2. Audition practice.
Practice makes perfect. You should ensure that you practice every little detail once you have collected the data, this will help you polish your expertise.

3. What to wear.
For a performance outfit, make sure you choose something comfortable. You should be able to strike a balance between good looking and feeling comfortable.

When choosing a song to sing, choose the one that you can give the best and ensure that the choice of song is within your cord range. Make sure it is something within your expertise area.
