Getting Ready for AI

I'm getting ready for an early dinner because tonight is my American Idol competition! I have to be there at 7:30 to practice with the live band. The actual show starts at 9:30. I'm very excited/nervous. I don't have just a ton of expectations because in all the years I competed in pageants I never won a talent competition. Swimsuit? Yes. Interview? Yup. Evening Gown? Always. Talent-----never. Never ever not once. Well one time but that's when I tap danced so it doesn't count. So I'm not expecting much but regardless I feel really special that they asked me to do it and I'm really excited about it. It's going to be so fun tonight! The theme for the evening is rock. Today they showed me a list of the songs I had to choose from and I was like 'ohhhhh nooooo.' It was all Aerosmith, Queen, Lenny Kravitz, Chili Peppers etc. How does a GIRL sing to music like that and sound good doing it? So I asked them if I could put my own little spin on my music since it is a band playing and not a karaoke machine. They were like yeah of course do what you want. So I went and paid 6 bucks online for sheet music so I could sing the Glee version of 'Don't Stop Believing' by Journey. Hopefully the band can play it. If not I'm up a creek. I mean the regular version is fine and I can sing it but it's not impressive.
Okay I better finish getting ready. Wish me luck. I'll need it since I never win talent competitions. Scott keeps trying to remind me this isn't a pageant. True. True..... and P.S. by the way it's too bad I didn't have him around during my pageant years. I'm disturbingly impressed by his opinions/knowledge on what/how I should do stuff and all that jazz. He's crazy! And such good support. He's just excited he's going to get to see me perform for the first time ever since we've known each other. Ha! I'll post the video later. Jake informed me I HAVE to make Scott film the whole thing and I HAVE to post the video tonight. I'll try my hardest!!!
