Auckland Auditions - Day 1

Submitted by admin on 20 January, 2004 - 9:55am

Just got back from the first day of the Auckland auditions. Wow, what an experience! When I arrived at the insane hour of 6am, there were already hundreds of people huddled up in line for their chance to be "the one". Some were there from 2am, complete with blankets and sleeping bags.

Christchurch Auditions
Well, the Christchurch auditions started very early! With some people getting there well before dawn! I got there at 5:00, and it was still pitch black and very cold! By 6:30 the end of the queue could not be seen from where I was standing.

About <i>that</i> rumour

Submitted by admin on 16 January, 2004 - 1:35pm
There's been a lot of speculation about a rumour that contestants cannot sing Whitney Houston songs (such as "I will always love you"). As far as we know, this was started in a Sunday Star Times article. We tried to contact them about this yesterday but they were unavailable for comment. However, we can confirm that the rumour is "rubbish", according to TV2.
