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 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 284 entries this week of which 280 are valid and included in these weekly posts! Awesome guys!
You can read more about why all of the entries are not in the See Who Played weekly posts by reading Steemit Open Mic Is About Building A Community Of Musicians On Steemit Not About Winning --- by @luzcypher
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. You will be flagged, reported to @steemcleaners, and banned from entering Open Mic.
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.

Steemit Open Mic Week 86 Part 1
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) and your username 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.
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. They are posted in the order that they were entered.
