✔ Best Answer
Well you probably should have started this project long before you entered the competition and not waited until the last moment. Its going to take some experimenting with the audio program as well as the Windows audio settings to get the setup right. You can record on your computer but you aren't going to be able to sing live on youtube.

Ok, go to http://audacity.sourceforge.net/ download and install Audacity. Now depending on your sound card or built in sound device, go into the Windows mixer panel by double clicking on the speaker icon in your system tray. You will need to play around with the recording options to get it to playback the audio track and record your microphone at the same time. There will also be recording options in Audacity to configure.

What you hear will be up to Windows to control. You will set the volume in the mixer control panel. Just be aware if you turn the speakers output up too much you will get feedback.

Once you get the volume the way you like, fire up Audacity and whatever program you use to play your media files. Now start recording in Audacity and then play the song. Audacity should record both your voice and the song being played.
