I thought I posted a comment after the competition was over but while skimming back through the pages of the thread I didn't notice any. Shame on me!

It was really fun listening to all the entries, and I honestly thought they were all rather good overall. I'm not a regular of this contest (this is like my second time taking notice of this, after the previous karacom) but it was fun getting to know all the other people who partecipated, both among the competing and non-competing ones. Btw GipFace, I freaking want to steal your voice. The "SUKI SUKI SUKI" bit is now hopelessly stuck in my head and I end up singing unconsciously while I'm on the bus to university. Damn you, haha.

Oh, and thanks for uploading both entries, I totally missed the non-competing ones. I'm really looking forward to the next comp (is it going to be solo, or duets again?).

FYI, the next one's is the singles.

One would think that the reason kcl822 put up so many download links on different sites is so that people could find one they can download from. Thanks anyway.

Maybe you should. How about starting a Yahoo! groups or some kind of group people can join to get announcements about the karacomp? Although that would be yet another group/site people have to join/subscribe to...

I didn't attend the live session but I will give my thoughts after listening to it. As always, I'll be lying if I say they're all wonderful and perfect, so please don't be offended since these are just biased opinions, nothing more.

First of all I'd like to say that I enjoyed this very much and this year produced some amazing karaoke. Thanks for providing the entertainment!

Phaedrine & Mien & Adonic Meki - Super Shooter (Gantz)
-It's not really good but I couldn't get into the song so song choice isn't really that great IMO. 3/10

Fukairi & Hina - TARGET ~Akai Shougeki~ (Digimon ZERO-Two)
-I didn't really hear the vocals very clearly but overall it's very well sung. The music was catchy and that helped somewhat. I enjoyed it. 7/10

Amberle & Ethrus - Lunar (Lunar Silver Story)
-It started out cute and catchy but in some moments had trouble with the harmony. Some of the high notes are a bit off-sync, but pretty good. 5/10

Jiah & GipFace - Waltz (School Days)
-Incredible harmony, what can I say? This is amazing. Some of the solo I didn't like but I really enjoyed it. 9/10

Shiemi & Chibi Nasu - VEGA (Princess Princess D Drama)
-Wow what a hard song to sing and they almost sang it very well too. Very good vocals but the song was still a bit too hard, sorry. 8/10

keiko8 & HirokiBaby - Bon Bon (Lovely Complex)
-This has one of my favorite male vocals (I love most of the female vocals). Very nice job in this one, but the different in octaves was kinda weird. 8/10

MisaMisa & Mnemosyne - Yume no Naka e (Kare Kano)
-I didn't really like this one because sometimes it is weirdly harmonic while sometimes it is significantly off-sync. It's still a kinda nice song. 6/10

Hina & Shurin - Go (Naruto)
-Wow...what...wow. I knew when the music started up that this was going to be excellent or blatant failure, and it was excellent. The rap was perfect and the singing was close to excellent. 10/10

Li Jianliang & GipFace - Bakuhatsu da mon~n~ (Sakurando Kiss)
-Well this song was kinda cute...kinda. This might be mean to say but it was very entertaining.... The vocals was just a bit too drowned out by the music, but other than that, it was good. 8/10

Shiemi & Cz - Moment (Gundam Seed)
-I really like Shiemi's vocals. The vocals just didn't mix because one was really high and one was really. Some of the harmony was good though. 6/10

Adonic Meki & mien - Ichigo Tsumi Monogatari (Strawberry Panic)
-Well I'm not going to rate on the precision of this song but overall (and this might be mean also), it was very entertaining. Actually the vocals wasn't bad, seriously, just not really for this song. 6/10

Chibi Nasu & Jub Jub - Ichirin no Hana (Bleach)
-I didn't really think that the vocals were strong enough for this song, because some of it was really too soft. That aside, it's pretty good. 7/10

Shiemi & Cheyanne - Canta Per Me (Noir)
-Wow this was really amazing. I have nothing else to say, but that this is amazing. 9/10

stakato & LeLiAye - Tobira no Mukou e (Full Metal Alchemist)
-This is the same with Ichirin no Hana; I think some of it should be stronger. Overall nice harmony and it was quite enjoyable. 8/10

Chibi Nasu & Cz - Yureta Kandagawa (Hunter x Hunter)
-Interesting melody from the song itself, and the singing was very good. Chibi's vocals here was definitely top-notched, and Cz amazingly complemented pretty well. I still think that it's quite low like his other duet. 9/10

Biiru & Hina - Hare Hare Yukai (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
-It started out with an accurate representation of the original vocal but kinda soft. However, it was followed by the best karaoke I've heard in my life. Amazing. Perfect. Speechless. It's incredibly accurate with the original version. 10/10

