I've had three different achievements not pop for me.

I got a perfect on a shout out a couple of times with no "singer" achievement.

I did same song five times in a row, and got 4 stars with my son and no ace pair silver.

Anyone know why these aren't popping for me?

do you have the settings turned off on your console so it doesnt tell you about achievements/

the same song 5 times in a row has to be long songs,short versions will not work,play a song then when it ends use the play again option and it should pop

oh i see,you have singer silver and gold but not bronze.fortunately this is an easy achievement to meet the requirements for unlocking,1 song should let you know if this will work,try loading up the game with a different storage device, effectively starting the game over again,go for the single shout out,if it pops problem solved,just quit and go back to your original device/game

Yeah, I figured I would have to try starting again, but it unfortunately did it with the 50 song one too. I got silver for 100 songs but no bronze at 50.

I'll try long songs, that may have been the deal on the 5 in a row.

I just tried for singer bronze on a thumb drive and a cloud save with no luck. Who do I talk to? Microsoft or the game maker?

Am I the only one having these issues. Just got 4 stars in Simon says and no achievements. Even had the uplay pop up and say I did it. I really am starting to hate this game.

did you do the big band theories on songs with 4 choreographies(4 dancers on screen)?as it has to be a song with 4 choreographers,ie dynamite,this is halloween,i was made for loving you,night train to cairo etc,if it doesn't have 4 different parts on screen you can't get big band theories

Yes, I did it on "Dynamite", and I know you are trying to be helpful, and I appreciate your effort and responses, but I know that I am meeting the actual achievement requirements. I am just wondering if there are any settings either with the XBOX, the Kinect or the game that are somehow blocking these from unlocking because I see that plenty of people are not having trouble with this.

For anyone else with this issue, I went back and set up the Kinect ID with the room well lit from the front and after that went back and tried again and boom, singer - bronze and the Simon says achievements unlocked.

I guess the game is trying to make sure the actual person is completing the achievements not someone else on your gamer tag.

Thanks, I think it was because I started the game with Kinect id active, then turned it off because my room was dim and Kinect didn't always recognize me. As soon as I turned it back on and made sure Kinect recognized me, I wound up getting 8 achievements yesterday. I just hope this helps someone else who may be having the same issue.

I just thought I'd point this out since I was still confused. Sometimes the game will recognize you at the menu, but what you want is the actual Xbox notification to display over the game Saying

I was getting confused and thinking 'recognized' just mean the game displaying your name at the main menu instead of Guest.
