YG Family Auditions!

So as some of you may know, I am an aspiring singer and a major YG Fan! So when I heard YG Family were having auditions right here in Sydney, I grabbed the opportunity!

I won’t bore you with the minor details but basically, we got to Chatswood very early (mind you I live almost two hours away) and I got to be the 14th Auditionee (is that even a word?) !!

Lucky Number 14!

Like my haircut? 🙂

I sang 아파 (slow) by 2NE1. I knew it was a popular song…. but I didn’t think it was that popular… I was Number 14, and I met two other people who sang the same song before me. Can you imagine how many other people would have sung it after?

Anyway, here’s a little snippet from my audition….

The night before I had completely lost my voice from recording with my band, but thanks to steam inhalations, ginger, honey, lemon and prayers I got my voice back long enough to sing!

Did you audition for YG? Or any other Korean companies such as JYP last year? Rumour has it that SM Town will be having auditions in Sydney later on in the year, so for you Sydney siders out there, keep your eyes peeled!

Anyway, I’m keeping positive but if I don’t get it this time around, YG, you’ll be seeing me again. I’ll be auditioning in Seoul next year. 🙂 I’ll leave you guys with Park Bom’s audition for YG Family!

Extra trivia: Did you know Park Bom was rejected from YG multiple times before finally being accepted after three years? (So to everyone who auditioned, stay positive!)

    질문 있어요… Well, 질문들이 있어요… (Hope that’s right! Still learning!)
    Anyway, when you walked into the audition, what did they say to you, and what did you have to say? (like, did you introduce yourself and song, do they ask if you will be dancing or other talents? things like that) Also, were there many non-Asians there? If so, do you know if any of them auditioned?

    대단히 감사합니다!

    • Hi! 😀 Basically, since there were so many people there they don’t really say anything to you. They’re not the auditioners, they are just three people from YG who take the actual videos back to Korea to show the actual auditioners.

      When I got there I only had the opportunity to say hi and say my name & song then it was straight into singing and we all only had about 30 seconds each. There were a few non-asians there but not many and yeah, they auditioned 🙂

      I hope this helps!

        Yes, it helps a lot! Thank you so much! I’m planning to audition in LA in July, so your reply is very helpful! I hope both of us have luck in our dreams to become singers!

    Do you know if anyone just danced and didn’t sing? I’d really appreciate it if you replied!

    Just wondering if you saw anyone who danced and sang simultaneously, or if they do for example rapping, singing and dancing, do they get a chance to do it separately?
    Thank youuuuuuu and best wishes,

    • Hi 🙂 There were some people who did sing and dance at the same time but I don’t think you can do three separate things unless the judges particularly want to see more… however there’s never any harm in asking!

      Good luck!
