  2. Kevin says:

    YES, but max. four performers per group. Make sure to do a better job by adding images, slideshow or video to your recording on Make it worth my while giving the entire team points.

  3. Kevin…

    I’ve tried to sing @ singshot before, but when I reviewed, it was either the music faster than my voice, or the other way round… How??? Is it because of the internet connection??? 😦

  4. Kevin says:

    Ceilla, maybe you could try it in the school lab or on your friend’s computer. Try a duet if necessary 😀

  5. @ Kevin: Ahhh the sytem down!!! I couldn’t save my song, and it’s the best that i’ve done so far!!!! sob… 😥

  13. Must we submit recordings that were recorded from 10th April onwards? Can we submit songs we’ve recorded prior to 1oth April? Say..23rd March 07?

  14. Nur Liyana says:

  15. theory says:

    Man, I really hate the lag in Singapore. It’s killing all the fun we have in Second Life and Singshot. I’ll give credits just for trying don’t worry.

    Also, please tag your recordings with “com125idol” on, otherwise it won’t be entered in our contest. If you tag it correctly, it will appear here for us to rate:

  26. Kevin.. i can’t embed my recordings too.. Im having the same problem…

  27. Hans A Yamin says:

    you know wat? I’m really getting sick of all the &^#$^% involved in this mission. All recordings done are out of tempo, and now they can’t even be embedded on my blog. Whatever, I’m outta this BS. Mr.Kevin, I hope you would be able to take note of my participation on this one although it’s not on my blog. I’m sure you can see who did it on singshot itself.

  28. theory says:

    Hans and gang, don’t worry about the embed problem. If you remember Murphy’s Law, anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Try to have fun, even if it’s out of tempo. 🙂

  29. Jose says:
