The Winner Is… Episode Two (VIDEO)

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.

    Hahaha this show IS terrible, but so terrible, that I can’t even watch it. It’s THAT bad. But I will probably read what you say about it ;)

  • Frederick

    Has Lakisha been shown yet? She’s like the only thing i DO want to watch/read about.

  • Kariann Hart

    Grace is so annoying and her voice is nothing special. Not sure if I will attempt to watch this show again.

  • Miss Blue

    She was on the first episode. Lost in the first round.

  • Miss Blue

    That kid was awful. The adults weren’t much better, lol.

  • Jake W.

    None of these people are worth getting near that million dollars.

  • Incipit

    Heh. I was tempted, and I clicked on this, but even in my complete boredom with The Voice this season and the Slow-Mo state of general career news around the Idolsphere…I still couldn’t pull the trigger on watching an entitled kid and yet ‘another’ country singer. Just…no.

  • MichaelG (MikhailXO)

    Still trying to figure out if it’s worthy of hate-watching.

    And yes… that uber annoying, self-pleased little gaden gnome needed to be taken down a notch.

    This kid reminded me the one that sang Tomorrow to Simon Cowell last year on X-Factor. Annoying, just like all the child prodigies.
