Talent Show?

Every year my town has a talent show and every year my mam tries to get me to enter it. Last year I was going to when my band was still together but she (as in the other girl in the band) didn't want to do it. When that ended (that isn't why my first band ended by the way) I figured that I could try it with my new band, but it's been a bit of a fail. My mam thinks that I can just play guitar and sing by myself but I can't, I'm fine playing guitar in front of people it's just the singing part I can't do. It's weird whenever I'm playing Singstar or something like that with friends I take over the fucking thing but if it's infront of people and I need to be good I just can't do it. Everyone who's heard me sing said I'm good but I can't bring myself to do it alone, I'm able to play guitar and sing at the same time but thats just in my bedroom not an audience. You'd think me being the kid that took every chance she could get to preform that I'd do it but I guess I don't have the confidence anymore, the last time I was a lead in anything was for one song when I was 12 and everyone else was singing at the same time anyway. That why I said when I started trying to form this band that I'd leave someone else be the lead singer and I'd just be backup besides I don't think I'm good enough. I'd love to do the Talent Show, I really would because like I said I like preforming just not alone and I could do with the prize money (obviously we'd share it) the trophy and video sounds pretty good too but thats only if you win or come second, I'd be agaisn't everyone in the city! I was really hoping that I'd have some sort of a band together by now, not just because of the talent show it's because I've always wanted to be in a proper rock band, but unless I find a bassist, drummer and another guitar player by August and we manage to pull something together I can't do it.
