Karaoke royalty at Gympie RSL
KING Keith and Queen Annie were crowned Monday night as the winners of the Gympie RSL’s King and Queen of Karaoke Competition.
Keith Souter and Annie Longmore won their crowns after a battle that started in early March and ran over eight heats.
During the heats, contestants needed to show their range with ‘50s Rock and Roll, Power Ballads, Country Music, Movie Themes, Australian Music, Modern/Popular Music, Judges Choice and Singers Choice categories.
Through out the heats judges Karyn De Vere, Linc Phelps and Bob Tryhorn, were honest, sincere and provided the contestants with constructive advice and helpful tips on the industry.
Finally, those in line to the throne were whittled down to six finalists all vying for a chance at coronation.
Guest judge for the final night, Taurean Thompson, provided a different aspect to the judging as he viewed each contestant with fresh eyes.
The finalists were required to sing in two rounds in two different genres with Keith and Annie finally claiming the crowns.
Sharon Cox, marketing and promotions manager said it was very much a team effort to get the competition up and running.
“On behalf of the club I want to thank everyone for their participation and wish them well in their future music endeavours.”
