    Ok I think I have this down, with an on disc song and solo. I have checked it 4 times and I got it easily each time. I will describe exactly what I did.
    Requires 2 mics

    Song: The Look
    Difficulty Setting: Medium
    Section : Start of the 2nd verse "Fire in her eyes......"

    This section has a two part harmony where they sing the same thing and has a 3rd part that is a talkie at the end of the phrase over lapping the other 2.

    Method : I was using a Rock Band mic and a lips mic, I held the the RB mic close to my lips and the other one an inch lower around my chin and out away from me ever so slightly. SO when I sang the fire in her eyes part I nailed the 2 part one, and the talkie bit gets tagged on for the triple at the end of the phrase.

    If you have trouble with the end bit just shout it, you should have the other 2 full before it comes.

    Mic volume was set right down on both mic's

    Note: this may be just a total fluke with my setup just thought I'd post it in case it helps someone else.

    Edit: I did this on medium, but I can't see why you can't try it on easy too

    You can do this solo with one microphone HOWEVER you do need to buy one DLC track

    "You Should Be Dancing" by the Bee Gees features one phrase where all 3 vocal lines play at different times.

    I DO NOT take credit for this video but the phrase in question appears around the 3 minute mark.

    Update/Edit: Another DLC song released this week allows for a Triple Awesome with just one mic! "Fat Lip" by Sum 41 features a phrase where each vocal color parts are sung separately. New video attached (again I DO NOT take credit), phrase in question appears around 34 seconds into the video. The difference is in this song the phrase is entirely talkies so success is guaranteed first time.

    ZombieMazeFat Lip is the way to go if you have a spare 160 MSP. I could not get it by singing, but my old friend ,Brown Noise' did it for me.

    CanadianWhizKid^^ Worked perfectly. I couldn't even talk the talkie parts, but it worked when I played the brown noise (linked above), held the mic to some speakers, and nailed it first try.

    Turn on no-fail, stick 3 mics in front of a fan, and play rock lobster, any difficulty. There are a bunch of harmony phrases that are all talkie - they are guaranteed triple awesomes every time.

    If you're going for the 50 and 100 triple awesomes goals, there are also lots of phrases with 1 singing part plus talkies. If you play it on easy, you should also be able to get 20+ triple awesomes per play.

    NURSEwithWOUNDhaha! I read the bit about using a fan- don't have a fan so I stuck the 3 mics in my pants and danced around while the song played- hit several triples! Laughed my ass off. Try it- it works.
