This thread is for those of you part of the underground world of VOCALOID, be you fan or producer.
I first heard of VOCALOID at Anime Expo 2008, but never really looked into it until 2010. I got lucky, as the very first VOCALOID concert in the states was held at Anime Expo 2011. I was lucky enough to get a seat 10 rows from the stage. Even though the quality was far below that of the Japan concerts, I still enjoyed it nonetheless. (waves around Len cell phone strap souvenir)
Obviously, my top favorite VOCALOID is Len Kagamine, followed by KAITO. Not too fond of Miku, but a lot of songs made for her are good. Luo Tianyi from China is also starting to grow on me, but the Chinese fanbase hasn’t really impressed me with their original music. I do like me some GUMI and Luka with some Rin. Sonika and Oliver are pretty much the only English VOCALOIDs that I remotely like, but the English fanbase has been pretty lackluster with original songs.
Favorite UTAU thus far is Ritsu Namine. I don’t know why, but I love her voice for some reason.

I’ll start things off with:
Sekiranun Graffiti (cover) - Len Kagamine (original by Miku)
Electric Angel (cover) - Len & Rin Kagamine (original by Miku)
YES YES - Big Al (so far, the only original English song I actually like)
