Special thanks to @meno for help judging the contest this week. Great job.

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 OpenMic WEEK 103 @paintingangels - Original song "Revelation" --- by @paintingangels

"@paintingangels you touch me deeply with every single performance. I need you to sing me to sleep every single night. My dreams would come in sweet. Just beautiful dear, lovely song, great voice as always, emotive and delicate, brings my emotions to the top of my skin. I love you girl" - @soundlegion

Serena just has a special gift, honestly that is all I can say. I've never once heard one of her songs that has not touched my heart. How is that even possible? I might have become her biggest fan. This tune is just too special. - @meno

You continue to release such beautiful and melancholic pain in the form of your raw and gripping music. Your sound is forever unique and your tales of sombre reflection, deep honest perspectives and daring storytelling are what make you a judge's and fan's favorite kind of artist. Aside from your natural skills, you embed true human connection within the poetic and melodic linings of your craft, and this is another gem worth a listen and such recognition and praise. You bring to life every word and keep the live performance aspect at a high end standard. Thank you for sharing and creating another moment to embellish in, looking forward to more of your originals without a doubt. - @verbal-d

It's music like this that lets me feel less alone in my own emotional state, it perfectly captures my current state in every sense - and yes this song makes me feel sad and want to cry more, but great music should make a powerful emotional connection. - @krystle

2nd Place

You won 40 Steem

STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 103 / It's the Story of a Love by @dianakyv --- by @dianakyv

" I love the sound of your voice. This is just beautiful. I remember you from past weeks and you really blow me away, I love the guitar company with your voice, just lovely." - @soundlegion

Wonderfully performed as usual both you and your highly superb guitarist friend @danieldedosd2. Your passionate and pristine performances truly show how great and consistently skilled you are as an experienced vocalist and captivating artist. Beautiful cover choice and your emotions are nearly tangible with how you carefully guide us through this songful journey. Thanks for creating and sharing this gem of a moment. Looking forward to what you perform next. - @verbal-d

I am simply enthralled by your stunning performances and incomprehensible talent and skill, the two of you are both phenomenal artists and we are so lucky to have you with us - as always I look forward to hearing more and soon! - @krystle

3rd Place

You won 26 Steem

Steemit Open Mic Semana 103 Cristmounicou Cover Aire Por Mecano --- by @cristmounicou

"awesome voice and I love the look, totally rocked it out, was killer cover performance."* - @soundlegion

I've seen a few of @cristomounicou's entries in the past few weeks. Every single time, If thought to myself this steemian is going places. I can tell she can command a stage, she's got that confidence you require to make people look, and listen. I took to listens to this song today, as I was getting ready to post this and thought... Yeap.. this is her best one yet. - @meno

From the instance that you started I was hooked, your playing was just divine and absolutely hooked my attention - then your stunning vocals came in and stole the show, just an all round brilliant entry. - @krystle

4th Place

You won 26 Steem

Steemit openmic week - 103 - Abel Fernandez - Im Yours (Cover) --- by @abelfernandez

This was a very clean and enjoyable performance, you layered your tracks very well and the visual quality was nice as usual. Your passion for music and this song in particular really hined through, especially when you didn't hold back on those rifts and adding noticeable characteristics to your smooth singing. Thanks for sharing this great cover song, looking forward to your next entry. - @verbal-d

I have to mention how awesome it is that you played all the instruments this week, what a kick ass job mate - the sound you created was full and textured perfectly, I absolutely loved every second of it. - @krystle

5th Place

You won 26 Steem

Steemit Open Mic Week # 103 - Classic N ° 2 - Creedence Clearwater Revival - Have You Ever Seen The Rain (COVER) --- by @juliolunar

Julio did an amazing job this week. I really enjoyed his take on this classic, and of course as big CCR fan this is right up my street. I was singing along the whole time. - @meno

to me the signs of a great performance and entry is just that, making people forget its a cover and loose control/wail out the tune with you - or maybe I'm just making up excuses as to why I was dancing round to this. - @krystle

Here's a screenshot of the prizes transferred to the winners this week.

Congratulation Everyone And Thanks For Playing Steemit Open Mic.

