    1st Round over

    We only had 8 submissions this round, but that's okay because they are all high quality! Here's who submitted and what they sang:
    • Zony11, singing some weeaboo shit Sailor Moon!
    • Ascaroote, singing Adele AND PLAYING PIANO WOW
    • Yttrium, singing the longest song known to man ,
    Give props to these 8 people, because they actually had the balls to sing for the rest of you and stay in the game. Those who signed up and didn't submit, you are eliminated from the game and also dead to me!

    One of @heartbreaker or @Water will be posting soon with the next theme and updated rules for the remaining 8 contestants!

    Can I bribe using the very elusive rap of one user Joyfrost?

    Also everyone sings very well except for me who sucks horribly.

    I wanna start this by saying a massive "well done" to everyone for having the bollocks (or lady bollocks, or none of the above) to do this.

    Overall thoughts: There's 2 ways to go about this - go full out on the hilarity, and win over the assholes that way; or try and pick a song that will work the best for your specific vocal range and type of voice to help you do the best you can. With slightly better song choice, I think you can all do pretty well.

    Individual thoughts in the spoiler tag. I'm trying to offer constructive criticism, and advice that I feel will help you going forward in future rounds. I don't mean anything in a negative way.
    Zony11 - Hard to judge properly due to the song choice, as I feel it might not be the best choice for your voice, but I think you could just win this. Well done. Had to turn my headset down though, holy shit lol.

    Jethalal - you win this round for best voice/song choice combination imo. I think the song worked for your voice. I'd like a little more volume and confidence though.

    AO - you win the "worst song choice" award. That's personal opinion though, not related to your voice at all. It was going well, but then you seemed to move, and the recording couldn't pick up much after that. Sort that out, and you'll be fine.

    AJ - You made me laugh, I enjoyed it. It gets docked points, however, for you not saying that you were stepping away from the mic to breathe. A rookie mistake.

    Diamondslight - you did well, and the majority of the song was within your vocal range, which was surprising. The highest notes, however, were not. The lowest notes actually sounded the best to me, personally. I think a song in a very slightly lower key would suit you going forward.

    Ascarotte - I think a slightly lower key would suit you too. The bit from 1:25 - 1:52 (and a bit from ~2:55 - ~3:20) was my favourite, and I think it suited your natural voice singing at that sort of range when compared to the rest of the song. Still, it was well done.

    Yttrium - You'll always be PokeWorldBW to me lol. You win "best song choice" award, it's such a classic. I don't think it was necessarily the best song for you, due to the sheer length, the repeated changes in pace, and the tone, but you did well on it despite all of this. You sang for more than twice as long as anyone else, so well done! I think a song made for someone with a lower voice would suit you better. One other key thing here is that you need to open up a bit, gain a bit of confidence and just go for it. You need to beat out the volume of the backing track, as it was hard to hear you in certain spots. You can do it!

    Hedylogos - It seems clear that you've got the right sort of song for your voice here, as it suits you well, and you sang it well. However, I can't really say more than that due to not really knowing what was being sung.

    Final thoughts:
    1. Where the fuck is the judge's song?
    2. Kinda wish I saw this in signups, oh well.

    I'd definitely be willing to provide advice to anyone who asks me for it, by the way! Feel free to send me questions you have about how we judge, what would fit your voice, or anything else related to PO Idol!

    Two reasons why I chose that song was one something I'm sorta comfortable of doing and two just to mess around to see who would say something like "What? Diamond sounds like that?" I might keep fooling around like that in later rounds depending on what we get. That or I end up picking something I have no business singing and fail.

    Sorry MeowMix, but my voice legit sucks. I only came to like a few posts only to get in this mess. I shouldn't have done that I guess.

    But the songs have kinda, you know, made me a bit more enthusiastic. I'd probably sing something for you guys by the next week or so, cause I'll have access to mikes and shit. Don't blame me if it's shitty though, I am a shitty user anyway.

    Was disappointed to click link and not hear Sonic X theme. Maybe next round? Was gonna do a song myself, but I had a fever all weekend :(. Maybe hosts will let me do guest appearance in a future round. Good luck to everyone still in the game.

    Sorry to keep you guys waiting with the new information, but here it is!

    The theme for Round 2 is: Boybands! (Metallica is not a boyband)

    To confirm your song choice, start (or continue) a conversation with all of the judges (@Water, @NAVIDAD PIRATE, @heartbreaker). If you have a question or want advice, you can talk in the conversation or PM one of us individually.


    The deadline for Round 2 submissions is January 18th, at 11:59 PM EST. If you need extra time, please ask as soon as possible.


    Good luck everyone, and enjoy yourselves.
    Paula

    You know, this theme is a lot harder than it might seem, especially if you're using the same backing track. You're literally singing the parts of 3+ people who probably cover different vocal ranges in the group, and without any backing vocals. ​

    Coming down with a cold :< also apparently I don't have a recording program on this computer. Wonder when that got deleted.

    Anyway I'll do a guest song when my voice can actually handle it.

    IN THE MEAN TIME, WHERE IS WATER'S SONG?????????
