Did my audition today - I didn't hear a single really bad singer. Even the bad ones were good. There were like 11-year-olds kicking my butt in the vocal arena. Suddenly made me realise that the people who will get through will be the Susan Boyles - the ones who stick out and are different... Not because they can sing or dance or whatever, but because they look different or did something that made them unique. Note to self: must start listening more to Derek Sivers... My chances: 5000 to 1, assuming that about 50,000 people auditioned and only 12 will get through. No pressure... But like all the peeps on Master Chef, this was just another opportunity, and success or failure does nothing to change my dream - I will sing, because as my friend Corinne says, NOT doing music is like trying to NOT breathe - you know you're not gonna get it right. So there you have it. C'est la vie...
