Mother knows best, listen to your mother, it's a scary world out there. Mother knows best, one way or another, something will go wrong I swear. Mother's right here, Mother will protect you. Darling's here's what I suggest: Skip the drama, stay with Mama. 'Cause Motheeeeer, knows best.
While it's true that it's one opinion, how many people trying out for these shows say that sane statement when the judges tell them they aren't as good as they think they are. If someone really wants to pursue it, they should listen to some of these opinions and get voice training.
theres always going to be people who wont take you seriously, but you just have to rise above that
OP don't let anybody discourage you. Try out for the competition and good luck :)
Better at home with mom rather than on national television or in front of a crowd, and that's what family's for.
Although your mum didn't have to let you down in such a way, I agree that it's always better to get the honest truth from your mother or someone really close to you, rather than being put down and humiliated at the competition. Especially if there's an audience involved.
Jw90 - No. The proper response was NOT laughing, nor was it to lie and say the singing was great. The best response for a supportive parent would have been, "I love you very much and there are lots of things that you are great at. Singing just isn't one of them."