Hey @luzcypher, @krystle, @meno, @passion-ground, @soundlegion
I just want to mention something that is important to me and maybe to others and yes you may see this as kind of an complaint, which you seem to be a little bit tired of, as I can well understand. But this week many posts were missed, as you said yourself in some of the replies. So as it seemed to be a known problem, the missed ones appeared to only be readded after a "complaint". I waived that in order to be not one more person of that kind (and as I complant several times, because several entries of mine were missed in the past , some even in a weekly row). So this time I was trusting that the list would be fixed and a winner announced on that bases because of the well known problem. Unfortunately the missed ones were just let beside (excluding those who complaint) and the competition went on. My suggestion would be to take a little bit more time (if needed) but if a problem accures and is yet known, to solve it before continuing judging and competiting. This is just a bit to disappointing otherwise. And yes, I know this is all about community and not about winning. But it's still a competition that could be little bit more fair for this week. Here's our missed entry (although you've even responded "thanks for playing open mic" not on any see who played list):

I know how frustrating that must feel but believe me when I say I take a lot of time checking and double checking that I got every post. That being said there are things that happen on the blockchain that is beyond my control.

I can only vote for posts that I see posted with the openmic tag and even if someone posts everthing correctly sometimes for some inexplicable reason they still do not show up in my feed.

Last week the Steem blockchain was down, but this sometimes happens even when everyting is working normally.

Watch this video of me catching a post disappear before my eyes

When that happens there is nothing I can really do about it.

  ·  last year (edited)

Take a look at all the new posts under the openmic tag here:

Usually, we get new posts every 15 minutes or so. As you can see, the last week there were a lot missing from the feed, something I cannot fix myself and would not know who was missed unless they told me.

We are as thorough as possible but I can't do a thing about this issue. Hopefully, it will get resolved.

I get your point but what I can not understand is if you respond "Thank you for openmic" (what you did) still you claim to not have seen it because of invisibility adn therefore it's not on the list. If it was invisible why are you able to reply? That does not make any sense to me.
I will not bother you anymore. Thank you.


Because it was there that day I added the response but not on the day I make the weekly post. Somehow it disappeared. I do not understand either, but if I can't see it the feed I can"t add it to that post.

Please be sure to add a link to your post to the contest post and I will double check that post for entries to avoid that happening in the future.

You are aware that last week Steemit was down for several days and many posts did not go through. We did the best we could do in that situation.

Again, I apologize and will do the best I can going forward.

Estos resultados me traen recuerdos de la semana 85 cuando quede de segundo lugar tambien y justo Serena @paintingangels quedo en el primer lugar. Realmente estoy sorprendida y le doy las gracias primero a Dios, y a todos. Estoy feliz, sumamente feliz, este viaje en openmic ha sido lo mas maravilloso de mi vida, compartir mi trabajo con muchos en la plataforma es una experiencia única. Gracias a los jueces, muchas muchas gracias, mis respetos. Les mando un fuerte abrazo y sigamos trabajando con amor. Felicidades a todos los ganadores!!!!


Wouuuu. De verdad no saben lo contento que estoy con este post y sobre todo el resultado. Como dirían en mi tierra.
Que vaina tan buenaaa!

A todos le agradezco su apoyo. Un abrazo a todo el equipo @luzcypher @pfunk.
Al hno @passion-ground por todo su apoyo, @soundlegion, @meno, @krystel y @verbal-d por sus palabras, a todos un abrazo. Y se les quiere desde acá.


I hope this posts!

Saying I'm floored is an understatement. How did this even happen? My little entry post didn't even earn much more than $2 till now (except now is higher because thank you kindly to to Mr. @pfunk for his gracious upvote) and so I assumed it kinda was not well received.

This makes me so happy and I'm so grateful for the kind comments @krystle @soundlegion @meno @luzcypher, @passion-ground... thank you all and I believe there is so much talent here in this list and those who were not included as well. Would have loved to see @pechichemena up there.
Love to all of you. Hugs and cookies and goodness!

♥ I love @openmic
♥- Serena

The number of votes a post gets was never a factor in picking the top 5 just so you know. We loved your entry. Congratulations!

Oh wow I always thought that factored in! I know nothing about life. ha ha ha. Thank you whatevre the reason it means a lot. ♥

those are good ones

Bravo @juliolunar...

Congratulations to this week's winners! His works as artists are fantastic good luck to all

Awesome for my friends @dianakyv and @juliolunar. I also enjoy a lot @cristmounicou's everytime. Congrats! Greetings, @luzcypher.

Que bueno encontrarse con la noticia de ver a un amigo quedar en los cinco(5) premiados ¡Bravo! @juliolunar

Felicidades a todos los ganadores, bien merecidos lugares con exquisitos trabajos musicales.
Un abrazo!!!!
