My American Idol checklist:
-Song choice: Check
I decided to sing Fooled Ya Baby.
As I was trying things on in the dressing room last night (I procrastinate- don't judge me), I took pictures and sent them to my mother for her input. This was the winner:
And of course I wore my sexy bright red shoes, dark blue jeans, black/red earrings, and a cute black bracelet to tie it all together.
-Make new friends: Check
-Warming up the vocals in the hall with the new friends: Check
-Getting REALLY hungry and waiting in an hour long line to get food: Check
-Getting a little too excited from seeing Ryan Seacrest in person, who I don't even like in the first place: Check
-Make it through round one: _____ unchecked.
After waiting in the arena for about 5 hours, watching many crazy people in costumes make it through, some really good singers and some not-so-good singers make it through, and some INCREDIBLE singers get turned down, it was finally my turn to sing (as well as the 3 other girls in my line). I gave it my all (which is all I could ask for), and they called us all forward and said "You all are very talented, but, unfortunately, there are a lot more factors that go into picking someone than just talent. So I'm sorry, but we're not going to put any of you through."
As I walked down the "hall of shame" I really wasn't upset or bitter at all. Eh. I knew there was a very very small chance of making it, so I wasn't surprised. Thanks for all of your good luck wishes and your support!!
-Having a fun experience and having a day off work: Double check.
Maybe I should have worn a chicken costume.
