    Once you unlock the second stage (around level 15), you just need to get enough fans to earn the Over Capacity Bonus which is tracked by the bar at the bottom of the screen. Fill it to the 3 stars at the far right of the bar and the achievement will pop at the results screen.

    EDIT: MajesticPanda69 mentioned an extremely short such as eentsy spider will not actually fill the bar but you do get credit for it because the song ends before the fans finish filling up.

    HyruleBalverineYou got some tips on the best/easiest way to do that? The best I've gotten is about halfway between the thid star and the triple stars.

    Chunkeh MunkehMake use of the poses, if you get 5 then you are pretty much guaranteed to get it. Also it depends when they give you the poses as it is completely random.

    As for singing tips...I just used a fan =D

    CheneyHeadshotIf you don't use Kinect while playing it's a bit easier to do this too, you get more fans from just singing.
    I did it with New York, New York.

    HyruleBalverineI figured out a great "trick" for those who cannot sing or don't know the free songs; turn up the volume to your tv and place you mic/headset right by the speaker. Use a song with the lead vocal on and let the game do all of the work. Then, if you are using Kinect, you only need 3 poses - and if not using Kinect, you hit capacity sooner, like CheneyHeadshot was saying.

    MajesticPanda89It's worth mentioning, if you have an extremely short song (eentsy spider) you will not actually fill the bar although you will see the popup on the left to know you've done it. This is because of the large pauses when it reaches each star. I just got it and the bar was only technically filled to the second star when the song ended. Also with this song and no kinect it literally took one try.

    NeverUnluckyEasier without Kinect?

    CosminiionAt lvl 40 the stage becomes large so you have to get this before you reach that lvl. With Kinect you just need 2 successful poses for the triple stars and of course a constant sound for the singing.

    Itzz Sh0wt1m3Just unlocked this by playing a random somg from my phone, holding my headset close to my phone and started a song on karaoke. I just made sure I had a green sound symbol at the left bottom of my screen during the entire duration of the song and had 7500 fans at the end of the song. I thereby easily made it to the +- 5000 fans I needed for going over capacity. Ive just reached level 15 so this should be very easy for everyone who has reached level 15 and has a phone. Hope this helps.smile

    Why Level 15? I'm level 7 and I just got it alllll the way over to the right no problem (but you're right, why the hell didn't the achievement pop?!?! I earned it!)
