Jonathan Farrington came into his audition in Season 4 with a brilliant swagger and followed it up with an amazing vocal performance.  Jonathan was the first contestant to come to The Shot from outside Canada, having come to audition from the Bahamas.  Here’s what Jonathan had to say about his experience with The Shot and what he’s doing now:

 

What was your favourite part of The Shot?  What did you take from doing it?  How did The Shot help you grow as an artist?

My favorite part about The Shot was meeting so many amazing artists. It was a great way to get an appreciation of different genres and styles. The Shot helped me to be a more versatile artist experimenting with songs that I would not normally have performed back at home in the Bahamas.

 

How was The Shot different from any of your other experiences with performing or doing other competitions?

The Shot was different because I saw a genuine concern from the coaches and their entire team to help artists achieve their musical dreams without trying to swindle them.  It was a very real and pure experience.

 

What advice would you give someone who is thinking about auditioning for Season 6?

I would say do it.  You really have nothing to lose but everything to gain when you enter a competition like this.

 

What have you been doing since The Shot?

I’m now studying acting at the prestigious American Academy of Dramatic Arts in Manhattan, New York.  Acting is another passion of mine and just like music it has the power to touch people on so many levels. I decided to invest in enhancing this skill. I’m still performing when I get free time from school and currently writing new material for futuristic projects.   I’m also writing a screen play and stage play.  I’m also enrolled in the New York Vocal coaching academy where I am studying to obtain my certification in vocal coaching.

Season 2 winner James Downham has been one of The Shot's most vocal and active ambassadors since taking home the trophy back in March 2015.  Since his winning performance of Tim McGaw's "Live Like You Were Dyin'", James has started a band, been writing and recording new music and has called The Shot the breath of air that brought new life into his passion for music.  Here's what James had to say about his experience on The Shot and where he's been and

Earlier in the week, big changes to The Shot format for Season 6 were announced by producers in what might be the biggest shift for the hit competition since opening to singers age 16 and over from anywhere in the world. The sixth installment will focus more heavily on development and mentorship of artists and will take a more "Dragon's Den-like" approach to the singing competition format.  Auditionees can expect for their vocal performance to still play a big part in the judges' decision

THE SHOT has undergone a number of changes and developments over the years, particularly the decision to open the competition to anyone age 16 and over from anywhere in the world, but this year's latest may be the biggest yet. The Shot has continued to be Canada's fastest growing platform for aspiring talent, but amid the rise of other singing competitions — both independent and televised, the show has had to adapt its format if it's to keep up its success. Last year's installment

Singing auditions, especially in front of judges who are critiquing your performance, can be a harrowing and nerve wracking experience.  Despite the butterflies and uncertainties, The Shot tries to make auditions as much of a pleasant opportunity for contestants by promising constructive criticism and feedback no matter what the result.  For those preparing for their audition or perhaps for those still thinking about auditioning for Season 6, coach and judge C.J. Allen - the veteran judge on the panel - offers
