In about 3 hours, I'll be playing Chopin's "The Ocean" Op 25 No 12 on the piano. I'm pretty nervous about it.

Last year I played a Rachmaninoff song, I ended up getting 2nd place.

I'm 18. My mom says that if I would've worn a tuxedo I would've won last year. But that's what she says.

So I have this tux that I bought for prom. Should I wear it? or is it over-dressing?

This is at a talent show at a county fair, in iowa.

Don't wear it. Your mom is only saying that because she's a tool of the tuxedo industry.

In fact, screw every tool of every clothing line and go naked.

wear the jacket with a t shirt and jeans. not overdressing but not under either.
The world doesn't revolve around you. If it does, beware. You're probably about to pass out drunk.

Wear corpsepaint, bullet belt, cut off t-shirt, leather boots and trousers and come out with a BC Rich, then sit down at the piano and play. They won't see it coming.

Wear as many tuxedos as there are notes in the song. Then after every note tear off another layer. No one will see it coming ... you know how to end the performance.

Wear those old school white/grey haired wigs they always had in old English courts with the suit and then pull a Slash and put a tophat and sunglasses on over that. Either that or don't wear the suit, it's a talent show, not a fashion show.

Wear a tuxedo t-shirt, because it says, "I want to be formal, but I'm here to party."

EDIT: Damnit, beaten to it

lol actually says, "this is far as im going to go"

You can't play something so sophisticated and not we....

This is at a talent show at a county fair, in iowa.

All of the above is null and void.

In fact, why are you playing something like that at a fair in Iowa? You should be playing some bland country if you wanna win that one.

Edited for unnecessary cursing. I'm tired. Big whoop, wanna fight about it?

i've played at this thing many times. first, i played The Entertainer, then Linus & Lucy (the peanuts song). I didn't win anything with those two. And then last year I played the rachmaninoff song, something in c # minor... and won 2nd.

so this year I'm playing chopin, and don't know what to wear. ****.

If you wear a leisure suit you'll win no matter what you play.

Okay okay I think you might have convinced me. I'll go with the tux. And I think it'll be just fine if I'm confident and comfortable with it.

Thanks pit. I'll give you an update on how it went when I return...

Translation: Go as a knife wielding clown and smile leeringly at children throughout the perfomance.

You might need to rest the knife on the piano while playing.

Overdress, but do it in a toungue-in-cheek way, if you know what I mean. Really go overboard, try to get a tophat, cane and a monocle if you can. Really make it seem like you are taking the piss.
