Karaoke Contest

Karaoke New Char1e

 

Always a favorite, Retro Con’s Truly Outrageous Karaoke Contest will be back for Retro Con 2018!

But this year we’re getting TRULY TRULY TRULY Outrageous with the inclusion of Samantha Newark to our judge line-up!

 

 

Hosted once again by our good friend Nagi Oki, the Karaoke contest will be held on SUNDAY at the show (sign-up and competition times will *be determined soon*!). We will make an announcement over the PA system when we are ready to accept entrants. Depending how strong interest is, we may have to institute a lottery-type system to pick our 15 contestants. There are no sign-up fees or age restrictions.

We will have a wide variety of 80’s (and some early 90’s) classics to choose from. Most will have on-screen lyrics to follow along with, but we will also be supplementing these with a few geek-related favorites that will have a *lyrics sheet only*. Consider these “extra credit” choices! 

The full list of song choices can be found HERE!

 

 

The contest rules are as follows:

 

#1. No staff or volunteers may enter.
#2. Singing in costume is allowed, but will not affect the judges’ scoring.
#3. No skits are allowed. Dancing in place however is just fine (and encouraged).
#4. Solo artists only, please. No duets/trios/etc.
#5. Songs will be picked on a first-come, first-served basis. Songs will not be held for specific contestants. Also, outside music will not be allowed.
#6. No instruments will be allowed.
#7. All contestants must arrive at the panel/event room *15 minutes* prior to showtime for check-in and singing order assignment. If you are not present at this time, you may have to forfeit your place.
#8. Please no heckling from the audience or other contestants. Anyone found to be disorderly will be asked to leave the panel area.

#9. You MUST rock.
