Canadian Idol Basics
Canadians aged 16-26 are welcome to audition. You'll need to fill out an application form, which you can download on the official website, and RSVP online so Canadian Idol officials can get a rough estimate of the turnout in each city. Whether you RSVP or not, the key is to be in line by 8AM in order to be guaranteed an audition. After 8AM, the line-up will be cut off and you won't be eligible to audition. Contestants must have two songs prepared to sing without music. As well, you must bring two pieces of ID (one must include a recent photo). Four judges will pick the Top 100, who will advance to the next stage in Toronto.
Spacekitty14: I understand your situation. I have family members who have varying degrees of autism. I understand that it seems unfair to you that more attention goes to your brothers, but you have to remember that they didn't ask for this. They probably don't want to deal with the problems that they are facing. As far as giving up certain types of food, those are just sacrifices that a lot of people have to make. Just try to learn more about their condition and see what you can do to help, then you won't have to feel "left out" or "ignored" by your parents. Just be patient and understand the situation. I hope that all goes well for you and your family
Both of my brothers have autism. I am 12 and a girl. I also have a 3 y/o sister. It always seems like my parents pay more attention to them then me. I don't want to tell them about it because they will think I'm being selfish. But i can't do ANYTHING fun. My little brother is allergic to half the ingredients in most candies, so I can never go trick-or-treating. And I have not had eggs since I was 3. I always have to do everything by myself. How do I deal with this?
