This is when Youtube gets the algorithm right and drops something like this on your home page.

Sparkle ponies love this style of treacle schlock. It's universal for talent TV extravaganza! The Ukrainian Russian Vitas made a career from this, but luckily he was a weirdo and made it strange for a while.

Sorry OP. Steff is far prettier, and without the angst.

R2 While I appreciate your contribution, I have no idea what you're saying. Are you saying this Chinese guy is a weirdo? Because he's on a Chinese show, but singing in french, so I don't understand how Ukrainian/ Russian is a factor in his talent.

he's Kazakh not Chinese

But the Show is Chinese that he's competing on.

But who cares!!! Did you watch the clip?? Holy fuck, the guy is talented as hell!!!

VItas is a star in Russia who got his start with easy theatrical vocal show-off.

Its a very old trope in talent competitions. Vitas is talented (and was weirdly cute too when young) büt used quite maudlin, dramatic, theatrical effects. It's about taste. This is the same for the object of your affection, Dimash.

The TV show knows how to manipulate with very effective editing and overblown reaction shots, guiding the view at home (you, the sparkle pony) in the proper reaction of AWE.

It's not that the young men have no talent, it's that its treacle to anyone who has good taste in singing and performance. Of course, we can enjoy it as camp, as I do with Vitas.

The poster above showed you Steff to help educate your taste, so you could see Steff does it without the same kind of theatrics, a simpler presentation, although he pours on the charm in a different way.

I'm sorry my snobby snarky input is beyond your comprehension.

Isn’t he the one who claimed he was being held hostage by the Chinese who won’t let him leave or go anywhere?
