Beginning February 16, stardom-seeking singers can enter Songburst, a karaoke singing contest in Costa Mesa, California, with the winner taking home $1,000.
And everyone including tone-deaf tunesmiths are encouraged to try out.
Spokesperson Peter Parker says, The only time anyone gets booed off is when theyre making a complete spectacle of themselves or trying to make fun of other contestants. You dont have to be Pavarotti to enter.
But dont think that you can win by pulling a William Hung, because you still have to impress your fellow competitors, who will vote for the winner.
Says Parker: People realize karaoke is more than singing loudly and off tune. Everyones taking the same risk of performing in front of people, but some of our quality singers are as good as the pros.
