Xiumin’s 2008 JYP audition tapes have been leaked and it has everyone wondering why he’s not one of the main vocalists for EXO.
In the first video, he’s singing a cover of Kim Bum Soo’s “I Miss You”.
He shows off his very powerful vocals as well as his control over his vibrato.
It’s not surprising that he ranked 2nd place in SM Entertainment’s EverySing Competition.
He looks so young in his audition tapes, and his skin is darker too.
It’s a shame that SM Entertainment made him a rapper instead of a vocalist for EXO.
We hope that SM Entertainment gives him more singing opportunities in the future.
Without further ado, check out Xiumin’s audition tapes for JYP Entertainment in the videos below.
While he didn’t make it into JYP Entertainment, he still found his rightful home in SM Entertainment with EXO, and we’re glad it turned out that way.
