Welcome to Colossalcon’s 11th-annual Colossal Idol vocal competition! This event is a performance-based competition built around the vocal talents of up to 16 participants who have signed up to sing their (and maybe your) favorite anime, video game, and other con-related songs in front of a panel of three judges through elimination-style rounds.
While everyone involved has some musical experience, both judges and competitors alike, none of us are professionals, so this is intended to be an informal, fun, and enjoyable event. Centered around the basic premise of “American Idol”, we offer prizes to our top performers, including a free badge to our 1st Place winner for next year’s Colossalcon! We are very honored to be able to offer a badge as a prize each year and we always love to have our previous-year’s winner back to perform during the Finale, too. That being said, even if you don’t wish to compete, we still invite attendees to join us as well, since the audience also gets the chance to pick a Fan-Favorite by voting on each performance themselves!
In order to participate, please read through and complete our ColossalIdol 2023 submission form. Applications are open through Sunday, May 21st.
Because we have more complex limitations on what songs are allowed, we have also created a Validation Survey (linked here for your convenience, but also linked in the submission form above) for those interested in performing, but unsure if the songs they have in mind are permitted.
If you need to contact us for any reason, we have several outlets of communication! The fastest way to connect with us is via email, but we also have a FaceBook and Twitter page, as well as a Discord server, where all of our participants, fans, and anyone else are welcome to chat about Karaoke, Idol, or any of our other potential programming!
