http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPulHdE=.jpgBeen to Get Music 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Entered Get Music for the first time

Simple achievement really, on the main menu go to the get music section. You don’t even have to upload or download a song just enter it. This achievement unlocks as soon as you get the "Get Music" page

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPrcHI0=.jpgWelcome to My Lips 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Entered My Lips for the first time

Similar to the Been to Get Music achievement. On the main menu go to the My Lips section. This achievement unlocks as soon as you get the "My Lips" page

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPj9FTg=.jpgTry Freestyle Mode Out 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Played Freestyle mode for the first time

Another Pretty easy one after uploading a song from you ipod, zune or any external source play it. It unlocks at the start. A thing I noticed is I exited at the start of the song and still got the achievement so yuo don’t even have to finish the song. Achievement pops up at the end of the song on the stats screen.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPkd7as=.jpgFight for the first time 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Sent a song challenge to a friend for the first time


See 'Defending Champion!'


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPpF5UI=.jpgOne Hit Wonder 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Sang 1 song in short or full

One of the easiest achievements in the game really. Go to "Sing!" from the main menu, and then select any song you like or know and all you have to do is sing it. Select either short or full, it really doesn’t matter. At the end of this song on the stats screen this achievement will pop up.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/-wUbEg==.jpgPlatinum Artist 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Sang 10 different songs

This one is simple enough; sing 10 different songs (not 10 songs total they all have to be a different song). An easy way of knowing what you have done is by either starting left to right until you receive the achievement or by going to my lips and on the first blade it will say now many unique songs you have sung.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/+WYBzQ==.jpgLips Anthology 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Sang 40 different songs

This one is simple enough but time consuming. Sing 40 different songs (not 40 songs total they all have to be a different song). An easy way of knowing what you have done is by either starting left to right until you receive the achievement or by going to my lips and on the first blade it will say now many unique songs you have sung.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/+qfw6w==.jpgI'm Kind Of A Big Deal 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Achieved the rank of "Infinity"

This appears to be the hardest if not one of the hardest achievements there are to gain in this game. It is still not quite clear how to gain this achievement but it seems you just have to max out the song. Most people when they get this have all medals (for both people if in co-op), a lot of stars and it seems to be a score in the high millions from about 4,000,000 up (bassically 100%). The achievement is to get to the rank 'Infinity' at the end of a song and this seems to be the way to do it. There is a disscusion thread here (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=106901) on the achievement.

TIP: The easiest way i have found that i got tot infinty on was "Bust A Move" you get bassically 100% by holding the mic to your TV (also remembering to turn mic volume down of course). You then have to bassically use noise makers and wave your mic around in the no singing sections of the song, which there are a lot of. All the rest of the medals should be gained for you by the TV. I think you achieve this rank (on solo mode) at around 4,000,000 (on the finally stats screen not in song!)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPlbzuU=.jpgWishing on a Star 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Gained 5,000 total stars

See “Superstar!”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPnxDjY=.jpgI'm full of stars 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Gained 50,000 total stars

See “Superstar!”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/-F0T+w==.jpgSuperstar! 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Gained 100,000 total stars

This one involves you just singing songs and the use of the star power you get. When it is activated you will see the stars increase on the left hand side (after star power has run out you can see your total in the top left of lyrics bar. A way of building up your star power quicker is to use the mic as a tambourine by tapping it on your hand or shaking it about. At the end of the song it will tell you how many stars you have gained. To get this quicker it’s quite simple really get a higher accuracy on each song whilst in the star power mode. You can see how many stars you have received by going to the My lips section and on the first blade the top stat will be a number with a little log of a star or something, the number is your total stars. There is a cap on the amount of stars you can earn on each song but it is not known what that number is yet.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPi7NnY=.jpg100x Medalist 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Awarded 100 total medals

See “500x Medalist”

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP0Z3Y8=.jpg500x Medalist 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Awarded 500 total medals

This one involves you just singing songs and you will get more medals the. At the end of the song it will show you the medals you have earned. To get this quicker the list of medals are here so try and do these during the song:
Pitch – Get accurate pitch.
Stability –Stay on pitch for the duration of the note.
Rhythm-Match your vocal rhythm to that of the song’s.
Party-Using the Noise Makes on your 360 Controller or Mic and being on beat.
Technique- Vocal expertise, i.e. using things like vibrato.
Performance-Successful mic gesturing during breaks in singing.

If you do all these things in the song you will most likely receive each medal.

