Music swells in the background without lyrics, and you are the only one that can create them! If you aren’t afraid to sing, step up to the karaoke mic to sing your heart out. From open-mic to the competition, raise the music, bring energy to the crowd and you could end up getting the glory. Karaoke is a nearly non-stop part of FanimeCon, so it will be there whenever you want a place to listen to great music and the voices of other attendees making it an enchanting part of the weekend. No registration required, just show up and have fun!
Featuring a diverse group of passionate and talented singers, the 12th Annual FanimeCon Karaoke Contest brings the spirit of friendly competition and the excitement of vocal performance to the convention stage. If you enjoy singing, come sign up for our contest, or just come and cheer on your fellow fans!
The contest consists of two rounds. In the qualifying round, our talented performers will sing their hearts out for the chance to advance to the finals. The Top Ten acts in the qualifying round qualify for the Finals. All finalists will receive cool prizes, and the winner also receives a beautifully customized microphone trophy and the opportunity to perform during the FanimeCon Masquerade!
