And then Britney cried that someone let onto stage a "singer" who was clearly put out there for the judges to eviscerate and humiliate for the crowd's enjoyment. He had the audacity to fight back. This is your "reality tv," America.

Can't we just, at the start of the next episode, wait until all the contestants, judges and audience are in position inside the studio and then lock the doors from the outside?

I remember turning on TV and seeing entertainers. People who'd learnt to sing, been found by producers, trained and practised in clubs. They appeared and entertained me.

I hope she looked at Britney Spears right after that. Voice doubling and major pro tools corrections were the old school version of auto tuning.

I hate several things about that:

1.- Demi Lovato retarded notion that she worked "really really hard" for her dreams when she's just a Disney fabricated starlet. I'd love to see her struggle making it without that support.

2.- Britney's idiotic "who let you on stage?" Huh, the producers, you schmuck, he's one of the contestants. Also the same ones also paying your salary, so shut it.

3.- The black guy white knighting those coonts. Why? Don't be such a sycophant. Enjoy it like Simon did. L.A. Reid is his name, no? Retarded name too. Sounds like a sneakers brand.

Two things

A) I hate that Britney and Demi were all, "What a creeper" with this guy because he called one of them out.

And

B) what are you doing on stage anyway guy except but to snap at someone? You're over thirty, you're not going to be on X-Celeb-Factor-Force-Caliber. Successful troll is successful.

The Great EZE: Yeah, it was a good crack but I have 0 respect for people who try to gain fame, fortune, and success in their field via a game show.


I'll accept it, but my rule is that, once you put yourself in the mix, you get held to the exact same standards as the pros. Once in a while someone actually manages to meet those standards and just genuinely needed a chance to get in front of someone and scouted. Kelly Clarkson, Susan Boyle, Chris Daughtry, Jennifer Hudson and Carrie Underwood work as examples in the singing competitions. (And also Carly Rae Jepsen, who was on Canadian Idol.) But more typically, it pretty much boils down to a tweet Grant Mickelson (Taylor Swift's guitarist) made the night of the Voice finale:

RT @LongLiveTS @GrantMickelson Who do you want to win The Voice!? - Someone that everybody will still remember a year from now.

After the season's over, you're thrown to the wolves. Sink or swim. If you're really that good, you'll be fine. It doesn't even matter if you actually won or not. If not, there'll be another meat market next year.

Do some research BEFORE spouting off. Of the 4 (albeit this is a low bar) LA Reid has the most credibility.

Have I questioned his credibility or achievements? No.

I said it's dumb that he's white knighting them. Nobody talked to him yet he's acting "offended" when the guy just put that Lovaturd coont in her place.
And then I proceeded to mock his name because it sounds like L.A. Gear. And it turns out L.A. isn't even his name so it's just dumb posturing.

And what credibility? Making farking JUSTIN BIEBER famous? He should be flailed with a ninetails because of that.

Pluck Yew is right. LA Reid does have the most credibility. He's been around for a long, long time. For a while, him and his partner Babyface owned radio-friendly R&B (late 80s, early 90s). If it was R&B during that time period, LA and Babyface were the reason why you were listening to it on your drivetime.

Then he married the delicious Pebbles, who wasn't considered the most talented, but she had hits. Pebbles then proceeded to ass-rape TLC out of their rightfully gained profits. I had never had a bad feeling towards LA until that shiat came out. Seems like par for the course, though. Artists raping other artists, be it R&B or rap. But LA Reid isn't a nobody. He's not a hack singer, and he was never chosen because somebody though they could market his looks. LA Reid is a mover and a power player. Or at least, he was.

Spears and Lovato are nowhere near his credentials.

LaFace records was the shiat in the era you mention. You assessment of the panel is correct.

That said, it seems like they simply grabbed a cameraman or a producer and threw them on stage for an intentional troll, because there's NO WAY someone that old would end up on American Idol, which is a small part of what Brittney was attempting to get across.

Isn't X-Factor the show with the different age brackets, including one for people over 30? It was probably still a setup but that should settle the "too old" comments. The attempt to buck the blatant agism of these shows is somewhat admirable so X-Factor gets only a slightly less vigorous jerking off motion of dismissal form me.

I'm going to believe that he knew exactly what he was doing. When he walked off that stage, knowing he'd never be on TV again, he said to himself, "TOTALLY worth it."

Just saw that movie a couple of weeks ago. Really good stuff. There's the immediate thrill of the concept -- wouldn't it be awesome to gun down everyone who pisses you off? -- but it also explores how absurd and impractical that idea is.

And yes, "Shakes the Clown" was awesome.

I love that movie, and like someone else said, it's both amazingly funny, amazingly depressing at the same time. I actually liked a lot of the speech/monologues the guy gave, made me think a bit, which is unheard of.

And why is everyone surprised at the fabricated drama of a 'reality' TV show? It's what the thing is supposed to be. They let the 'trolls' on to troll, the stupids mock them, and the nice guy white knights, just on script.
