Welcome to the Heat Karaoke Amateur Championships – The Finals!

It gets just a little more difficult each round, this isn’t any different.

First thing to note, we have 5 competitors… EACH with the idea they could win. Only 3 of you will make the top 3 and only 1 of you will be 1st place. It is hard to win. It is hard to judge. If you give any judge a hard time, you will not be allowed to enter later competitions. If you create a disturbance, you will not be allowed to do karaoke with me again. Please be adults.

Now the fun part!

Our Finals are on Saturday November 20th at the Southridge Dugout. We will start at 8:30pm that night. We have 3 judges, will will take all 3 scores and add them for your final score. YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED TO TALK TO THE JUDGES! They will rank each competitor based on the following scale.

You will sing 2 songs this night! One is chosen by you, one is chosen by the host! The host will notify you of the song he has chosen for you on 11-17 do NOT make suggestions to the host or you will be outed and disqualified.

For each song you will be graded differently.
