HAHA, 'Twinkie'. XD Aww. I've been called a 'coconut'. I'm Filipina/Pacific Islander and I live on the border of Wisconsin and Illinois. There are like no Asians in Wisconsin and 472472472398427498372 Asians just across the border in Illinois. I grew up and went to school in Kenosha, Wisconsin where 90% people are Caucasian. I crossed the border, met Asian friends, and was ridiculed, lmao (in good fun, though; not seriously! XD).
Congratulations to everyone else that made the cut and I apologize to those that did not make it. I did not fill out a ballot (I don't like judging my competition like that D:>), but from listening alone, it was definitely some tough competition, especially since the songs and voices were very unique and had an overwhelming variety.
Also, a really big thank you to anyone and everyone that filled out the ballots. I have the utmost appreciation that you guys took the time to do that. It's people like you who are actually looking forward to the competition that I want to try my hardest for to guarantee a good show!
A meet-up sounds like fun! Is anyone else going to the Thursday night meet up? I intended to frolic there before the con. X] Ohh, man! I am so pumped for this competition! I just went to the Anime Punch con this weekend and sang my 1st round song in karaoke. I fooled around first, singing 'Viridian City,' but when it came to singing 'Yura Yura,' I kind of stiffened up and got kind of flat on the high notes. Definitely was nervous. I guess I was thinking of ACEN Idol too much. I picked it up by the end, but I'm glad I went through that experience!
It was fascinating to me how I could feel no shame running and jumping around on stage belting out 'Viridian City,' but how I was nerve-shot doing 'Yura Yura.' At least now I know what to work on, and I'll share with all my other competitors that it really helps to just let loose and think of it as having fun, rather than thinking about being judged at a competition. I think I shone way more that way at AP.
<3 I look forward to meeting all of you! I will tell you all in advance that I will not participate in any sort of drama or shenanigans. Please, let's all just have a great time; both competitors and the audience alike.
