Topic: Karaoke idol contest

Hi all,
Just a note to let you know I'm in the finals at a local karaoke contest!! The finals are tonight... Top 14 advanced. Top 6 move on to second round... First prize is $1000, second prize is $500 and third place gets $250!!! I'm not egotistical enough to even make plans for the $1000, but I sure would enjoy an extra $250!!!!!
I'm singing Proud Mary (the Ike and Tina version) and Welcome to the Jungle (Guns n Roses). I'm really a country girl, but I'm singing what the judges want to hear.

Kris-this is a place that has witnessed many miracles and believes in miracles, so be egotistical and go for first place!! If they judge on character you have it in the bag!!
Go Tina!!
Lots of prayers for first-Cathy

Re: Karaoke idol contest

Kris, so sorry about that but good luck to your friend. Going out tonight with Marilise to another Karaoke Club in Scottsdale that years ago was the Mob hangout and they have kept it pretty much the same in looks. Very cool and you can feel the vibes. If you come out this winter we will def do the big K!

Re: Karaoke idol contest

Hey Kris!  I would love to meet you sometime in NYC, if you'd like.  You just sound like a lovely person.  AND, I have rediscovered that when in the throes of nasty side effects like wrap around cramps from FOLFIRI, the only analgesic that works is singing!  I've even begun to write songs, something that for some reason, given a musical life, I hadn't ever been able to do.  Maybe I'll post my Oxali Platinum Blues.  Please do contact me.  I'm putting together a casual singing group.  And I will be exploring the trial you're on. 

best to you and all of us!

Re: Karaoke idol contest

Regina, I got a great chuckle out of that! "Oxali Platinum Blues"!! Haha
We will have to work on a NYC get together. There's a few of you... Randi, Sandy, you and anyone else?

Re: Karaoke idol contest

Oh I really do have the Oxali Platinum Blues!!  Nothing cold please!!

Re: Karaoke idol contest

Terrific!  I look forward.

Re: Karaoke idol contest

Hey Kris, I'm a karaoke junky too.  I did a contest once too, but didn't make it.  I sing alot of Lady Gaga, and one of the judges hated her, oh well, it was a blast anyway!  Sorry you didn't make it, it's all about having fun.  Good for you that you get out and go.  Denise
