yo, wait....hold up, though!!!!

because i would want it to work EXACTLY like this:

it would be a worldwide contest every year. all submissions to the contest may only be given by karaoke DJs, not the performer. karaoke DJs would be barred from performing themselves in the contest. only 20 winners will be chosen worldwide. it's possible that all 20 winners could all be from the same country, same city or even the same damn bar with the same kj.

there would be a charge for kjs to submit to the contest. maybe $500 per submission. or $1000. i haven't decided. this is so that kjs really thought carefully about their submissions. kjs are allowed to raise money for submissions, though or have a sponsor pay for it.

any karaoke performance is accepted. there is no age barriers or song-genre barriers. however it must be a karaoke song. we'll be liberal with how the song is performed by said performer.

performers/singers who are chosen in the top 20 may get a modest cash reward and a chance to visit the white house, if they wish, like any sports champion does.

all 20 winners could all be rap songs. it could all be country songs. this contest, done my way will not care about that. the same winner can only win once every 3 years. perhaps i'll be the only judge, ha ha

winning performances will not be judged on talent alone, but on overall performance, start to finish. so an awesome voice, still won't net you the top prize of being in the top 20 for the year...

oh, one more thing, all 20 winners would be like considered all first-place winners. so it isn't the top 20 winners from 1-20. they'd all be 20 first-place winners, for me...

all this being said, i'd like to think that i'd submit something to the contest every year. whether i had a worthy performer or not...

anyway, tonight, i saw a performance that'd i'd submit for this year, for sure. my favorite part during this performance was me looking up at the sky a few times and saying out loud, "lord, i can't believe this is happening!" i just kept saying it. and then laughing. and at one point looking to my left at a 20-something year old who was just standing, paralyzed, staring with her mouth wide open. so wide, she could put her fist in her mouth, if she wanted to. oh and then me begging on the mic for the next singer to come follow this performance up, and the next singer absolutely didn't want to.

sure, the woman singing this awesome performance had a voice of an angel. it was just her peformance that she did on the spot on an ordinary karaoke song with an excellent voice, was about the most unexpected peformance i've seen to date as a kj. i can't remember anytime during my career as a kj so many folks first words to me about it were "wtf .... was that?" again, she could sing. i mean really sing. well. but the performance she did on the spot nobody saw coming. i'll never forget it. hope she never repeats it. i only needed to see that once. if i wasn't there and someone told it to me, i'd laugh and say they had an active imagination.

1. anyway, if YOU knew of such a contest, would you submit yearly? or ever?

2. during your career as a kj, how many times would you have submitted? for sure, i know of 2 performances i'd def submit hoping they'd win the top 20. the others i'd submit for fun.

3. do you think any peformances you've ever seen in your life would net in the top 20 for the world during that year? and that others would agree with you?

oh and the kj who submitted such a worthy winning top 20 in the world peformance of the year would win like a nice certificate calling you a cool kj and a chance to go to the white house, if that performance was chosen. hey, it's not like the kj actually did anything really. but i wanna acknowledge them for submitting it.

man, lemme tell you, i kinda missed the first part of her performance. i mean, was busy looking up songs, you know doing KJ stuff. because, she had a great voice. and it was an ordinary karaoke song, so you know, we tend to tune out especially when you're mid-way through the night. thank God i happened to look up on a whim. and literally the first words out of my mouth were, "wtf.....?!"

as you can see, i'm still shook. i would've had the same reaction if all of the sudden she started flying around the room on her own. wouldn't call it a bizarre performance. just unexpected what she doing while she was singing with a beautiful voice.

The problem I see with these kinds of constraints is that you wouldn't be getting amateur singers, they'd all be professionals and the KJ would be doing anything they could to hedge their submission investment. And that's sort of missing the point.

And from the description of your singer tonight, I'll bet she was a pro.

I have stated my position on contests many times. I despise them. Most of them are judged unfairly and have caused a rash of emotions from the contestants including anger, hurt feelings and low self esteem. I've actually seen them drive good singers away.

I've seen some contests where the winner is chosen based on audience applause. Now, what's wrong with this picture? Obviously, the more friends the contestant brings to cheer him or her on is going to win, regardless of how good they are.

And then you have contestants that you've never seen before enter a contest. They make a living out of entering every contest around. They know they're good and they know they have a very good chance of winning and once they do, you never see them again. This doesn't sit very well with the regulars who come out week after week supporting the bar.

No... I have no use for contests. I'm not saying that they're all no good, there are few exceptions, very few. But for the most part it's all based on favoritism. Rarely have I ever seen a contest judged fairly and without bias.
