Detailed Stream & Competition Notes
The stream will kick off on the 3rd of December at 4:30pm eastern. This is when we’ll be going live and getting to everyone’s songs. The song order is later in this blog post, and that will be the locked in listening order on stream.
There are a lot…and I mean A LOT of songs. Bring snacks, maybe a full meal or two, get ready and let’s make this stream one to remember!
We are giving away a total of $380, and the prizes break down like this.
first place in both the good & bad category $100.
second place in both the good and bad category $50.
third place in both the good and bad category $25.
Smoke & Hannibal’s wild card prizes $15 each.
After we listen to all the entries we’ll announce the winners at the end of the stream. I have the contact info for Each person who submitted, and if they win a prize I’ll reach out to them through the same means they submitted their song to get their preferred payout method. This could be anything, paypal, zel, venmo, Remitly, game credits or gift cards, whatever the winners want as long as I can make it work.
We won’t be judging people based on their recording quality, but their performance. This doesn’t mean sounding exactly like the original, but putting on a memorable and outstanding performance for the chosen song and giving the listeners that emotional reaction to your abilities. This doesn’t mean the song has to be emotional itself, but that the performance has to be great, believable, memorable, and outstanding.
If all goes to shit at the end, and me and Hannibal have to fight it out to award the prizes. We may lean on the opinions of chat, so make sure to make your opinions heard, but try and be respectful of those in the good category who are putting themselves out for everyone to hear.
The official drink of this stream is once again a pina colada, so get yourself some pineapple juice, some cream of coconut, and white rum; then join us in raising a glass to the beautiful singing competition participants. If you want some help making your pina coladas, here is the recipie I’ll be using from tropRockIn.com.
Playlists Of The Original Songs
We clearly cannot listen to the covers until the stream on the third, but listening to the originals is perfectly okay and encouraged. If you want to know what is coming up on stream and what to expect you can use either the youtube or spotify playlists below. I did everything in my power to make these as accurate as possible, but not all songs are on both platforms.
- Listen to nearly all the songs in order on Spotify.
- Download a M3U playlist with all the songs in order on YouTube.
- (coming soon) Listen to all the songs in order on YouTube.
Special Performances Just For The Stream
We are going to have three special songs for everyone to enjoy on stream. These aren’t in the competition, they are only for fun.
The first will be me and Hannibal doing our duet of WAP by Cardi B & Megan Thee Stallion. This song won the auction where people could bid on what song we have to cover, and we are going to knock this one out of the park. There are indeed some hores in the house.
The second special treat will be a triet(yes I know triet is not a word) with myself, Hannibal, and Sarah Joyce Ocampo. This time we are combining our powers to cover We Don’t Talk About Bruno from Encanto. Why she keeps agreeing to sing with us for these is anyone’s guess, but she did it again. This one is going to be great and horrible in all the right ways.
Finally the last very special performance we have scheduled is a duet from last competition’s winners Buddah and Sophie. Since they cannot enter this time, I wanted to give them a chance to sing a song for the fun of it, and they both agreed. Buddah won in the bad category and Sophie won in the good category, so we are going to combine the last competition’s first place winners in a beautiful duet for the ages. The song they agreed to sing together is “A Moment Like This” by Kelly Clarkson. I’m not going to lie this may be the highlight of the entire competition, and I cannot wait for everyone else to hear this piece of art.
We are normally a comedy gaming stream, but for this we are replacing the gaming part with music. We are quite R rated simply because this is how we are as humans, and we don’t change on stream. We tell jokes, we have some drinks, and most of all we are about having a good time. If you don’t normally listen to our streams, just let the regulars in chat ease you into our craziness. The whole point is to have fun, so grab your pina colada, stop by, and join us for the ride.
The Stream Listening Order
I numbered everyone as they submitted their songs. Then after submissions closed I split the list of the entries into a list of good and bad covers. Each one of the lists was then randomized with random.org’s list randomizer. Since there are more good than bad the first few randomized good songs are back to back at the beginning, and the last few are back to back at the end, but for the vast majority we will be alternating between good and bad each song. The below order is the same order we will be listening to the songs in on stream.
11. Dni I Nochi by Babek Mamedrzaev (covered by Storm Productions)
Note: The actual song is in russian but is written in latin letters here
Dni I Nochi on YouTube.
Dni I Nochi on Spotify.
That’s a whole lot of songs, and we are going to blow through them all. Some people have said do two streams…Hannibal even said do two streams; but I refuse. This is going to go down as one of the greatest BSG streams to date. A time when we forget about all the shit in the world and gather together to enjoy the music people have entered with. The good, the bad, the beautiful and the horrible will be appreciated, and we’ll all remember it as the longest damn singing competition stream we ever did. Make sure you don’t miss this one ’cause you’ll never see another like it.
