Hi guys, I'm so excited so lets get the applications rolling in! ^_^
25th May 2009, 6:23 PM
It sounds interesting, does it only has to be one Sim the entire contest? And any age requirements? Like only Teenagers and YA?
25th May 2009, 7:49 PM
You can have two entries per person and any age from teen to adult.
25th May 2009, 8:53 PM
Hm... May I judge?

-Name: Reijiro Matsuda
Okay, yeah it's me Reijiro. Most people call me Rei, I've always loved to sing and when I heard about this I decided to take my shot, and I do love a good photo oppertunity.
My full body shot, it's not much but then again the place I was waiting in to audition was kind of dull and drab. Oh I should mention the fact that I'm also full of attitude. My favorite style of music? Well I like a bit of everything but right now I'm concentraiting more so on Japanese Pop, things like that.
Here I am where I'm the happiest, on stage. They picked the type of music and I had to sing the words, It was interesting. I was nervous at first but once I got into it it flowed so easily.
Music is a part of my soul, and when I sing it comes from deep within my heart. I let the music take total control of my mind, body, heart and soul. I let it do what it wants, and I love it.

I'll judge, if you'd like me to be

-Name: Dani Scott
-Address: 11 Flamingo St., Trout Harbor Island
-Interests: Singing and music in general.
Hello, my name is Dani. Yeah, it's kinda boyish, but, I'm a total tomboy most of the time, so the name fits! Born and raised in Trout Harbor has caused me to be sheltered from some things other singers get to experience, like voice lessons and big time schools and classes. All I have is what Trout Harbor has to offer, which isn't anything, so, I have basically gotten to where I am now by my self.
My music style of choice is pop, obviously, however I also like to explore other genres such as rock, hip hop, and r&b. I have many idols who I look up to for different reasons, so I find it hard to pin point just one. This is a chance of a life time, and I don't plan on taking it easy, not even in the auditions. I am here to bring it!
In the auditions, I was totally psyched. How many people actually say that when they first go out infront of judges? I might of stumbled for like the first 5 seconds, but, once I got in the groove, I was a force to be wreckened with!
No matter what, I think that every one should go out there and give it their best. Sure, I might not make it to the end, but I'm going to fight my way as far as I can. Just remember, "You're going to be a shinin' star, In fancy clothes and fancy cars. And then you'll see you're gonna go far, 'Cause everyone knows just who you are..."(T.I. feat. Rihanna)
--Hope it works :) I was going to create themed wallpaper, but my HomeCrafter doesn't run right with my game and computer.... sucks.--
26th May 2009, 5:59 AM
I'll add the other stuff tomorrow when I go in game, sorry about that.
27th May 2009, 4:27 PM
Wow guys great apps...I can't wait to see if anyone else joins.
30th May 2009, 1:28 AM
Guys get your friends to come join we need more people so we can continue the contest.
30th May 2009, 3:28 AM
How long are you taking applications? I have been sick lately and struggling to get my stuff for the other contests I'm already in finished by their due dates.
You don't have a date listed that I can see, so I was hoping that I could finish up what I have going before starting a new contest.
30th May 2009, 4:50 AM
Round 1 starts June first but I will be taking apps until June 8th.
1st Jun 2009, 4:48 PM
can't wait for you to post round 1 today.. if you still post it today :)
2nd Jun 2009, 1:14 AM
You have been excepted into the competition! Your first challenge is to sing at D's Five Star Restaurant, a local restaurant that has a 5 star rating. They want you to sing at their restaurant.
2 pictures of you singing.
1 picture of you getting ready for the competition
1 picture of peoples reaction
I hope we get more people if not we might not be able to continue the contest!!
2nd Jun 2009, 1:58 AM
Whew... more entries for all my contests I'm in! Something tells me being in 6 contests and hosting 1 isn't the best idea, but hey, you all need contestants, and it's not like my 'lazy bones' have anything else to do during this summer... besides work and working out.. .but we know how that goes :)
Any who, I think I"m going to stay up till the wee hours of the morning and complete all of these 4(?) rounds for all these contests I'm in... [plus I think that when people see others rounds, then it makes them wanna join in the fun...hopefully! Cause I really like the idea of this contest.]
Ok, enough rambling....
...Off to sim :)
3rd Jun 2009, 4:29 PM
We will not be able to continue if we don't get 6 more people by next monday.
3rd Jun 2009, 10:45 PM
I haven't started an ap yet since I haven't finished my last house entry for the SRE contest, but I plan on getting an entry in here before your deadline.
4th Jun 2009, 5:21 PM
5th Jun 2009, 10:33 AM
I'll fill in the details after I get pics taken and uploaded for Round 1, too. Just wanted you to know that I did get my entries going.
