Melissa speaking here. I have such sad news. I didn't make it through the "pre-audition" round today. I don't know what went wrong but all I can say is, the pre-judge(not the real judges for the real audition & the show) probably was not into country pop song. I gave it my all infact, this was the 1st time ever that I was not nervous for a singing competition. I didn't want to be because I didn't want to screw up my singing as this is my only chance to become a star & win RM1,000,000. There were ten contestants including me in a small room. Two girls sang well but the guys didn't do too well. The two girls did a lot of blasting while I did more feelings in the song. I was pretty shocked when I was not chosen but a guy that went out of tune in some parts of his song & was copying the voice of the original singer, made it through the next round which will be on tomorrow. I sure still don't understand. In each group, there must only be 3 contestants that can make it through the next round. So maybe one boy, two girls or two boys and one girl. I don't think they can pick all girls or all boys only. I don't know. So since the other two girls did more blasting than me, they were chosen. And since they have to pick a guy anyway, they picked him when actually one or two other guys did a little much better than him. So I don't know whether it is because the pre-judge didn't appreciate country music coz it was not her thing or whatever. I noticed she was more into R&B & soul because she kept asking another girl to sing one of those if she knew one but she knew none. So, what more can I say? I am very upset but then again, I am glad that I didn't have to leave my family for three long months. I am basically emotionally not ready for it honestly. Now that the DWB Christmas cards are coming in, I want to be able to enjoy looking through them all with my dogs & family & oh by the way, we have a new Golden Retriever pet named Joy. She was a stray found at a dumpster near our home so we picked her up & now decided to keep her. Our three stooges like her very much but she's a bit of a nutso but incredible in Obedience! More stories & pictures of her to come.
Anyway, we're just gonna forget about it. It really isn't the end of the world for me yet. I'm gonna go back to my normal life for the meanwhile while & find a new job & just wait for the next One In A Million competition again next year. Maybe for all you know, the next pre-judge will appreciate my singing better or maybe I'll just have to do some blasting too with one of Jeniffer Hudson's songs if that's what they want. This is reality isn't it?
