6. Audition

Skylar's POV

"Skylar Greene?" Someone called my name.

I looked up and saw Kyle smiling at me.

"You ready for your audition?"

I started fidgeting with my hands and slowly nodded yes.

"Good," he said. "If you walk up those steps and through the curtains, there will be a lady and she will hand you a microphone. Take it and then walk to the center of the stage and stand on the big X. The judges will ask you your name and some questions to know a little bit about you and then they'll ask you to sing. Remember: the judges aren't as scary as they look. Go out there and have the time of your life."

I got up and followed Kyle's instructions. As soon as I walked through the curtains, a lady stood there smiling with a microphone in her hand.

"Hello! I'm Kayla! Here's your microphone. You will go stand on that X in the middle of the stage as soon as the act that's on right now is done."

I smiled and said thanks before watching the audition before me. It was a girl band. Three 11 years old girls attempting to do harmony isn't what the judges are looking for. The audience is laughing. I can't help but feel bad for those girls.

Once all of the judges say no, the girls run off the stage crying. That's when the nerves got to me. Yeah, I was nervous when I got here, but am I really about to go up on that stage and audition? What happens if they say yes? Will I know what I'm doing? I'm only fourteen.

My thoughts were interrupted by Kayla saying, "5...4...3...2...1!" And pushed me out on the stage.

I walked to the X on center stage. And saw Simon Cowell, Demi Lovato, Britney Spears, and Cheryl Cole in front of me. Well, I guess I'll be performing in front of two British judges and two American ones. I'll see which country likes me best!

"Hello, darling! What's your name?" Simon asked me.

"Skylar Greene." I said shyly.

"Skylar! Love the name," Britney said.

"Thank you!"

"How old are you, Skylar?" Demi asked me.

"I'll be turning fifteen in two weeks." I said.

Cheryl smiled at me and said, "How long have you wanted to be a professional singer?"

I knew a question like this would come. I just had to act confident and be honest.

"I've loved music for as long as I can remember. I love writing my own songs on my guitar and singing in my room whenever I have the time to do that." I smiled.

"Alright, love. Whenever you're ready, you may begin." Simon said.

That's when the music began. At first, it was a song I don't know the music to, but I soon realized what it was: Brokenhearted by Karmin.

I know what you're thinking: But,Sky! That wasn't one of your options when you came to the audition!

That's what I thought, too. I guess my parents just wanted to use the other songs as warm ups? I'm not sure.

The music starts and I start to sing:

This is more than the typical kinda thing

Felt the jones in my bones when you were touching me, uh oh

Didn't wanna take it slow

In a daze, going crazy, I can barely think

You're replaying in my brain, find it hard to sleep, uh oh

Waiting for my phone to blow

Uh oh yep

Now I'm here in a sticky situation

Got a little trouble, yep and now I'm pacing

Five minutes, ten minutes, now it's been an hour

Uh don't wanna think too hard, but I'm sour

Uh oh, I can't seem to let you go

See, I've been waiting all day

For you to call me baby

So let's get up, let's get on it

Don't you leave me brokenhearted tonight

Come on, that's right

Honest baby, I'll do anything you want to

So can we finish what we started

Don't you leave me brokenhearted tonight

Come on, that's right, cheerio

What's the time, such a crime

Not a single word, sipping on a Patrón

Just to calm my nerves, uh oh

Poppin' bottles by the phone

Oh yeah

Had me up, had me down, turn me inside out

That's enough, call me up

Baby I'm in doubt, uh oh

I don't even think you know, no no

See, I've been waiting all day

For you to call me baby

So let's get up, let's get on it

Don't you leave me brokenhearted tonight

Come on, that's right

Honest baby, I'll do anything you want to

So can we finish what we started

Don't you leave me brokenhearted tonight

Come on, that's right, cheerio

Anything you wanna do, I'll be on it too

Everything you say is like go with the view

Business on the front, party in the back

Maybe I was wrong, was the outfit really wack?

This kinda thing doesn't happen usually

I'm on the opposite side of it, truthfully

I know you want it so come and get it, cheerio

See, I've been waiting all day

For you to call me baby

So let's get up, let's get on it

Don't you leave me brokenhearted tonight, ohhhohohhhoohhhh

Honest baby, I'll do anything you want to

So can we finish what we started

Don't you leave me brokenhearted tonight

Come on, that's right, cheeri, cheerio

When you gonna call

Don't leave me broken hearted

I've been waiting up

Let's finish what we started, oh oh

I can't seem to let you go

Come on, that's right, cheerio, uh!

I looked around the auditorium. The audience was standing up. So were the judges. I smiled and waited for the judges responses. My heart was pounding, my palms sweaty, my head was spinning. I was pure adrenaline.

"Wow!" Demi said over the crowd. "I don't think I've ever heard a voice as incredible as yours. I mean that was like AMAZING!"

"You know," Britney began. "I'm going to be quite honest with you. At first, I was a bit skeptical of you. I mean you're fourteen, you were pretty shy at first and you're just so cute! Once I heard you hit that first note, I was like this can't be real! That was awesome!"

"Thank you so much!" I said into the microphone.

Cheryl smiled as she said, "I'm speechless. I never thought that such a young person could have so much talent! If I'm being completely honest, I think you have a great shot at winning this, babe."

I blushed and looked at the ground.

"Skylar!" Simon began. "I think that your performance was honestly the best one I've seen today."

The rest of the judges agreed and nodded their heads.

"Well, ladies," Simon said. "Time to vote! Cheryl?"

"It's an absolute yes from me!"

"Demi?"

"100% yes!"

"Britney?"

"Of course. You're amazing."

That's when it hit me. Three yeses means that I'm officially in the competition. I have a shot at being crowned champion of season 12 The X Factor!!

"And, Skylar. I'm going to say no doubt, it's a yes from me." Simon said.

I felt tears slide down my cheeks. I was so excited that I couldn't control it.

"Thank you! Thank you! Thank you so much!!!" I said as I walked off of the stage.

I handed the microphone to Kayla.

"Great performance, Skylar! I know you'll go far!" she said.

I smiled and walked backstage to my family.

Before I knew it, I was squished in a group hug consisting of my mom, dad brother, and, of course, Kyle.
