MY CUBE ENTERTAINMENT AUDITION EXPERIENCE!
It’s been outrageously since a long time ago my last post and I understood that I generally get going every one of my posts discussing how terribly long it’s been since I last posted. Well.
At any rate, I’ve been getting many remarks on my different tryout blog entries as of late so I figured it was time I expounded on my generally “effective” tryout. To be extremely fair, a large portion of this tryout was a haze to me thinking about that it happened over three years prior when I was 12-13 years of age, in the time when I wasn’t all that into contributing to a blog or web-based media. I will place in a disclaimer here and say that I don’t 100% recall the occasions that occurred and that there MAY be a few errors. Additionally, it has been for a little while from that point forward and they might do things any other way now!
The explanation it took me such a long time to post with regards to this is basically in light of the fact that I have no evidence that it really occurred. As referenced, the tryout happened over three years prior and I didn’t consider taking pictures/expounding on it around then this blog didn’t exist then, at that point. I’ve burrowed around and have seen insane measures of disdain on web journals where individuals guarantee to have come to the second or third adjusts of tryouts, and I didn’t know whether I was willing or ready to endure that sort of analysis, so that was most likely the principle reason I was so reluctant to post this.
However at that point I understood, it’s dependent upon you all to choose if you decide to question/accept this and I can’t effectively persuade you in still up in the air to suspect something! So I will make an effort not to compel anything down your throat! I additionally have in a real sense nothing to acquire from lying except for ideally this will give no less than ONE individual a superior thought of how the tryout went down and furthermore give some accommodating tips (?).
So back in March (I think) 2013, I went to the second Cube Star (I feel that is the thing that it’s called) tryouts in Seoul. Again, I was insane fortunate on the grounds that I didn’t get ready for my outing to Korea to harmonize with the tryout and just looked into it after I had booked my tickets. If I don’t recall mistakenly, there was a way of pursuing the tryout online prior to heading down, however there were many stroll in auditionees who weren’t turned down all things considered.
First and front generally, there were soooooo many individuals at the tryout. More than at JYP or SM without a doubt. PROTIP: GO EARLY!! I tried out with 2 different companions and we stood by just about 2 hours before we even got a number slapped onto our chests. We were there at around 11am (I think) and I was just finished with everything at almost 6pm. It was really standard system, we needed to finish up application structures with the common essential data and afterward from that point on, it was only a ton of pausing. We were given guidelines to investigate the camera and not at the adjudicators and to remain behind a tape on the floor. Likewise, my companions and I were noticeably more youthful than the normal group there however there was certainly no absence of very small children all things considered.
So… It was fundamentally an entire ton of pausing and anxious visiting before my number at last got called. This was actually similar to JYP and SM tryouts where they played a lot of Cube craftsman MVs in the holding up region. (Gracious yes! I was very shocked to observe that there were a respectable number of outsiders present also.) When it was at last my move, I was raised a stairwell and into a different room. Since I went to the Seoul tryout, it was held at the Cube Entertainment preparing building itself. Furthermore, what I understand now is that the appointed authorities were a LOT more amiable than those at JYP and SM who simply emotionless ly gazed at me. The appointed authorities (there were 2) were amazingly great and smiley and permitted me to sing all of what I had arranged.
For Cube tryouts, you really tryout ALONE. You don’t go in a gathering of 5 or 10, dissimilar to different tryouts I’ve been as well, AND you are permitted to present yourself AND exhibit more than one ability, the two of which are not permitted at JYP or SM tryouts. While this makes the circumstance more nerve-destroying, it likewise caused me to feel somewhat more unique since I felt like they were really setting aside the effort to genuinely get to know the auditionees.
I sang “If I Die Young” by The Band Perry and really figured out how to complete all of what I had arranged without being halted (not at all like at SM and JYP moan). I was then inquired as to whether I needed to rap, since I had recorded it on my application, so I rapped Nicki Minaj’s “Superbass” yet changed a portion of the verses. After which, I was given the choice to move. Presently this is a real CHOICE. If you say “OK”, they’ll put on irregular music and watch you dance for a decent a large portion of a moment. Furthermore, in the event that you say “no”, they’ll basically demand for you to disappear and continue on to the following individual. PROTIP: ALWAYS SAY YES. Make a move TO SHOWCASE YOUR TALENT AND KEEP THE JUDGES’ EYES ON YOU.
Thus, clearly, I said OK, and moved to an arbitrary piece of music they put on. I have no memory of what melody it was, yet after I was done, I left. As I was leaving, one of the adjudicators taught me to remain behind, and now, I was more anxious than anything. I was in an unfamiliar nation and I was 13 and the two my companions were missing and I very needed my folks HAHA. A similar adjudicator then, at that point, proceeds to say that they need to see me dance, and let me know that they would play new music and that I needed to free-form… once more.
Alright, so this is the place where the confusions started. I do have some hiphop and road jazz dance foundation yet I am in no way, shape or form a genuine artist or sufficient to free-form for a broad timeframe, so I was somewhat shaking from my perspective by then. I don’t exactly recall without a doubt, however I’m really sure they played a Usher melody. I made an honest effort to furrow and move like I really knew what I was doing, which I guess I somewhat did, however I certainly WASN’T GOOD. I was really humiliated and off-kilter.
PROTIP: Be ready to move regardless of whether you simply joined to sing, and sing regardless of whether you simply joined to dance!!!!
From that point onward, they inquired as to whether I could sing a more “remarkable” melody. I faltered for a little while on the grounds that I arranged nothing else, yet at the same at last wound up singing “Inconceivable” by Shontelle (additionally my JYP tryout melody), and was then pulled aside by a male staff who let me know that they needed to talk with me.
They welcomed me into a different room on a similar floor, 2 to 3 entryways down. The new room I was in was somewhat little, and there was just 1 table and several seats against one of the dividers. I was told to sit on a seat before an enormous CUBE ENTERTAINMENT standard and needed to hang tight for around 5 minutes before one more woman and a similar male staff came in conveying a mount and a camera. The female staff part reclined across from me with my application structure while the man remained behind her with the mount. (She talked ideal English incidentally!)
PROTIP: Don’t let your race/identity/semantic capacities HINDER you from trying out!
She let me know that they planned to ask me several inquiries about myself and that I should answer as normally as could really be expected (while investigating the camera) AND in every one of the dialects I could.
So folks, VERY IMPORTANT PROTIP: DO NOT lie about the dialects you can talk on the application structure, it WILL cause issues down the road for you in the ass directly about here.
