Please have a cover song prepared as well if you choose to sing an original. Most singing auditions are a capella but it's a good idea to bring a backing track should the producer request to hear you singing with a track.

For example, a male auditioning by singing a song typically done by a female singer. It is always a good idea to have more than one song prepared, especially a few different genres or styles. Each audition is only 90 seconds, but the Producer can stop you at anytime. But if a Producer asks to hear another song, it is good to be prepared.
