[CENTER]Falalalala, lalalala!


Think you've swooned your town greatly with carols, enough? Show your talent and spirit with one of your favorite Christmas songs and shine your way out here for our New Year Extravaganza!

All entries will be judged by myself (Kaori) and Vendak. We will judge on how well you hit the notes to your chosen song and the spirit put into it.

The Rules! ♫♪
• You must post an entry with your singing of one Christmas song or a regular song of your choice. It doesn't have to be the whole version, just a good length to where we can judge your voice properly.
• All entries should be recorded and uploaded by attaching the file. To do so, click the Go Advanced button in your post and scroll down to where you see a box beneath that says "Attach Files". Then click "Manage Attachments" and attach your clip with one of the valid file extensions given. For a good voice recording program, I would suggest Audacity.
• Do not record another person's singing off of a website and claiming it as yours. This counts as plagiarizing and you could receive a heavy infraction for doing so.
• For your song clip, include "This is by...(your username) and the name of the song as well; preferably in the title of the clip's saved file name.
• Show off your talent and have fun!

...and that's basically it!
Winners get peppermint hot chocolate emblems as rewards, and those who unfortunately didn't have the best vocalizing done, still receive a participation emblem for the high effort and singing put into this event. :)

Happy Holidays!

Just a couple of questions:

You must post an entry with your singing of one Christmas song or a regular song of your choice.

1. So basically any song will do, right?
2. Does the song have to be in English or would any other language do as well?

thank you

1. Yes, any song will do.
2. Nope, any other language can work. I don't see why not either. :)

You're welcome, enjoy the event!

It's me singing good ol' Jingle Bells. It's recorded on my phone since my laptop's mic is dead (that was what that cut wire was! :surprised:), and the phone recorded has a HQ setting, much better than that standard one.

File works with QuickTime.

Loved the beginning, but after the backing track kicked in it totally drowned out your voice. :(
It might be a good idea to upload one without a backing track, or at least with the backing track volume turned right down.

I read the first post and would love to make an entry, but there is no finishing date in the first post.
When do entries need to be in by?

Erm Im sorry to bother you again, but whats the last date of submission?

Im asking this because Ive caught a cold, it might take a couple of days to recover. Until it passes the only things I can cover are Sepaltura or Slipknot :-p

I'm under the impression from this thread (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=238752) that all of the New Year events end on the 2nd of January. So I suppose that is the final day of submission. I doubt Kaori and myself will need a full day to judge all of the entries, so I will just say I'll accept anything before the 3rd of January and we'll probably announce the results on the 3rd or the final hours of the 2nd.
