For Wednesday’s announcement, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot replaced her suit jacket with more flashy attire and offered a taste of her karaoke skills as the month-long competition is set to begin on Sunday, October 9.
Rick Douglas, the owner of Uproar Chicago in Old Town, is delighted that his venue is one of 18 venues across the city hosting the first round of the karaoke competition.
“One of our employees will do the assessment,” Douglas said. “I think it’s about crowning one person at each venue so the 18 finalists can go on.”
