Red vs White Sing-Off

Kouhaku Uta Gassen is a popular singing contest in Japan, held annually since 1951 on New Year’s Eve. The invited singers are sorted in to the Red (female) team and the White (male) team, then perform a variety of songs on stage. The winning team is decided based on the judges’ opinions and the votes from the audience.

On 5 January 2019 starting at 12.30 p.m. we are bringing you the great sing-off of Mondocon. You may sign up on the spot between 10.30 a.m. and 12 p.m. by giving your name and the title of the song you wish to sing (anything from these lists, excluding songs marked as “LQ” or “Vocal”).

Everyone interested is welcome!

You may sing alone or in a group of max 3 people. Before the contest starts, 6 performers will be chosen randomly from the applicants (3 in each team, regardless of their gender). After the 6 performances, the audience may vote for the team they found better at the sing-off. Votes are accepted until 4 p.m. for either the Red or the White team, not individual singers.

Be part of either the Red or the White team and come sing your favourite song on the karaoke stage!
