A great big thanks to @xeldal who delegated over 20,000 Steem Power to my account in support of Steemit Open Mic. Great news for people entering the contest because now an upvote rewards you more.
When asked why they delegated Steem to my account the response was:
I've got it just sitting here and I'm thinking it does more good for everyone if I delegate it to people who bring life to the network. Plus, it makes me happy.
We all thank you for that.
A big shout out to @pfunk for sponsoring Steemit Open Mic and getting the word out with his post titled, Hey Did You Know There's A Weekly Steem Open Mic Contest --- by @pfunk
I just want to remind everyone that votes are only part of the selection process. Entertainment value and performance is factored in too.
ALSO PLEASE REMEMBER TO SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 57" AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO ON NEXT WEEKS ENTRIES If you don't say that you will not qualify for rewards (other than what your post makes) for this contest. Very important. Some of you would have won the last few weeks if you would just remember to say those words at the beginning of your video.
Also, remember to start your post title with the words "Steemit Open Mic Week 57" so we can find your post easily in the feed.
If you are playing an original song please add the word "Original" in your title somewhere so we can find you and award you a bonus.

The coolest thing about Open Mic is it brings the Steemit community together and that is the whole point of this project.
Thanks to @pfunk for helping to sponsor Open Mic and he's even generously been giving Steem bonuses to participants posting original music. You can vote for @pfunk to remain a Steemit witness by clicking here and voting for @pfunk.

Steemit Open Mic Judges
Steemit Open Mic is not about winning or losing, it's about building a connection on Steemit through music. Watching the collaboration 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.
