Thank you to all of those who took the time to watch my videos – and vote.

I have no clue how or when the winner(s) will be selected – and what we can expect in terms of prizes – but I’ll let you know for sure! ^_^

I learned about this singing contest only 3 days ago and hours away from the submission deadline!

In its second year, “NHK We Love Japanese Songs” let people from outside Japan record little clips of themselves singing the Japanese song of their choice. The clips are then featured on the website for everyone to watch, vote and share.

Last Friday morning, I recorded 3 clips – Moonlight Densetsu, Fuyu no Uta (Kiroro) and Time Goes By (Every Little Thing) and submitted them. Its only this morning that two of my clips were finally published on the website. Funny that they edited them to less than a minute each. When I watched the other entries, most were the equivalent of one verse and one chorus, so most of the songs were about one minute and 30 sec. I based my recordings on that frame as well… Oh well, they kept the best parts so its all good :)

VOTING is open till December 8th (or one day before for anyone in North America). I am pretty sure the number of votes is not the sole factor in determining a winner but I am sure it can help getting the judges’s attention! We are also only two contestants from Canada and I’d like to be supported by as many Canadians as possible lol!
