Canada's fanciest fanny!

MNC Finals

SOOOO…you all have been eagerly awaiting my perception of the Miss Nude Canada contest and how I did. WELL…I didn’t place. But before some of you start a riot (some of my hard core loyal rowdies lol) let me just say that this was one of the most high caliber contests to date; this could easily be compared to a Miss Nude World competition. The competition was fierce, every girl brought her A game and there was no room for error, which unfortunately for me, was my downfall.

But honestly, for the first time, this was a contest where there was no contender going in, it was anybodies game. All of the girls were SO good and all had special skills from aerial acts to acrobatics to choreographed routines. And props galore..even a harpest on stage!! It made me proud to be Canadian and in a line up of such fantastic talent! It was like being in Vegas!

My theme was from Hell to Heaven. I had special effects, smoke and lighting. I was a devil that conquered heaven and captured two angels. I came on stage to the Undertaker theme song then went into Dragula by Rob Zombie, Fire by Scooter, Heaven’s On Fire by Kiss at which point my angels turn into sexy little devils grooving to the music, Firewoman by the Cult, then the transition begins….Unforgiven plays by Metallica and I perform my aerial hoop routine and I begin to ‘see the light’ and a white light shines through a white shimmering sheet, I slowly dance over to it, Knocking On Heaven’s Door by Guns N Roses begins to play, I go behind the white backdrop creating a silhouette, I am now asking forgiveness and becoming an angel.

I come out from behind the white sheet, there’s a cloud effect on stage, I’m now an angel and I sing live on top of some white stairs to, ‘Heaven’ by Bryan Adams. Start off wild at heart and finish with finding true love. That was the deeper meaning of my show 🙂

There are so many stories within my story…where do I begin! I’ll start with my demise. My show for the semi finals was going amazing! The audience was off the hook and I was nailing every element to my show and then it came time to sing…and my sound was DREADFUL! It was terrible. The levels were off, the base was so high you couldn’t even make out the melody of the music, I couldn’t hear myself sing at all-it was like I was in a dark room looking for a light switch trying to find the notes, and the feedback everywhere was brutal.

NOW, when I decided to sing I had my ducks in order. I hired the best sound tech in Calgary cuz I knew that this would be a new element to bring to an exotic dance contest. I knew that the club’s djs wouldn’t be experienced in sound for a live musician. But the owner was extremely peticular about who was touching his sound equipment and after many emails, management guaranteed me that their sound tech could do it easily and was experienced.

On the semi finals night the sound guy ‘couldn’t get my mic’s frequency on the right channel’ gave me the MCs speaking mic and was forced to go on stage to do my show. I wish I would’ve been more of a diva but can’t turn back time now. After my show I wanted to stick my head in the stand like an ostrich LOL Seriously..I can sing, I’ve sang for Jay Leno and performed in Vegas and Toronto, as well as many live shows…blah blah blah. I wasn’t sure about making it to the finals on Saturday BUT I did! WhooHoo! Now it was time to get things sorted for Saturday.

First thing in the morning I went down to the venue and spoke with management. I also emailed upper management and called my agents. I wanted to bring in my sound tech but they reassured me they’d get it right this time and send in their tech early to fix the problem. And he did. It was a bittersweet moment to see him pull out a sound board that they had all along and plugged my mic into it with no problem. I couldn’t believe it. It was disheartening BUT the show must go on and if anything, time to redeem myself.

AND…my sound was amazing! Vocals were clear and everything sounded beautiful and on perfect pitch. I was SO proud of my show on the eve of the finals. I had customers throwing up $100s, $50s and full rolls of looneys as I serenaded the audience! The doorman came up to me after my show and said, “All this money is for you! The owners said we could keep any looneys or $5s thrown on the stage but I can’t keep all this, you deserve it, that was truely fanastic!”I then was booked with dances for the rest of the night 😀 I felt amazing, I did the best I could, with what I had from where I was, and that is that. I even had another competitior tell me, “WOW, you are a real singer…not even like karoake but a real singer!” Ummm thanks?

You see, they add the scores from Friday and Saturday together so it really didn’t matter how good I did on Saturday if I scored low on Friday. But that’s OK! From what I hear the girl who one, Onyx, was absolutely incredible and had the judges on their feet-you can’t argue with that! This one just wasn’t in the cards for me…at all. I had a lot of issues going into this comp, like not being able to do pyro or fire (took the pyro course specifically for this contest just to be told I coudn’t use it the week before the contest) my lil angels kept flaking out, leaving me to scramble at the last minute to find girls to help me with my show, my special effects didn’t work for the first show and then the singing.

Even still, the singing may have been a little too off the wall for an exotic dance contest, too. What I do know is that this was an amazing experience, it was a well run contest-HUGE KUDOS to Ken and Independent for running such an excellent, fair, no drama contest and I did get a lot out of it in many other ways. Does it suck to walk off stage empty handed, yes but I gained so much on the heart level that it more than makes up for that…well almost lol 🙂 Deepened some friendships and created some new ones, I got to sing my heart like a rockstarr, I got to watch my vision unfold before my eyes, my lil sis came on stage with me and show her support in the biggest way (THAT’S another story) and ALL the people who came together to help me out and be a part of this. YAAAY! Lots to be thankful for xxoo

So my stories within this story are to come over the next couple days 🙂 And a video of my show!!!!