Mnemosyne & Li Jianliang - Zessei Bijin (Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei)
-I think it's pretty good. It's not my type of song, so I didn't really like the melody much. However, it has nice vocals. 8/10

Fome & GipFace - Okkusenman (Megaman 2)
-Well this is some impressive singing. The song itself isn't that great, but I enjoyed the effort and harmony. 8/10

Naoko & Shurin - Best Friend (Fushigi Yuugi)
-The music was kinda overpowering the vocals, which were average in my opinion. It started off kinda slow in the beginning then picked up in the end. 8/10

kcl822 & Meiyo - Glamorous Sky (NANA)
-Is this one of the entries? Anyways, it's pretty good, even though the music should be a bit louder. Very nice. 8/10

So who's the winner to me? GO!!! and Hare Hare Yukai are obvious candidates for me, but I can't really decide. I congratulate Hina for being so talented though, because both songs were sang very nicely.

Just wanted to remind people that the deadlines for voting is today at midnight! Don't miss the chance to vote for your favorite entry! Maybe is because people are busy these days but the participation in voting and commenting was a bit... how shall we say this... Horrible. Another reminder: you must email me the votes. What other reminders are there...

-Email the scores to kcl822@gmail.com. Subject line should have the word "karaoke" so I don't delete it by accident.
-If you are one of the participants, you cannot vote for your own entries for obvious reasons.
-Add your nickname to the email so I know who you are. If you are one of those who have a lot of nicknames, please add them all. Don't make me cross-reference them.
-If you want to add comments, please do so. I will gather them all at the end of the week and post them. They will be anonymous so you don't have to worry about retribution.
-The deadline for voting is November 13th at 11:59p.m. EST. The scores will be posted the following day.
Posting the original instructions again might be a good reminder, lol.

Wah I finally handed in my comments and grades

Message to everyone: I tried to be as objective and honest as possible, advising on which things you can improve. Maybe I seem a bit harsh on some parts, but that was not my intention! My intention is only good and trying to help everyone. ^^

Congrats to the winners!!!! Well deserved win for Biiru and Hina.

I'm a little confused though by:
2. Mnemosyne & Li Jianliang
4. Mnemosyne & Atashi

I thought Li Jianliang was Atashi? Or am I just losing my mind, because that's quite possible too.

Whoa... what? #3 in popular vote? Wow.

Most of the credit goes to chibi nasu of course - thanks for choosing that song and singing with me. Thanks to kcl822 for her comments.
Spoiler for In Moment's defense:
Congrats to the Hare Hare Yukai pair - I thought you sounded great.

Re: Waltz
PS: your falsetto needs to go a bit higher than that.
GipFace does great falsettos, as usual.
You've got to be kidding. I did not falsetto once in the song because I knew there would be no chance of contention if I weaseled into it (The entries with falsetto fared poorly: Ever Stay Snow got 6.63 [37th place out of 78 entries], and Feel Coming Spring Piano got third-last!). That C5 was not falsetto, and I am disappointed that people cannot discern the difference. *cries*
Random trivia: Highest note I can hit with falsetto is E6. No, you'll never hear me sing it because not even Canta Per Me goes that high. ~_~

Second place is a very close one
So I guess we lost by half a point or something, right?

Re: Sakuranbo Kiss
The most glaring thing for me was that the timing was a bit off in the chorus.
What got to me though was the not so good synchronization of the voices. Try better sync next time!
Yeah, I was late transitioning from the harmony to the creepy voice at the very end. After doing the rest of the song without any sync errors, I didn't feel like doing a retake.

Well, don't let my comments put a damper into things, because they really shouldn't. I just have high personal expectations every time I enter. Three cheers to Hina and Beer for winning it all! ^_^
(I gave them a 9... my lone 10 pick didn't make the top five...)

From the bottom of my heart, I'd like to thank everyone who was involved in the contest. I'd also like to thank my partners, Jiah, Li Jianliang, and Fome, for being exceptional people to work with. They were very nice and were open to my crazy suggestions (I picked all the songs we did). I had a lot of fun doing every entry, and have no reservations about recommending them to anyone for next time!

Hmm... Shiemi really needs to win one day. She is the best singer that still hasn't won one yet. I'm rooting for you, Shiemi!

One last thing: I noticed you included ALL my comments. You detectives now have a one in three chance of guessing which comments are from me. However, there are an uneven number of comments per person. Did you filter out any of the nasty stuff? I think the comments should be uncensored.

Oh well. See you all next season... hopefully this winter! (come on kcl, you know you waaaant to)

Hey Gip, thanks for sticking with me in spite of some technical issues on my side. And I agree, I've always felt that Shiemi should have won at some point. It's almost as if she's given up a little bit on winning first place (just my conjecture). I voted her one of the highest scores in her first ever entry.