You can see how many medals you have received by going to the My lips section and on the first blade there will be the little medals with a number underneath, each number shows how many times you have received that medal.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP7YLKk=.jpgRebirth of Cool 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Got "Cool" 10 times in a row

This is basically gaining a streak of “Cool”. The easiest way to get this achievement is by singing the song you know best and feel you perform best on. It will say how you did on the phase in the top right of the singing bar. This achievement will unlock during the song.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP841Do=.jpgWhat's Cooler Than Being Cool? 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Got "Cool" in every page

To get this achievement you have to get a rating of ‘Cool’ on each phrase. Now to do this you have to basically be good at singing and be able to perfect the song (almost 100% it). If you can’t do that and really need this achievement it is possible to basically not sing it. This is done by turning the volume on the Mic down to 0 (done by holding down LT) once it is down to 0 (basically the bar isn’t showing any white at the top of the screen) you hold your Mic up to the TV speaker (preferably the one with the louder version of the vocals coming out. Try to choose a song that has a pretty easy tone so the singing is easy to pick up. Watch the top right of the bar to see if you are getting ‘Cool’ If you aren’t either restart or chose a different song. This achievement pops up on the stats screen after the song. To turn the volume back up on the mic afterwards hold RT.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP3-OKc=.jpgI Got You Babe 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Participated in Co-op mode for the first time

This one is very simple play a song co-op together. Go to 'Sing!' from the main menu. Select a song you wish to perform and on the video selection screen go to options and select co-op, or an even easier way just as the song is about to start shake the second mic (if co-op is the current setting). If you don't have a co-op partner to do this with you could hold both mics and sing at the same time, or put one up to the TV.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP5B1WY=.jpgIn Synch 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Scored 1,000,000 pts in Co-op mode (Awarded to all signed in players)

To get this play a song in co-op and play a song you both feel you can do well on to achieve the highest score. Alternatively you could hold both mics to your face and sing both at the same time if you don't have a co-op partner (this way you can chose a song you know you can get 500,000 on), or put one mic to the TV.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPxg3NM=.jpgBattle Tested 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Played VS mode 10 times in different songs

Similar to the “Platinum Artist” Achievement. Sing 10 different songs in VS mode (once again it cannot be 10 of the same song; each song must be a different one). Also mae sure the game mode is VS and not co-op.

This achievement appears to be glitched for some you have to go down to the score attack mode if it doesn't work for you in normal VS. (Thanks FlamedLiquid)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP2AJEA=.jpgFigure 8 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Got 8 medals total in one song (Awarded to all signed in players)

See 'Full Medal Panic!'

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPnCNyo=.jpgFull Medal Panic! 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Got 12 medals total in one song (Awarded to all signed in players)

This achievement can only be achieved in co-op. To get this you need to get 12 medals. There really is no way to force this achievement you both have to do a song that you are very comfortable, familiar with and know you can get 6 medals on each. alternativly you could try and find a song that can get the 5 medals for you by putting the mic up to the TV and you can find the rhythm and do percusion for the last badge. You can do this for both mics to get this. See '500x Medalist' for the list of medals and requirements.


http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPvjPp8=.jpgClap Your Hands Everybody 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Noisemakers were perfectly in sync (Awarded to all signed in players)

To get this you have to keep a good constant rhythm on the Noise Maker that goes with the song. For this I sat there whilst singing and tapped LB. I did this at the same constant rhythm and the achievement popped. I wasn’t trying for this one so it was a lucky one for me but because im a musician I can pick up the tempo and play that by tapping pretty damn easy. If you are not a musician I suggest listening out for the bass or snare drum in a song and tap away with that. This achievement will unlock whilst in the song.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPiID2o=.jpgGotta Have More Cowbell 30http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Used the cowbell 50 times (Awarded to all signed in players)

To get this achievement, as you are selecting your song go to song options on the screen where select the video is. Go to Noise Makers and select Heavy. As the song starts press LB or RB on you 360 controller and after 50 hits you should get it. This will unlock during the song.

