If you have been following the reports on the WACK Auditions this is the culmination of all the competition, all the running, all the hot sauce and lordy be, all the crying. For your viewing pleasure, here is the WACK EXHiBiTiON. Also included is Watanabe’s opening MC as well as the closing where you will find out what happened to our brave and enduring hopefuls is, of course, also included. So, let’s get on with it.
We have come to the end of the auditions, and it was quite surprising at some points. I am going to gloss over a couple of things today, but I will still give the rankings lists and all the normal stuff you have been seeing. Without further ado, lets get on with the recap.
We are nearing the end and today is the last full day of the auditions. We have seen some very odd things happen over the course of this event. I am sure that there is more to come as well. So instead of me blathering on about this and that I will get down to the bare bones and make with the standings.
After all the craziness during the individual PR videos, with all the crying, drinking weird stuff, solo skits and showing ones “talents”, we needed a bit of a break. Well, we did not get one. This dance performance was seemingly all or nothing, especially with one of BiSH’s best live songs already stolen from them. Today you are really in for a treat. We have video of each performance………. nice.
Well, last night in Japan was quite the shake up at the old WACK auditions. Some very unexpected stuff happened. So, as the girls are coming out to start their morning run I will start this recap. Quite a bit to talk about. So, without any more delay, here we go……
After an eventful morning with the announcement of the first two eliminations, we were told later that there were a total of five girls gone. I do not know who the other three are yet. We will let you know in tomorrow’s morning recap.
I guess we will get on with it. The second dance performance went a little better than the first……..
As I wake up this afternoon (graveyard shift you know) I am just in time to see the start of the morning run. I was also able to check out the standings after voting and other happenings from last night ~in Japan~. It seems the rankings have shuffled a bit, though not much.
Well, they just did their first dance performance. There was a great deal of hard work by everyone. I watched the whole practice and everyone really put their all into making sure that the dances were solid. There were even some humorous episodes…….
That time Aina messed up during practice
So, I started watching today’s audition trials a bit late, I was only able to catch the very end of the morning run. After a brisk morning run what better way to recharge than with a nice breakfast. Well, after a short break in the dorm room for some vote pandering and dance practice that is.
Now, this is pretty photo heavy, and light on writing as there really wasn’t to much to say.

Practice with pour lui and Aya
