Automotive Weekly – 10/14/17






 The Albany Auto Show, November 3rd through the 5th, at the Times Union Center, has just the right contest for you! Who doesn’t like to sing in the car?!  What if that car was a 1950’s T-Bird with the top down?  What if you could win $200, $300, $500 dollars?  The Albany Auto Show is partnering with FLY92.3 to bring you the Car Karaoke Contest on November 4th, live at the show in the Atrium, at 2 pm!

From now through October 25th, you can go to to fill out a registration form and provide a link to your uploaded YouTube file of – YOU SINGING!  It can be karaoke or just acapella (no background music required), or you playing your guitar or backed up by a full orchestra – your choice.  Our panel of judges will be looking at three things to decide which lucky twenty contestants will be competing live at the Albany Auto Show:  your voice quality, your “delivery” (personality, stage presence) and your selection (how appropriate and fun or meaningful for an audience of all ages).

Then, those twenty semi-finalists will be invited to come to the Times Union Center on November 4th and will be provided with entry for two people each (including the contestant) to the Albany Auto Show.  Of course, we hope your whole team of fans will attend the Auto Show!  These semi-finalists will take turns singing karaoke while sitting in a classic Thunderbird, while our panel of judges will consider these criteria to select the three finalists:

  1.  Voice Quality
  2. Delivery (personality, relating to the audience, stage presence, etc.)
  3. Audience Reaction (how well is the performance received, how much the song appealed to the audience, etc.). This is where your fans come in!

The three finalists will compete on a different song choice than in the prior round.  Winners will be immediately chosen and the winners will receive $500 for first place, $300 for second place and $200 for third place.  For singing in the car! 

So don’t hide your special talent alone in your own car!  Join us at the Albany Auto Show for this chance to shine in front of an audience and win cash!  And if you don’t like to sing, come to the show and cheer the singers on, and you, too, can have a chance to win a $200 gift card in our “I Clicked at the Albany Auto Show!” drawing!  For all of the rules and information on the Contest and Drawing, go to .  There is no purchase necessary to enter either the Contest or Drawing.

The Albany Auto Show will be held November 3rd through 5th at the Times Union Center.  Parking is free! Make a day of it with the Northeast Ski and Craft Beer Show next door at the Capital Center.  Both shows are offering a $2 discount with the purchase of entry, to attend the other show.
