Yesterday was pretty eventful as was the beginning of today. SO lets get right down to the nitty gritty. The girls that were up for elimination this morning were:
・アヤ・エイトプリンス (Aya Eightprince)
・ポリ・ウブ (Pori Ubu)
・キイロコ・バンパイア (Kiiroko Vampire)
I am going to clarify something I mentioned yesterday about the new rules. During the performance of WACK is FXXK today the team lead by Ayuni D was exempt from penalty. The other four teams, each lead by a member of BiS battled not only to stay in the audition but also to stay in BiS. To lose this performance meant you pretty much lose your job. Now, on with the coverage.
6:00 and time to play cards to see who gets to stay and who is eliminated. It was quite an exciting time, even if you had no idea what was actually happening. It looked like a super high stakes game of Uno.
Dinner was eaten and then there was another round of one on one interviews. After that they went off to practice for tomorrows performances.
At 6:00 the 5 girls in the elimination challenge, ミャークラブ (Myaclub) dropped out during the night, gathered to see who had memorized the most places of pi to dodge elimination.
Lunch and a bus ride back to the gymnasium for practice started off the second half of the day. The next song up for performance was Plastic2Mercy. The hopefuls had until 17:00 to practice.
I covered the dismissals that happened at 6:00 today at the end yesterday’s second post. The remaining audition participants look like this.
After a short journey the 28 girls arrived at the island, a few photos were taken of the group and they moved off to their lodging area. Once inside Watanabe explained the rules of the audition.
Yes, it is that time of year again. Time to wonder what tricks Junnosuke Watanabe is going to pull during the annual WACK Auditions. This year we have quite a packed field of hopefuls and this first day was not without interest.
Just after I got an email telling me my box set for this CD was on the way the MV dropped. I really didn’t know what to expect and I am still trying to process all of it. THe MV certainly is something, no doubt about that.
