Will a 2012 Young Talent Time really work?

  1. Hi
    Sounds great. We live in Cairns. Is it worth my 14 year old son applying living so far away. I hope so as he is a studies and does AMEB exams in vocals, TAP, Drama and violin. He has had his heart set on being a performer all his life.

    • Don’t be sad.
      Atleast you had a go and an oppertunity.
      I live in Darwin N.T.
      We
      1. Knew nothing about it
      2.Didn’t have auditions up here.

      We were left out. there are more than 2500 kids here
      who didnt get an oppertunity to try out.

      So find youself lucky that you even got a go

      *sooo not fair*

    • Hi Millie – no word on 2013 auditions. Your best bet is to watch the show as they’ll likely mention it towards the end of the season.

  12. Hi.

    I live in Palmerston. N.T, a place just out of Darwin. I would
    love to try out. My family and I were just in Cairns. We just
    came back home. If you are having auditions next year, can
    you place an ad on television so people can try out. Something
    else that would be much appreciated, can you hold auditions
    in Darwin. Darwin misses out on everything e.g…
    .Musicals/shows
    .Restraunts/shops (sizzlers, bfo,australian geographic,myer. etc)
    .Auditions

    SO PLEASE PUT AN AD ON THE CHANELL BEFORE AUDITIONS
    AND HAVE AUDITIONS IN DARWIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. When are the auditions for YTT 2013 and/or 2012.
    I wanted to audition when I saw the ad. It didn’t say
    when to audition. I live in Leanyer Darwin. Where and
    when are the auditions in Darwin. Please have some there.

    DARWIN IS IMPORTANT TOO. I agree with Mystery. We
    miss out on every thing. Including auditions.

  31. Hi,
    I’m Mollie, and I’m 12 years old. I’m desperate to audition for young talent time,
    but i don’t no how, and i dont no when. I have been singing since i was 3, and it has been my
    life time wish to speard my music around the country even the world.
    I’m don’t want to be cocky so if i am i do apoligise, but i really do think i have a chance.
    if i could sing through the computer to prove i would, but 1 i dont no how and 2 my folks wot let me.
    Also, i play recorder,a bit a keyboard and i am in the murray conserbitorium choir.
    i have sung at quite afew wedding and lots of parties. but for once i want to be seen by many.
    at school was suposed to write a poem of something i love, well i think guessed wot i chose. that’s right singing. well this is what i wrote……

    I like it when i ear a choir sing in perfect harmony
    but I don’t like it when they’re out of tune.
    I like when i’m a soloist it feelslike im singing like a bird,
    But i don’t like it wen i mess up.
    I like when i am at a concert and all i hear is applause,
    but i don’t like it when tey are booing me, with out any cause.

    so if you know anything please help me out. and god will bless you for ever
    “In the name of the “Father” “Son” and the ” Holy Spirit” Amen.

    Good night every one.
    Love mollie

  36. Do we know if there is going to be a YTT in 2013 and have the audition dates been published yet? My 12 yr old daughter would love to audition as a singing contestant or to be part of the YTT cast as she sings and dances.

    Post a Reply
    • Hi Tammy, while there’s no official word on YTT for 2013, it’s very, very unlikely the show will air again. Poor ratings coupled with Ch10’s kneejerk reaction to poor ratings mean they’re barely giving anything a run. Unless it’s “Breakfast”.

      Post a Reply
  37. Hey YTT, I have friends that say that I should go on young talent time. I dont know if I should and I can get abit nervous but when I hear the start of a song I just……. go for it. I have this dream to be a succesful singer, its kinda funny because I have never ever done singing like….. EVA!!!!! So I want to see when the next auditions are and see how it goes. But dont worry I may not try out for how someone said that it is unlikey that there will be a YTT in 2013. Well, see how it goes, good luck and thanks.
    Natalie.
    P.S: JUst to tell you that I am 11 years old. :)
