Now I won't win, just wanna do good.

But big question to me, how will I hear myself during the performance. Like do I get earplugs or is the background music not too loud so that my voice comes out well and I hear myself ? Should I try to bring earplugs, if yes how does that work.

I feel like I sing better without the beat, and since this is an event I guess the music will be very loud. My first real karaoke, the one highschool thing doesn't count as well I wasn't practicing back then.

I'm singnig Umbrella - Rihanna and Scars - Papa Roach. I also am gonna isng only other songs as I got so bored of these 2 that I started to sing them really flat and emotionless. The comp is in 2 days so please respond as soon as possible. Also I think I should just do a warm up and sing only very lightly the day before and on the day of comp I'll just warm up a few hours before and not talk to much, right ?

Hear, at any grocery store or drug store, one can buy packets of foam rubber earplugs. Some made for construction work, knocking noise down 30 dB. A 20 db drop out to be good for karaoke. Plug only one ear. Many singers plug only one ear so that they can feel themselves blend with the other instruments.

Also, when rating decibel (dB) attenuation with ear plugs, they are not linear in response. For example, 10 dB cuts out a certain amount. 15 dB cuts out twice as much, even throu 15 is only 1.5 * 10. That sort of thing.

Consider also Musicians earplugs. Regular earplugs affect frequencies heard, even though covering one ear shouldn't affect as much, because the mind compensates.

Both Musicians and regular earplugs cause an occulsion (sp?) effect, which will make you think you're bassier. You'll need custom made earplugs for singers (about $200 and a skillful audiologist).

One unusual way of solving this, is to adjust for the DJ, by possibly pulling out custom made earplugs, if he doesn't play so that you can hear your voice.

Lastly, hearing your voice is a trained skill. If you practice a bit, you'll hear your voice despite the loud music.
