many songs I like. When I'm trying to narrow it down, I get out my music and flip through them. See what I pass over right away and what I kind of listen to for a minute. More often than not, I end up settling on a song that I stopped on for a bit. I like all my music, but when I try to think of what I'd want to sing, certain things stand out more than others.

^ It's glorious that you're karaoking Gackt... he is a beast ;) I love both of those songs with a fiery passion, so  can't choose just one  ??? . Why don't you just do eeny meeny miny moe?  :)

I think I'll do this, probably "Hare Hare Yukai" since I'm already memorizing the song as I intensely practice the dance. I was late to the Haruhi party so now I'm on an extreme binge for it   :D If not that though, some other TMoHS song would work. But, if I sang "Hare Hare Yukai" I'd have another excuse to pimp my dancing skillz, so I'll probably stick with that  ;D

Try this site: www.gendou.com

They're great for anime music and such, and they have a lot of instrumentals/karaoke versions and such.

^ I know exactly what you mean!
I'm going to attempt to sing Balalaika by Kusumi Koharu.
Stage fright has been with me since I started singing in the karaoke, but I've done it. The more you perform, the easier it gets. And (normally) everyone there is really friendly and supportive.

Help!!! I've been looking around madly for a copy of the ending version of 1000 Words in any sort of karaoke type, but I can't find one. Any one have any leads or any copies? I need some practice without Koda Kumi singing in my ear, lol. Thanks!!!!

Coolness.

I'm probably going to sing Yasashii Yoake by See-Saw from .hack/sign. Great for my range, but I'll have to practice, especially if I aim to be in idol this year. *shifty eyes*

Tho' if I do place in idol, *crosses fingers* what do you all think which costume I should be in? *is in sig below*

Hey, I'm planning on signing up for the Kamoricon Idol but I just have on quick question. In the rules it says we can "maybe" us english translations of songs. Is "maybe" a yes or a no? Does it depend what song?

I'd also like to know how you'd go about getting rid of the vocals on a song. Do you need a special program?

I'm going to be entering but.. I can' seem to find a short enough osng for the auditions that was actually released on cd. I asked on the official forum and have yet to get a response...

Does anyone know if it's alright to use a karaoke that has been created by fans of the show? I'm not sure, because of the no editing rule.

I'm not exactly sure about the audition stage, but for the contest itself you can't....

But, if you want, what they will do is play the selected song till the end of the time limit, and fade it out from there. That's also another option. :D



So instead of singing Yasashii Yoake, since I know for a fact I won't have it completely memorized in a week....-_-;;

Does anyone here know a song called Shining Star by Nami Tamaki? I'll most likely be singing that, since I already know it and it's right in my range and voice style. *shifty eyes*

EDIT: Or, I'll be singing Sanctuary by Nami Tamaki as well, the opening to Kiba. <.<...>.>.....

I know both of those Nami Tamaki songs! Beware, if I see you, I will likely ask to glomp you... Especially if you're in Yami Yugi cosplay...

I decided to not enter this year. Too much hassle/too long for my first con Karaoke contest. I'm going to try the Sakura-con contest next year instead. You don't have to do as much..

XD Well, I'll be at both karaoke audition and the contests....and does anyone know why the contests are scheduled at the same time this year? o.O;; They're usually at either different times on the same day or on completely different days. And Idol's usually the first contest up.

:P I'm most likely going to be in my Shuichi cosplay-- it's the cosplay that I feel the most comfortable in. Ironic, isn't it? :P (Especially since he's a singer..) Yea, I'm unfortunately only being Yami Yugi for the YGO photoshoot. Since I was asked by several of the people in it.......

So what do you think, since you know both? Sanctuary or Shining star? *shifty eyes* *is very indecisive*

Edit: @@Sapphira-- Just for ya, I'll cosplay Yami Yugi. ^_^ But I won't have my hair done up though, I won't have enough time that day

Well then, I'l have to go see the photoshoot and glomp you there. :)
As for which song, it depends on the voice you have.. If you have a deeper voice, go with Sanctuary, if you have a brighter, happier voice, go with Shining Star.

See, that's the thing. My voice style can do both of those. It's very much like Nami-chan's......<.<....>.>........

I'll most likely sing Shining Star, since I've gotten requests from several of my other friends to do that while being Yami. *rolls eyes*

:D Well, I'll be in the contest. And since both contests are back-to-back this year, (why the hell did they do that? o_0) easy enough of a determined time. And I'll be pretty hard to miss-- considering now I have a very good chance of actually having the hair done. (I'll probably get a wig and style it)

And....I just thought of the strangest comment I think I can come up with in a while.....

"Yami, the amazing dancing ferret!" @_@ I'm done now...

Bakura looked adorable in this icon, so I had to use it..(That and I can't seem to fin d a good Yami icon..)

And yes, the 5,000 years without sugar may have taken a toll on his resistance....

Are you going to be wearing a Sennen Puzzle with your cosplay?(Good ones are suprisingly hard to find!)

And besides, Yami isn't Yami without a Puzzle. :D

And argh, I am still so pissed at qqcosplay for not responding to my requests for an invoice on a Pharaoh Atemu costume. Otherwise I wouldn't have this problem. *sigh*

You're going to be dropping by Uwajiamaya? Heh, I live about ten min. away from there. :D
