Welcome one and all to Otakon 2013's Otaku Idol. This is the 10th year we are running Otaku Idol, and we're going all out for you! We've got guest judges for our performers lined up, we've got bigger better prizes than before, and something else in store we won't divulge just yet.
What does that mean for all of you interested in performing in Otaku Idol? Well, for one, we're changing up the process in which you can submit your demo songs. For years now, you've asked if you can submit your demo song via YouTube, and after long debates, we are finally accepting your demo performance via YouTube. We will still take an mp3 or wav file of you recording your demo song, but YouTube submissions will also be accepted.
If you are interested in trying out for Otaku Idol, please follow these instructions on how you can record your own mp3 or wav file of your demo song, or create a YouTube video and send it to the proper email. Once you have created your own demo song, either by mp3/wav file or YouTube video, please follow these instructions on how to submit your entry.
Good luck to you all, and for those of you who want to cheer on your favorite singer, keep your eyes peeled to the Otakon 2013 schedule for when Otaku Idol will take place.