Tip: I did this on “In Bloom” I feel this song works well as it’s got a big space of time before the singing comes in for you to tap away.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/+j4JJA==.jpgThis is madness! 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Added 300 songs to Lips from external sources

This one doesn't really involve any effort and is an easy achievement. All you have to do is got to the 'Get Music' screen from the main menu, plug in your ipod, Zune or whatever external device you are using. Press the back button to change device and deselect everything apart from external hard drive. Then all you have to do is scroll through and select 300 songs and save them to your game, Simple. If you don't want the songs afterwards, go to sing and select them and then down to delete. This has to be done one by one.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP5y7Ho=.jpgThrow Your Hands Up 5http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Triggered a gesture in the Virtual Music Video

Once you have selected a song you go to the video choice screen. Go down one to Virtual Band and accept. To get this you just wave your mic around a bit and it will unlock. I achieved this about 1-2 seconds into the song. This achievement will unlock during the song.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPow-xA=.jpgRising Star 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Achieved a Grand Ranking of "Lounge Act"

This is something you earn as you play through songs. I got this after playing 5 songs (these are songs that I knew very well so I did pretty well on them). When you move up a rank, on the stats screen at the end of a song a box appears that is a bit like a chain ladder thing, all boxes above your current box are blacked out. Once you get to the 4th box you will unlock this achievement.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/+B8AkQ==.jpgBig Name in Lips 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Achieved a Grand Ranking of "Hit Maker"

This was achieved for me after about 30-40 songs it should be about the 8th one up in the ladder of rankings. Once you get to the 8th box on the ladder this achievement should unlock.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPvQB4M=.jpgCall Me Superstar 40http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Achieved a Grand Ranking of "Superstar"

This achievement is unlocked by getting at least 50,000 stars and 100 of the each badge type there is. There are 6 different badge types to collect. See '500x Medalist!' for medal breakdown. (Thanks to OldWIKI TIK & FlamedLiquid for this)

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/+f-4Ag==.jpgDefending Champion 25http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Got 20 challenge wins

This achievement involves you having to have a friend who is online that also has the game. If you don't have a friend with the game find one in this thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=86348). If you post a request for someone to help you get this achievement anywhere else in this site your thread will be locked! Once you have your friend you have to take it in turns of inviting each other and accepting the invite. Apparently this is possible to do on one xbox. All you have to do is create a second Silver account and add them to your friends list. Then it starts becoming awkward because you have to sign out of one account into the other to accept/send the invite, and well this goes on back and forth untill the achievement finally unlocks after your 20 wins.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UP7rFbU=.jpgLet's Get This Party Started 10http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Activated Jukebox mode. Will be awarded to all players who are signed in

The simple way to get this is to go to ‘Sing’ from the Main Menu. Once in there pick a song you like as you are going to have to sing it, rate it any number of stars but remember how many you rate. Then exit out back to the Main Menu. Once back there go to Jukebox and then whilst in Jukebox select faves followed by the star rating you chose. The second the song starts the achievement will unlock. You therefore don’t have to sing the song and quit out.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPlo9-k=.jpgFirst Kiss 35http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Participated in 2P Kiss game ranked as "Match Made in Heaven" (Except in Freestyle mode)

This is achieved in co-op in the mode kiss. To play this on the video select screen chosse kiss game. You have to get the people to kiss every time without no heartbreak. To achieve this as they get close to each other activae star power at the same time. They should meet in the middle and hug and kiss. This has got to be done in 2 player co-op and can not be achieved solo. This achievement will be unlocked on the stats screen once it tells you your kiss game ranking in the bottom left hand corner.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPtJ-kw=.jpgNice Duds 35http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Successfully stopped the bomb from exploding in Time Bomb (Except in Freestyle or Short mode)

Go to sing from the main menu. Select a song you can do well at or enjoy and pick full song. On the video background select screen chose Time Bomb. All you have to do is sing well to fill up the glass in the top left corner and then tilt the glass to put out the string that is on fire, keep pouring the water till the end. Once the song ends the achievement will unlock on the stats screen.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/828/UPhk7Pc=.jpgFan Service 35http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.jpg
Participated in a Vocal Fighters game with a 4 point difference (Except in Freestyle mode)

This achievement needs to be done in 2 player VS. to do this select a song you wish to play, on the video select screen go down to Vocal FIghters and start. In the game your profile has to beat you opponent by 4 points. At the end of each phrase you get a point for whoever did better. An easy way to do this is just not sing in the 2nd mic.

I will start with a couple things to add. First, there IS a cap on the stars that you can obtain from each song (I do not know what that cap is).


Second, in order to get "Call me a Superstar" you have to have 100 badges in each style.

There is some other stuff in the achievement discussion thread as well.

this is really bugging me. the rank after big bang isnt "stars" it says stars to indicate how many stars u have it is always there under the rank name this rank is recognised by the unlimited/infinity symbol just above where it says stars. you can see this in the im kind of a big deal thread which is also useful foranybody wanting the achievement, so maybe you should put a link in.

Nice guide.. Here's a little tip for the soloists.

