    Move over Susan Boyle

    You would think by now, that judges would learn not to judge people on the way they look..before they perform

    "It is one thing to make a picture of what a person looks like, it is another thing to make a portrait of who they are" - Paul Caponigro

    Constructive Critique of my photographs is always appreciated

    Being critical, his voice still needs a few more years of training and maturity, but he could end up being another Mario Lanza.
    She's not as good as him.

    But they do work well together, and who knows, with a good stylist for him and few more years of solid training and practice, they could be very good indeed.
    All my photos are taken with recycled pixels.

    Wisdom, is knowing not to serve it in a fruit salad.

    Mmmm, and, more to the point, who is Mark L - and what is his singing like? In front of a large theatre audience! Ha!

    But seriously, the song is a great song to start with - "The Prayer", sung once by another famous Charlotte, Church, and Josh Groban. I do have the CD entitled "Charlotte Church - Enchantment". Yes, "Prayer" and "Church". How well they go together. Especially at Easter time.
    And it was real music too which is becoming harder to find amongst the rubbish our media force feeds us nowadays.
    And they were only 16 and 17 years old too. Well done!

    Thanks Rick for posting.

    comments and criticisms are always appreciated.
    Unless I post into the "NOT FOR CRITIQUE" section then the above doesn't apply.

    I'd have to ask why it wasn't edited out? Because it's all part of Cowell's "shtick" that's why. The negative comment then gives the contestant more emotional buy-in from the viewer when they do produce something good - I bet the twittersphere was abuzz after this and there will likely be a nice ratings boost for the finals (assuming they have finals?).

    I generally don't watch these shows because I find them too contrived - more "soap opera" than real opera. The kid can sing though, and bonus marks for the Hendrix t-shirt .

    Would Cowell have a sour taste in his mouth? Maybe...all the way to the bank! Cowell knows exactly what he is doing...



    Cheers.
    Phil.

    Some Nikon stuff. I shoot Mirrorless and Mirrorlessless.

    Didn't really hear the comments from judges, I was too amazed. What got me stirred is my son is that size, but 6'7" in height. So I had two reasons to be emotional.