5th Jun 2009, 11:40 PM
Wow thats good!!
6th Jun 2009, 1:18 AM
If I make a second application for a different Sim, does it count as yet another contestant so you can get your quota up?
6th Jun 2009, 4:52 AM
HEY... IF you allow people to make two apps... like Deatherella asked, then I'll too make a second one to help you out :) ... if you want and if you allow it?
6th Jun 2009, 5:53 PM
Ok Ok I'm working on my app.Don't worry.
6th Jun 2009, 9:44 PM
Deatherella and Clw8, yes it does! bb4daddy123 thanks..I really do appreciate that.
7th Jun 2009, 3:40 PM
Round 1 and Apps are due June 8th 12:00 pm est.
7th Jun 2009, 8:44 PM
I'll do my round 1 but shouldn't we wait and see if more people are going to join? I'd hate to spend alot of time on my round and have the contest close on me... :(. On second thought I think I'll toss in another application myself, I'll jsut fire up my game in a bit.
7th Jun 2009, 9:55 PM
Here's another Application... to help ya out!
-Name: Nick Atwood
-Address: 11 Flamingo St., Trout Harbor Island
-Interests: Singing, drinkin', and his girlfriend whom he lives with: Dani Scott!
Call me Nick, cuz that's my name. I guess you could call me the local bar karaoke singer, cuz that's where I'm found frequently. But, when I was in highschool I was in a garage band....lead singer. The band sucked, and went absolutely no where, but we had fun. The experience, however, has taught me the basics.
As you may or may not can tell from the way I look, I like to sing like Alturnative and Rock music. Nothing slow and sappy, but nothing head banging either. I like to occassionally sit and think up my own lyrics, but have yet to come off with a perfect song. For now, I'm stuck with singing the music of my idols.
I brought it at the auditions, and gave it my best shot. It's hard for me to not get so caught up that I forget that I'm in a small room . . . singing to just three people. But, oh well, atleast I sing to be heard.
I hope to eventually walk out of this experience with something that'll last a life time. I think that the journey really does begin here, and that I belong in the mix. No matter what, this will always be something that I remember - win or lose.
7th Jun 2009, 11:08 PM
happyasabunny, I have a really bad flu going on -- spend more time in bed than out -- that's why you haven't seen anything else from me yet. I hope I feel well enough to finish up more stuff tomorrow before the deadline. But I just thought I'd warn you since I am really super sick.
7th Jun 2009, 11:32 PM
I might give an extension if other people need them too!
8th Jun 2009, 12:37 AM
Well, here is my application. I didnt want this to close. Its a bit rushed as its quite late where I am now and I have work tomorrow.
I hope it is ok...?
Name: Art Chessington
Hi, I am Art. I am a student studying Astrology at Sim Ville University amd I have to admit, I am a bit of a bookworm. I have been told by very close friends and family that I have a good singing voice have really encouraged me to join this competition.
To be honest, I wasnt sure whether to join or not but after a long hard think about it, apart from the encouragment given to me, I wanted to know for myself just how good people think I am. If I dont impress the judges then at least then I know I have tried.
This what I look like in whole. Not too bad, average looking I guess. I could do with a bit of help in the style department. My style at the moment is the casual look.
I was a bit shaky to start of with because after all, I tend to only to sing to myself when I'm in the shower or at family gatherings. After a bit I relaxed and started to enjoy myself.
Oops...getting a bit carried away. A cheesy classic always does that to me. They dont write songs like they use to any I cant help but sing my heart out to these.
8th Jun 2009, 12:57 AM
I am willing to post a application but it will have to be tomorrow (England time) because it is 12am now and I need my bed lol. Is that Ok, or will I be too late?
8th Jun 2009, 1:13 AM
LouBarratt88, I think you will be ok. If I have looked this up correctly, at the moment its Sunday 7th June 7pmish EST...you are about 5 hours ahead.
8th Jun 2009, 7:45 PM
I'll have my second app in sometime today..I had a massive migraine last night and felt horrible otherwise it would have been done. I'll also post my round 1s as well :).
8th Jun 2009, 9:24 PM
man... i have forgotten about round 1 due like 3.5 hours ago..... i suppose this will be extended, yeah?
8th Jun 2009, 10:53 PM
I really could do with an extension for round 1 too....
8th Jun 2009, 11:30 PM
I slept the day away and woke up feeling better than I have for days (in other words, I've stayed awake for more than an hour), so if it's okay, after I take a shower (cuz not only do I look like death warmed over, I smell like it, too, from running a fever for five days straight) I can fire up my game and get my round1 done for the entry I already have and make up another sim for a second entry.
9th Jun 2009, 3:26 AM
***To be finished***
Its really late here and I need to go to bed. I will finish this asap tomorrow!
