Guess what? I will tell the world… I am trying out for The Voice this weekend! OMG! I have been singing all my life, and yet have never made it to a TV show audition such as The Voice or American Idol. Truth be told, I am terrified of rejection. Am I the next Kelly Clarkson? No. No one can hit those kinds of notes and I definitely can’t (not yet!!). Do I have a passion for music (especially country) and can I sing? Yeah… I think! I am so afraid to be one of those people who think they are good but are horrible, that I have suppressed my passion and kept quiet for years. Pretty much since high school when the choir teacher absolutely hated me (how could you hate me!?) and made my life awful whenever I wanted a singing part. OK, anyway, back on track! I am a huge fan of The Voice and I am so excited to even just have the chance to audition. You miss out on all chances you never take so here goes nothin’! Now… back to the current Season 5.
I have to admit, I wasn’t highly overwhelmed by the contestants on this season. I can bet the reason is because no one is solid country, and as mentioned before, country music is truly my heart and soul. That said, this is one of the most fun to watch and heart-felt seasons yet. And the talent is definitely there. (In fact, once we hit the top 5, I couldn’t even decide who I felt okay with going home.)
