Anime Idol: J-Rock/J-Pop Contest METROCON is once again hosting its annual "Anime Idol" J-Pop and J-Rock Competition for performers who want to show off their best song/dance routines. We've pre-selected the top 10 performers to compete at this years convention. The "Anime Idol" J-Pop and J-Rock Competition is for all anime fans that want to show off their best "American Idol'-meets-"Star Search" song and dance routine for all their fellow con-goers. Live, in-concert showmanship is the focus of the event as solo and group contestants attempt to recreate favorite performances by Japanese pop and rock stars - from musical ability to presentation. CATEGORIES: PLEASE NOTE: There is no sign up for this contest at the convention. Best in Show, Best Presentation, Best Technical, Judges Award.
Our largest room at METROCON, this room hosts our main events such as the Anime Human Chess Match, The Masquerade, and more, as well as our large-format contests like the Costume Contest and Anime Idol. With stadium-style bleachers, a live-feed camera to two 20' screens, and full concert-level lighting and sound, this is the main hub of entertainment at the convention.
