Otaku Idol

I figured it was good to post as American Idol is finishing up. Is anyone planning on going? Do you think it will be a big event?

I'm a contestant, actually. ^_^ From what I know of it, there are 10 of us competing... The time is either sometime around noon or in the early evening before the masquerade... We're trying to get it in one of the bigger rooms at the convention center, but no one's confirmed. ^_^

The Otaku Idol site should be up around June 1st. ^_^ Wish I could be more helpful, but it should be fun, if nothing else. ^_^

I'm really looking forward to it. I think it'll be a big event. I guess because I liked American Idol, except they sang a massive amount of crappy songs. This will have more songs I know and more songs I like. Hope you do well n.n
hmmms I thought I read they were starting with 100 then booting 50, then keeping ten and we pick from there. ::Goes to look::

nope you were right n.n
10>5>3>2 >audience choice>winner

The song list is really good, I'm sure you won't be dissapointed. ^_^ I'm not allowed to reveal any, but if I get to the last round, I expect people to sing along at parts. ^_~ (Not giving it away, just pretty well guaranteeing people will know the song. ^ ^;

So the contestants were already picked? I signed up to try and get in, but I've heard nothing... You'd think they'd tell the stand-bys, too..

The contestants were picked just after April 15th. I assume a lot of people entered, and it's not exceptionally well organized from what I've seen... I don't even know half of my songs anymore. ^ ^;; Hehe... But it really should be fun.

Oh, well Raine, Otaku Idol is basically an American Idol spoof. ^_^ There are four rounds to competition.

Round One - Anime Song
Round Two - Anime Song
Round Three - Jpop/Jrock Song
Round Four - Contestant's Choice

I don't think we're allowed to reveal our choices or the song list, but I can guarantee that all the songs picked have been good ones. ^_^

We're eliminated based on audience opinion and the judges, depending on the round. ^_^

More information is on the site : http://www.otakon.com/happenings/hap...otakuidol.html
