Red Hot Nexon America Moves Lifehouse Into Audition

Los Angeles, CA– November 30, 2007– Nexon America Inc., the U.S. division of Asia’s leading family-friendly, online entertainment provider Nexon Group, continues to add celebrated artists to its all-star lineup in Audition. Already packed with Grammy winners, platinum recording artists, teen pop sensations, and music icons, Audition, the free-to-play online dance sensation, can be downloaded for free at

Nexon America knows Audition is ready to rock with the addition of popular trio Lifehouse and the lead track, Disarray, from its album Who We Are. Lifehouse is bound to earn heavy requests from the 200,000+ dancers in the game.

“Audition gives us a new medium to get our music heard,” said Jason Wade of Lifehouse.“Now these gamers, who might not have heard us on the radio or been to one of our shows, can get a taste of some of our songs, like Disarray, and even rock out with a little dance off in the game.”

The addition of Lifehouse ushers in several new sounds in Audition, including those from Swedish rock band The Sounds, whose definitive New Wave appeal manifested in Tony the Beat and Dance with Me, a perfect fit for the game’s dancing environment.

Jennifer Lopez is also expecting players to Do it Well, the aptly named title of her prominently featured new single in Audition. And you can expect Audition to keep Poppin off with Chris Brown lending his mega-hit single with the same name. Yellowcard also makes a highly anticipated debut in Audition.

The diverse range of songs recently added to Audition include:

Armin Van Buuren– Communication

Billie Holiday– Spreadin’ Rhythm Around

Chris Brown– Poppin

Earth, Wind&Fire– Boogie Wonderland

Fantasia– When I See U

Lifehouse - Disarray

Jennifer Lopez– Do it Well

Jim Jones– We Fly High

Joss Stone– Headturner

Junkie XL– Yesterdays

Mandisa– Only the World

MIMS– Like This

The Sounds– Dance with Me

Tobymac– Gone, One World

Yellowcard– Light up the Sky

With simple directional and space bar keystrokes, Audition players perform hip-hop style dance steps and choreographed routines which require precise timing and rhythm. Players compete in various dance modes, each with its own distinctive features and objectives. Audition’s in-game reward system gives dancers,‘Beats,’ or currency used to purchase a variety of items from the cash shop.
