My assault on the Karaoke World Championship continues. Last night my cheer-posse and I descended on the Rex Hotel, for the venue finals. A great night of song and fun, and the hosts have to be commended for putting on a great show. End result, I came 2nd for the night, and along with the winner I will be competing in the State Finals in a couple of weeks.
First time I’ve competed in this level of singing, and I quickly learnt a couple of things. It’s SOP to have a change of costume between your songs (serious!). It’s also a bad idea to stick to only the one artist/group. Variety and versitility can have an effect on your final score. One kind soul also suggested not looking at the screen so often, and learning all of the words. True, and a quick squiz at the offical KWC Youtube clips (world champions at the international finals) proves that these folks are more or less singing as pros – entertaining the crowd, dancing, and belting it out with full confidence. Turns out it’s serious business!
Next, the State Finals await. Bring it on
