If anybody going to be at the karaoke tonight, I'll be the Black Panther singing. I was also there last night as Black Panther,  I did Pony and the night before that I was alternate universe Superman and I did Purple Rain.

You killed me!  Unbelievable!

You did an amazing job on Purple Rain, the KJ LOVES Prince so, this was a treat for him.
I was sitting in the back with the Sho'Nuff crowd enjoying your groove.
You definitely have an amazing voice!

Thank you again I'm glad you you enjoyed it. I must come back next year DragonCon was a blast for me and learn a lot and will be even better. Sho Nuff Entertainment  was the icing on an already delicious cake call DragonCon. If your there next year don't be a stranger and come introduce yourself, I'm always happy to meet new people.

There you go getting me all excited, which I already was because it's almost time for DragonCon. But by adding that the karaoke is returning that makes everything just a little more better. I will be returning this year and I will be singing my heart out and enjoying myself in all of the DragonCon activities. But for those who do not know, I have a soft spot for music, singing, dancing, and karaoke especially when I can be in full costume and live a fantasy life while doing it. I hope to see you guys at DragonCon and at the karaoke, let's cheer each other on.

As a foreword...   I am NOT an avid karaoke'er.

I have noticed that there are quite a few karaoke events going on at DCon.  I have never been to any of them(but have walked by one that I believe used to take place on the lobby level of the Hilton).
What is the appeal to doing this at the convention?  Why has it taken off at DCon?

I'd like to hear personal experiences, and why this differs from karaoke events at your local neighborhood bars.

Sho'Nuff Entertainment does the karaoke at the Hilton.  It used to be in the lobby but it was moved to the gaming area last year on the first floor.  They will be there again this year.

Although I don't sing- I love karaoke, I love watching people sing.  It is a fun experience at DCon and it brings everyone together.

Well it's like this for me I love music, comics, sci-fi, movies, etc. And when I can combine those things together it's a win-win situation for me. It's just an added layer of DragonCon when you can combine and interact with those things together. The Karaoke gets kicked up to 1 million when you can see a superhero, a horror icon, a science fiction characte,r or whatever you can name belting out a tune. The karaoke usually also has a lively party type atmosphere while people are singing and enjoying themselves, while mixing and mingling, dancing, in their cosplay. If you enjoy any of this separately then you can enjoy this together, it's just more entertaining that way. Well that's my take on it, stop by check it out, maybe even join in the fun.

I think I may.
If there's a night that there isn't a band (I'm interested in) playing maybe I'll drop by there and hang out for a bit before heading back to the Marriott for whatever dance/rave thing is going on.

It does seem like a pretty chill and easy way to meet new people.

I received a <soft> confirmation from Sho'Nuff that karaoke will be at The Nikolai's Roof at the top of the Hilton.  Unfortunately there is only one elevator that brings you up there.  I will post if there are any other changes :(
