Is that love in the air?
NO. That, friends, is the beautiful scent of competition: blood, sweat and tears, but mostly blood.
Yes, that's right, Karaoke Idol! Chicago is back after taking a month off. We hope you've been practicing your skills during this downtime, because July 25th's K-Idol is an OPEN COMPETITION.
Yes, an OPEN COMPETITION.
There are six finalist slots, and anyone can compete for them.
Here's the deal:
8 pm - 10 pm
Open karaoke. Anyone who signs up to sing is entered into the competition. Yes, there's a $5 dollar door charge. Yes, the winners gets a cut of that (so, you know, win).
COME EARLY. Rarely have we gotten through everyone who signed up at the beginning. If you show up at 8 and sign up, it's a good chance you'll get to sing. If you show up at 9 and sign up, well, you might get left behind.
DON'T GET LEFT BEHIND WE LOVE YOU.
Also, if you want to sing, but don't want to compete, that's totally cool. Come, sing, have fun!
We'll announce our finalists at 10! The three celebrity judges will watch everyone who sings earlier in the night carefully. Based on energy, style, and crowd response, they will choose six combatants to compete against each other for the Karaoke Crown (which will be whatever awkward headpiece we have lyin' around) in round 2.
10 pm - 10:45 pm
The six finalists will sing their hearts out till only two remain. The crowd will choose who goes and who stays by applause.
10:45 pm - 11 pm
TWO POOR SOULS WILL WALK ONTO THE STAGE BUT ONLY ONE WILL LEAVE IT A KARAOKE CHAMPION.
The top two singers from round two will sing a song of the judges' choosing. The crowd will then pick the winner of Karaoke Idol! Chicago by applause.
If you are the winner, you will get...
CASH! MONEY! FORTUNES! What else? You get half the door money.
And, more importantly, you'll win PBR as tall as you!
