Karaoke Competition

Karaoke Competition
@ the AAPOR Post-Banquet Party

 
This year we’re injecting some new energy and excitement into the Conference Post-Banquet Party by holding AAPOR’s First Karaoke Competition! The contest will be held at the conference hotel Saturday, May 18th, following the banquet. All interested attendees are encouraged to enter!
 

HOW TO SIGN UP

  • Participants must pre-register.
  • Pick your song. Karaoke vendors can accommodate most new and classic popular songs but not all. The contest is limited to songs under 5 minutes and features the "radio" version. In selecting a song, give consideration to AAPOR’s Conduct Policy.
  • To pre-register, send an email to the conference chair (ckennedy@pewresearch.org) with subject line KARAOKE. In the email list the performer name(s) and the song title. You will be sent a confirmation email when your request has been received.
  • Space is limited, so sign up while spots are still available.

COMPETITION RULES

  • Competition is for solo performances or groups. Up to four microphones may be available, but we urge contestants to plan to manage with as few as two microphones.
  • Each person can only participate in one song.
  • Participation is for AAPOR members who are amateur entertainers. Judges may perform but are not eligible to win.
  • We plan to have three judges. Scores will be tallied at the end (not presented after each song). The trophy will be presented to the winner after the last performance.
  • Performances will be judged on five equally weighted categories: Quality of Singing, Mastery of the Song, Commitment to the Performance, Energy, and Overall Performance.
  • The judges’ decision is final.
  • Props are allowed but neither required nor emphasized in the judging. Please use good judgement.
  • The winning performance will receive one engraved trophy (exactly as shown! I just ordered it).
  • Conference organizers reserve the right to decline songs that clearly violate AAPOR’s Conduct Policy.
  • There is no entry fee.
  • The competition will be held after the Saturday night banquet. This will be approximately 9:30 to 11:30 p.m., with the exact length dependent on the number of performances.
