Against my better judgement, I’ve decided to cover The Winner Is… if only for the snark value. Because, truly the talent is cringeworthy, but it’s terrible enough to be snarkworthy.
For instance. This is going to sound awful. I’m not one to hate on little kids. ON THE CONTRARY. But who else besides me wanted to see that smug look wiped off the precocious ten year old singer who sang like a pageant bot, and then would confidently say “I’ve got this” when host Nick Lachey would ask her if she wanted to continue?
Making it worse–the yodelly country singer TOOK the 50,000, rather than face off against a cute 10 year old. I can’t say that I blame her. But inexplicably, the 10 year old had LOST the round. In other words, if the yodeler had hung in there, she would have advanced to the next round instead. Argh. Foiled.
The “101”, who are a group of “fans” and “bloggers” (whatever that means) who vote and determine which singers advance, are shady as eff, if you ask me. The show feels totally rigged, which makes it even better to mock. When it returns to NBC on July 11, I may liveblog this thing, just for fun.
