    For the long anticipated final between StrangerDanger and Carl we will be returning to the past three genres. As fitting for the two great rivals of the underground Smogon Karaoke scene we will be using great rivals in the pop, rock and rap worlds.

    StrangerDanger's setlist:

    StrangerDanger's Billie Jean
    Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode
    MC Hammer - U Can't Touch This

    Carl's setlist:

    Prince - When Doves Cry
    Carl's Blue Suede Shoes
    Carl's Ice Ice Baby

    For each genre there will be a separate vote, so each song will be compared individually to its rival. This allows you to vote accordingly if your opinion differs greatly, for example you prefer Carl in pop and rock, but favour StrangerDanger in rap.

    Again, Carl and SD, upload to mediafire and get it to me, I will make a youtube and put it in this post. Poll will be added when all songs are in.

    I forgot to mention, this is an official Royal Showdown; Carl and StrangerDanger are competing for three titles: King of Pop, King of Rock and King of Rap. Whoever wins the most of these titles out of the two of them will also win the title King of Karaoke.


    edit: neither i nor dak have ever mentioned opera as even a potential genre ever

    strangerdanger raises the microphone to his lips and parts them, making the eager crowd cheer. he takes in a deep breath, feeling the sweat roll down his forehead, tasting the salty sensation in his eyes and mouth. he breathes out and tries to sing... but the words just wont come out.

    strangerdanger runs off the stage, and carl looks at him with a sneer. first the crowd jeers at the fleeing strangerdanger, but then they lift carl into their arms and begin to chant, "carl! carl! carl!"

    carl is now official karaoke champion.
