New Zealand's Got Talent #4 - The Audition

We got up at 5am having had approximately 5hours sleep - on our way to NZ's first New Zealand's Got Talent!
Ethan was still in his boxers without breakfast and expecting us to be arriving an hour after what we'd planned.
Being the first people there, standing in line with the constant, heavy rain holding us captive from moving much outside we figured we'd keep ourselves entertained and before long I was pulling out the greatest jokes one could muster up with little sleep.
Cutting a long story short, we were at the front of the line that gradually started building up in numbers, wearing only gumboots, stubbies, a singlet, a fluro orange workers jacket and a beenie all while the rain.... continued to pour from the heavens.
We were interviewed and filmed numerous times - I think somehow the fluro orange and silver reflective strips, and of course the massive ladder towering behind us drew some of the cameras attentions.

We had the awesome support of friends to come and see us audition, unfortunately they weren't allowed in the audition room but were happy to sit with us in the line and hang out in the rain together. Ah... friends.

Here's an insight to the feelings before the audition:


The audition rocked, we hear back in a few days whether we made it into the next round and therefore filmed and shown on TV.
New Zealand.... you do have talent.
Make sure you keep your eyes out for updates! Until next time - keep safe.

Typical Rhys, stealing all the limelight. Though you can't help if you're photogenic I spose...

Gerry said...

Hi guys
Have you heard whether you are through yet? We've not heard anything, so my guess is that we did not make it.

Rhys Lake said...

Hey Gerry - yeah we got through. I've done a recent post about finding out that we're through.

Hold strong dude - I'm sure you'll find out soon! What'd you guys do in your audition?

Gerry said...

Hi Rhys, you are quick on the draw...
My daughter sang solo. She is 13.
I had a missed call from an unknown number on the said Friday, but they did not leave a message...
If the next round is that soon, she might not be available anyway. She is currently in LA with teamNZ at the World Champs for the performing arts. You should check it out for next year. The NZ franchise can be found at www.aimtofame.co.nz
Good luck for the next round

Rhys Lake said...

Oh that's cool - she must be pretty good to be in LA!!

Yeah the unknown number thing was the same for me, it's likely to be them. I think that they call everyone regardless of what the result is anyway.

The next round is held 8th and 9th of August as far as I know - let me know when you find out what the result is - I'd love to hear!

Btw, how'd you find my blog?

I inclination not concur on it. I assume polite post. Particularly the title attracted me to review the unscathed story.

The writer of life-bringit.blogspot.com has written a superior article. I got your point and there is nothing to argue about. It is like the following universal truth that you can not disagree with: If you stick some five pound notes in your ears, you will have cashiers. I will be back.
