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 three posts because we have so many entries that we broke the post size limit on Steemit!
This post is part one and this is
To see all the entries you'll have to go there too. The post was so big the website would not post it!
We had 604 entries this week of which 358 are valid entries! Awesome guys!
Not all of the entries are in these posts though.
Due to the sheer numbers of entries this week we have only picked 252 of the best ones to put in these posts. If I included all posts it would require too many posts. Everyone who had a valid entry was supported even if you don't find your post in these pages and I hope you enjoy the diversity of music from around the world this week.
There have been a flush of new accounts downloading people's valid Open Mic entries, uploading them to a new YouTube account, and posting it as their own performance on their multiple Steemit accounts. Those will not be included and I have muted those accounts.
To the scammers doing this, muting your account means I will no longer see your posts so you are wasting yours and every one elses time continuing down that path.
We put a new rule in place that is designed to stop scammers, not singers as some people seemed to have interpreted this post.
Please bear with us as we deal with this issue and keep Open Mic about building a musical community on Steemit worthy of the talent you bring to us each week.
@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.
Special thanks to @curie for selecting and supporting musicians who have entered Steemit Open Mic.
Special thanks to @xeldal for generously delegating +20,000 Steem Power to the project.
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 steemreports.com 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.
