General: Who has once again chickened out of auditioning?

Submitted by hideousrockboy on 4 May, 2006 - 12:07pm

I have ... again. This year I even downloaded the application form, but that's as far as I got.

What's your reason for chickening out? Is failing on national TV really that bad (assuming you get that far)?

So what is your

So what is your reason?

CHICKEN

I can't get time off work

I can't get time off work ... sound familiar :-D

*does the chicken dance*

Nah, I don't have the vocal chops to pull it off. Also I doubt I could be successfully marketed as a 'Popstar'. I'm a Keith Richards, not a Mick Jagger. Also I throw up after every performance I do. I can keep going if you want :-D

I'm still hoping you audition :-)

Time off work eh?  That old

Time off work eh?  That old story...

You should still audition.  Successfully marketed as a pop star?  That's a reason that you wouldn't win, not a reason to chicken out of auditions.

Idol auditions are fun!  You get to be just like all the people on TV and stand on the Idol logo and sing for the judges (or producers) and get comments, and it's FUN!

 Why worry about the rest of the competition!?!?

I only play to win. Never,

I only play to win. Never, ever play a board game with me ... it gets ugly really quickly :-?

Fun? Did you not read the puking up part?? :-D

Actually, I don't think I would get the time off work - and I don't want to lose the butt grove on my leather chair ... I've worked hard to get that groove just right.

Also the planets will be aligned in such a way as to prevent me being able to leave town for a few months. Uranus is entering a retrograde orbit, preventing travel for all Virgos.

Petrol prices are too high.

I'm getting my nails done.

Take your chair with you.

Take your chair with you. :D

And sing Spin. 8)

hehehe I have my song

hehehe :-D

I have my song picked already: "Whiskey In The Jar" Metallica version.

See, you're song choice was

See, you're song choice was all wrong.  That is a "throw up because i'm so nervous" type of song to sing.  If you want your idol experience to be fun... you should sing Drool Pillow.

LOL. The reggae version of

LOL. The reggae version of Drool Pillow would be fun :-D

Oh, and I have a rasta hat with fake dreads attached to it ... hmmmmmmm.

yeah admin.. ?

yeah admin.. ?

I'm going to South America

I'm going to South America and wouldn't be able to attend the Top 60 round unfortunately.

That's no reason not to do

That's no reason not to do the first round.  You can always pull out later, and then spend the rest of the season saying "well, I would still be there if I hadn't had to go to South America"...

:)

Um, yeah.... and I um....

Um, yeah.... and I um.... have this thing to do when the auditions are on. *coughs*

Ok, *breaks down and cries*: I can't sing. Abandon Idolblog now.

Oh dear. I made Admin cry. 

Oh dear. I made Admin cry.  Is that a banning offence?

Hehe.

Hehe.

Wait. That sounds wrong...

yeah... it looked pretty wrong in the recent comments list!

But you're right.  That's a good smiley.

:@ -> ADMIN

I live for sounding wrong.

I live for sounding wrong. :D LOL Well not quite, but it's fun. Especially purposefully in the recent comments. I also like :-# Hey! I should :-# spam today.

ROAR!! :roar:

You have to cough when the auditions are on? Take some lozenges. :P
