The Voice Auditions
NBC’s The Voice returns tonight at 8/7c, the first of a three-night premiere, and Meggywood just happens to have a little inside info for you!
Meggywood interviewed auditioner Adam Jennings, a PA native who traveled to East Rutherford, New Jersey on July 22 for his shot at a chance to make it on The Voice. Here’s what he experienced as a hopeful!
MW: When did you start singing and playing guitar? Why?
AJ: I started playing guitar when I was about 18. I’ve been singing forever and I guess I played guitar because my older brother Scott played a lil bit and I liked it.
MW: What made you want to audition for The Voice?
AJ: My friends talked me into auditioning. I never really had the confidence to do anything like that but my best friend Mark talked me into it.
MW: Walk us through the day of the audition.
AJ: Well the audition was at the Izod center in EasT Rutherford, NJ. I waited in line for about four hours and when inside, was split up to seperate entrances going into the actual arena area. I reached the booth and went inside to two judges who I sang for. After that I just left and drove home.
MW: Were you nervous or excited? How did you feel?
AJ: I was extremely nervous and excited. I didn’t know what to expect at all but I prepared myself for whatever the outcome would be.
MW: Who was “judging” at the audition? What was their reaction, what did they say?
AJ: The judges never introduced themselves actually. If they did I was so nervous at that point that I didn’t even hear them. It was a women and a man probably a little older than myself. They asked me my name, where I’m from, and why I think I can be The Voice. After I sang they told me that I did great and they liked the tone and edge to my voice. The woman also liked my look; just white jeans and a red t-shirt.
MW: Would you ever audition again? What about for another show?
AJ: I will definitely audition again and it will be for The Voice for sure. I am going to get some voice lessons and be better prepared since I went through the process once already. I loved the feeling of hearing them say they liked me so hopefully next time I’ll make it through!
