Bitcoin: An Idea Worth Spending

As if the title of this thread needs an explanation.

I used to date a woman who now owns a Karaoke Bar in West Memphis Arkansas who I bet I can convince her to implement the following idea, albeit her husband doesn't learn that I used to do her.

Prior to a weekly karaoke contest, the host doles out exactly $1 USD or 1 BTC to everybody having a smartphone, which they pay the current exchange rate for. This may take an hour, but that'll be the host/emcee's job, nonetheless. During the course of the evening, those with smartphones vote with Bitcoin. At the end of the evening, the winner receives 50% of the total coins votes, all the other contestants get to keep 40% of what was voted for them, and the remaining 10% goes into a pool for the monthly/quarterly/yearly contest(s).

The beauty in this idea is that many times a regular terrible karaoke singer gets nothing for his or her efforts, yet they're the ones that patronize the establishments offering up a karaoke night the most. Hell, even if they only received an equivalent to a nickle, they'll feel as if they won something, tell their friends, and soon there'll be two shows a week.

Most the times, these shows are structured on the premise that the owners of the bars pay a karaoke DJ, and their tasks is to bring in and maintain a following. Sure, there's been karaoke contests before, but after a while, even these are perhaps becoming a tad stale. Ain't it about time to disrupt the current model?
