What are some good uptempo numbers for auditions?

I am in my 20s and I am a soprano. I need to find a good uptempo number to sing for an audition. The only ones I can think of are so over done and I want to do something that isn't generic. Any ideas or suggestions?


  1. Your best choice for an audition is a number which you love and have perfected. You want the judges to know the piece and that you can sell it to the audience. To be honest they are not looking for a unique singer. That can come later.
  2. It also depends on whether you are auditioning for classical or pop type things. "Put on a Happy Face" is from a play. "Bye-Bye Birdie", while Per La Gloria ..." is a more classical piece.
