☛ “CONGRATULATIONS! Based on the video you have submitted, YOU HAVE BEEN SELECTED TO THE NEXT LEVEL OF AUDITIONS! YOU MUST HAVE THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION COMPLETED AND RETURNED TO US VIA EMAIL WITHIN THE NEXT 24 HOURS!” ☚
✉ These were the exact words in the email we just received from the casting staff and casting producer at NBC’s AMERICA’S GOT TALENT SEASON 5! You can’t begin to imagine how exciting this is for us?!? OMG, the excitement and emotions are running wild in the Andersohn home right now, and can hardly be expressed or even put into words.
♬ This is a HUGE honor, privilege, and opportunity for our family and band. We’re nothing short of elated, flabbergasted, and floating on clouds right now. Here’s the audition video we created while recording this song in the studio, and then submitted it for this seasons show.
✍ When we received word that we had passed the first round of auditions and are now going on to the next round, life and time seemed to just stop right there! The only comparison that comes to mind is like finding out you just won the Lottery! We know that tens of thousands are turned away from AGT all over the country every year, and to be selected as a “next round” contestant makes us very humbled, and yet very proud. Shoot, we are down-right STOKED!
☎ The first thing we did when we found out was call the kids schools and ask that the principles announce it in each of their classrooms. Brandon’s teacher announced it right in front of the whole class, while Dustin’s teacher walked into class and slipped him “the note.” I can only imagine that concentrating on their classes the rest of the day after getting news like that must have been close to impossible.
☃ So now we go on to the next level of auditions and if we make it past that, we go on the show and compete for the $1,000,000 dollars and a chance to be the Winners of America’s Got Talent Season 5. This is a dream come true. This is already a big win for us. Just getting past the first round of auditions and making it to the next round could be one of our greatest accomplishments ever. This is the beginning of some very exciting times ahead for us.
♥ We love America, and hope they’ll love us back enough to vote for us, and help us win AGT5 as “America’s ONLY Family Rock Band!” We’ve got some serious hard work and lot’s of practice and rehearsals ahead, so we’ll be signing off for a while. Don’t worry, we’ll be back very soon with an update and the latest news on what’s happening with this new journey and adventure of ours. Thanks AGT and thanks America!! ★
