2011 Animusical Idol
In 2005, Wasabi Anime presented The Wasabi Animusical at JACON setting the stage for a new type of cosplay based convention entertainment experience. After three years, the team from Wasabi Anime opened the concept to fans to create their own Animusical style skits… thus Animusical Idol was created!
Animusical Idol will take place Friday (May 27th) at the convention.
- Friday, 5:30 PM (Main Events) – Sign up and prejudging for the show. You MUST go through pre-judging to make to the main show! Prejudging ends at 7:30 PM. No exception.
- Friday, 8:00 PM (Main Events) – Doors open for Animusical Idol. (Video featuring the original Animusical will be shown.)
- Friday, 8:30 PM (Main Events) – Animusical Idol
- Pre-judging takes place the afternoon of the competition/show. You MUST be at the pre-judging to qualify to perform that night in the main show. Depending on the number of entrants, not everyone may be allowed to perform.
- You will be notified before leaving the pre-judging if you are to perform, and you will also be told what time to arrive to set up for the show. If you are LATE your performance will be cut. No exceptions.
- The show is designed to be viewed by a general audience – so please make sure that your performance does not exceed a “PG-13″ rating.
- No nudity… at all.
- Keep props to a minimum. The more complicated your number is for us to get you on and off stage – the better your chance of NOT being picked for the show. Please keep it simple.
- Songs must be from either a stage musical or must be PERFORMED in a movie or television musical. For example: “You Lost That Lovin’ Feeling” from Top Gun is okay since it was performed in the movie while “Danger Zone” from the same film is not. If you are not sure about your choice of song, merely email email@example.com to ask. We’re here to help!
- It is recommended that your selected song not exceed five minutes. If you have a song that DOES exceed the recommended time limit, we suggest you email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for approval – just to be safe.
- Inappropriate behavior leading up to, before, or during the convention and/or show can lead to disqualification of your performance.
- Wasabi Anime reserves the right to amend the rules at any time.
