I’m not sure what you consider "talent"– I think the kid is a big yawn. He’s a very talented parrot. He knows how to mouth all the sounds and mimic emotion very well. I couldn’t imagine actually paying to listen to him. And I couldn’t imagine actually searching that sound out; to me, it is painfully banal.
Of those remaining, who would you pay to listen to? pb
Going all the way back to Season 1, I would pay to see
1) Kelly Clarkson,
2) Melinda Doolittle,
3) Fantasia Barrino,
and I’m kind of stuck right there. Maybe Sayesha, I could see her in the touring company of Smokey Joe’s Cafe. She was as good as anyone I saw in revues like that.
