Not the Same Old (Karaoke) Songs

[Summer Guide] Competitors in Karaoke Fest’s Crème de la Crème tournament face a tough panel of judges

“I love Elvis, I love his music, and I’ve always liked to sing,” he says. “When they came out with the Crème de la King contest, it made me get more serious about it.”

Coco came in second in the finals last year, but in the two preceding contests, he didn’t place. What changed? He’d originally been singing wearing Elvis’s trademark sunglasses, but eventually learned that the King never actually wore his shades while performing. So Coco took them off and started to do a lot better. Turns out that in this contest for amateurs, you can’t afford to make amateur mistakes.

Crème de la Crème at Nadine’s Irish Mist, 16655 Pacific Coast Hwy., Sunset Beach, (562) 592-7000. First night of qualifiers, July 12. Sign-ups, 7:30-9 p.m. Tournament continues at various locations. For more information, visit karaokefest.com/2010/locations.html.
