Thank you SO much @ausbitbank for creating the @openmic account and helping to get it funded with 20,000 Steem Power in under 24-hours! Awesome accomplishment that really helps us reward people who enter Open Mic.
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 60" 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 60" 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.

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.

and the winners are...
The level of emotion that @melavie is somehow able to routinely express is rather profound! The melodies she constructs alongside her clear lyrical acumen is nothing short of amazing! Yet, she’s just a girl in her bedroom - burning some candles and playing her self-composed music. I don’t know about you, but for me, such a miraculous combination of intense talent and organic purity is simply far too priceless - by any measure - to ignore! - @passion-ground
This was a beautifully haunting and enchanting performance from you. You are able to encompass a suspenseful storytelling aura to your sweet sounding and well-controlled voice. Your vibrato gave your melodies that extra chilling momentum that commands us to stay keen and truly tune in and listen to what you are conveying to us. Your musical talents and skills are certainly not an illusion and your impact on our contest indeed matters. Keep creating wonderful original songs and more success and growth shall come of it. This definitely deserves many playthroughs. Thank you and I look forward to your next entry. - @verbal-d
*This is a killer song and sung so fricken well, I just love the passion coming through your voice - you have range and control but it's the passion I just swoon for.
I was singing along with you from the first moment, I love the effect you're using on your voice - I love the sliding style that eases from note to note, it creates a wave within the song itself and the voice is what moves it.
This is a perfect example of how to sing a song, I don't mean technically (though I couldn't fault you) but how it builds and has a flow of its own with the music as accompaniment - for me the vocals were just so on point I couldn't resist but to place you, your entry is just so deserving.
You have wowed me a few times now and I really can't wait to see what you have in store for us next time, I look forward to hearing your entry next week - if you haven't already do yourself a favor and check her out now!* - @krystle
*You, without a doubt, sang and poured your entire heart out on this one. From your very first entry that I seen of you, I knew you would bring something special to our contest. I always commend original artists for their creativity, and this song is really heartfelt and moving. The chorus is an Earworm and makes us all want to sing along with you. When you incorporate your true emotions and feelings into music, you connect with your audience so much easier without needing to force anything. You certainly gave an influential performance both vocally and guitar-wise, so this and your growth of impact is what decided me to place you third on my list. Thank you for this entry, looking forward to what else you will surprise us with.. - @verbal-d
I for one thought that this cat, @g10a, was just a karaoke type dude. How wrong was I! He can most certainly play a guitar, compose a meaningful song, and sing his passionate ass-off! For all of that and more, he has earned my utmost respect. @g10a is the quintessential Open-Mic artist/entrant that I so love to embrace and encourage. I know what such encouragement might mean, as I for one, never had any such encouragement. If only I did, perhaps things might have turned out differently for me musically. Be that as it may, and apart from any such philosophical introspection, this is one pretty-darned good song and performance! And I hope that @g10a is able to maintain access to that guitar he managed to get his hands on, - in order to up his game, and follow his dreams! This guy rocks, and he’s a good guy… And that’s all that matters to me. -- @passion-ground
