Alright pit, it's been a while since I've posted but something's come up and I want your advice.

So my dad and little sister were at some sports facility for her soccer game, and these talent representatives had this thing going where the first 100 people to text them would get a chance to audition in front of talent agents from disney, nickelodeon, maybe some other places. So today my dad gets a call telling him she got in to audition etc. etc., but my dad-as a joke- calls the person back and says "hey can my son try out too?" He tells her I'm 17, and she gets all excited saying "definately! we're looking for teenagers!" and my dad tells her I'll be there.

Now, I'm 17, 3 weeks from 18, and we all have the same opinion of the "talented" kids from disney. When my dad told me this a huge WTF registered in my mind, but as I thought about it I realized I had opportunities with this. Not being cocky, but I know that I am multi-talented and probably more than many Disney channel kids. And IF they were to ask me to pursue my talent in singing (again, I know I'm good/better than what they have), I would definitely bend their criteria.

So what I'm asking you guys is, do you have any advice for me on this audition? Like I think I'll be given a script or something, and if they ask me to sing or show other kinds of talents I can show myself as a singer/songwriter to them. I've never done an acting audition or anything like it. Also they said to wear "upscale casual" and I don't know what the hell that means. So please discuss and give me some input, and flame me if you want but what I'm saying is if I were to become one of these kids performing for disney I wouldn't turn into a Justin Bieber or Hannah Montana etc.

Just go for it you only live once. They're going to fix anything they see as not attractive. Demi Lovato had to close her gap and get their permission to dye her hair. Honestly only ok Disney stars are Nick Jonas(I'm serious), Demi Lovato and Selena Gomez. Yo're going to have to act as well.

They're not interested in your many amazing talents, they're interested in what they can sell to 12 year old girls.

Basically this. So remember TS, if you can be successful, you got yourself an unlimited supply of legit jailbait.

Do you have any audio clips?


This.

Also, I don't think you're giving enough credit to their talent pool. Sure you may not like what the other singers are bringing, but if you don't think they're constantly looking for the next big thing, then you're sadly mistaken. There are a lot of talented people out there, what makes you so special?

What are youa ctually auditioning for? It's unlikely that they're looking for a star. The winner will more than likely end up being Miley Cyrus's backup singer or a dancer or something terrible like that.

Also, Keep in mind that your compitition includes a lot of people who actually want to be auto-tuned, generic pop stars.

I lol'd at the jailbait, then I went serious, then I lol'd again. But hey keep in mind that disney has shows for 3 year stints, hannah montana, wizards of waverly place, etc. so with a new group of shows coming around they are gonna be looking for people.

I'm sure there are, it's just unlikely to be the younger, probably metal loving, people who would complain about Disney. I doubt there are masses of people who can sing, play guitar, piano, drums and write music and lyrics (despite what people think!) TS might be amazing though, I have no idea, if so then good luck to him.

Quote by Wibanez
Also they said to wear "upscale casual" and I don't know what the hell that means.


Now this I can help with, I'd describe my own fashion sense as "upscale casual", generally. White/grey/black shirts, ties, waistcoats, skinny jeans, sunglasses, V-necks, black shoes/boots, checked shirts, that kind of thing. If in doubt just copy any Jonas Brother's outfit
