I am going to participate on my first competition. I am still having second thoughts because they have never been my cup of tea just because I don't think I get to do something I love which is interact with the audience and entertain. The environment is just different and not something that appeals to me but what does appeal to me is to get feedback from the judges and just learn. So I'm still thinking of maybe not attending but if I do, I want to know your thoughts on music style. For what I've seen, the past winners of this competition have all used more modern music or arabic pop. I like that music for audience participation but for my shows I always chose classical egyptian or more traditional pieces. I love instrumental. Should I stick to my style knowing that this may give me even less chances at placing? Or should I choose something modern knowing that's what they may prefer? And I am clear that my chances at even placing are slim since the same girls compete year after year and I have always seen the winner be someone who competed the previous year. Maybe it is just my observation or coincidence. So I will be new and using (wanting to use) something that isn't too modern.
