So I'm going through the american idol clips and stuff. I HAVE MY REASONS. Don't look at me like that. I don't watch the show, I don't know any of the people, but something piqued my interest and I went to check out the clips I could find. And like.. one chick has an honestly good voice - good enough that she feels like a plant. She couldn't possibly actually be just some random person who wanted to audition. She has GOT to be some sort of long standing studio musician that they paid to be on the show.

And the others... I'm reading all these comments on their YouTube clips and I've decided that America has been subjected to some sort of chemical warfare/ pollution/ low altitude bomb/crop spraying incident that rendered all of them tone deaf. I'm AMAZED at the "he/she is such a good singer" comments that some of these people are receiving in overwhelming numbers. No Wonder I can't listen to just about anything anyone recommends I will like ... EVER. Popular music has been dialed down to such a degree that anyone who can squawk out a few lines without sounding like an abused bagpipe is "talented".

OH... and why the hell does anyone ever think "I'll sing "Queen of the Night"... it's a good song"? It was a ridiculous mess when Whitney did it in the first place and you do not sound nor look "Fierce" when doing a poor impersonation of it. also Celine Dion, also Mariah Carey, also Babyface. In their originals - they're just shitty. When done on American Idol they're EMBARRASSING.

well, i figure the commenting is much more likely to be the work of sockpuppets and paid puffers. although there are also alot of people with some fucking terrible taste in music.
