Traveling Auditions Provoke Concerns

An advertisement that hit the Quad City air last week has made some confusion.

As a traveling show asking for kids to participate in their talent competitions referenced the Disney channel.

There are questions parents need to ask before signing up for any talent scouting group.

First, who's been successful with this company?

Get their references and see what children with similar backgrounds have been able to break into the field.

Second, get everything in writing and read the fine print.

That will explain what to do if you're not satisfied and whether a refund is available.

And third, take your time.

Being rushed is why one local woman chose not to put any money down.

"Do you like Disney, do you watch, well I can't even think of the shows on there," says Misty DePauw. She took her daughter Samantha to the audition after hearing the radio ad.

"(She's) very into some of the Disney shows, and now with YouTube and stuff being able to put your own video's on, who doesn't want to be a star?"

They went to an audition session hosted by "The Event." A traveling company that sells vacation packages combined with a talent competition. But after doing some homework, Misty decided not to buy in.

"I think they're trying to make some fast money off people, and it's sad that they're using a child's dream," says DePauw.

TV 6 investigated those claims to see if others feel the same. The BBB says while issue come up with this company. Their marketing campaign is legitimate.

But they suggest other parents considering these types of things do what DePauw did, and do their homework.

"It's really your job as a consumer to ask as many questions as you can," says Quad Cities BBB representative Patt Englander.

She says it's smart to take extra care with any traveling company.

"When companies come in, they're here for a short period of time and then they leave, it's difficult to track that information."

Englander says there's lots of places to get information. The BBB, the state attorney general's office, even the local police department.

"They have information on companies that kind of come through town."

DePauw says it was a learning experience. And it encouraged her daughter to try some new skills.

"She's asked about getting into some dancing so maybe, we'll have to see," says DePauw.

The X Factor Season 2 USA: Fashionable Interview with Paige Thomas

The X Factor Season 2 USA: Fashionable Interview with Paige Thomas

It has been a rough journeying for Paige Thomas on The X Factor. During the auditions, we saw Kaci Newton mocking the single Mom as she ready for her audition. Then in Boot Camp, there seems to be a strong battle going on between her and CeCe Frey. Will all the troubles be worth it or will Paige's dreams be cut short before the live shows start? More episodes will tell that fate, but today Paige talked with Reality Wanted in an exclusive interview about the battle with CeCe, forgetting the lyrics and much more.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: What made you initially try out for The X Factor?

A. Paige: I watched the show last year and I saw they have a lot of dancing and dancers on the stage and things like that. I was looking for something along those lines because singing and dancing is something I love to do. That spiked my interest and just wanting to have something better for myself and my daughter.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: What made you choose "I'm Going Down" for your audition song?

A. Paige: There were a couple of sings I had in mind and I wanted to change them up, but I couldn't change them up the way I wanted to. That song was a song that I love to sing. It kind of felt like how I felt at the time. I was kind of going down and I wanted something to help me go up. I took the song and perceived it, not necessarily how the song is meant to be perceived, but it meant something to me but not how people would normally perceive it. So, I took that song and tried to change it.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: What was it like seeing your audition on TV?

A. Paige: It was awesome to see my audition on TV because when you're there and actually caught up in the moment, for me I didn't know what was going on. It was kind of nice to see what had happened because I didn't know. It was all just a blur. It was so surreal to have that opportunity. It was reliving the moment when I watched it, but it was almost like it was happening for the first time again. It was definitely amazing, but it was kind of weird to watch myself too (laughs).

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: During all of Boot Camp, it looks like there is an intense battle between you and CeCe. Was it as intense as it seems on TV?

A. Paige: No, it was actually that intense. I think the show did a great job at capturing the true emotions of what was going on. It's a competition for $5 million, so it gets cutthroat. CeCe and I have learned to grow and respect each other as artists, but at that moment it was definitely like that.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: You struggled with the OneRepublic song and missed some lyrics. What brought on that slipup during the battle with CeCe, maybe nerves or not knowing the song going into the performance?

A. Paige: It's a mixture of everything. I didn't know the song and its nerve wracking to know if you mess up the lyrics there is a possibility of you going home. You have all these thoughts going through your mind. It's almost harder as you get further, because there is more at stake. It's a lot for me, because it's not a $5 million contract for me. It's a $5 million contract for my daughter, for my family, for myself and everyone that said I couldn't do it. It was scary. Not only nerves, but I was exhausted when I had gotten to that point. It is hard work and you are up all the time and you're working hard and it tends to take a toll once you get so far.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: If you were to make it past Boot Camp, what mentor would you like to work with and why them?

A. Paige: I think I would be happy with any mentor, if I can get that far. Each judge has a little bit of everything that I want to be taught. Britney Spears has the performance aspect and I absolutely love her. I have been to her concerts and she can teach me that stuff. Demi Lovato has had some hard times and she's overcome them and she's a good role model and she definitely connects with her audience when she performs. I think she could teach me how to do that. L.A. and Simon are some of the biggest known producers out there. It's kind of hard to say which one I want in particular.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: What has this whole experience meant to you so far?

A. Paige: It's meant the world. It's so weird to think that I'm actually here. I've tried many things with the nursing school, being a mother and trying to sing and it hasn't worked out. It's something I can't put into words just the fact that I've gotten to Boot Camp. Not in a million years did I ever think I was going to get there. Just keep working hard with what I do and see where I can go with it.

Q. Todd, RealityWanted: Anything to say to your fans out there reading this?

A. Paige: I absolutely love you guys so much. You guys mean the world to me. I'll keep working hard and I hope I'm a positive role model for you and thank you so much for the support. Keep pushing for your dreams.

