America's biggest karaoke puppet show kicked off last night - did anyone watch this?
It's really getting kind of silly, if it wasn't already at that level before. Who keeps telling all of these delusional teens that they can sing? I understand the need to be supportive, but it gets ridiculous.
Some of those trying out are clearly in it just for the fame, as well. You can't tell me otherwise about the guy in the Princess Leia costume last night.
Meanwhile, there are some people who can sing and it'll be interesting to see how the contest goes this year, since they are allowing people to use an instrument while performing.
Personally, it all seems pointless until they look for people who perform original material.
