Twilight's Got Talent
Well, you've all seen shows like Britain's Got Talent, American Idol, you name it, we've got it. So I figured, why not write on which is centered in the Twilight world? Bella is a singer / songwriter, and decides to enter herself in the show America's Got Talent. Alice, Edward and Emmett star as judges. Another contestant is Rosalie. And the rest is history....
Rated for everyone, off course. Another one of my more light hearted stories. With a bit of angst and drama thrown into the mix off course - I simply cannot write a story without those two elements somewhere in it, lol. I hope you like it. Also, have your youtube handy, cause the story has a lot of songs in it that you can listen to while you read.

Chapter 1: Auditions and Surprises
God, I was SO bored! Another day of watching thousands of people perform meaningless acts. Some acts were good, some great even, but most were just crap. I couldn't understand how some people came up this stage and said they were as good as Sarah Mclachlan or Celine Dion or whatever artist they named, while they simply sucked. I couldn't understand how some people were so convinced they had a talent while their so called 'act' sucked beyond the telling of it.
Today had been plain torture so far, everyone blowed - most were tremendous to watch. So far, only 10 acts had gone through during the first 5 hours of judging. If I didn't have my best friend, Emmett, and sister, Alice, with me on the judging panel, I swear I thought I'd go crazy. They were the only ones keeping me sane through all this. Though it was their fault I had even signed up to do this in the first place - I just couldn't refuse them and it was biting me in the ass now.
We had just send away one of the worst acts I had ever seen - a 58 year old woman who thought she could break dance, sing and paint at the same time. Seriously, how crazy could people get? I was already dreading the next act while Alice and Emmett were still as energetic and happy as when we started - I had no idea how they did it.
A tall, pretty blond walked on the stage - she was wearing high heeled shoes, short red shorts and a white tank top - Emmett whistled and Alice bounced up and down in her seat - she was probably one of those girls who got whomever and whatever she wanted just with her looks; she wasn't my type though, no one was - I didn't date. I wasn't gay or anything, I was just waiting for the right woman to come along and for now I was happy on my own - I was only 26 years old, after all, I had time.
"Hi, I'm Alice, this is Edward and Emmett, and you are?" Alice introduced us; I chuckled, everyone knew who we were, no introductions were required, but Alice, and Emmett for that matter seemed to enjoy doing it, so I let them. Alice was a famous dance choreographer and had her own clothing line - she, and I of course, came from a lot of money. Emmett started his career as a famous rugby player and later moved on to producing records; he had brought forth many great artists - he had a great sense for new talent. I was a singer/song writer. So far, I had 3 golden records - I had made over 50 million in the last year alone and apparently, I had the looks that made me wanted by all the girls and even some guys.
"My name is Rosalie Hale," the blond, now known as Rosalie, replied - she had a pleasant voice, she seemed friendly, I thought.
"Hi Rose, is it okay if I call you Rose?" Emmett asked as he drooled over this girl; I rolled my eyes, we were supposed to act as judges, but it seemed only I took the job seriously. Rosalie nodded and flashed Emmett a wide smile, which he returned, gladly.
"What is your act, Rosalie?" I asked, wanting to get this over with. She may be pretty, but I doubted she had any real talent, few had real talent on this show.
"I'm a dancer," she replied; I nodded and told her to proceed. After several seconds, the song Right Round by Flo Rida started playing. Rosalie started to move and I had to admit I was impressed. Her moves were really good and advanced, though I had no idea how she was able to dance the way she did in high heels; that had to have required lots of practice. She even did a few flips and spinned round on her head. It had taken the crowd just several seconds before they were on their feet and cheering like they hadn't cheered all day; even Alice and Emmett were on their feet from almost the start. By the end of it, I too had gotten on my feet and was clapping my hands with much excitement - this girl was amazing.
When the audience - and Alice and especially Emmett - had calmed down and we were in our seats again, we judged her. Alice was the first to speak, since she was the expert in the dance area.
"Wow, Rose, that was fantastic! I'm very impressed with your moves and especially your ability to do that all on those high heeled shoes, which are amazing btw. How long did it take you to learn to dance on those heels?" She asked, Rosalie smiled at the comment she was given and answered, "It took me about 2 years to learn how to dance on heels; it's easy once you get the hang of it." Alice nodded and continued, "Who taught you the routine?" She asked, Rosalie smiled and said she always put her own routines together; I had to say I was a little shocked. "Astonishing. Well, Rosalie, I can honestly say that you will go a long way in this competition. I wouldn't be surprised if you won; you're officially my favourite act," Alice finished, Rosalie thanked her and listened to Emmett's comments.
"Can I first say, Rose, that you're smoking hot!" Emmett said, my eyes almost popped out of my head, Emmett had never acted so unprofessional - I was even more stunned when Rosalie said the same to Emmett. What the hell was going on here?! I thought this was supposed to be a talent show, not a dating service!
"I can't ad much more to Alice's comments; I completely agree with her. You're by far the best contestant in this competition, and my favourite as well." He said, I couldn't argue with that, it was the truth.
