A guaranteed talent-free zone, OP. It takes a special brand of no-talent to murder Blondie's "One Way or Another."
They are supposed to look cute. Talent is meaningless today - in all areas of entertainment.
I've stopped paying any attention to these young generation types. 1D, Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, none of them can do anything. They have no talent. They are inventions. Scum.
of course they can't. Satan Cowell put them together. Why anyone ever thought that man knew a thing about good music and talent is beyond me. He knows how to make money but not good music. In the last 10 years he really has helped ruin the music industry further. At least when he started out he was confined to the UK.
R2, it's not only talent: looks are apparently meaningless as well. I had never seen a sadder collection of fucking ugly, gangly and graceless teens in my life. Nowadays anything can be sold if it's packaged right and relentlessly promoted by a good team of publicists.
