KARA Nicole’s cousin auditions for Superstar K2

KARA Nicole’s cousin auditioned for the second season of Superstar K in Los Angeles, where Nicole is originally from.

His name is Anthony Lee, and he is 17-years-old. On the episode of the reality show that aired on the 6th, Anthony sang for judges Tiger JK, Yoon Mi Rae, Park Jung Hyun and Seo In Young.

He said that he had dreams of being a singer ever since he saw god, an old idol group. The judges all thought he was a cutie but he did not pass through for the round in Korea.

On another note, John Park, the American Idol Top 24 finalist, did make it through to the next round of auditions by singing his own rendition of Wonder Girls’ 2 Different Tears.

I’m sure Nicole is proud of her cousin for auditioning.


Park Myung Soo to perform Whale with IU

Park Myung Soo released his single Whale with KARA’s Nicole but announced that they wouldn’t promote the song.

Luckily for fans who are loving this track though, Park Myung Soo will still perform this song live, but with IU filling in for Nicole at the 2010 MBC FM4U Summer Music Festival.

He is hosting the event, so he decided to prepare a special stage for the audience. IU can pull off any song, so I’m excited to see this one.
