    Soooo nervous!

    So on Thursday, I'm going to be performing at a local venue called "Prescott Idol." It's touted as the local version of American Idol, but basically it's a glorified karaoke contest. I'm going to be singing "Little Miss" by Sugarland. I know I'll probably do fine (the competition that I've seen thus far hasn't been too stiff, really), but I am still sooooooooo nervous! I'm shy by nature (although you'd never know it if you met me because I tend to force myself to be outgoing...had to when I worked four years as a rental car don't make money if you are shy), so getting up and performing in front of hundreds of people is a bit...nerve-wracking. Lol Not to mention the fact that my parents and quite a few of my friends (especially from the community theater I'm involved with...we just finished our run of Sweeney Todd a few weeks ago and it was AMAZING...I only did costuming and stage hand, though) will be there.

    So, does anyone have any tips or tricks for beating the nerves, before or during the performance?

    Use them, don't let them over whelm you. Once you get started they will go away. Imagine you are just singing to your horse, in the shower etc... Break a leg!!!

    Thanks, everyone! Friday morning they put the videos of the previous night's performances up on the website of the local radio station that is sponsoring the event, so I'll put the link up.

    If you need to, look upward, think upward, raise your chin and chest upward and sing to the lights. Wish you could tape it and show us.
    Good luck!

    Tiny, I'm going to try to get my friend to video it with my digital camera (it's 12.1MP and is one of those that's a step down from a DSLR but a step up from a regular point-and-shoot) and see if I can upload it to YouTube. If we can, I'll post it on here.

    Well, I did it! I think I did pretty well, too! I didn't have any major problems, except cracking on the very first note, but that wasn't that noticeable except to me. This was at an outdoor venue (the courthouse square) and I even had a fire truck go past behind me halfway through my performance with its lights and sirens blaring, but it didn't even phase me at all (other than I thought "Wow. Really?!" and kinda rolled my eyes). As I was walking off stage, the MC leaned over to me as he was walking up the steps and said "You have a wonderful voice!" As I was walking to sit with my parents (couldn't find them before the show started, which it started half an hour before I thought it did and I didn't find out until about an hour before I had to be there...and I performed SECOND!), I had several people tell me that I did a great job and that I have a "beautiful voice" (the person who said that sounded VERY sincerely impressed). There were only a couple other people who were even remotely good, so hopefully that'll help my chances.

    I'll put the link up to the vid of me tomorrow when it gets posted on the radio station website.
