So the audition started at 10AM but I got there around 1PM hahaha. We went in and this Korean lady asked us if we're here to audition and we said yea, so this man led us to the room where we show our application form and they give us our sticker (I was #118). Oh and they also gave us a water bottle and a snack (choco pie). How nice of them LOL :)
There were quite a lot of old korean people so I got paranoid, thinking are they the judges? what? why is that guy holding a camera? LOL we went to the waiting room and there were probably about 80 people? The lady asked us what our number was and we were taken to our seats. I was sitting on the 3rd row, right in front of the projector. So the projector showed a lot of JYP trainee videos and MV's. Every MV that played, I was dancing to it like:
and the guy beside me was probably thinking:
Oh but then it showed JYP trainees performing 'Be Mine' by Infinite.
OMG the guy sitting beside was dancing to it too, so we were both like:
(must be an Inspirit fanboy ^.^) KJDSFHDSJKDHF!!
We waited for over 3 hours!! -.- I KNOW!! Such a long time but the wait was worth it. There are 10 seats by this door which leads you to the preparation room, not the audition room. A Korean man informed us that my row of 5 were next so we got called to sit on those seats and I was so nervous because it's getting closer. We waited for about 15mins and they said that only 3 people can go in at a time so it was me, the guy and his sister (I think). The man led us to the preparation room and there were 3 people practicing and 3 other people waiting by this room, which is the actual audition room. The group who just finished auditioning came out and the 3 people in line went in the room so me and the other 2 people with me were next. You now know that it's 3 people in the room at a time. While waiting, us 3 danced to Be Mine again so we won't be as nervous since we're gonna be watching each other's auditions. From outside the room, you could actually hear them singing :O I heard a girl sing Be My Baby by the Wonder Girls and she sounded so goooooood! And the other 2 were pretty much shouting LOL I don't know what they were singing.. They came out looking like:
And my group came in looking all confident:
But inside we were feeling:
There were 2 judges and a cameraman. The cameraman seemed really bored and tired >< there was a male judge who was really nice! Because he was smiling all the time and then there was a female judge who seemed to take it TOO seriously. She scared me, at first because she wouldn't even smile at us -.-
The girl sang first since she was #116 and she sang.. I know the song but I forgot the name.. That song has a lot of high notes but she stayed flat all the time and she was always looking down when you're meant to look at the camera. After 30 seconds, the female judge just goes: ..and says thank you..
But the guy lasted longer than the girl. OMG his voice was wow at the beginning. I was actually like o_____o how am I going to compete with that? He ruined it though by going for the high notes. He forced himself. If he stayed low then it would've been great but he pushed himself lol the group behind us actually heard it from outside... I kept looking at the judges and the man was always staring and the lady was always looking down, writing something, she didn't even look at them.. T.T and then it was my turn! Finally! Hahahhaa. While I was walking to the T sign (where you stand), I was forcing myself to smile even if I was super nervous:
Btw, when you're standing; you have to go for it. The judges will not say anything to you. You just go for your life. You're not even allowed to say hello to them.. I sand 'Love You I Do' by Jennifer Hudson. As expected, the female judge didn't look at me till the 2nd verse. Then both judges started nodding their head, up and down. I was there for quite a long time, I thought lol but maybe that's because I was the one on the spot. I sang 2 verses, chorus and half of the bridge.. Lol then I paused for a few seconds so I'm able to hit the high note but I think that they thought I was finished so the female judge said "thank you". I am hoping that they were blown away by my audition:
LOL WHO AM I KIDDING. I'm pretty sure they were:
Hahaha I know I won't get in but it was an amazing experience!
And thank you all so much for the support! I love you, gurupop family! <3
Pop it, maybe? xD
