[Updated!] Auditions, Round 1
(things are heating up)

By misteryeo

2.30 - 3pm, Thursday, 1 March 2007

> Briefing and Q&A for all Aspiring Singers at AVA Room 1 <

> Briefing and Q&A for all Enthusiastic Emcees at the Space <

Not to worry, both events are not compulsory. Students who decide not to or are unable to attend either event can keep themselves updated by following this weblog.

4 - 6pm, Monday, 5 March 2007

> 1st Round of Auditions (Day 1) for Singers at the Library <

UPDATED! The judges for this round are Miss Jill Lee & Mr Maran. Singers are expected to come prepared to sing either an English or Mandarin song. For your information, it has been decided that Mrs Geraldine Tay will join Miss Lee and Mr Maran for the 2nd Round of Auditions.

Both judges will assess the singers in these qualities: (a) Vocal Quality, (b) Pitch, (c) Sense of Rhythm & (d) Presentation. They DO NOT require the singers to (i) remember all the lines (they can sing with the help of lyric sheets), (ii) sing the entire song (they will stop singing when asked to do so by the judges) and (iii) sing from the song from the 1st line (they can decide the starting point of their performances).

The judges also have appealed for calmness and composure from the singers who will stand and sing before them.

Last but not least, the judges will announce their joint verdict at the end of every audition. The verdict is either (a) "Yes, you are through to the next round!" or (b) "You're a Wildcard. Await the Final Results, which will be announced on 8 March 2007, and continue to believe in yourself!"

3 - 4.30pm, Wednesday, 7 March 2007

> 1st Round of Auditions (Day 2) for Singers at the Library <

IMPORTANT!! 7 March 2007 is the last day of auditions. THE TOP 30 LIST WILL BE ANNOUNCED HERE AT 1800 HRS ON 8 MARCH 2007. So stay tuned at idolise.

Hi kenneth and peisi

First and foremost, thank you for registering your interest in HI Idol. Well, I'm sorry to inform you that all events related to HI Idol, including the Grand Finals, are considered school functions. Hence only invited guests will be allowed to attend them.

And for your information, our school has not ruled out inviting former students of HIHS to attend the Grand Finals. However, space is a real issue, because the school hall can only accomodate so many students.

Last but not least, I'd like to urge you to continue supporting HI Idol at this weblog idolise as well as the HI Idol YouTube Channel.

Hi mr unknown

Through HI Idol, our school hopes to identify students who are not just competent and confident with the microphone. They should be good role models in other aspects too.

Anyway, at this point in time, I'm unable to provide idolise readers with more information on the influence of student votes. However, I have great faith that this event will not be just a popularity contest.

Hey people!

Whether or not people form outside could be invited to watc the Grand Finals, we must all remember that this is not a popularity contest but a singing contest.

Purely based on talents, not on your popularity. I wish all the singers good luck and look out for my debut entry! :D

Stay tuned to idolise for the results!
