Special thanks to @krystle, @passion-ground, @meno, and, @verbal-d for help judging the contest this week. Great job guys.

Steemit Open Mic is not about winning or losing, it's about building a connections on Steemit through music. Watching the collaborations happen online between musicians who played and met on Steemit Open Mic is very rewarding and many of the people who play and post earn some nice rewards for playing a song.

For many, it's easier to get some Steem in your tip jar by playing for Steemit Open Mic than it is to play music on the street.

STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 101: Queen of Her Realm (Original song) Unplugged right from Nature --- by @yidneth

Steem's very own magical fairy is at it again. I think it's been months since I've seen her entries on the openmic, but I knew after thirty seconds in this entry would place this week. The word magical falls short, the beautiful voice just soars over the heavenly strums of a harp. What else is there to say? - @meno

The ethereal enchantress has mesmerised us once again with her celestially gifted vocals and delicately light and emotional harp playing. The visuals for this entry are naturally stunning and full of real beauty of what the world has to offer, as well as the captivating music that a soul, who is connected to nature on a deeper level, is able to create and deliver with cunning and intentional flawlessness. This dream state is encompassing and encapsulating as it is vividly temporary. Definitely will need to repeat this one to re-experience the majestic sounds being released here. It leaves you wanting more each time, a lingering desire, not often fulfilled with music that awakens the spirit and soul quite like this. - @verbal-d

You have captured our attention, our hearts and minds, your music is like a spell you cast over the listener - they are bound to the beauty you have created and with it you have the power to show unseen worlds you create with your sheer talent.

Your music both breaks my heart and gives me hope, it is just so unique and amazing - I cannot get enough, you must never stop creating this musical magic the world needs it more now than ever. - @krystle

2nd Place

You won 40 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Week 101 - Entra (Original Song) | DTube Music --- by @ilazramusic

Ilazra crushed it this week with his bluesy, soulful, sultry, and passionate composition, “Entra! Ilazra’s melodies, execution, musicianship, vocals, engineering, and production are stunningly brilliant! The work he puts into his music, artistry, and posts is second to none – and that’s why he’s first! - @passion-ground

Describing this man's talent is very difficult for me. But it's probably enough for me to say that I don't know how he is not touring the world. There is a collection of his songs at this point in time that just get stuck in my head and refuse to leave. - @meno

I'm convinced you are a hit making maestro. Literally every song you produce, perform and layer comes out so intensively woven together and full of passionate melodies and creatively fresh material. The best part is how you sing your heart and soul out every single time. I can even see your love and care for the music you create, and it is something I highly respect and admire in an artist of your caliber. This song is real, profoundly moving, soulful and moment making. Keep making powerful impacts in our Open Mic Community and the world at large brother, you are on to something long-lasting and worthwhile. I gotta get you to collab with me on a heavy jazz hip hop track one of these days. Thanks for sharing this emblazoned gem with us all. Looking forward to your next one! - @verbal-d

3rd Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit openmic semana 101 - Jose Cabrera - Tornasol - (con moccamonica) --- by @joseacabrerav

Two of my favorite Venezuelan musicians collaborating on an original track, WHAT? I knew I was in for a treat, I knew it. Monica and Jose are suber vocalist, and the band playing along with them sounds so tight, so cohesive, that this performance requires no tweaks, no adjustments at all. - @meno

This was a fire collaboration inferno. I was really happy to see you two, @joseacabrerav & @moccamonica, burning the competition together, leaving an intertwining blaze of musical embers and sweet, hot notes. This original is a treat for the ears as much as it is for the eyes with your superb visual qualities and well balanced band skillfully backing your every notion. You both had great charisma, delivery, performance, energy, passion and chemistry. An instant hit with high replay value, easily one of my favourites from you both. I was in full vibe mode on this one. Wonderful music, thank you for sharing this gem with us all. You'll have to work together more often for sure. Looking forward to the next winning song. - @verbal-d

The whole entry and performance was spectacular, you all know how to put on a show - the sound was just spot on and with live performances with so many instruments it's to have someone overpowered or under-powered, you guys just nailed it in ever single way. - @krystle

4th Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Week 101 Por Si Existes By Mayneth Original Song --- by @mayneth

Honestly, this is not the first time @mayneth shows us how talented he truly is. Aside from the performance being superb, the composition itself is stunning. How he flows on the keys as he tells a story reminds me of the greats. - @meno

I present to you, Sir Mayneth, his Piano, and a long-lost composition of his own making. These three basic ingredients may seem quite simple; however, there is an abundance of very special sauce inherent in Mayneth’s musical, artistic, and creative nature. “Por si existes” is a passionate song of yearning for a love that is nowhere to be found. Something I’m certain we have all experienced at some or many points throughout our lives. Bravo, Sir Mayneth! - @passion-ground

5th Place

You won 26 Steem and a 5-Pack of Steem Monster cards.

Steemit Open Mic Week 101 Atardecer Vals Cezanne Y Sus Amigos --- by @cezanne

Wonderfully performed cover. You all did such a great job interlacing your musical skills and the layerings of the sweet textures of both of your vocals with the enthralling sounds of the humbly contented guitarist made for an addictively pleasing euphonic experience. Those harmonies ignited excitement and were really fine tuned and delivered with care. You all possess really tremendous talent together and this was an entry that could not be left out of my top 5. I had to highlight your remarkable performance and give you your just due credit and praise. Thank you for bringing to light this cover which you completely embodied with grace and poise. Definitely looking forward to what you all perform next. - @krystle
