Steemit Open Mic Week 65 - See Who Played Open Mic PART ONE - 201 ENTRIES WE HAVE TO MAKE TWO POSTS

in openmic •  2 years ago  (edited)

Steemit Open Mic is an online, live music venue to give musicians a chance to share their music with the Steemit community and get their music heard. It is growing larger every week thanks to all of you.

This week's entries have been split into two posts because we have so many entries that we broke Steemit!

This post is part one and this is Steemit Open Mic Week 65 - See Who Played - Part 2

To see all the entries you'll have to go there too. The post was so big the website would not post it!

The number of entries shot up from a record 153 last week to a new record of 201 entries this week! Awesome guys!

@pfunk has been sponsoring Steemit Open Mic since I first started it and I want to give a big thank you to him and all the people who support and take part in Steemit Open Mic.

Steemit Open Mic is growing so fast that a lot of people are entering without really reading the rules so I want to do a little house cleaning for those entering the contest.

The bigger this grows the easier it is to miss someone's entry post so following these rules makes us see you have entered so we can upvote you.

For more on the rules read, What Are The Rules To Enter Steemit Open Mic And Why Do We Have Rules Anyways?

Steemit Open Mic is a live music contest and we need to know that you are really playing or singing us a song for this contest in particular. That's why to qualify for prizes you must say "Steemit Open Mic Week" (next week number) at the beginning of your video just before you play or sing the song. If you don't or if you edit in later onto a prerecorded performance you will not qualify for prizes.

If your song is an original song then you MUST put the word "original" in your title. Original songs get a small bonus right now and it is easier to find all the original songs with the word added in the title.

The next thing that is very important it to begin your title with "Steemit Open Mic Week (the current week number)" and place that as the first words of your title or I may not be able to find your post at all.

Here is a perfect example of a correctly titled post to enter Steemit Open Mic for an original song.

This would be a perfectly titled post for a cover song entering the contest.

Theses posts are really easy to find in the feed and upvote them. They can easily be spotted so none of them get missed.

Also, @andybets from is working on a chart that is targeting those keywords to sort all entries by originals and covers.

It is SO cool and you can check it out with this sneak peak of the Steemit Open Mic Chart

NOTE: The order this chart lists the performances has no bearing on choosing the finalists. Just because a video is at the top doesn't mean they will win the contest.

Steemit Open Mic Week 64 performances are in and there's still time to vote for your favorites.

Great songs and performances this week. Have a listen to them below and be sure to show your support and upvote your favorites.

Hi, I'm glad to hear you're enjoying the music too.

@luzcypher, I'm sorry, I lost password of my previous account, here's my new one.

Fixed it. Thanks

Omgoodness....I don't know the solution; but, I scrolled through the first four videos, and knew there was zero way that I'd view 198 entries.

I'm glad to see the project is growing.

Best regards.


It takes days to listen to them all and it's fun. Thanks for the support.
