Announcing a very exciting contest:

Hey Blackjack Soompiers,

Are you an enthusiastic performer or artist?  Then get out the video camera and get out there!  Your favorite girl group is holding a video contest, and they want YOU to participate!  From today until June 21, 2NE1 will be accepting submissions for the 2NE1 Lonely Cover Contest on YouTube!

Here's the deal:


Why should you enter?

One, the members of 2NE1 will screen your entry!  (Wouldn't it be pretty cool if the four girls could see how talented you really are?) 

Two, the winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to attend 2NE1's first-ever solo concert this summer, as well as a personal tour of the YG headquarters!  Wow!

So what are we doing here?

Well, this thread is for you to discuss the contest

-- any questions, advice, or comments you have can go here.  And yes, it will be linked on the 2NE1 official website!

    Ok I have a doubt.. everybody in the comments are yelling that they don't have good voice but the image says "COVER VIDEO" so you don't have to sing right O_o?

    don't think you have to sing. it says 'amaze us with your creativity,' so you could sing, dance or pretty much do anything as long as you base the video off 'LONELY'

    hi, we had questions about this too, so we asked YG.  they said they want fans to freely rearrange the song and reproduce it as they wish, so basically it's both... it doesn't necessarily have to include both dancing and singing.

    hope that helps!

    I have a question. What does it mean by, "Team?" What if the person you want to team up with lives somewhere else and you live somewhere else? Would they accommodate the both of us?

    Another thing, do you have to show your face in the video?

    Thank you.

    hey there, this sounds awesome.

    But i'm confused with the rules, so does "cover" version mean we have to redo the song (as in sing, play or remix?)

    Can't we just use the original song and cut a musicvideo (dancevideo) based on it? or would that entry be invalid??
  • renKa002renKa002 Posts: 122Member
    When they mean cover, does that mean as long as we use the song... we can interpret it our own way? By either lip syncing or signing it ourselves, dancing, make a parody  or even just remixing the original video?

    Clarification on this will be loved!

    I really think this contest is great!!! But one question when you win, how about if you need your parent? Im under 18 so does that mean I can bring a parent or something I dont think my Mom is gonna feel comfortable of me going to Korea lol that sounds so lame but true :P

    Ok, more questions

    if we choice sing, we have to do it in korean? or we can sing in other languages?
    if we don't know how to play a instrument , we only can do it acapella?
    if my team live in different states is ok? or we have to live in the same state?
    and the last, we can edit our video? i mean record our audio and make a original video and then put it together?

    WOW! I'm really excited over this contest!
    I've done a cover 1 day ago! and here it is! :D


    Since the song doesn't have a drum-track, I've decided to add a little something to the music, and yeah! hope this is acceptable in the requirement of "free-styling in making of cover!"

    Hope you all will take a look at it!

    Ok it says all 2NE1 fans world wide but then in parenthesis it says nationality,
    but can you be of any ethnicity? I couldn't participate in something before because it was open
    for any nationality, but not any ethnicity. So does anyone know?
    2NE1 í™”이팅!!
