N.M. STATE FAIR KARAOKE SHOWCASE/COMPETITION
As the contest begins, important updates will be posted here. Be sure to check in daily!
Welcome to the 2016 NM State Fair Karaoke Showcase and the 2016 Karaoke Season ® in New Mexico! We are so excited to be hosting this third annual amazing event in partnership with the New Mexico State Fair, and many venues and KJ’s across the state.
Between April 15 and September 5, we will be hosting many qualifying auditions in many venues across the state to find the top 96 adult karaoke junkies and top 12 minor (under 21) karaoke junkies. Each venue will be qualifying anywhere from 2-10 singers. Scroll down to find out who the venues are and when they are hosting the qualifying night in your neighborhood.
Most venues, but not all will require pre-registering on line right here. Click on the button on the navigation menu to REGSITER. There will be open karaoke at the Fair, however there will not be any qualifying at the Fair, anyone in the showcase has to qualify at a participating venue.
Once you qualify to the NM State Fair Karaoke Showcase, you will chose your night at the Fair and receive a pass for entry.
Each night at the Fair, for the first eight nights, twelve adults will sing a song on the Main Pavilion. They will be scored by a panel of qualified judges and the scores will be sealed. After the twelve have sung on the eighth night, the scores will be opened and the top twenty four singers will return on the ninth night for the semi finals. After the twenty four have sung a song, the judges will determine the top twelve, and they shall return on the tenth night for the finals. Once the top twelve have sung a song, the judges will determine the top three, and then the top three shall sing two songs in a row, and then the judges shall determine the third place, second place and the new Karaoke Champion of New Mexico, and give all three of them some cash, a trophy, and other amazing prizes.
On the last day of the Fair, in the late afternoon. The twelve qualified minors shall take the stage and each sing one song. While the judges are determining who the top three minors are, we will be awarding the Top Male, Top Female, Top Minor, Best KJ, Best Venue and Special Recognition awards. Once the judges have determined the top three minors, each one shall be called on stage to sing two songs in a row. The judges will then determine the third place, second place and the 2016 NM State Fair Minor Karaoke Champion, and give all three of them some cash, a trophy, and other amazing prizes.
We are partnering with Yellow Ribbon Suicide Prevention and Mental Health awareness this year in hopes that we may be able to help those needing to find help for Mental Health. There will be a table at each of the venues and the NMSF with information to help.
We are also providing coaches for everyone who enters this year. Angie Edwards and Milli Wilson have donated their time to help you get through this massive event. When you register you will be assigned a coach that will answer any questions you may during your journey.
Anyone who tries out three times at a "QUALIFICATION AUDITION" and does not advance into the "SHOWCASE" will be guaranteed a reserved spot in the OPEN KARAOKE and a pass into the Fair on the chosen day.
What are you waiting for? Let get started! We shall sing you at the Fair!
