At Cardiff auditions

What can i say.

Today at auditions drained me. I got up at 5, i was at the stadium at half 7, then qued with THOUSANDS for 2 hours in the freezing cold and rain. Did some filming of the crowd cheering for about 3 hours, Dermot arrived, more cheering, then at about half 11 we were let into the staduim. MORE filming and strange silent cheering, waited again, and i think at about half 12 or 1 auditions started.

It was awful, there were loads small square things at the front so everyone around can hear you, with the so called music experts from Sony records and the show's producers. i got seen to at half 2, i got asked name, age, what im going to sing and told in your own time. Sitting like a metre away from me was a very deluded and bored looking man, he wouldnt even look at me, or any of the other contestants when they sang.

i was told "its a no" which is fair enough i didnt expect to go through with my nerves. But it really made me angry that people in front of me who i overheard had amazing voices and were told a no, and i seen alot of people with no talent at all running out screaming with golden tickets.

Iv'e read blogs like this before last year, and i thought they were exaggerating. Now ive seen for myself, and i wont be going back next year. =/

Cardiff Auditions

Had a similar experience to the above really, I drove from devon the night before, and started queuing at 2am!! excessive i know, but we weren't the fist people there! In all queued for 9 hours, the action all started around 8am as promised, and we were outside until 10.30-11.00 ish, then filed in like sheep into the stadium and filmed doing more of this stupid silent cheering! also, would like to know if anyone else thought the guy telling everyone what to do was TOTALLY Unnecessary? I thought he was really odd. Might just be sounding a bit bitter, but i know I can sing, i'm not a mental, and was really gutted to get a no. It was an interesting insight into what you see on telly not being half of what happens! All a bit of a fake, and although it may just be a coincedence but people were coming out of my booth in a yes, no, yes no order!!

Bit gutted really,, but i Woudnt go for it again!!
