idol open auditions result

After more than six hours of standing in a disorganized queue, of more waiting time in the holding room, and the two-minute meeting with a judge, I didn’t make it to the next round of the Norwegian Idol.

As I mentioned in my last entry, I feared the long waiting time, and that indeed turned out to be the most gruelling part of the competition. It just wears you out – physically, mentally, vocally. It was breezy/cold outside Chateau Neuf and standing out there didn’t do any good for my voice. When I started to introduce myself to the judge, who was neither one of the four Idol judges by the way, my voice had gone raspy and tired. But still, I struggled to sing my best and just gave what’s left of me. The judge thought “it was nice, but was not very good.” I respected his decision, I wouldn’t have put myself through to the next round either with my performance. I knew just what he meant.

I didn’t feel disappointed. I didn’t have any regret. I may have faltered but I fought hard.

Will I go again next year? Maybe not. This was just a one-time deal and I was just happy to have gone through the experience. I came, I sang, and I smiled all the way through. No one could take that experience away from me.

Thanks to Al, Dazed and Confused, Lyka Bergen, and Fendi for all your well wishes!

    Keep up the good spirit pal – you can do it!

    Btw: Thanks for your comments on my Slow Food in Oslo post. I know you miss the very warm weather, but you won’t get it all the time in Oslo you know! Do I see you at Karl Johan before the summer vacation then?
