*Consumer Comment: That's Horrible
After all contestants, including myself, had finished singing our songs for the contest we were waiting for the judges to choose the winner. I was then approached by the owner in front of everyone and was asked to come with him. Upon following him back behind the bar and into a room, I was then accused of singing the same song in a previous contest to qualify.
The rules were that you couldn't sing a song that you've already done in the contest. I had explained that I hadn't done that song already. If they bothered to ask the dj, they would have known that.
As soon as they asked me that, I knew I wasn't going to win. The man they did choose sang really well but lots of people told me it should have been me.
Already embarrassed and angry about what they did to me, I learned a whole lot more to it the next morning. I had spoken to my sister who was also supposed to be in the contest but couldn't make it cause of being out of state. It was then when I learned just how mutch of a scam it really was.
She told me how the guy they had chosen to win was allowed to be a judge after qualifying. He purposly gave her low scores cause she did so well.
When I told my sister that he sang "Sweet Child of Mine", she replied, " That was one of the songs I qualified with". Isn't that against the rules? After all, that is what they were accusing me of!
I believe they set up a scam just to try to pick up business cause no one likes going there anymore. It was nothing but lies, cheeting, and ambarrassment. I will never go there again!!!
