singing contests & age limits

was watching the GMA new year’s eve countdown last night with mike when i was able to watch gian magdangal, et al, plugging the february launch of pinoy idol.  suddenly, i had an idea… what if, mag-audition kaya ako?  bwahahahahahaha!  me and my wild ideas!  kaso, alam ko, the maximum age for contestants is 28yrs old.  as of now, i’m 28 but i’ll be turning 29 on april.  makaabot kaya ako?

i’m not planning on winning naman, i don’t think i will any way.  i know i’m not that good, and i lack experience.  i bet other people who will be joining are much better performers than i am.  (i once played the lead role in my sister’s school’s staging of “The Sound of Music” and i soooo sucked…tipong, pikit nyo na lang mga mata nyo coz i’m really not a good performer, moreso not a good actress.).  i just wanna take a stab at auditioning…para masabi ko namang na-experience ko.

the last time i joined a singing contest was when i was in 2nd yr college.  it was a university-wide singing contest.  i didn’t win, but i remember my dad watching and supporting me.  after the contest, he told me, “anak, magaling.  pero mabuti na yang nasubukan mo minsan.”  haha, kulang na lang sabihin nya, “wag mo nang ulitin.”

ironic.  kung kelan ako tumanda saka naman ako nag-toy with such ideas.  dati kasi, i kept on brushing off such ideas.  probably because i was too busy with acads in undergrad and work (when i was still in p&g), or because i thought i wasn’t good enough (actually, i still think that way).  pero busy rin naman ako ngayon with law school, work, my marriage and the extra-curricular activities…(although naisip ko rin naman kasi, mag-e-end na ang term namin sa lsg this feb)

oh well…bahala na.  sana abot pa ko sa age limit, makapag-audition lang.  hehe.
