Welcome to NekoCon Karaoke Spooktacular!

Hours have been spent rehearsing. Many nights have gone by filled with dreams of the coveted microphone trophy. The Witching Hour is at Hand, and its time to groove!
Check-in for performers will be on Friday, earlier in the day. Once your submission is approved, you will receive an e-mail giving you following instructions on when/where to check-in. Failure to check-in at the con is grounds for disqualification. We do understand that Friday is a hectic day of getting off (work, school), checking into the hotel, and getting your badge. If you know ahead of time that you will be late, please email karaoke@nekocon.com to give us a heads-up, we are happy to work with you in making sure your spot is saved.

-We prefer that the song is from an anime, or a video game, but if you think you can wow the crowd with the latest Jpop or K-pop song, go for it!
– Yes, Vocaloid is allowed,  it was never banned. Stop Asking.
–To keep sign-ups simple, entries to compete will be held solely online. Once we receive
the first 30 complete entries, sign-ups will be closed. No sign-ups will be accepted at the convention! We used to give entrants til about 2 weeks before the con , but these slots fill up quickly, so Don’t Delay!


–There will be a mandatory meeting for all karaoke contestants before the event.  This will be announced by email once your entry is accepted.
-We ask that you upload  a MP3 copy of your song in your entry form.  We will check it for quality and content.
— To maximize the number of performances, we are limiting song time to five minutes. If your song runs over time, we will fade the music out and your song is over.

–Everyone involved with the karaoke contest puts a lot of time and effort into making the event a memorable one and a great time. Boos, heckles, catcalls or disrespect of any karaoke judges, MC or contestant will result in ejection from the event, regardless of whether or not you are a participant or audience member.

–Please do not spam the email account asking if we have received your entry; you will receive a prompt email once your song has been evaluated and approved. (Chances are, if you sent it before we post that signups are closed , we have received it.

Once again, please include the MP3 of the song, and bring a backup of the song just in case.

Good Luck! And Let’s Sing and Dance All Night this HALLOWEEN!