For those that are playing this on their own - I managed to get the In Sync (co-op achievement) by singing Song for Whoever by Beautiful South. There isn't much oversinging, and when there is, it seems to register on both mics so you do hit some of the co-op notes! Just remember to have both mics at your mouth at the same time :)

I got 1,577,804 so must be easy ;)

Hey nice guide, I have a question can I also upload music from my mobil phone?
I am not 100% sure on this but if i was to guesse i would say. I would say that because a phone isn't just a device that holds music it's made for other things. When i tried playing songs of my phone once through the media player on my xbox it didn't work. All i suggest you do is get back to us with if it does or not.

I have 2nd question before I get this game does it recognize mp3`s or what?
Yes it does recognize mp3's but once they are uploaded to the game and you play them you will notice there are no lyrics which isn't a big surprise to me really. I was more surprised when people were moaning there was no lyrics or pitch to sing at.

i would think so. Otherwise how exactly would you have won the challenge.

Lol, that is what I have posted before, not new news. I was just saying before, that this can be boosted rather easily. I did type it out when I wrote my guide, just incase.

Edit: I did not see your question, yes you have to do both rounds with your silver. Not only that, but you have to view the results also with the primary. It is a big pain in the ass, but doable. Took me about 2 1/2 hours.

That's odd. It should've unlocked for you already. I got mine just tonight when I got my hundredth Party medal. Why would it be glitching on you like that, I wonder... :/

i dunno.......seems the 10 vs mode achievement is glitched for me too. Ive played like 20 songs on vs and no achievement. I'm gonna see if I get it if I play 10 vs matches under Score attack or whatever.

EDIT: Well oddly enough I got the battle tested achievement after doing 10 songs on Score Attack.

Quite odd. I'm thinking the reason I may not have the SuperStar status is because I dont have very many stars. I still need to get the 50,000 and 100,000 star achievements.

So do you have to have enough room on your hard drive for 300 songs to get the achievement? Any one have an estimate of how much room that takes up?

roughly 2 gb.

If you have psp or ipod you can use those as well.

Just found out you need at least 50,000 stars and 100 of each medal to get Superstar status. May want to update that.



Also if noone reads my post in the Maximum Stars per Song post:


This has just happened to me on the Ally and AJ song. I was wondering why my star total wasnt going up. I think the way to tell how many more stars you can obtain in a song is going into "My Lips".

Look at the Top 10. It will show you how many times youve played the song and theres a number under that as well. usually in the thousands, but for the Ally and AJ song it said 0 for me.

Yes its going to suck to get 100,000.....but I believe each song lets you acquire atleast 10,000.


Edit:

I can pretty much confirm this now. I switched over to the Taylor Swift song and after about 10,000 stars in that it now says "0" under the number of how many times Ive played it.

So as long as a song doesnt have a "0" under the number of how many times youve played the song(I'll be the 2nd number.if I'm confusing people)..than you should still be able to get stars on the song.

If someone needs a rival, just add me, jvest. I have the nordic version, so, some songs may not work.

So does this mean that I couldn't just play one song over and over again for the 50,000 stars achievement?

Do you have to get every unique star from every song for the achievements?

11-27-2008, 11:03 PM
For songs added from external sources, it actually doesn't take up a lot of space. Heck, the DLC requires more space than them. The reason why is because the game plays them from the original source rather than transferring them to the hard drive.

As for your last post, BigApple, you can sing a single song over and over all you want, but after a certain amount of times you have played that song (not sure what that amount is), stars from it eventually stop going towards your star total.

I'm not sure about your second question, however. There isn't an achievement specifically for getting stars from every unique on-disc song or anything -- just for stars themselves, so I would think you don't have to get some from every song. Maybe you could stick with songs you like, not touch a few, and still get the 100,000 stars achievement. I have gotten most of my so far 60,000+ stars from, say, fifteen or less of on-disc songs, because I have been sticking with songs I know and really like. I mean, I have tried all songs at least once, but I doubt I've gotten a lot of stars from the lot of them save for the ones I know.

Lol, that is what I have posted before, not new news. I was just saying before, that this can be boosted rather easily. I did type it out when I wrote my guide, just incase.

Edit: I did not see your question, yes you have to do both rounds with your silver. Not only that, but you have to view the results also with the primary. It is a big pain in the ass, but doable. Took me about 2 1/2 hours.

2 and a half hours has only netted me 10 wins...and I'm picking short songs. :(

Here's a hint how to get the "Clap Your Hands Everybody" achievement easily if you own the German version of lips:

Select the song "Emanuela" from "Fettes Brot". Immediately after the song starts shake your mic as crazy to get the tambourin showing up. Now shake until the achievement pops up. Note: If you didn't get the achievement before the music starts playing, press start and retry. You should get the achievement during the first three trys.

