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.

I want to thank all the talented people that have made the Open Mic contest such a joy to host. It is a pleasure listening to everyone's music and getting to know you guys. Steemit is SO cool like that.

. This is going to be a lot of fun doing a big mashup to celebrate Open Mic's 2-year birthday coming up soon.

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 94 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 All! Here is my entry for this week!

It's an original song I wrote called "Long Way Home"


To read about what inspired it, and see the lyrics, check out my Steemit post from yesterday linked below.

https://steemit.com/writing/@daily-musings/long-way-home-lyrics-or-daily-musings

I write songs in my head, and vocally as I drive. Good song. It feels like a driving song. Can imagine listening to the song as I drive past nature's beauty.

Thanks for listening! I do the same thing while driving haha. There's something about the privacy of the car and white noise of the road that is conducive to creativity 🙂

Hi everyone!

Here is my entry this week. I went Disney on you all! Here is my ukulele cover of Colors of the Wind from the Pocohontos movie.

saludos a Juan Carlos !!!

Thank you @luzcypher & @pfunk for doing this thing. You are giving me an avenue to express myself creatively every week. This week I am entering an original that is heavily influenced by Nirvana. It's called 'Your Name'. My friend Dustin Taylor and I wrote it when we were angsty teens absorbed into the cultural scene called grunge music. I have never quite recovered. 😎

https://steemit.com/openmic/@acousticsteveo/06798bjx

Dang it @luzcypher, round and round and over and over in this post you say the same things...
Week 94 HAS CLOSED, so when can I post my entry for week 95?

I didn't see anything about when the contest STARTS (I think I remember something from WAY back that you need a day off, so it starts over on Sunday, but I can't find that anywhere)
Please let me know asap so I can be one of the first to post in the new contest with my new camera set up ! Woo Hoo!

I've even got the new logo page for tomorrow counterfeited for you ha ha @luzcypher

The contest post is right here. The start in end dates are in each of these posts written 3 times so people will not miss it. All you have to do is read it.

https://steemit.com/openmic/@luzcypher/steemit-open-mic-week-95-record-your-performance-and-win-steem-sponsored-by-pfunk-and-luzcypher.

Also in this post there the rules explained for the last week a 4th time. It's the same every week, only the dates change.

@luzcypher, I don't want to be argumentative.
What I am saying is, I came LOOKING for a 'week 95' post on
SATURDAY NIGHT.
It was not there. If I now go to the link you have posted for week 95 and post my link, will I then be in the contest for this week? Week 95 @luzcypher?
Week 94 showed the dates 15-20, so I SURMISED that 95 would be
22-27.
I modified my own image from the one I had for week 89 to match
what I thought should be for week 95 SATURDAY NIGHT.
I did all this SATURDAY NIGHT.

When I got up SUNDAY MORNING at 6 am I came looking for a week
95 post for me to put my entry on, I searched for a week 95 post at
6 am and I didn't find one.

As I said, I had never seen the part one and two thing, so I thought that something may have changed, and I went ahead and posted my entry HERE, in week 94.
So if I now go to the link you have posted for week 95 and post my link, will I then be in the contest for this week? Week 95 @luzcypher?

I did post my link for this week 95 in the correct post later in the day on Sunday.
Thank you @luzcypher

@luzcypher is my entry <3
