I'm doing it! August 31st... eeek!!


I need to come up with a few options for audition songs.... any ideas? The first round of auditions is acapella, so it doesn't matter what key the original is in, I can shift it to my register (Baritone) with no problem. I know I want something contemporary, rock/pop, maybe country, that hasn't been overdone on singing competition shows already....

help!!

OMG Randy I'm excited for you!
Break a leg! Or should I say break a tonsil?


I can't think of any songs ATM, but I'll think of something.

That's awesome! I was thinking of doing this too...

What kind of music styles suit your voice best, from those genres? If we know we can suggest specific songs.

Best of luck to both of you. Wish I could be of help picking out songs, but my musical abilities and knowledge only extend as far as knowing what I like.

Hella sweet!!! Are you auditioning on the 31st in LA as well?? They're saying the lineup starts at 7am, I'm thinking either camp out overnight, or show up by 5... undisclosed location as of now...

I'm looking at Rob Thomas, George Michael, Dave Matthews, Robbie Williams, etc... so far. Would love to do Adele or Christina Perri, but they're seriously overplayed right now, and being used in auditions ad nauseum...

I don't usually watch these kinds of shows, but if any vb members are going to be on, I may have to check it out. Good luck, you guys.

I've always liked these 3 GM songs...

Freedom
Father Figure
Too Funky

How about something from Train? I think "Calling All Angels" is beautiful.

Don't know how appropriate these suggestions are, but I like:

Rob Thomas - Ever the Same; Someday

Robbie Williams - Feel; Angels
