To The 2019 New Mexico State Fair Karaoke Showcase
N.M. STATE FAIR KARAOKE SHOWCASE/COMPETITION
OFFICIAL TICKER
Welcome to the 2019 NM State Fair Karaoke Showcase and the 2019 Karaoke Season® in New Mexico! 

Welcome to the 2019 NM State Fair Karaoke Showcase and the 2019 Karaoke Season® in New Mexico! 

We are so excited to be hosting this fifth annual amazing event in partnership with the New Mexico State Fair, and many venues and KJ’s across the state. This is the largest karaoke competition in the United States!

Between April 19th and August 22nd, we will be hosting many qualifying auditions in 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, with a total of 18 participating venues, hosting a total of 55 auditions. Scroll down to find out who the venues are and when they are hosting the qualifying night in your neighborhood.

All venues will require on line registration right here, or onsite registration with the KJ or a Call Me Ozz staff member. Click on the button on the navigation menu to REGISTER. There will also be open karaoke at the fair, however there will not be any qualifying at the fair. Anyone in the showcase must qualify at a participating venue.

Once you qualify to the NM State Fair Karaoke Showcase, you will choose 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 semifinals. 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 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 2019 New Mexico State Fair Minor Karaoke Champion, and give all three of them some cash, a trophy, and other amazing prizes. There will only be one qualifying audition for the minors, it will be held Saturday, June 8th from 5:00-9:00pm at Haynes Park in Rio Rancho. Twenty-four may enter, twelve will qualify. 

We are also providing mentors for everyone who enters this year. Angie Edwards, Kenny Johnson and Michelle Lujan Weidauer, 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.

What are you waiting for? Go to the registration page right now and get signed up before it’s too late! The first thirty six that qualify get the best nights at the Fair! Sing you there!
