Junior Nationals - Nationals Question

I plan on competing in April - Men's Physique. Now I know I look small now, but I plan to come in competitive. Top five you can go to any national event...except Junior USA and USA. What is the difference? Also, is there even any point in competing nationally if you don't go to these two?

Question about CD and Music for NPC Physique Show?

Been watching some NPC Teen's Physique show on youtube and I plan on competing this july. I wasn't really able to tell if people were using their tracks for their poses, so I guess what I'm really asking is if most people actually bring their own CD for Physique show? Thanks will rep.
