In only its second year, tables for the Owensboro Lip Sync Battle are highly coveted items.
Amanda Boarman Owen, executive director of Puzzle Pieces, said tables for the event, sponsored by Kentucky Legend, sold out in “literally five seconds.”
When tables went on sale at 8 a.m. Friday morning she said she had 23 emails in her inbox before 8:01 a.m.
“I knew people wouldn’t believe me if I said we sold out in five seconds, but we truly did,” Owen said.
While the tables that seat 10 are sold out, general admission tickets are still available. Two hundred and fifty tickets will go on sale 8 a.m., Monday. Tickets can be purchased through the EventBrite link on the Owensboro Lip Sync Facebook page for $30 a piece.
Owen said general admission tickets were a huge hit last year and she is afraid they will sell out in less than a day.
“I really think the general admission tickets could go within minutes,” she said. “The lip sync battle is a fun event that you don’t want to miss — it’s entertaining.”

Owen said she has been blown away by the excitement from the community.
“I didn’t really expect the eagerness and excitement of the community for the event,” Owen said. “I love a good crowd and my mentality is ‘go big or go home,’ so I am proud of how this event has grown in only a year.”
The Owensboro Lip Sync Battle will be Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. at the Owensboro Convention Center.
