Karaoke

Whether you sing in the shower or on the radio, you’re welcome on FanimeCon’s karaoke stage! With our jaw-dropping catalog of literally over 9000 anime, video game, J-Pop, K-Pop, and Disney songs (most with lyrics in both their native language and English), plus a full American karaoke system, AND the ability to plug in your own tunes, our karaoke set up has it all. Don’t forget to check out our fun karaoke contests, where your voice may win you big!

When we’re not running Open Mic Karaoke, FanimeCon features four scheduled contests:

  • The Karaoke Contest
  • UKFC: Ultimate Karaoke Fighting Championship
  • Acoustikaraoke! Contest
  • Karaoke Gong Show!

The Karaoke Contest

Are you a talented singer prepared to give it your all on-stage? Can you hit the highest highs and the lowest lows? Can you carry a tune, or will you just be dragging it through the mud? The Karaoke Contest is the place to put on a great show or join us for one in the audience. Beginning on Friday night, with the preliminary round starting first, followed by a short break, and the final round after (check schedule or room for exact times). Competitors can sign-up online before the con OR sign-up in person when the Karaoke Room opens. Contest rules do apply.

UKFC: Ultimate Karaoke Fighting Championship

This is a contest that’s less about voice, and more about guts!! Can you sing something from Sonic while running like Sonic? Can you fake an idol dance routine on the spot? And do you even want to know what happens when we bring out The Ball Pit? In the UKFC, Contestants face off in a tournament bracket of hilarious, music-based challenges that utilize every surprise in our songbook and every prop in our closet — literally. Contestants will be selected from the audience at the start of our game, so come early! Only one will claim the Championship Title at this very special FanimeCon premiere of the infamous UKFC!!

Acoustikaraoke! Contest

Do you play a musical instrument? Show off your own original work or special arrangement of your favorite anime or video game song on stage at our Acoustikaraoke! contest! Both solo acts and small groups are welcome. Sign-ups are open in the Karaoke Room all weekend before the event. Do not miss this delightful collection of FanimeCon’s most unique performances!

Karaoke Gong Show (18+)

Sunday night begins with the most foul karaoke journey ever attempted on stage—the Karaoke Gong Show! If your skin is thick enough and your mind twisted enough, then you’ve got a fighting chance at winning the dreaded Worst of Show! Yes, that’s right, these performers have what it takes to entertain, to amuse, and amaze our audience (and judges) with such unique and outlandish acts of comedy that they completely defy any explanation! Sign-ups are open at the Karaoke Room all weekend before the event. Due to how terrible these novelty acts (and the judges) are, this is an 18+ event.
