With a catalog of over 9,000 songs from anime, video game, and Disney soundtracks, as well as the greatest hits from your favorite J-Pop, K-Pop, and American music stars.

The Karaoke Contest begins its first round on Friday at 6:00 pm, with finals at 9:00 pm, in which singers battle for victory and prizes before a live audience. The Acoustikaraoke contest begins Saturday at 4:00 pm, where instrumental artists (solo or group) perform original work or covers of their favorite anime and video game songs, and go head-to-head in a series of unique and talented performances. After dark, the Karaoke Gong Show brings the laughs starting Sunday at 10:00 pm. This 18+ event features participants going to bizarre and hilarious lengths to be crowned Worst of Show. Between these contests, the Karaoke room offers ongoing open mic karaoke, so no one misses out on a chance to simply kick back and have fun.
You can find the karaoke room open from 2:00 pm to 2:00 am Friday through Sunday, located in room 212 on the Concourse level, just across from the autograph rooms.
