Tenerife Loves Karaoke 2011


The grand final of 2011's competition took place on Saturday 14th May at Showtime, over 300 people turned up to cheer on the finalists, hosted by Oasis Fm's Jamie Drew, and saw some amazing performances from all involved (See below for songs sang in the final).
The judges had a really hard decision to reduce the final 14 (unfortunately Pari couldn't make it) to 3 for a sing off. After much deliberation Peter Kuehn, Paula Leeming and Matt& Luke made it through, and didn't disappoint.
All 3 acts were absolutely superb, but like all competitions the can be only one winner.
The final places were as follows:
1st: Paula Leeming
2nd: Peter Kuehn
3rd: Matt & Luke

Paula won the following prizes:
- 500 euros in cash.
- A 12 track recording session at Villa Studios.
- Agency contract with Tenerife's number one artist agency, Paul James Associates SL.
- Plus she will sing live at this years Tenerife Entertainment Awards.

Big thanks go out to everyone involved, all the entrants, all the venues, all the sponsors, all the judges, and especially to everyone who supported Tenerife Loves Karaoke!

Tenerife Loves Karaoke is meant for entertainment and fun for the pub and its patrons.
First rule of thumb - where common sense should prevail as the answer - so it shall!

2. You must not currently have a record deal or agency contract.

4. Each singer will prepare two (2) songs. The second song would be for the heat final if you are in the top 3.
5. While performing at Tenerife Loves Karaoke, your behaviour in the venue must be respectful and within the rules of the establishment, any disorderly conduct or drunken behavior will lead to immediate disqualification.
6. All singers will be required to use the microphones provided by the venue - no personal microphones will be permitted.
7. Costumes and props are permitted - extra people on stage of any kind and additional vocalists, even "un-mic-ed" are NOT!
8. Any damage or misuse of provided equipment (swinging microphones etc.) will not be permitted and may lead to disqualification.
9. You miss your turn on stage – you will get a zero for your song.
10. There will be public bathrooms and a small changing area if needed - but all are public and shared - so be prepared!
11. Any heat winner MUST be available for the Tenerife Loves Karaoke final on Saturday 14th May 2011 at Showtime.

2. Stage Presence: Ability to sell the song and connect with the audience, deliver true emotion of performance. OUT OF 10 POINTS!

In the event of any discrepancy - the judge’s decision will be final.

The top three (3) performers on the night will sing in that night’s heat final and sing their second song with the same scoring criteria applying.
