Scary-Oke Karaoke Night News

We had a great time last night, Oct 29th, at the VFW for Scary-Oke. It started slow.. but we ended up with a big crowd after 9, and even stayed til almost 1AM.

There were lots of singers, and some great costumes. Photos will be posted as soon as my photographers send them.. LOL.

Best costume went to Erin for her cool Lady Gaga outfit, third place went to Christine for her scary Witch, and second prize was a tie for Tim and David. The VFW provided cash awards to the costume winners, as well as snacks for the crowd.

Some of our singers included Ginny, Pat, Deb, Kathy, David, George, Penny, Mel, Christine, Wayne, Betty, Taylor, Erin, Snooki, Patty, Julia, and Cecil.

Mel brought the house down with her rockin' rendition of "Me & Bobby McGee".. she was channeling Janis Joplin. A big crowd favorite was Kathy & Ginny doing "Monster Mash," and Taylor & Erin singing "Stuck Like Glue."

Blake Shelton to be Inducted into Opry

Grand Ole Opry | Blake Shelton's Induction

The Grand Ole Opry made a historic invitation on September 28, and the 85-year-old radio show did it the modern way: by Twitter.

After performing "Hillbilly Bone" with Trace Adkins, tweetin' fool Blake Shelton was told he'd just received an important message via Twitter. A screen at the back of the stage displayed the note from @opry: " @blakeshelton, you're invited to join the Grand Ole Opry. See you on 10/23/2010!"

With that 69-character invitation, Blake became the first new member added to the cast since Montgomery Gentry joined the Opry family 15 months ago. He gave an ecstatic hug to Trace, then a figurative tip of the hat to the crowd.

"Man, it takes a long time!" he exclaimed. "I know a lot of guys that want this just as bad as I wanted it and, uh, forget them!"

11 Karaoke Songs No One Wants To Hear
A panel of experts offered 25 NEW tips for fail safe singing situations, including karaoke. Beyond their advice, someone who steps up to the mic at a karaoke bar should start with picking a song people actually want to hear, and one that they already know. One note is to remember that you are in a club full of people who are there to have FUN. Ballads are a big no-no, as well as show tunes, and these tunes, which will have people scrambling to the door faster than Last Call!
