I do admit to hating it when Simon makes comments on their looks.

Unless they're talking about how they look while singing (making weird faces, over-gesturing, etc) - those comments are spot on.

but Zoot, we aren't making fun of this guy or being rude, really....we are just saying that he did a horrendous job at trying to sing a U2 song...plain and simple...judging someone as they try to sing a U2 song isn't being rude, we're simply evaluating

it was a good effort, but a horrible performance

Well... I guess I disagree then slightly. I thought he did a good job with the verses but a horrible job with the chorus cos he couldn't reach those high notes. I think Hawkmoon was the wrong song choice for him.

Zoots, if you laugh at an Idol contestant, that's no more or less rude than me laughing at this clip.

Why? Cos he was brave enough to record himself singing just to be insulted left and right by juvenile posters who hide behind computers?

This is what I don't get about the whole "make fun of the person singing" business!

I think sometimes insults on the internet are more about one-upmanship of snark rather than insulting the person/thing in question.

I have to agree. My 9 year old daughter begs me to record her singing High School Musical stuff to put on youtube. So she's got like three videos up there now...I mean, she was 8 when she started, so how good could they be, right? Man, I couldn't believe the comments...there were alot of nice ones, yes. And there there are people who are just entirely heartless. I mean, what the hell?? She's 8! I think they must either be children themselves or if they are adults they are the true failures at life with no kids of their own. How do you heartlessly trash a little girl trying her voice out for the first time?? I mean really crude vulgar insulting gros stuff!! I couldn't believe what I was reading, to be honest. Yeah she looks like she's having the time of her life and maybe people resent that. I dunno....but I had to take the comments down...it would literally break my heart if - all singing ability or lack thereof on her part aside - if she let that stop her from at least giving a good go at it.

This dude...yeah, he's not great. But I dunno....he's got guts. It's ok. It's youtube, y'know?


ETA: Oh great. I just listened to his BLT.

YouTube has some of the worst insults I've ever seen. I avoid the comments like the plague.

There's something about that site, I guess, that brings out all the assholes. Or brings out the asshole in people.

why is it that there is practically no filter on youtube? it would be so easy to filter certain phrases/words out in the comment section...and then a few other things could easily be done by youtube mangement...I don't understand this at all...

on listening to this guy again, yes, the verses aren't THAT bad

Despite this guy's voice, it doesn't bother me one bit that he video taped himself singing hawkmoon 269 and posted on youtube...who am I to say he is a failure at life? I mean, I can express my opinion of his singing but I don't even know him...

American Idol though, c'mon, sometimes it's just too freakin funny, and you have to laugh...

When I watched him singing Hawkmoon, I just couldn't leave an abusive comment. You can't do that. He's got more balls than all the idiots who abuse him, and probably never leave their computers.

I abused the SBS cover video though, the one that said it's "so much better than the original."

You'll notice the comments are now banned.

No, not on Hawkmoon. I left an abusive comment on the Velvet Dress video though.




For the record, I have posted covers on youtube as well, so I have balls too.
