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!?
