"There are three nights in which people can compete for one of nine spots in the finals night," American Legion Post No. 2 Treasurer Tammy Young told The Brazil Times.
The contest takes place May 29, June 5, and June 12, with the finals June 19. There is a $10 entry fee and registration is from 6-8:30 p.m. each night. The contest will begin at 9 p.m., and will go until all singers perform. If contestants don't make it the first time they can come back another night and only spend $5 to try again.
Scott Brown, Jena Lalen and a mystery judge will rule on contestants.
Professional singers and lip-syncing is not allowed. Participants must be 21 or older.
"The proceeds from the event will go to support our local veterans," Young said.
Ugly Knees Karaoke will provide equipment and each contestant will be judged on his or her appearance, voice quality and entertainment value.
First place will receive $500, second place $300 and third place $200.
If patrons are too timid to take the stage alone, Young says not to worry because duets are allowed.
"Some people would rather sing together than individually and that's OK," she said. "We want to make sure the community knows because it is going to be an amazing event."
