She stood on stage, heart pounding. This was it, this her moment.
Curtains pulled back. She stood before the audience... feeling a million things, grabbing the mic and blasting out her song.
People got up, applauding her as her song echoed throughout the stadium.
She looked at the judges, they watched with distant eyes.
This was her moment. She fell to her knees, begging them through her words to hear her soul.
Finally music stopped. Their scores lifted up.
10 - 10 – 10.
She screamed in happiness. But it dawned on her...
Those scores of 10 were out of 100.
