Take the Mic – Karaoke Contest

Friday 4 August, 2017 @ 9:00 pm
|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 9:00pm on Friday, repeating until 27 October, 2017

Who will be crowned our ultimate Karaoke Star? With $1,500 in cash prizes up for grabs, this is one Karaoke Contest you do not want to miss!

Whether you’re looking to be “discovered,” hoping to win the cash prizes, or just seeking some recognition of your awesome vocal talents, TAKE THE MIC is a great way to test yourself. If you are not up for taking the stage, our contest offers you a chance to see some great performers (and some not-so-great ones, too), and have an outrageously good time!

Our TAKE THE MIC Karaoke Contest is open to singers of all abilities (aged 18 years and over) and is free to enter.
You will be judged on your presentation, vocal ability, confidence in your performance and audience appreciation for your song choice. Bring your friends for the heats as contestants will also get through to finals based on audience votes!
