This debate refers to starkid, the theater people. Do not accept if you don't know who they are. I am pro, so my opponent will try to prove that the starkids are not celebrities, and are just normal people who make musicals.

RULES
  1. Base argument off logic and sources, not oppinions.
  2. First round is acceptance
  3. This is mainly about their celebrity level, not whether they are good or not
  4. A source can be their proven level of popularity, a poll, the oppinions of others (not yourself), or an interview from somewhere of the starkids themselves.

The starkid twitter account has 133,000 followers. They do charge for their musicals, and clearly enough people know about them, because they have gone on national tours. They usually have a panel at LeakyCon. The starkids are celebrities. What else would you call them?

There not world wide known and not all of them are known so they are not all celebrities.

They may not be world wide known, but lots of celebrities are not. People in other countries do know and care about them too, anyway. They are always getting asked to go to foreign countries. some celebrities aren't even known. I don't know who half of the popular celebrities today are.

There are lots of celebrities who may not be as known as other ones. What about local artists? They may be considered celebrities. Especially if it is a celebrity from an entire region, like from the entire midwest. Even in schools, there are celebrities. There are good dancers, smart people, and people who are good at sports. A school can think of some of these people as celebrities. Now, think of starkid again. They are much bigger han a school hero.

Reasons for voting decision: The forfeits really hurt Con's case. Overall, what was really lacking was a definition of "celebrity"--one that we could measure these "starkids" against. And of course, there's the question of whether we're talking about the group or the individuals involved...the Supremes would normally be considered celebrities, but most people probably only know Diana Ross's name. This debate was a bit disjointed, but Pro made several points unrebutted thanks to Con's forfeits, and in the last round Con conceded at least 1 "starkid" as a celebrity, so arguments and conduct to Pro. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
