The day of X-Factor auditions was long and tedious. I layed down around 12am and couldn't fall asleep. So instead of trying to sleep, I spent the whole morning getting ready. I was basically working off of 3-4 hours of sleep from Friday night. In deed, I was tired but at the moment it seemed like a good idea to get ready instead of forcing myself to sleep.
I left my house around 2:50am with a heavy bag, my shirt/jacket on a hanger, a folding chair and my umbrella. The weight of all those items bared a burden throughout my whole body but I keep my eyes on the prize.
I caught the bus I desired and arrived at the LA Sports Arena when there was only a few people visible. Within the next 30mins to an hour a floods of people stood out. I guess we all thought we were wise by showing up early. Unfortunately, it didn't make a difference whether we arrived at at 1am or at 8am. The audition order were based on the tickets we received the day before.
What a waste of time. I should of stayed my behind home and slept. At the least, I'm glad I brought a chair with me. The majority of the early birds stood up for hours pointlessly. I slept uncomfortably in my chair with nothing to lean on. My poor neck was whipping back and forth.

They probably started letting people in after 10am. In the middle of the arena there was over 30 booths filled with producers and Sony executives interviewing individual people. Organizers called out groups of people out according to their tickets. Then one by one people walked into a booth. The decision process took about 1 min or so. If I'm not mistaken I finally auditioned around 1pm in booth 12. Nevertheless, I came in, he asked me a few questions, I sang the song as planned and he said, "Thank you but its going to be a no." I said thank you and I walked out smiling as I did when I came in.
I could imagine that he probably thought I was crazy singing my Day-O song. I even saw his eyes drifted a few times. Regardless of what he thought, I made a choice, did what I set out to do and believe it or not I'm still believe I'm the X-Factor. Plus, I got to take this cool picture with Pepsi afterward. Check me out.
