Despite my reservations (and desire to do anything but idol for an evening), I let Kerrie talk me into watching the all-group WACK audition marathon that began last night, and I let Garry talk me into joining the chat, and I have no agency of my own apparently because I’m blaming others for my choices.
That being acknowledged, thanks guys. You only get so many chances in life to hear Aina the End “audition” with GANG PARADE/Pla2me’s “Plastic 2 Mercy”:

Though, in the interests of complete disclosure, that wasn’t the only cross-group “auditioning” of the night; Yua from GANG PARADE did “Hoshi ga,” and so did Pour Lui (correction: Pour Lui a capella crushed “Hoshi ga”), and Aina did “BiSBiS” and Atsuko was in there, too, but I completely forget which song she had and does it really matter? Other active members took their turns at the mic, is what I’m saying.
This particular instance did not escape the notice of the tens of thousands of people on the feed, either, as our pal Hasdrubal Jones noted the same thing on that BiSH post from the other day. If you happen to know of other video captures, please share them!
The auditions are literally still happening; it’s six days (in Japan) and five nights (still in Japan!), which is twice the length of the BiS boot camp that made me want to cry rivers of blood to get the gods to put the thing to an end. So do click on over to watch, pay the 540 yen for the premium membership and prepare for alternating bouts of surprising musical moments and crushing inanity!
Terry has up a little rundown of the goings on from the first several hours of Day 1, and I imagine is currently asleep in a ditch somewhere because that was easily an all-nighter.
