    Have you ever competed in any kind of music competitions?

    I have a friend who is the singer of a locally well known band. Recently he decided to participate in a competition where the winner will get the opportunity to join a popular band in this country on a national tour for two weeks. So far he hasn't heard back from the competition organisers, but we keep our fingers crossed.
    Have you ever done anything like this?

    I haven't done it but do have friends who have competed. I can't sing at all and don't play any musical instruments anymore but I do enjoy go with them and being supportive.

    I was never in any sort of music competition because my voice really sucks but I've done some informal rapping with friends, it's fun.

    I've never competed but a couple of my friends have participated in rap battles, I usually go along for support and it's always tons of fun!
    As far as actual competitions, like American Idol or something, also no of course

    Yes, i have. When i was younger, i had a rock band, and the town used to hold a local band competition on the University campus. More than 20 bands would participate. It was great. Sadly, my band never won because we played goth rock and people weren't very fond of that type of music at that time. But still, we had a great time. Wish those days came back.

    Yeah, I did it once with my old band. It was this big local thing in the local church and there were all kinds of bands, the hardcore punk kids, lots of metalcore, some weird experimental guys and a Guns n' Roses look-alike band.

    No, I can't even sing or play any instrument, so I haven't competed in any kind of music competition. If ever I can though, I think I would be too shy to do it.

    I am very shy as well. I used to play the clarinet in high school but I'm a little rusty now & wouldn't be able to compete if my life depended on it.

    Back a time ago when I had a heavy-metal band we used to take part in different festivals and competitions here in Poland, but since my band split up we don't anymore. It sucks. ;/

    In high school, I was in the marching band. North Augusta Jacket Regiment. We had music tournaments and competitions every weekend.

    I was part of a band once and we did a few local amateur shows but we never got serious enough to try and join competitions. I'd certainly want to give it a try now though. I think it would be very fun.

    When I was 12 I won a local battle of the bands/open mic type event against other bands/singers/rappers in between the ages of 12-25.
    I got a 12 month subscription to Rolling Stone & 6 hours recording time from it.
    Great experience.

    Yes, I have competed in a music competition along with my band. It was about two years ago and there were 12 or 13 contestants. It was an inter school competition and was kind of tough, so we had practiced really hard. Unfortunately, we ended up in third position and didn't win any prizes. I guess there was some kind of technical problem. It was really embarrassing and we decided never to take part in any sort of music competitions. It was a bad experience.
    We still play in pubs sometimes.

    I participated in a music competition and I won third place for a classical piano concerto. At the competition, I felt so intimidated because I had to compete against some young and famous local musicians. But, the famous kids were so nice and supportive towards everyone.
    Also, I auditioned for a jazz singer position at a hotel. They said I looked too young, even though I was 20 years old, I still looked 14 years old.
