Hey everyone! Daski here, taking over this season for TSG Idol!

What's TSG Idol? Well it's THE GREATEST SINGING COMPETITION EVER. -coughs-

Essentially this plays out like American Idol does. There are four judges (including myself) who will be listening to your gorgeous voices over the course of several weeks, narrowing down contestants until one person is proclaimed TheSpeedGamers' Idol for Season 3!

The judges will decide on a theme for each week, and you are to post a youtube video (or other audio-hosting website) of a song that correlates with the theme!

This thread is the Main Hub / Interest thread! If you are interested in participating, say so!

Judges:
-Daskichan
-JasefWisener
-Trombonus
-abyssmalstar

FIRST ROUND: SINGER'S CHOICE
Call it "auditions" if you will, the first round of singers can pick any song in their repertoire as long as it's PG/PG-13 (or use creative censoring).

As I won last year, it might be fun to judge rather than compete, if yous till need a judge, but my voice has changed a bit since Season 2, so I could also try to sing again!

Nightlingbolt...I am not sure. However, you could use Audacity (depending on file type). It's free. You could add them both in as separate tracks, then export them out to one single file that you could use in Move Maker.

Daskichan
03-05-2013, 11:21 PM
Here's some things to clarify:

1. Post entries in thread! Use spoiler tags.

2. You do NOT have to have video, you can use Soundcloud or Chirbit or any other sort of audio-hosting website.

3. You now have until after the marathon to submit 1st Round videos!

Is it too late to join in on the singing fun? If not, I might consider joining in... But I don't know if I have the confidence... or the mic quality for it.

QUESTION. I commentate Sunday. Can I do it live? I want to upload something but just in case I need to get the song done in the clutch.

Edit: Realized, while the judges will most likely be watching, I'd like the video to stand anyway in case other contestants are interested and they have to miss.

I wanted a good song that was also silly. I can't listen to the whole thing because all I hear is some dude butchering Queen, but here you all go _awesome_

I was going to compete as well, but I may not get to this time. My voice is shot right now, since I've had this nasty sore throat for two weeks. It sucks. But good luck to everyone else competing!

rudy06
03-12-2013, 08:49 AM
Depending on if the judges want to push it back a bit more, I am more than willing to help anyone try to figure out how to record themselves. I'd hate for that to be the reason for people to not participate.

Alxamei
03-12-2013, 07:25 PM
I couldn't find an instrumental of the song I wanted to do, so is it alright if I just have the song with lyrics quiet in the background? My voice should be pretty obvious above the other one. ^^''

Rudy - Very nice song choice! Fits your voice pretty well, I must say. All the "For You"'s were well carried.

Phil - Haha, excellent. This was amazing. Glad you're stepping out of the judges panel and showing the competition a thing or two! I'm digging the uptempo songs you choose to do. Although, it was a little difficult to hear your own voice at parts during the song. But I could hear you, and you sound good!

Jagger - I like the flow of your voice. You sound quiet, but your voices stays pretty mild. It's not too bad, but I commend the control you have on your voice.

Alxamei - I like how you're articulating your wording, which helps a lot! And you got a pretty voice! I'm sure you know this already, but just make sure you're careful by staying on key. There were a few times that came to mind, but you had plenty of good parts I liked. :)

Battleduk - Nice! It may be just me, but you got some suave going on. You just might be in some competition with Phil. Keep up the good work! I like the tone of your singing as well. I see a lot of potential in you!

Kyle (PIMP SPOT) - Sounds great! You got that nice tone like Battleduk, and I'd like to see you do more with that. Keep it up!


This is, by a mile, much more better than American Idol this season. I'm being serious, too.

So, question, it can't be a musical like in the stage theatre sense correct? Like, it has to have be from a movie? And have premiered in that movie if made from a musical, like you can't do a song from Les Miserables despite it's recent movie remake?

I'll still keep my previous question up for others who may have the same query, but I just felt so honored to be in the second round, that I was inspired to make this right now, and after a fair amount of work I'm pretty proud of how this turned out.

Musicals (from theatre) I'm willing to permit. And i think that's what Daski meant by "Musicals are allowed"... Plus most musicals have been turned into films anyways.

I'm not sure how this turned out. I recorded my voice off of a youtube video with the lyrics there, but when I downloaded a karaoke version to match to it was like a minute shorter somehow. So I edited it together as best as I could but if I'm missing lyrics that's why :P not sure what was happenin'

ANYWAY BATMAN FOREVER Y'ALL

Hey guys! So, regarding my entry for this round, I have some unfortunate news. I lost my voice at a Protomen concert and am in no shape to be singing at the moment. If there is a last minute extension for this round I may still be able to record something, but if not, then I may have to drop out.

Either way, I'm super glad I got to participate this season! All of you guys are really great, and having the chance to share my singing with you guys really warms my heart.

I'll either have my late submission up next time I post, or I'll see you all next season. Either way, thanks a lot! :)

Went a bit upbeat and back to my childhood. I had to edit the song around some of the speaking sections so hopefully it works. XD

Sidenote: I still have never finished the Dr. Horrible Sing Along Blog, but that song is amazing! I am so glad you chose it!
