A special thank you to the CMO Team, New Mexico State Fair Staff, and participating venues for making this all possible!
Cheers to the biggest karaoke season!
As the contest begins, important updates will be posted here. Be sure to check in daily!
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 2018 New Mexico State Fair Minor Karaoke Champion, and give all three of them some cash, a trophy, and other amazing prizes.

We are also providing coaches for everyone who enters this year. Angie Edwards and Milli Wilson, with each having an assistant, 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!
