Re: Singers, style and voice

So my wife turned on American Idol last night. I was a captured viewer because I was sitting down to eat dinner and she had it on.

Nothing's changed with regards to my 'hating' the show. Except, the little bit I watched was even worse than what I've seen before. First I watch two young girls compete against each other because the judges can only pick one. WTF... I dunno. Anyway, they have a solo sing-off right there. Not only did they sound exactly the same, there was nothing distinctive about them vocal wise. Boring.

Then a young man performs and he did have a distinctive style. IMO, something akin to Chris Issak. He was far more interesting than the cookie cutter singers.

The kicker was the way it was put together. The judges were talking during the performance. The visuals were overlapping images of the singer and judges in a very 'syrupy' pulling at the heart strings presentation. I thought it was ridiculous.

Now mind you, I only watched about 15 minutes, but that was the longest 15 hours of my life.

The sad thing is, I'm sure there is some talent out that should be heard, but to wade through all that mediocre crap has zero pull on me.

Just let me know when someone does well and makes a record... OK.
