I don't know how I feel going into this process. It's weird to feel excited and nervous at the same time. I went to the open call in New York and it's sort of funny how I got there. My good friend was the one who told me about the show, said he was trying out, and that he needed someone who could sing to go with. I was really hesitant about it just because I knew nothing about the show and auditions were the weekend before I had to go back to school (I'm premed, so missing any school isn't really an option). Anyway, I did some research and found out about the whole blind audition portion and started really liking the premise of the show. I ended up agreeing to go with my friend and he was pumped.....until a day before he decided to bail on me.....which wasn't fun. I think it was at that moment when I realized that I really wanted to try out for the show. I had been singing all my life and didn't realize how important this was to me until I had the option of it being taken away. I went by myself and I guess how much I wanted it really paid off.
