* As a rock fan, I can't help but find what I'm calling Alien Ant Farming of all these songs a bit cringeworthy. The session musicians must have been embarrassed to record it, I sure am listening to it! Oh yeah, I already hate this song and am having trouble deciding whether or not this is vocally better.
* Talent shows have the tendency to produce crap because the artists are based around hype, not genuine talent. If someone actually has enough talent - in addition to some viable ideas and such - chances are someone will enjoy the music if it's any good. This kind of crap is forced rubbish, like some kind of machine, and in my opinion not how music should be. That being said, there are some talented people uncovered by these things but I think they do represent a minority as such. Still though, if people want to enjoy this sort of garbage, go for it - it's better than no music at all (as long as I don't have to hear it I suppose). Oh and on this actual song, it clearly isn't suited to an 80s synth dressover made of fail and it sounds absolutely horrendous.
