I auditioned for X Factor 2015
I wanted to audition for The X Factor for years. I began watching it in 2005 & have done so since. Even if I didn’t want too?.. I still would as it is something that takes over the TV screens, newspapers, online sites.
Why? Well, I love to sing. I love to dance. I’d love to be a performer. My tattoo says “Dream Big” && that’s my dream.
The thing is, I have confidence in my abilities ; singing/dancing. I have lots of confidence, when I am in my room singing & dancing? Or in a pub/club dancing? I have so much confidence. With auditions? Brain goes*overthinking*. I need to get passed that ‘nerves’ section, which I know I can do, I just need someone to guide/push me, which is why I thought X Factor would be perfect for that.
I believe X Factor is a platform for people who don’t know where to begin in the industry, or don’t live anywhere near where they need to be to go for their dreams, and/or have financial issues to get them where they want to be.
I traveled 4 hours last Thursday to get to the Dublin auditions. I am so proud I tried. I know you cannot get anywhere without trying in life, so I had too! You can guess by now that NO! I didn’t get through to the next round, *sigh* but I did actually sing in front of two strangers (who were very friendly also). “All I want” by Kodaline was my song choice. A song I adore, it makes me think of my dad, & I like the way I sing it.
I guess I just was not something they were looking for, I didn’t have that super bass && that is OK. We can’t all be liked by everyone, if so? Jeez, Fair Play.
Any regrets? YES! I regret not asking for criticism, so that I can improve.
(below is a video I don’t think many have seen, but is hilarious and makes my face go as red as a rose. I didn’t think the editors of Connected would ever ever, ever use this for anything. It’s good to laugh at yourself being you, me singing/bopping/doing strange movements along to Rihanna’s ‘Jump’)
