Hello there! Are you looking to sing some of your favorite anime/video-game songs? Or maybe you're just looking for a cool place to chill and kill a few hours? Well then you'll be right at home at this year's karaoke.

This is my first year doing this at ACen, having done this at other conventions in the area. Our format is simple and low-tech: we have paper lists of the songs that we have, you fill out a paper slip saying what song you want to sing, and you turn it in up front where we put you at the bottom of the queue. When you reach the front of the queue, you come up and you sing. Paper lyric sheets are available on request.

Of course, we don't have every song that you could possibly want to sing. So if you have your song on a USB thumb drive, we can play a song for you (so long as it is con appropriate). Please make sure your songs are in the mp3 format.

Looking forward to seeing you all Friday evening, and potentially losing my voice before Saturday hits.

Looking forward to it. Not sure on my own ideas but the wife is really sold on singing a character song from Metal Gear whether it be Snake Eater, Love Deterrence or Heavens Divide.

Karaoke is one of the highlights of every ACen for me and I'm sure this year will be no different.

Just a general question, but is the list limited to JUST anime/games or are there some average run-on-the-mill songs you'd hear on the radio as well?

With all love and respect to you the ACen staff and panelists, but I hope Karaoke is not limited to anime/Japanese/video games only this year. No offense, but it wasn't as fun last year IMO. Not everyone can sing to Japanese only and IMO most people didn't seem as into the panels last year.

I'm not going to limit it to anime/video game/Japanese music. That said, 99% of what I bring will belong in that category. If there is a particular western song that you are looking for, you'll be best off bringing it yourself.

I will be working to provide some select western music. Just don't expect an expansive variety.

Okay, I can certainly respect that. I'm glad you're not limiting and thank you for that. So just for clarification, the karaoke is being done from a computer or is it a sound machine? I just see you require an MP3 file if we bring our own songs? That's kind of you for being willing to provide sheet music.

The music is played from a computer. Since I do not have the software/hardware components to accept all music-playing devices (e.g. iPods, mp3 players, phones, etc...), it is simplest to restrict it to mp3s on flash drives.

Please make sure the songs are clean, aka pg 13. Since it's not an 18+ panel :) Think "radio rules" if a normal radio station can't play it, then please avoid it.

One Minor Suggestion: I was at U-Chi Con and they did Karaoke by being on the web and going on to YouTube. Would this be a possibility? This would help for songs you may not have access to.

If free internet access is available, it may well be an option. However if I remember things correctly, I don't believe that the Hyatt offers free internet.

Even if you do, if you're in the basement like karaoke was last year, good luck trying to get internet reception, LOOOL. A bunch of people gave up when they couldn't get any signals to find lyrics online on their phones.

The Hyatt does have free internet, but the connection in the basement is hard to get, especially with ACen's attendance number accessing it.
