I'm sure that enjoying this stage of these shows as opposed to the bit at the end with good singers makes me a bad person. But I'm the happiest bad person I know.

It's always refreshing to see that we Americans do not have the market cornered on the morbidly obese.

Fat parents in slo-mo + Clubbed to Death = awesome

I was wondering if that was slowed down or just... well, five stars in that case.

Xenocide
I love the tense music that plays as the horrible walrus-creature enters the room, but what really clinches it is Simon's expression.

Caminante Nocturno
That entire sequence was like something out of a Guy Richie film.

I was expecting that old bitty to reach under a couple rolls and pull out some sub machine guns. Disappointed, but 5 stars nonetheless.

I find it much more entertaining to watch a hopelessly deluded & spoiled child being told the word "No." for the first time in his/her life than watching retards being trotted out for the amusement of the masses.
Goethe and ernie
5 stars for that monstrous mother alone. She's utterly horrific.

Where's Ryan Seacrest to keep the wave of angry parents away from Simon?
Xenocide
Seacrest did try to stop her. He currently resides in the magical city hidden between this woman's fat rolls.

Charles
Hell?

Rodents of Unusual Size
I don't usually root Simon on, but good god he was on the mark on this one.

That dress is what they use to cover Seattle when it rains.

There is so much to love about this clip, if you're a bad person who takes delight in the failure and suffering of others, which I am.

Even if she was a good singer, I can't imagine she'd have much of a shot with her body type (hard to tell if that's glandular or self inflicted.)

The world of pop culture is not known for its fairness in judgement or open-mindedness.

Her heart will go on for another, eh...19 years max.

I wish they'd quit paying Simon to be a dick.

Isn't singing a learned skill anyway? I want to see piano idol. Take people who have had no professional instruction and see who has "talent" at making it up on the piano.
Spoonybard
She sings way out of key and apparently can't tell. She also couldn't make it through the whole song before running out of steam. Maybe with professional instruction and a lot of practice she could overcome those things, but a natural talent for singing in tune is as important in this arena as good vision and depth perception are for an olympic archer. Plus, she doesn't come off as someone with the self-discipline or ambition to refine and maintain her performance art as a professional. I mean, she ran out of breath during a major audition and whined "I can't do anymore!" Being the best takes natural talent AND hard work and she doesn't appear to have reserves of either to draw upon.

Anyway, this clip was beautifully edited. Well done whatever show this is.

CharlesSmith
So, what, you think he should have passed her because she could theoretically learn to sing at some later time? So everyone passes then?

Charles
Yeah, Spoon, whatever show THIS is. Anyway, I can't claim to know whether or not she's a good singer normally, but I can say that it's very likely that her main problem here is that this is an extremely high-stress situation (thanks largely to Simon), and she does not have any self esteem or confidence as a buffer against that pressure. Thus, even if she is really a decent singer for whatever events she supposedly won trophies at, all of that falls away when she enters the room with Simon and the other judges to audition for a show where she could have the chance to win far more than just a trophy.

But yeah, she's fat and her mother is a hambeast, and that's hilarious.

Unskilled girl in ugly dress sings, the baron and baroness Harkonnen dispute results.

The Enigma Variations was a nice touch.

Simon Cowell is one of my favorite celebrities. Him reality checking these fatties into oblivion made me extra happy.
APE_GOD
Celebrity. Huh. Interesting term for him.

"Just downright ignorance."

The same response from Mum after the doctor told her that Emma isn't eating right and getting enough exercise.
Rodents of Unusual Size
It's ignorance on the doctor's part. They can't live off of those tiny sausages...they need the great big ones to feed their whole family. Sausages also make people sing better.

Ignorant people just don't know these things.

I wonder if they have to get permission to air this stuff. I mean, when you think about it, it's some pretty life ruining shit, being ridiculed and all in front of the whole nation.
kennydra
You probably have to give them permission to air whatever they want in order to compete, if that's legal. I have no idea how those things work, so I may be (and probably am) totally wrong, but that's my assumption and I'm sticking to it.

AgentOrange
Yeah, there's now way they'd let em' get away without airing this.

Unsung
They agreed to come to a show that will be watched by millions of strangers, they kinda should`ve thought of that beforehand. I assume only the most earnest and naive are undeterred.

Hooper_X
The way it works is apparently "If we let you audition, you agree to let us show every fucking thing you do from the moment you get in line to the moment you leave the parking lot."

Basically, the kind of stupid that says "I can totally win American Idol/X Factor/Talent Show Du Jour despite an utter lack of talent whatsoever" is the same kind of stupid that says "I can flip out and act like a total fucking goon in front of a dozen TV cameras and THERE'S NO WAY THEY'LL EVER AIR IT."

APE_GOD
It's called a talent release.

Everyone signs them, never thinking for a moment what that actually means.

Whoever sold her that dress spent the rest of the week either laughing his ass off or feeling guilty about it.

"helicopter parents"? Under what set of circumstances could they actually find themselves airborne?
