KR: AI Encore is a music rhythm game from Konami. At the beginning I recommend going through the song list and listening to the demos to see which ones you might know, it will make it much easier if you recognize some of the songs. The vocals in this game are just like Rock Band's, so if you are used to that, then this will be easier. I recommend singing once through "Time of the Season" to get used to it then get started.

Step #1: Expert Playthrough
This shouldn't be too hard, but you need to make sure this is a full tournament, not a shorter one. You get unlimited retries of each stage, so you don't have to worry about being eliminated, because you can always retry. It isn't too hard to beat the tournament on expert, just play the songs you recognize, then with the rest pick songs with one music note difficulty since they are not too hard. Follow this and you will be through the tourney in no time unlocking these achievements. (if you are having a really hard time with this, skip to step two and come back to this later). Finishing this will net you:
American Idol (50)
World Idol (80)
Golden Ticket (10)
The First of Many (5)

Step #2: Easy Full Tournament
This you will want to attempt to 100% every song you sing so you can get a few more of the achievements. On easy difficulty, this isn't too hard, even for the worst of us singers. Attempt to play songs you are familiar with if you are not too good, but if this comes easy, I recommend playing songs you have not played to make it less time to get other achievements. Finishing this with 100% on every song will net you:
It Sounds Like A Lot (20)
It Didn't Take That Long (50)
Girl's Best Friend (100)
Megastar (10)
Hero (50)
Superstar (25)
Why Don't You Marry Him Then (15)

Step #3: 18 Easy Short Tournaments
To knock the rest of the single player achievements besides Dedication, finish 18 easy tournaments (I recommend short tourneys to go faster, but it is at your discretion what you pick). Try getting 100% on full songs you haven't gotten platinum on. 18 short tourneys should be enough to get diamond on every song since you have already done one full tourney with about 11 diamonds of the 40 complete. Finishing this should net you:
Inspiration (10)
Legend (75)
Million Seller (50)
Maestro (175)
The Great American Songbook (20)
American Sensation (30)

Step #4: Multiplayer Achievements
NOTE: Xbox Live is needed for 6/9 of these.

For the offline achievements, you will need two mics, but for the online ones, you can use the achievement trading thread on x360a, or if you have a friend with the game, then you can get them. For the offline ones, just play a multiplayer game in every mode. For the online ones, just trade wins in each of the three modes. This will net you:
Headbanger (10)
Premiership (10)
Just the Two of Us (10)
Grudge Match (10)
World Tour (10)
Global Star (10)
Ranked Grudge Match Winner (15)
Ranked World Tour Winner (15)
Ranked Global Star Winner (15)

Step #5 Dedication and the Medley
These are the two last achievements, one will take a few hours while the other a few minutes. To make a medley, go to quick play, and on the left side, go to create medley, and hit 2 song mystery and sing. This counts as a full song, not a short song, so getting platinum shouldn't be too hard. For Dedication, you have to score a cumulative 50 million. I recommend Time of the Season and You Really Got Me (If downloaded). They both range about 2:30 and are easy to get 100,000. After a few hours, Dedication, as the true meaning describes, is yours. These two should be the last.
The Showman (20)
Dedication (100)

This is very far from difficult, it is simply time consuming. Expert can even be beat due to unlimited retries and song familiarity. The only factor really affecting whether or not you can achieve 1000/1000 is how shy you really are at singing, especially for the local multiplayer achievements.

[x360a would like to thank BAD BLOOD BIGGY for this Road Map]

American Idol50
Win the full American Idol tournament at any difficulty level 
Like it says, this can be done on any difficulty. I would recommend doing it on easy for 2 reasons. 1. If you are just starting on the game, it will be much more simple. 2. You are going to be doing a LOT of tournaments & singing if you are going for the full 1000 pts. so save it
There are 18 rounds. You don't have to get perfect every round to advance. Also, if you do get voted out, don't worry, you can redo the round.

The same as 'American Idol' achievement, just on expert difficulty. Remember, you don't have to be perfect every time to advance and if you fail, just redo the round

You will get this when going for the 'American Idol' achievement after singing your first song in the full tournament as long as you don't do terrible. Easy achievement.

There are 40 songs on the disc. Sing each one and you get the achievement. Note that the first 2 rounds of the full American Idol tournament will not count towards this since you only sing a portion of each song. You don't have to get any certain score, just don't get boo'ed off and it yours.

This is best done on easy. Just sing it through and if you mess up, restart it. It's not as difficult as it sounds. If you don't know if you've messed up, check your final score. A perfect song will score you 100,000 points every time.
