    Last night was my first time on stage.....ever. If you remember, i had made it through the initial audition and was hoping to be one of the eight finalists.
    My day started out terrible, as i woke up with a bad migraine. I stayed up for a short time, but it kept getting worse, so i went back to bed. I took meds, and stayed in bed till 5pm. The competition was to start at 7:30pm. Finally, at 5:30 i was feeling better, so i practiced my song (Please Come to Boston) a few times, and my wife took me to the competition site. I was SOOOO nervous. I was the 4th one to sing, so fortunatly i didn't have to wait too long. I had 8 people there to cheer me on. Just like on "American Idol", there were 3 judges, 2 men and one woman.
    There is a line in my song that says "I'm the number one fan of the man from Tennessee". When i finished singing, the first judge said "I'm the number one fan of Alan Smith, (me of course) I'll tell ya, that was a GREAT performance."
    The lady judge said "That was wonderful! I actually had a couple moments when you were singing that i had to kind of hold back some tears there."
    And the third judge (the lead judge) said "You know, you could win this competition. You could win the whole darn thing! That was PERFECT. It was PERFECT. I don't know why you don't beleiev in yourself man, it's just awesome".
    Those were just snippets from their comments. I'll tell you what.......i was about freaking out. I didn't expect such high praise. And they didn't announce who was going on to the finals till the end of the competition......but from what the judges said, i KNEW i was in! (Which i was!!!)
    My wife and friends were so proud of me! I hope i don't let them down, and i do win it all.
    The finals will be held Sunday August 3rd, at the Ozaukee county fairgrounds (I believe it's called Fireman's park) in Cedarburg Wisconsin, starting at 1pm. I believe they will have the Junior Idol finals first, then our finals after that.
    Anyone that lives in the area that wants to come and cheer me on would be appreciated! Admission to the fair is FREE, so you can't beat the price!

    My wife videoed my performance, but i don't have a USB (i think thats what it's called) hookup for my video camera. I'm going to my nephews house this weekend, and i'm gonna see if there's someway he can get it loaded onto Youtube. I'll let you know how it goes.

    he might need a firewire cable to upload your video to his computer..
