Over the last week Open Mic was contacted and offered some more sponsorship from:

Not only do they also give weekly prizes to audience picked performers from the contest, but they have also started sponsoring Open Mic with a 25 Steem weekly donation! How cool is that?

And thanks to @meno's initiative the community has come together to support Open Mic. Many of you have created posts in support of the Open Mic community and have donated a portion of the rewards from those posts to @openmic so we can keep doing what we do, build a great community of musicians on Steemit. You guys are the best and we feel appreciative and inspired!

Operation We Are The Open Mic --- by @meno

Special thanks to @lukestokes for his delegation of 5,000 SP to the @openmic account. This helps each entry earn a little more for their performances.


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.

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 91" 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 91 at the start of it.

.

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!

Hi steemians, this is my entry for this week's edition of the steemit openmic. A jazz tune by Joseph Kosma. I would like to use this as a medium to call back those openmicers who stopped taking part for one reason or the other, for them to come back and feel the fun again.
The falling leaves drift by the window
The autumn leaves of red and gold
I see your lips, the summer kisses
The sun-burned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I'll hear old winter's song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Enjoy

Here is my entry, after a long travel and having no laptop with me, i am happy to be back again <3

You have a beautiful voice.

·

I love your song!

·

simply transcendental. I was captivated and taken. what a beautiful voice. more than a song it was an experience.

Hi open mic friends!

This week, I am singing I'm Yours by Jason Mraz. Thanks for listening! <3

·

Go @coruscate So nice to see you here this week!!!

I would like to enter the contest but I don't play an instrument. I saw a few of the older rules posts and they didn't mention the instrument requirement.

Why was that added?

·

It was added because too many people started entering by singing to karaoke tracks and I don't want to curate a karaoke contest. The focus of Open Mic has always been to bring a community of musicians together.

We do make exceptions if you sing really well and have a command of your voice like an instrument. There are also other contests on Steemit that focus on karaoke.

·
·

I was really thinking of entering acapella. I can appreciate your position regarding the karaoke-ness of it though.

I may enter in a coming week without accompaniment and if that means I'm disqualified then, so be it =) at least I got myself out there.

·
·
·

There are exceptions so give it a go. Also, there are other contests on Steemit that except Karaoke entries like Pitch Perfect.

You could also find a musician to play with.

Here at Open Mic we want to create a group for musicians who play musical instruments.

One more for the setlist! I'm happy to share one more original with you all. ,3

Hi guys! Here's my Open Mic entry this week.

Here's a song I wrote last week, when I got home from work.
My children were happily playing, and let me record it quickly before mauling me like an over sized man-child puppy!

Being a busy parent, with a full time job and love for song writing, I often find myself fighting for time, to get my head and heart full of ideas, out and down on paper. On those rare occasions that I get some free time, I'll even capture the audio and video.


I hope you enjoy my entry this week and thanks for all of your support!!!