Have fun!

Ok can any one help me out with the THIS IS MADNESS achievement.

I've added over 300 songs to lips (around 325 I think) around 280 from my ipod and the rest from cd's / music I had on my harddrive but the achievement does not unlock for me. When I go to SING in the game it shows 358 tracks but no achievment.

Do all of the songs have to be saved onto the harddrive ? If so how do I get tracks from an IPOD onto the harddrive as it wont let me rip them.

BTW I added them from my ipod in to the lips game using the GET MUSIC option.
Thats weird it should give you it, I don't know why it wont. I would try adding a few more to see if it gets you anywhere. When i got this achievement it didn't involve me counting to 300 it just involved me pressing A till the achievement unlocked.

Haven't seen this anywhere else, and don't see a better thread (apart from achievement trading perhaps?) so I'll post it here:

For the challenges, if both players get zero overall (probably counts for any tie situation, but zero is all I've tested and of course very easy to engineer if you just don't sing and/or end the song immediately every time) then both players count as a win. This should halve the time needed for two people boosting, and slightly reduce the time needed for one person "self-boosting" with the aid of a second silver account on the same console (this is how I tested it, and only discovered it when I lost count of which account I was signed into and forgot to get a small score to win on one of the accounts).

tldr: Exit immediately before getting any points on every challenge.

This is the song a got 'infinity' rank on. Almost by the same method.
I just held both mics to my mouth and breathed in and out loudly (making a slight ahhh noise ;)), hits every note for both players. I have also tried rubbing the ends of the mics together which works just as well, as soon as the song goes into the music solo wave your mics about to get the 'Party & Performance' medals.

I'm a bit late now in the fact that your guide has been submitted, but there are some grammatical errors in your guide and some of the paragraphs and spelling need to be corrected to make it easier to read.

However, a good guide all round and it will be useful when I pick up this game myself.

Should not make any difference. The fastest way to do it is to just score 100 or so points then quit out and not score any on the other account.

Mic gesture is two things. One, when you are activating star power, you have to do a "pose" (e.g. raise mic in the air). The other, is shaking the mic like an instrument (you will see an tamborine or similar on screen to show it's working). Both these count towards the Performance medal :D Just keep shaking the mic when you can and use your star power :)

The 40 songs is 40 different songs, no matter what mode as I did it on both co-op and solo. Just attempt to sing every song that you have on the disc :) You can score badly on them but it would still count as a song!

18 Unique songs is that you have sung 18 different songs, but not necessarily VS.

If your going for the 40 songs then just get a mate and sing all the songs from the CD - that way your getting medals and stars for later achievements :)

MartiniKiss0x (http://live.xbox.com/en-US/profile/profile.aspx?pp=0&GamerTag=MartiniKiss0x) and I finished Defender last night. Some tips:

* You don't have to sing the whole song.
* We used Bust A Move, as it had the most immediate 2 notes ("Bust it") - literally within a second of starting. Singing them gets you 3150 points, and then you can hit Start and End Song. The winner sings "Bust it" on the first song, quits, and then quits the second song as soon as it starts. The loser quits both songs as soon as they start.
* When you're starting a song, after selecting the red "Rival" badge, you'll see a Loading screen in the lower left, then the song title. You can X past the song title screen, saving a few seconds of time.
* Once you get into the rhythm of the above, it takes about 3 minutes per win, giving a grande total of 2 hours to boost the achievement (and this counts all the annoying and repetitive Y button refreshing you have to do.)

You have to use the vibrato, when theres long notes, just make sure to hit several of them perfect. But if you are playing Bust a Move theres no long notes so just make sure you hit most of the notes.

Sang 40 different songs

This one is simple enough but time consuming. Sing 40 different songs (not 40 songs total they all have to be a different song). An easy way of knowing what you have done is by either starting left to right until you receive the achievement or by going to my lips and on the first blade it will say now many unique songs you have sung..

Probably worth pointing out that these songs all need to be played in full. Which pissed me off no end to find out after about an hr!

EDIT: Well oddly enough I got the battle tested achievement after doing 10 songs on Score Attack.

Quite odd. I'm thinking the reason I may not have the SuperStar status is because I dont have very many stars. I still need to get the 50,000 and 100,000 star achievements.

I'm having same problem with the VS, and I had been looking for "Score Attack" under the "Sing" and etc, but cannot find it... this (Score Attack) is not same as Vocal Fighters, right? Can someone help me where I can found Score Attack?
