“IT’S CONTEST TIME!” That usually means KaraokeFest is coming, but not this time. We have postponed the next KaraokeFest until summer of 2019.

Karaoke Scene Magazine is taking a break from KaraokeFest this year, and the related Crème de la Crème, Crème de la King, Crème de la Kids, and Crème de la Tributes competitions. Instead, our publication is running our sister SongBurst Contest; this year a category competition.

SongBurst has a few similarities with the Crème de la Crème contest. Contestants will be judging at Southern California venues. There will be a semi-final round at each venue to advance to the SongBurst finals.
