Finland: Karaoke stars need jury's love tonight at world champs

The Karaoke World Championship 2013 kicked off Thursday in the freezing Finnish settlement of Rauha, giving 40 participants from 20 countries the chance to show off their singing skills to a panel of judges.

Participants performed a range of classic ballads, ranging from Whitney Houston to ACDC and Elvis Presley.

Day two of the three-day competition begins Friday, when 20 participants will be eliminated. Those who impress the judges enough to make it to day three will face one last battle for entry into the final round, during which the remaining 10 participants will compete for the crown.

The annual contest, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary, is the world's biggest karaoke event. Entrants in the championship have to make it through national trials in order to participate in the finals.
