We had an early night today, thank goodness! After the morning rehearsal, we ran everyone's talent on the stage for the lighting and camera crew. It was so exciting to finally see everyone's talent! And wow, were they amazing! I don't know how the judges are going to pick!
After rehearsal, we had a Meet and Greet session with the judges. They each introduced themselves and their opinions and answered a fishbowl question. Earlier in the day, every contestant wrote a question down for the judges and each judge picked one question out to answer. It was so refreshing to hear that they really just want to get to know us during the interview instead of hearing a bunch of facts we memorized. Of course, this is exactly what everyone has been telling me, but it is definitely much more reassuring to hear it straight from the judges. They really seem like an amazing group of people who care about each of our accomplishments and want a real person.
Now I am preparing for tomorrow's busy day. I have interview at 9:45 (10:45 up there) so pray for me! I miss you all so so much and can not wait to see you when I get back! I love you!
