NOTE TO SCAMMERS: I have closed most of the holes scammers have found to cheat the contest except for one. Now people are stealing valid entries from the current week and entering it as their own thinking that because the person in the video says the words Steemit Open Mic Week (current week number) that I will not notice it was already entered. This is the worst form of cheating possible and I have started flagging those caught doing this.

From now on, anyone entering Open Mic must say Steemit Open Mic Week Number (current week number) and their username to have a valid entry. This is to stop scammers from stealing your video and entering it as their own.

It is very important to say the words "Steemit Open Mic Week 87" AND YOUR USERNAME at the beginning of your recorded video. Posts without those words spoken in the beginning of your live, recorded video do not qualify for prizes.

Steemit Open Mic Process

Keeping it short and sweet, here is the flow of considerations for the Steemit Open Mic contest:-

  • Need to promote community participation in the spirit of Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. Steemit Open Mic submissions in comments, community voting and reblogging are encouraged.

  • However, we need to avoid public vote abuse and keep a certain standard for Steemit Open Mic night.

  • So.. community voting as the first filter, before internal voting.
  • Another problem: late submissions are usually disadvantaged as they get less attention on the contest post.
  • So.. we've tried to mitigate such a problem by including unique votes of Steemit Open Mic submissions in their own blog posts.
  • IT IS CRUCIAL WHEN YOU RECORD YOUR VIDEO THAT YOU SAY "STEEMIT OPEN MIC WEEK 86" AND YOUR USERNAME AT THE BEGINNING OF YOUR VIDEO

  • We're looking for real live musical performances for this contest. Some people have posted old videos from YouTube and it's difficult to verify that it's really them performing. They will be disqualified from the contest.

  • If you want a chance to earn the prize, make a new video and say STEEMIT OPEN MIC Week 87 at the start of it.

.

How To Enter Steemit Open Mic Night

New Music Category Communities

Music Category communities are coming together on Steemit and if you're a music lover, please show support and join in the fun. Here are a few new places to find great music.

Suggestion: openmic must be the first tag to enter open mic, but adding other music-related tags (such as music, music-trail) may help your post get more attention and perhaps even get curated by those music curators.

If your song is an original song, add orginalmusic as your 2nd tag. This will help curators know it is an original song which currently pays a Steem bonus to you.

Thank you all for the participation!

To those trying to scam this contest, and Steemit in general, you will be banned and flagged when I find you

These accounts, all from the same guy. He just created them and used them all to enter Open Mic Week 87 and upvoted himself with all his account. That kind of behavior is unacceptable and he is banned for good from playing Open Mic:

@clodovea
@rollingbottles
@upmey
@montana-msc
@ghost-7
@water-up

For those of you following the Open Mic Trail none of your votes were wasted upvoting any of these accounts with the exception of the 1st one in the list which the trail followed since I upvoted it before discovering all the others. I suggest you go there and remove your votes. We got your back. I see that some of you in the Open Mic community upvoted him by mistake because he actually sounds pretty good, but he's cheating and we don't want to support that here.

Check out the comment I left him LOL

P.S. - I don't usually upvote my comments or posts but thought the community should see this. So I upvoted it to bring it to the top of the comments. If later, others upvote this comment to make it rise to the top, I will remove my upvote to my comment.

P.S.S. - This is the same guy too @musictime. Unfortunately, we all upvoted that one this week. Sorry guys. I have removed my vote from his post and flagged him.

Hey Steemit Open Mic. It's been a while, but I'm back this week with another song and a huge life announcement! Click my post to find out!

Hi @luzcypher
Back in the swing of things after working on tracks for my up coming EP.
Here's a different approach from me this week.
I hope you all enjoy it.
Thanks
Darren


·

Wow, mind blown!
Excellent song Darren, I would buy that EP.
I'm hearing Levon Helm and the boys in the Band, is that one of your influences?
Anyhow, Great Job!

·
·

@wethepatsies Hey there! Thanks for your awesome comment!!! I can't say I'm a fan of Levon Helm!
Cheers for watching and listening!

·

Great to see you've stuck at it with regular content! I need to do the same.

Did you ever look into whether he was wrong or not?

·
·

Hi Sam! Long time no see mate! Who was wrong it not chap? I don't follow?

·
·
·

Sorry that didn't make much sense - I meant whether the guitar cost 15,000, whether he was wrong or not!

·

Great voice and solo! Really good job!
The sound is clear, really nice recording!😉

Cumbia Fusión. Parte de mi proyecto musical incluye La cumbia venezolana, ya que es un subgénero musical de la cumbia colombiana. También me gusta explorar nuevos horizontes, enriquecer mi oído musical sin perder mi esencia y sonido propio alternativo.
