Hey Kids! What it time for?... The TMOA Idol 4 Competition ....

Do You have what it Takes to be declared by the Listeners of TMOA to be The TMOA Idol????

Here is how the contest will work. Starting today, Jan 30th, 2012, each singer will choose 3 songs of your own choice... That's right, All Three Songs will be of your own choosing... Remember, since you win by the number of votes you receive after each Round, use Strategery. Do you choose a very popular song? or a song that really shows of your talents?

If you cannot find a karaoke version of the songs of your choice, We will attempt to find the karaoke version of these songs, ready to add your wonderful, vocals... If it doesn't exist, make another selection.
If you need some assistance in how to record your voice to the music, I will provide you with technical details... (use Audacity) :whistling:

To be entered, you must submit your First Song to me, by E-Mail: aka.themonk@charter.net by Midnight, Friday, February 17th.
This is so we can premier the First Round of Songs on the 24 Ken and Cathy Sunday Anniversary Show! Best way to do this is by uploading the song to a file sharing site and emailing me the link. You want your song to sound the best when we play it on the show.

You can present the three songs in any order you choose....and this will be important.

Every song will be voted on and given points by the Listeners of TMOA. Each vote will give a rating of a '3, 2, or 1', with 3 being the best, 1 the worst. Votes for songs can be PM'ed or Emailed to me at aka.themonk@charter.net . Singers may vote for their own songs and the other contestants' song. More on voting rules on the Ballots that will be posted here in the Official TMOA Idol Thread!

We will premier the songs on the Ken and Cathy Show... Depending on how many contestants we get will depend on how many we can get on with one show... There the songs will be commented on by a panel of unsympathetic critics.
But the winner will be determined by the Votes of the Listeners.

You are encouraged to provide a link to your song for listening, or a link for downloading in this, the Official TMOA Idol 4 Thread...

All the Votes will be held in a Mayonnaise Jar.... yes, that Film of the Fortnight Mayo Jar.... Until all songs have been previewed and Played on Air.

If you think you can be the TMOA Idol.... You indicate your interest by Posting in This Thread.... You must have submitted a song to me by Midnight GMT February 17th to be Officially entered.

Prizes.... You betcha... a One Hundred Dollar Gift certificate from the Vendor of Your Choice....
Sign up... all this could be your's for just a Song. :rockon:

Feb. 17th is the deadline for your first song... March 2nd is the deadline for the second song.. and March 16th the deadline for the final song....

I know that a long time between songs, but it gives the listeners time to Vote for your Masterpiece!

Here is a good way to put your song where everyone can listen to it. Make a quick movie and put it on TMUnderground, then put the movie/song in to the Idol Channel... check it out!

If you have won TMOA Idol in the past, you cannot win, but we encourage you to give us a song or two to give this year's Idolers something to shoot for!

Any questions? Just post them here in the Official TMOA Idol 4 thread!

Just remember to sing like nobody is listening and Dance like you just dont care!

Ooooh, I was wondering when this would be starting up again! I like the choice aspect this year, I think it will add more variety to the entries. Hopefully we'll see plenty more contestants this way... Now, I need to decide which songs I'm gonna do :)

Hmm...

I might have to think about this because when it comes to singing, it's pretty much, for me, hit-and-miss/metal-sounding.

I am in, unless this stupid cold I have doesn't go away in time. If it doesn't go away I may have to submit some foghorn impressions.

I made a little flyer for this and posted it in the Reallusion forums. If someone were so inclined to do so in the MovieStorm forums or elsewhere that would be lovely. Just link the image back to this thread.

I'm a well-known glutton for punishment, so my first song can be found here:

You can listen to it there or download it for your collection of things trashing up your hard drive.

I'm having trouble e-mailing it to you. Is there another way to get the music to you on time besides on here?

I don't know exactly what problem you're having, but if you upload it to a file-sharing site and send Monk a link to the song, he will get it that way. The one I use and recommend is www.4shared.com. It's free, gives you 10 GB of space, and automatically converts your music to .mp3 format.

You have a nice voice RPO. You articulate well too (nice vibrato, etc.). The rubato may not have been intentional, can't be sure, but it works pretty well wit this tune, and the backing track is pretty darned good too!

Bonus points for the scat singing. :)

Nice job!
