Dry mouthed shaking and total lack of lyrical recall when presented with the opportunity to sing/perform in front of a random audience. This is similar to karaokaphobia, but on a different plane of existence due to having to make the music that one sings to instead of just singing to recorded pap. Not to be confused with badkaraokaphobia where you are terrified that the slobbering mass strutting up to the stage is going to assault your senses with a pitiless attack on something originally meant to be performed by someone with talent.
The onset of openmicophobia caused Dustin to hide under the table after drooling on his Adidas.