"Rosalie, when you first came on, I didn't expect much and neither did the crowd, I think. You turned this whole room upside down and stunned us all with your performance. That said, I think we shouldn't even bother voting and just put you through to the next round," I said, by which Alice and Emmett agreed.
"Thank you so very much," Rosalie said before she walked of stage, being given yet another standing ovation by the public and us judges - she truly was the best contestant so far. For once, I was glad to be judging this show - she made me remember why I was doing this; to find talent and help bring it out.
After that, the auditions seemed to be on a roll, one great act after another came on stage, with occasionally a bad act in between, but my mood had been good ever since the Hale girl. Finally, we were at the final audition of the day.
A short girl about 5'4" and brown hair walked on the stage carrying a guitar in her hands - a singer. She was wearing plain jeans and a blue T-shirt, which complimented her. I noticed she was very pale and shaking a bit, was she sick? No, probably just nervous. I also noticed Alice' nose crinkling in distaste at the girl's fashion sense; though I thought she looked great. Then, she looked me straight in the eye and I was overthrown by the beauty and depth of her big brown, chocolate eyes. It was as if I could look straight in her soul; she seemed sad to me, somehow and I didn't like that. I had no idea why I didn't like that or why I felt the sudden need to take her in my arms and protect her from the world; it had me very confused.
Emmett introduced us this time, though I hardly heard a word he said - I was mesmerized by this girl who's name I didn't even know.
"What is your name and where are you from?" Alice asked then, she had gotten over her disapproval of the girl's clothes and was back to her normal, energetic self. Then the girl spoke, "My name is Isabella Swan, but I prefer Bella and I'm from a small town called Forks in Washington." Her voice was the most beautiful I had ever heard in my life, even when it was shaking as it was now. And her name, it was perfect, I loved it. My heart went in overdrive, I couldn't control my emotions at all and I had no idea how or why she was getting such a ridiculous reaction from me.
"Just start whenever you're ready, Bella," Emmett said by which Bella nodded and prepared herself to sing. She closed her eyes and started playing the song on her guitar - she never opened her eyes once as she played - and I immediately recognized the song as Fallen by Sarah Mclachlan - a great song.
When she opened her eyes and suddenly began to sing, the crowd was on their feet in an instant - they were cheering even harder than they were for the Hale girl. She sang the lyrics with such passion and beauty; I had never heard a voice like hers, she was amazing.
'Heaven Bend to take my hand
And lead me through the fire
Let it be the long awaited answer
To a long and painful fight
Truth be told I tried my best
But somewhere along the way
I got caught up in all there was to offer
And the cost was so much more than I could pay
Though I've tried I've fallen
I have sunk so low
I messed up
Better I should've known
So don't come round here and
Tell me I told you so
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here and
Tell me I told you so
I messed up
Better I should know
So don't come round here and
Tell me I told you so'
I noticed Emmett and Alice were on their feet too by the time she finished, but I was frozen in place as I watched Bella as she blushed the most beautiful red blush I had ever seen. The cheering subsided a little and Emmett began judging her.
"Bella, I can honestly say I did not expect a voice like that to come from a tiny girl such as you - amazing." He said, it was shorter than his usual comments, but I didn't pay attention to it - I just continued to watch Bella as she thanked him and blushed even more; I had no idea a person could blush as much as she did.
"Bella, I have to admit, I was a bit disappointed by your fashion sense when you came on stage, but you completely won me over with your performance. I was almost crying, which doesn't happen often, I'll tell you. You have an amazing talent and an enormous chance at winning," Alice said, by which I smiled, I would like this girl to win. Why? I had no idea, I was an emotional wreck when it came to Bella and I didn't even know her.
When Alice nudged me in the side, I realized I still hadn't commented on her performance, but I couldn't seem to find my voice; it was lost somewhere in my mind. "Edward? Edward!" Alice yelled, still, I did not speak, I was unable to, so Alice spoke in my place.
"Eh, Bella, it seems you've stunned my big brother into silence, which is a first, I must say. I can safely say he liked your performance, a lot by the looks of it." Alice said and looked at me - I kept my eyes on Bella. She was staring at me now, and I saw her eyes widen a little and her blush increasing - I probably startled her by the way I was looking at her, but I couldn't look away.
"Let's vote...," Emmett said, his voice a little unsure; he had never seen me like this, neither had Alice - I had never been like this.
"It's a big yes from me," Emmett said, I smiled, I was glad she was going to go through - though I still had no idea why I had to be glad. Bella was still staring at me and it seemed as if she too didn't quite hear what Emmett or Alice were saying.
"It's a 100% yes from me," Alice chimed in her high pitched, sweet sounding voice. I simply nodded, knowing they were looking at me - again, Alice answered in my place. "Hey, we got a nod out of him, so it's 3 yeses, you're going through to the next round Bella," Alice almost sang, she was always so exited when she send someone through.
Finally, much to my dismay, Bella tore her eyes from me, thanked us and walked back off stage. Alice asked me something, but I was still thinking of the girl and blocked all the rest out. It was as if she had put me in some sort of weird trance - it was uncanny and felt so good at the same time. I would figure out why she had such a pull toward me, I needed to know.
