Have you seen the show “The Voice” ? It is American Idol-esque, except run in the beginning completely based on your vocal abilities alone. The auditions are blind, in that the judges do not face you when you enter and instead turn around only if they want you on their team. Oh, and the judges? Just people like Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton.
‘Sha, it is kind of a cool show.
Chicago auditions are July 15th & 16th. I magically happen to have those days off because of the boyfriend’s birthday… So yesterday, I may have signed up for auditions on the 16th.
I am so freaking excited right now. And more nervous than I’ve ever been in my whole life.
If I go and I fail, then whatever, I blew a day hanging out on Navy Pier in Chicago. Not the end of the world. But I’m almost more nervous about making it than failing. If I make it onto the show, this could be the start of a whole new life for me – one that I’ve known since I was five that I wanted to pursue. But my disease limits what I can do with instruments, and even my piano playing is not going… well, it’s basically non-existent for right now.
So I have ten days left to get ready. I have to prepare two songs and I’m already completely baffled as to what to do. But I kind of know what I want to wear, so at least I have something in mind? Truth be told, I’m not sure how much I will post between now and then, but if I get called back, I will definitely let everyone know!
