oh COME ON!!

i officially demand a cease and desist order on this America’s Got Talent BS.  they’ve done it again.  taken another person deemed, by social standards, unattractive, and gone wild because she can hold a tune.  remember that susan boyle business?  and that other dude, the opera singer?  okay, the opera singer could actually sing.  but these other two?  come on!  they’ve clearly found a formula that works, and they’re milking it for all its worth for ratings.

1) find a rather homely person (note:  this is not to say that i find these particular people homely, unattractive, or anything.  its just painfully evident that they expect the general populace to feel that way, and i believe that they do)

2) have them tell their story, bonus points if it includes them having sad/lonely childhoods/no boyfriends or girlfriends/etc, and make the insinuation clear that it is because they look the way they do.  oh and be sure to play sad music as they speak; itll remind the viewer to pity him/her.

3) have the judges gush and rant and rave no matter how average they may sound.  ta-daa!

i mean okay.  like i said.  the opera dude had a great voice.  but the other two? especially susan boyle?  if u were to sit blindfolded in a room and never saw them before they started singing, you’d be like ‘eh, they’re alright.  they aint no patti lupone tho.’  and u know it.

shame on this show for this.  also, shame on this show for making fucking nick cannon the host.  wtf, WHY!?

  1. hahahaha homely! i love that word.

  2. why he standin up sayin “yes!”


    she sound good tho
    stop hatin!

    i understand u tho , she does sounds average, but good nonetheless

  3. I didn’t like the dudes that sang “It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday”. The crowd was hyped before they even started. Why? Cause they had guys as young as 21 and as old as 71. I mean, what was the 71 year old guy even doing?

  4. A few things… Homely people don’t do it for me. I like midgets. I’ve never watched America’s Got Talent, but I would watch Midget’s Got Talent. Homely people freak me out and here is why: I am pretty sure they probably obsess over non-homely people. They seem like stalkers, or the serial killer neighbor who was “always so quiet”. Nuh uh, no thanks. Midgets please.

    I don’t understand America’s obsession with talent shows. Mainly reality tv talent shows. In every day normal life we don’t have community talent shows … although we should, because people in my neighborhood are straight up stupid. Here is an example of local talent in my community: http://www.youtube.com/watchv=NvjC5TzaSCY&feature=related

    Also, Nick Cannon make me mad. He isn’t funny. Kind of the same way that Dane Cook isn’t funny. Barf.

  5. Correction. I put the wrong link in there for my neighborhood talent. Here is the correct linkage: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvjC5TzaSCY
