Got Something to Add?
extremely bored and did not enjoy how every line trailed off into the unhearable. there's nothing special about her voice and let's just be serious....if javier and dia can barely sell 10K in the first week, she is going to sell 14 copies in the first year.
I'd wondered why they hadn't done one of those yet. I liked it when they did at least one per episode last season.
@thelimoboy if sales is all important, is rihanna more talented than fantasia? I think americans should know what is good and what is bad music. Adele doing very well and scooping every single award is an example. America wake up and listen to good music. I hate seeing talented musicians not doing well while nicki minaj is selling loads.
@Mikhail XO LOL
@moedi04 I totally agree with what you wrote, moedi04, especially the part about talented musicians not doing well, while "singers" like Nicki Minaj sell loads! I believe it's not just Americans who should know what is good music, but other nationalities as well, and regardless of their age! I have a teenage daughter who doesn't like Nicki Minaj, and she especially hates Kesha! I'm glad that even at a young age, she already knows what good music is, unlike some of today's youth.
@moedi04 Hear! Hear!
@moedi04@thelimoboy Sales is important when talking about sales and commercial performance, but nowhere do I make the connection that it directly reflects talent. My comment about Sarah Golden was that I found her boring and not very special. My exaggerated comparison of my prediction of her future sales to Javier and Dia was to point out how those two past finalists did not perform commercially well despite how many found them both to be very unique and talented.
Another issue is the judgement of what is "good" and "bad" music. It is ultimately subjective so I don't think you can deem that music not conforming to what you believe to be "good music" therefore as "bad music". I agree that Adele is getting well-deserved recognition for her hard work and talent, but I would use caution in using her as an example because Sarah Golden is lightyears away from what I would consider Adele-level. You're doing Sarah Golden no favours by putting her up against Adele. This applies even to Nicki Minaj, Ke$ha, Rihanna, or any other artist you have categorized as untalented or makers of bad music. You cannot authoritatively assign absolute values to the creativity, work ethic, or sound that they each possess. While Adele can produce a heartfelt song about human emotions, you can't say that the eccentric rhymes or ideas Nicki Minaj come up with are objectively inferior. You are entitled to your opinion, but you have to acknowledge that it is your opinion. Nicki Minaj is then not inherently bad music, but bad music in your opinion or music that doesn't conform to your preferences.
So yeah, I never said anything about sales as a gauge of talent as your reply implies I did. I wanted to clear that up by elaborating on my point and also address your concerns about America's taste in music.