Tips to be Followed during Property Auction

When you find a property at auction, you will immediately think about the loss that the owner of the property must have gone through for the property to come for public auction. Auctions have become very common these days due to the financial crunch that came forth in the recent past leaving a lot of home owners to take this bitter decision. We can see auctions as one of the methods that are in practice for selling and buying properties.

Mostly auctions are considered as loss for the property owner and a big gain for the ones who take the property in auction for the best bid. But the actual truth is that there are equal possibilities for the seller and the buyer to enjoy profit if they follow a few points while managing a property auction. But the saddest point is that in many cases neither the buyer nor the seller gets profit but the agent who makes the best use of the situation gets the best revenue. It is a real blunder if you let the third party to earn money without any actual work done over the whole process. You will have to be well informed about a few points and tips to follow even before you plan to place your bid at a Property auction .

Before the Auction you will have to keep yourself informed about the actual rate of a similar property at the same location. Do a proper property valuation check before you buy or sell your property. Don't let people to under estimate the property value if you are the seller or the brokers to over value the property in case you are the buyer.

If you are going to buy a property, study about the property and find if it's useful for your and if it is your kind before going for a property auction to place your bid. When you want to buy a property you will have to find out about the repair works that needs to be done for the property after buying it. Do a rough calculation of the estimated amount that you will have to spend on the property after you buy it in the auction. See if the total amount falls within your budget, this will avoid any financial scarcity. If you are planning to earn some money out of the rent that you might get from the building, do check with people about the area value and the possible amount of rent that you can expect from the property after you repair it. 

Check if there is any major local development that might affect the property that you are going to place the bid for. During the auction, always try to make note of the other auctioneers moves so that you can place your bid effectively and never turn emotional. Keep yourself calm and plan thing well before you place your bid.

10 things I’ve learned about fashion blogging

It’s been nearly two years since I began my adventures with British Style Bloggers, and I have enjoyed every minute of it.  I’m going through a lot of exciting changes in my life right now, and with this in mind have been taking stock of all the cool things I am lucky enough to be involved in.  I could never have imagined that my love of putting an opinion out there could have led to a voluntary ‘career’ in fashion, and yet here I sit.  So, I thought I would mark the occasion by imparting some of the ‘wisdom’ I have acquired.  In no particular order, and with my tongue firmly in my cheek, here they are:

  • You can read as many fashion blogs and magazines as you like, but you’ll still be paralysed with clothes insecurity when Fashion Week comes around.
  • You dress each day like you’re ready to be shot for a street-style piece.  Even if if you’ve got nothing planned.  And if you let this slip, even for just one day, you’ll be paranoid that you’ll be exposed as a fraud.
  • In fact, you’re pretty much constantly convinced that you’re going to be exposed as some kind of sartorial fraud
  • People in ‘real life’ are always going to confusedly question why you choose to work as hard as you do at something for free…
  • …  But then be super-jealous when you mention your press pass for that awesome event.You’ll make it work, even if at times you haven’t got the time, the patience or the money.
  • Your first Fashion Week will be the most disorientating, tiring, confusing experience of your life, and subsequent ones don’t appear to get that much easier as you try and fit more and more in.
  • Working, virtual relationships become heartfelt, genuine friendships.
  • And finally, cheesy as it sounds, it’ll all be worth it.  Hard work and determination never go out of style.

The Coachella Valley Music and Arts-Festival

Last june, the news detonated across America’s skinny-jeans-wearing populace with the shock of a 4,000-pound bomb. Hipsterdom’s indie music extravaganza, the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, announced plans to expand from one three-day weekend featuring the crème de la crème of alt-rock, hip-hop, and electronica to two back-to-back events essentially staging the same rollicking megaconcert twice—for the first time in its 13-year history.

Instead, he devised this new scheme to double attendance while keeping overflow crowds and traffic nightmares to a minimum. But viewed another way, the spectacle unfolding in the low California desert on April 13 to 15 and again on April 20 to 22, represents one of the great social experiments in live-concert business history. While annual music festivals like Australia’s Big Day Out or England’s V Festival feature multiple stages and eclectic lineups that play different cities, until now no festival has booked talent with the mandate they repeat what amounts to a command performance.

Menounos and Hough immediately “clicked,” according to a veteran “DWTS” staffer, who added, “I’ve never seen a celebrity and professional dancer hit it off as well as these two have and from the moment they met!”

One Direction recently appeared on the US
The great five-piece act were formed in 2010 by the X Factor judges after they failed to impress as solo artists. Band member Harry Styles said reaching number one was a "dream come true" for the group. "We simply cannot believe that we are number one in America. We want to thank each and every one of our fans in the US who bought our album and we would also like to thank the American public for being so supportive of us."

Fellow band member Niall Horan added as you can imagine, we are over the moon. "When we got put together as a group, we couldn't imagine ourselves coming to America, let alone releasing our album here, so for us to be sitting at the top of the US album charts is unbelievable."

X Factor judge and music executive Simon Cowell signed the band to his record label
UK boy band in the US chartsSyco Music last year. "I couldn't be happier for One Direction, it is an incredible achievement. They deserve it. They have the best lovely fans in the world," Cowell said. The feat comes in the same week it was announced the band have secured their own US TV show.

The success One Direction's number one follows their successful debut in the singles chart with What Makes You Beautiful last month, which went to number 28 in the Hot 100.The group, who have just finished their US tour and are now back in the UK, will perform live on the Jay Leno show later this month.They have already sung live on the Ellen show and Chelsea Lately.
