When I said that the blind audition was the most nerve-wracking
experience of my life, I was of course wrong. Battling a friend is the
worst. You both have to work hard together to make the song sound good
but at the same time you're working against each other. It leaves you
with a really weird, confused feeling. Before going on stage, Rebecca
and I talked about how yes this is a battle, but that we need to work
together and look at each other for cues on stage to really be able to
make this thing work. I really think that's what we had that some groups
didn't because our sound was so tight.
Anyway, I'm standing at the foot of the stage with the mic in my hand and my heart in my chest and I'm thinking this is it!..... but it wasn't and they broke for lunch right before I went on. It was awful but I think it helped when I actually had to perform because it was almost like I had already done it. Lunch finished, I got on deck, took a deep breath and just went for it. I was actually really worried about moving on stage but we both seem to hit our cues flawlessly. I was glad because that's really the last thing I wanted to worry about. The song was over, Carson
took our arms and the feedback came. Blake
to win and that might be because I sort of interrupted him at my audition.....woops! When that happened I thought I was done for. But to my surprise, Christina
and Cee Lo
said that they would choose me which was amazing! The moment of truth finally came and while Rebecca
and I sat there in silence Adam said my name and I went insane! The crowd's cheer boomed throughout the studio and my adrenaline was pumping so hard I literally thought I was going to pass out. My life is crazy.
